How many of the trained folks here use their skills on a daily (or nearly so) basis? I'm not asking about the odd fight here and there. I mean people like war-time military or civilians, police officers, etc. Not casual use.
Do you use your skills in daily life?

No. Not really. I've been in situations where I did use it, but far from regularly (I was usually armed as well).

On the other hand, if you count situational awareness and presenting the image of a "hard target" then yes, I use it all the time. That is probably considered casual use though.

Yes, I was asking about physical use of the skills.
