Test it - does it work?


If it doesn't, ask your instructor to show you why. Just because you couldn't make it work, doesn't necessarily mean it doesn't work at all.

No problem, bro. I agree with you completely. Testing should be thorough before making a decision about whether something is useful or not. I've run across both ends ends of the spectrum - things I thought would work that didn't, and things that I thought would NOT work that did.

You have to try, to be able to find out!

That's why I started practicing MA with Iaido. Once you have learned the moves, no partner is necessary. Just a room with a high ceiling and a hard wood floor. Come to think of it, those are tough to come by, also.

Number one rule: Turning up for training with the blood of the last class is NOT cool... it's disgusting, as it means you probably still have the sweat from the last class too.

also: You can't always see what the other guy has in his hand/shoe, so treat every attack as a weapon attack.

Blood doesn't wash off very well from white surfaces.. You do know that right? But that aside it is indeed prudent to wash whatever training wear you use.

There are ways... but it's also possible to tell washed blood from unwashed.

(but when you're as quick as me, you can get out of the way of their gushing blood)

Don't forget that promptly soaking a bloodied item in COLD water usually dissolves the blood away.
