    No kidding, and look at his constant accusations of us having "unbalanced footwork." Ballerinas we are not, but he was not exactly tripping the light fantastic himself.

    Kendo headgear has a hard throat protector, and a fencing mask usually has a bib to protect the neck (it's only meant to protect against a fencing sword though). Lynn Thompson's group is known to use cervical collars as part of their protective equipment.

    Invest in a few leather gorgets. Your can get decent-but-not-very-pretty ones online for $40 or so.

    I can't reccoment Kendo headgear - it's very encumbering and doesn't protect the ears well or the back of the head at all. When I 'fight' with shinai I just wear hand cover, a cup and a fencing mask but - it hurts but I've never borken anything more than a finger. With foam weapons the gear your are wearing plus a gorget should be more than sufficient and bordering on overkill.

    Oh no no no. Always bring us this stuff, just cool down your emotions. It appeared that you were taking this WAY to serious.

    This is some funny ****. The minute he threw out that BS certified and patented I knew this was going to end poorly.

    Oh and this is now in YMAS. This is entirely too much fun to be in the toilet.

    Something came up in this thread, "traditionalists" vs. "traditional martial arts." Hating traditionalists is not the same as hating TMA:

    TMA = some old fashioned, heavily codified martial art. This could include some pretty backwards hand-to-hand training systems, but it could also include some really great stuff like Muay Thai and Judo.

    Traditionalist = someone who likes tradition purely for tradition's sake. ("Kung Fu was proven on the ancient battle fields of China, so we must not let any techniques change because they will lose their deadliness.") Quite often this view accompanied by a no-sparring training methodology. ("I like to focus on Kung Fu forms and not on sparring, because sparring is sloppy and can develop bad habits.")

    Traditionalists are often bad for TMA (especially since tried-and-true arts usually had sparring in the past,) and are often practicing arts that aren't really that traditional (ie BJJ is older than Aikido.)

    so he showed up to one...looked...well..about the same as many or all of you, and then resorted to trolling? Was he trolling before he came to one? I'm confused, only...I have an excuse (tiny mind).

    Any other FMA's train espada y daga with the daga in pakal grip? got to admit I am not a big fan of that grip,

    My other question would be, if someone has 2 weapons, why not use them? he swaps to saksak occasional to use it, but very rarely uses the two weapons in concert? (Maybe I should raise a new thread in the FMA forum?)

    I've seen people go pakal for EyD (including one of my students), but I don't think I've ever seen it taught as such. I don't care for pakal in general, but a quote from Hock Hockheim ("why would you limit yourself to only learning half the ways to use a knife?") made me work with it more.

    I think that was a result of him not having done a lot of sparring. If he's used to wooden weapons and no protective gear, then his level of sparring would necessarily have to be at a much lower intensity. Against a longer weapon, he should have stayed outside of largo as much as possible, used the stick as cover when bridging the gap, and stayed in corto to stab the crap out of the bat-wielder.
