Hell, I started doing Arnis in 1991, have long association with blades and in fact treat it as a bit of a specialty of mine, and still wouldn't call myself a "blade expert"

    To (hopefully faithfully) quote Chas Clements: "how can he call himself an expert with knives, but doesn't have any scars?"
    I like your style field lol.

    The stick is there to teach you the proper motions. Think training wheels *thumbsup* You know the circular motion in Arnis? Yup.

    Ha! That sounds EXACTLY like something Chas would say.
    "Judo is a study of techniques with which you may kill if you wish to kill, injure if you wish to injure, subdue if you wish to subdue, and, when attacked, defend yourself" - Jigoro Kano (1889)
    ***Was this quote "taken out of context"?***

    "The judoist has no time to allow himself a margin for error, especially in a situation upon which his or another person's very life depends...."
    ~ The Secret of Judo (Jiichi Watanabe & Lindy Avakian), p.19

    "Hope is not a method... nor is enthusiasm."
    ~ Brigadier General Gordon Toney

    I side stepped, he missed. The first one dropped the blade comletely. The second had a bad grip on the "blade" and as he hit the table, his grip was so poor that the knife slid into his hand. On the other hand, I've had my neck hurt as hell for 4 days when one of my fellow MA nuts who did filipino kuntao struck my neck accidentally with the same 2-line the second "master" used, and his wooden knife remained firmly in his hands.
    Wow.

    Two people.

    In Serbia.

    Stick equals knife.

    The world taekwondo federation's acronym is truly apt.
