Interesting topic...
Modern weapons...like pistol and knife,
CQC is very different than say your average Tae Kwon do or Kung Fu study. It's simpler in most ways. The hardest part is using the weapon. I mean actualy stabbing someone or shooting someone. Lots of mental stuff here. As the average citizen, could you actually pull the trigger to end someone's life? Using a gun is not self defense...it is self protection....Your not defending your attacking. It gets even worst when you are up close using a knife.
To answer your question...no...I do not think your local dojo can train you in the mindset that you would have to have to be successful in using a weapon. I am not talking about the psycho rage that you see on tv. But to use a weapon, well lets say that is totaly out of the scope of most MA training.

Huh. For once, I agree with Ed totally. I never bought into the weapons training I did over the years, and don't even bother with it now at all.

Kubotan: modernly put on a keychain. An implement to strengthen fists for punching and using on pressure/striking points. Here are a few examples:

I was actually going to get one of these. Does the style matter? Oh I also seen some made of metal and wood.
