    Even when telling people to **** off you can't support the claims you make.

    I'd never call myself an "expert" anything, but considering I'm better with staff and naginata than I am with a sabre, I'd say I'm above competent.

    As for my teacher, I mentioned his name a few posts back, that's really all there is to it, I don't put a lot of stock in lineage one way or the other so I never bothered to ask (Not knocking lineage, just don't care). But again, you've said the weapon takes seven years, that makes it ineffective by default.

    Ok, so where are we?

    The 3 section staff's pros and cons have been discussed - CHECK.
    Arguments and counter-arguments - CHECK.
    Anecdotal evidence - CHECK
    Video Evidence requested - CHECK
    Supplied - NO -
    Will it be supplied ?
    NO.

    Anything further to add gentlemen and ladies before I close this thread?

    Yes, I'll end this by saying BoD is a an idiot equating single conditions to larger issues.

    "cars need gasoline so by default they are ineffective since I can just feed a horse some hey."

    MJS is a mentally ill 50 year old virgin.

    That is all......

    The Three Seciond Staff CAN be effective under proper conditions and I have no arguement with that.

    However, a barstool can be an effective weapon under proper conditions.

    When looking at a weapon all factors of it's use and proficiency need be considered, from base effectiveness, to comparison to other weapons, to the time it takes to learn and train it.

    There in lies my issues with the 3ss as an effective weapon. Learning it requires a good deal more time than other weapons and it is not significantly superior to them (I'd argue it's inferior, but that's a secondary point and not important).

    That being said, my final thoughts lie in that anything can be effective and people can learn what they wish for fun or enjoyment (after all, I'm a swordsman of all things to be in the 21st century). But when it comes to base effectiveness, staves and truncheons are going to trounce something like the 3ss.

    Anyone who has experience with the 3SS and disagrees with you didn't have "proper" training. This is the summary of your entire argument and it is fallacy. Try again, but without the fallacy.

    That bullshit and the bane of your existance . If someone with proper training disagreed with me, he/she would at leat be able to give me an EDUCATED reason why. You don't have said education, you are a fiddler.
