    If it's wrong, I don't think I want to be right.

    Actually their new season began last night, so I suspect 6/24 to be the correct date for the MA episode.

    There's already a thread about this somewhere.

    I agree with whoever said that it'll probably just be that since guns exist, unarmed martial arts are BULLSHIT!

    And for self-defense, I gotta agree. Maybe some sumo for stopping the bum rush and creating space and angles to access your CCW, but other than that weapons are where it's at.

    Actually the Cheerleader show last night was upsetting. I want to check the facts before I comment, but it seems that they are at very high risk and people are ignoring it.

    They have the highest instance of head and neck injuries, resulting in paralysis or death, than any other sport.

    The show was pretty spot on, as usual, on the risk part. Cheerleading is a pretty risky considering girls are getting flung around and complex stunts without safety equipment. Even gymnasts have some protection.

    EDIT: I'm also glad they made the distinction between Acronyms and Initialisms.
