    I'd love to run into phil in a self-defence situation. I'm pretty sure I could steal his wallet, punch him in the face and elbow his head off all in the time it takes him to choose whether to attack me with his small gun, his large gun, his small prodding stick thing, his flashlight, one of 3 knives concealed on his person AND a pair of nunchucks.
    What would you do if he used all of them at once?

    He can use the weapons but can he USE the weapons to fight?
    He probably has a utility belt that opens when he says "Bullshido member"
    But i think his knife proof vest will get in the way of him arming himself.
    So yea, supercrap has a pretty good chance of mugging Phil blind... that or take off his glasses.

    The Okinawans train with the Eiku which is a boat oar. I always thought that training with this "weapon" would be a waste of time.

    You've got a point there. But I do associate a sword as a weapon, even if it is an antiquated one that would never get used.

    By the way, excuse my typo, the boat oar is spelled eku.

    Who says?
    I bought a sword when I was visiting Spain, and when I got back I took it to my friend's birthday party.
    While I was showing it to them, their drunken aunt got ahold of it and started swinging it at people.
    I rushed her, took the sword, jumped from the second story rear deck, and hid out in the woods untill she drove home.
    Besides, with Missouri's concealed carry laws being what they are, sword canes are coming back into style.

    See, this is why the term 'traditional' martial arts is a misnomer, the real 'traditional' guys were much more pragmatic than a lot of the people doing TMA today. What's the point in training in improvised weapons that you'll never find lying around, why not train with a bar stool or a pool cue instead? Much more practical than some pre-industrial rice thresher or mill handle.
