    Limits of Martial Arts

    Recently I have played the part of the rational skeptic in far too many conversations about MAs and self defence sysems. This, coming from a JJJ guy, should be enough to indicate the overall quality of the matters we talked about.
    Therefore, I would like to compile a list of things that are self evident and yet seem to be difficult to understand for cultis... ehm, devoted MA students.

    1) Guns kill. Even a .22. Even if you are a *insert high degree" of *insert MA*
    2) Large groups of untrained, angry people are superior to you. Same as above.
    3) Sadism is not a valid training method. Yes, Kenshiro was cool, but people don't explode.
    4) No, really they don't.
    5) Katanas can be considered objects of art, but if you want to protect yourself buy a gun.

    Well, that will suffice for now. Feel free to troll me for repeating things that are explained better elsewhere, but I really needed to vent some stress.

    Thank you Captain Obvious!

    Other things that can kill even Ninjer Masters:
    Cars
    Falling off ladders
    Heart disease

    Other weapons of no use in a modern society as a personal protection device:
    Pikes
    Lances
    Crossbows

      Why? Were you not invited to the special kids disco?

          Idiocy? How so? Pray tell how the lance is an effective personal protection device in the modern world?

          Until then I will continue to treat you like the moron you are.

            That's why I love starting futile threads like this one: even if the bait is obvious, there is always someone who will bite and start vomiting insults. Some will even act as if they haven't actually understood what this is all about.

            So, to answer your question, let me say that I do not consider a lance, a pike, a crossbow or any other similar weapon an effective personal device, and that I do not mind at all your behaviour. Please, continue jabbering.

              Just do yourself a favor and post threads like this in Trollshido, because they're usually not funny enough for MABS.

                      Quite true. I should have posted this thread there. I am sorry for this, if a moderator could just wipe away this thread I would grateful.

                          Guilt and shame cause pain.
                          Pain is weakness leaving the body.
                          Guilt and shame make you stronger.

                          I'm sorry but apparently the spirit of Bullshido would suggest me to keep my feelings and my money.
