Lol

I tried to find a video of Ricky shooting himself in the foot on trailer Park boys. (no such luck)


How many times has that happened, anyway? At least twice...

Have you trained with that wakizashi?
Hah, no. But it's awful sharp and I think I get the gist of it. The pointy end goes in the other guy, right?

I think she's Asian.

Don't you know they're born with a full knowledge of martial arts?


The Olympic Committee did a study that found; Asians have more total body coordination, Europeans have more upper body strength, and Africans have the best Cardio endurance.

If you can line it up on his eye, it becomes hard to see.

There is a thrusting to use when pushing an edge not chopping with it ,that is how one should be used.

I'm still wondering why it's anyone's business to try to control the choices I have every right to make.

Sometimes, I want to go out and take all the classes and start learning how to shoot just because so many people squawk so loud about it. Something so many people are so afraid I might start doing must be terribly fun and awfully empowering.

On nonrestricted guns, yes. Either way, government don't know who has what unrestricted guns anyway, so who is to stop anyone from doing so?


When transferring a non-restricted firearm, the transferor (a seller or giver) may contact the CFP and request confirmation of whether the transferee (a buyer or recipient), at the time of transfer, holds a licence authorizing them to acquire and possess that kind of firearm.


RCMP Source

In order to get my Possession and Acquisition Licence, all I had to do was go and tell a dude I had a license in NY, and forgot it in the move. He issued one to me with no further questions.

Yeah I have a few friends who into martial arts, and they've kinda been showing me how to use one, but it's hard to learn and they say I lack focus, which is true. I'm a bit ADD.

I put a south Korean patratrooper down rather quickly when he kicked me in the face with a round house kick ,I dropped him with a forward punch( YAY Karate works!) BECAUSE we as Americans eat meat and have become larger.
So your theory might fit with dedicated athletes but not so much in the real world.
SIZE does matter,after all.

Looks like "Push of Pike" or artillery practice.

I cant speak for anyone else, but for me the answer is quite simple. Bad guys have guns, and all the gun legislation that is proposed over and over again that will supposedly solve the gun violence problem does nothing to address the issue. Gun laws take guns away from law abiding citizens, not criminals. Criminals break the law. That's why we call them criminals. If they obeyed laws there wouldn't be a problem. But they don't. When someone wants to pass a law that will take guns away from criminals I will be there to support it. But when all they do is pass one law after another trying to take my gun away and tell me its all about the criminals I call bs.

There is a you tube video like that. One shot to the head stops a lot of gymnastics.

The teacher probably doesn't show his students the sure thing that works on everybody, because the teacher might need to use it or the teacher might be responsible for the student.

I think the round house kick is a lot about exercise and less about practical damage. However, the energy used to do the roundhouse move is very high at the beginning of the move, and a good martial artist would adapt that energy to what works best, in my philosophical opinion.

gun violence has nothing to do with people being able to own guns. its due to cultural/ mental issues taught through media and society. whens the last time you watched a t.v show or movie where a gun wasnt mentioned or shown?

I was surprised that was his first choice.
A good side kick or a shot to the nuts maybe,but the FACE?
He unfortunately jumped me when I'm drunk or Nominally I would have blocked it and talked him down.
I felt no pain or restraint,so he ended up with a broken face.
Sloppy on MY part THAT talent isn't something to use accept for warfare but ...drunk.
I can't even GET that drunk any more I FALL ASLEEP ,now.
