Is it true that if you hold a black belt you have to register yourself with the state as a lethal weapon? I thought I remembered reading in BlackBelt magazine that this was a martial arts myth.

Your hands and feet, yes. It also means that you cannot wear socks, shoes, or gloves without a permit to carry concealed weapons. It's even worse for Systema guys who learn to "punch" with their chest: Because the authorities are loath to give concealed carry permits to Russophiles, it's not recommended to get a high rank in Systema in colder climes unless you have a very hairy chest.
Do not, I repeat, do not practice an art that teaches you to body check someone using your hips.

And don't forget knees. I can't wear pants in Utah, Hawaii, California, or Nevada, with out my concealed weapon permit. In Hawaii it's no big deal because I usually wear shorts or bathing clothing, but in Utah in the winter it's a real bitch. And when I forgot the permit at the ski resort... it was ugly (and real cold), but what can you do? The law is the law.

I only need to register my feet as lethal weapons during summer months, since I rarely change socks and wear plastic bags over my feet inside of my leather boots.

They're passing a law here to ban martial artists from catching planes, for fear of terrorist attacks or hijacking attempts.
The only option is for you to ride in the luggage compartment in a large dog cage.
A mate of mine also told me, that flight security here is putting a BJJ brown belt in the pilot's cabin as an extra precaution. They were going to use a TKD blackbelt, but apparantly they're not as reliable and can break the fuselage in half.

A myth? Obviously you haven't been to Ca. for w a while. Since obtaining my 8nc in fok yuuu I am now required to wear a condom at all times.
Be warned, Fienstien plans on putting this requirement in the next gun control legislation she authors.
