    The main issue with putting the weapon in the rear hand is range not power. I can generate enough power with a stick to break bones with either hand forward. I also train to be able to switch hands at will. Power comes from training with heavy sticks and beating on things. I don't put a weak side forward because I don't consider myself as having a weak side. Maybe when I first started but I drilled that out a long time ago.

    Or better yet, go to a paintball range and spike the opposing team's drinking water with laxatives.

    The obsessing over what side is over definitely comes from the strikers in our club, not the FMA influence on our club. In general we train weapon in left hand forward, weapon in right hand forward, and weapon in right hand back, but NOT weapon in left hand back. (This is gets into spear/staff stuff that is beyond the scope of this thread since we don't do that at Tipons.)

    We also have a tendency to switch back and forth between which hand we have the weapon in, but this has to do with not having as good of arm conditioning as FMA groups and our arms getting tired.
