    Although they've been uncharacteristically quiet for a couple of weeks, I love this blog:
    http://flinttinderwood.blogspot.com/

    They seem to have done a lot of thinking about killing all sorts of things that go bump in the night -- especially zombies.

    Last month, they did two weeks on Filipino Martial Arts as the perfect anti-zombie system. They didn't recommend going unarmed against zombies.

    While that is a pretty cool website, I disagree with the logic of "You should study stick and knife fighting styles because you never want to fight a zombie unarmed."

    It reeks of
    "You shouldn't train in any sort of ground fighting for self defense because in the streets, you never want to be fighting on the ground."

    I'm not sure we're talking within the same fantasies here.

    If there's one thing I've learned from nihilistic zombie movies, it's not especially safe to fight hordes of zombies even when armed. I can only imagine that fighting zombies crowds while completely unarmed would exponentially worsen your chances of survival.

    Perhaps the lesson Gil and Flint want to sink in is that you should always improve your chances by having something at hand to bash in zombie heads? Is it really too much to ask to have a stick at hand during the zombie apocalypse?

    I suspect the same rules apply to robot apocalypses too. You don't really want to be hitting terminator skulls with your bare fists, do you?

    I think Gil and Flint would always prefer you go down fighting than meekly throw up your empty hands and become a zombie smorgasbord or Matrix Machine battery. (See this post illustrating the ultimate in makeshift weapons gear: http://flinttinderwood.blogspot.com/...-prepared.html.)

    Besides, most FMA have an empty hand component too, don't they?

    I didn't actually play that one, but I played the hell out of RE4. I thought the big hullabaloo about 5 being set in Africa and shooting dark enemies was a little weird considering that nobody cared about killing an entire Spanish village in 4.

    I loved RE4. Murdering the residents of not-Spain was strangely satisfying.

    In response to the OP, I'd think a combination of Judo and some sort of sword/naginata/polearm martial art would be the best. Striking is obviously useless unless you're Kenshiro and can explode their head.

    So in conclusion, the best martial art is Hokuto Shinken

    Ever since they stopped being zombies, it stopped being fun.
    Now all the ridiculous Japanese attempts at sci-fi anime-esque plotlines are starting to rear their heads.

    The series is going to ****.

    Well, it's a hard balance to keep old fans happy and bring new fans in, too.
    Let's just hope they don't invent a Third kind of zombie.
