So is that boxing and shotokan?

If so your shotokan teacher ought to know about improvised weapons, including pens, if he doesn't, find a new teacher.

Boxing coaches usually know about boxing.

The entire conception of kobudo (Okinawan) weaponry revolved around being able to adapt to objects at hand.

Why are you studying an art like that when you either a) totally disagree with those principles or b) you just don't know what the hell you're talking about but have gone too far now that you can't shut yourself up?

Sounds like you're just a kid with a potty mouth that knows it all.

You'll look back on these posts a few months from now and regret it.

I've never heard of karate being combined martial arts besides wado ryu. Sounds like your school's a bit flaky.

im pretty sure that was a payout, and you yourself even said you have never trained in a ma before.




What gives you this ridiculous idea? Was it this post to Harlan in response to you, a post that was obviously sarcasm?

Quote:

But Harlan, he does have an entire year of Shotokan and 3 years of boxing under his belt. I'm sure he knows quite well what he is talking about.

I mean who are we? What do we know? I know i'm certainly oblivious to any form of legitimate martial arts or the needs of successful self defense.




Since you don't seem able to keep up i'll be more direct. If you can't catch something as simple as the heavy sarcasm that was laid out there then there are other issues you may need to address. I have more than 20 years of martial arts training (yes longer than you have been alive) in addition to my current job and training with military police. I know a bit about improvised weapons and have seen first hand what a pen can do to someone. Unfortunately the pen is not mightier than the ASP. As i've said, your not getting it, come back in a few years after more training and experience.

Forgive me for not knowing all about you and your ma background laf, not that your profile even hints that youve ever done it before, and yes thats their website.

Thanks for the link Laf. I don't know anything about this S.T.A.R. program (but because it is in my backyard, Massachusetts, I'm guess I should learn).

Crab...after looking at the focus of your school, I can see why they don't advocate weapons training. I'm not saying anything against your school...it is what it is.

we do weapons training, nunhucks, staffs etc. And weapons defence, but we dont do improvised weapons.
