    My school has pretty extensive weapons training after black belt. We do stick, knife, chucks, and staff. My instructor is a alsoa certified Master of Arms in fencing and teaches that to interested students.

    Fencing is quite an underrated MA. The spanish, french and italian schools were quite sophisticated.

    Yes sir. Nothing special this year, but meat for the freezer. I'm almost to the point of hunting deer exclusively with bow (mostly a slug hunter until about five years ago when I got hooked on bow hunting)

    Still go to the range once in a while to throw a few .308 rounds through some paper. Old habits die hard.

    Personally, I find much more value in firearms training than most tradional weapons. The odds of me defending myself with chuck seems about zero. Stopping a home invasion with a double-tap or 00 buck is hopefully close to zero...but perhaps a little more realistic.

    Iron, you actually know lance? I'm impressed, wasn't aware anyone would do that anymore due to the garbage I get whenever I bring it up about the horses being in danger (Not garbage in itself, but Horses can be trained)

    Agree on the people underating fencing, Jolly, least some aspects. anyway, but then, my primary training is in rapier and sabre, so I'm biased to agree with you.

    Punching, on the one hand, you do have a definate point in firearms over traditional, however, you'd be amazed what substitutes. The Who Carries a Weapon thread has a lot of people that carry batons. You can get customs that are longer and sword will definately transfer to such.

    Are you saying your sword work transfers over to your baton work?

    I'm on a varsity fencing team, so I train "weapons" 2 hours a day. And on Saturday our girls are going to rock Cmorra's world.

    Oh, one other thing; I get really confused when people talk about non weapon training helping their weapons techniques, the principles being the same and whatever, and how training empty hand helps their weapon work. Nothing I've ever done that hasn't been directly fencing related has helped we win bouts, except in that it raised attributes such as strength and speed. Maybe in other arts it makes more sense, but to a fencer it sounds as silly as trying to improve your boxing by training bjj.
