There's a reason that the kendo stick is popular with the WWF/backyard wrestling crowd. They make a lot of noise and easily seen welts but do very little beyond superficial damage. At best (or worst) you'll break a finger and as the vid shows if you don't mind some pain you can just soak a smack or two and disarm your opponent and eat his delicious face. Imagine the anatomical horror an actual TRAINED fighter could've done if he was equally as bug **** insane as Mr Straight Jacket.

There are limitations to all fighting methods. Get a Smith & Wesson .38 Bodyguard.
ROFLOL, And the winner is!!!!!!!!

1. Really? The Kata argument again?

3. Oh no, I'm right there with you on the BOB thing.
I have a very personal dislike of Kata ... but that's where I'll leave it. The reasons I dislike it and don't find it helpful at all, are my own reasons.
I'm still open to the idea that they can be useful, but I can tell you now I personally don't find any worth in my fighting ability from it.
I think one of THE most important things when learning to fight ... is fitness.
Like I said......

Knowing is not enough, you must apply...
...Willing is not enough you must do
