No I'm sorry, don't cry. No, please don't. No.... Okay..okay...okay it was funny. Very funny. It was hilarious. I wanted to reply yesterday, but I was to busy laughing. Did I mention it was funny?

Awww, now that's more like it!
I knew I could count on you, 1217, just let me wipe away my tears here....




On-topic, any of you all ever do any grappling? I've found it pretty useful (had to use it to restrain a patient in the ER one time who'd shot a little too much funny juice into his bloodstream , good times, son of a gun wanted to sue me and the hospital when he sobered up, too ).

Being in S.B and all - this wasn't at The Cottage, was it? I got to see some funny stuff doing my walk through there. A lawyer attached to every patient.


Muay Thai is almost certainly one of the best striking arts available, using SENSIBLE strikes using hands, elbows, knees, head, shins and feet. This will allow for fighting at all ranges from kicking to the clinch.

For knife fighting Arnis would be among one of the best arts, although there are others.

BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Juitsu) is a very good form of grappling or gound fighting. However, IMO it relies on chokes and submission moves that take too long to disable your adversary.

I'd go on, but I'm putting myself to sleep.

No Sir, I doubt Cottage would hire me after some of the reasons I've been in there, this was back home in Hickville.
I've always liked Cop Ju Jitsu, you know with the night stick and all, like on COPS or "The World's Craziest Psychedelic Ninja Police Chases."

K'rav Magá is very good for self defense at a basic, tough level. The mil version is alot more offensive than defensive civ version, and much less commercialised. Civ version is shite, IMO.

Favorite martial arts (the only one I know.. ):
Military close/hand-to-hand combat..
The Norwegian version is actually based a bit on K'rav Magá, and some Kick-boxing (and several other martial arts).
We have taken out the most effective (for our purposes) "moves", and combined them into our own unique close combat form.
It's highly effective, and it's quite easy to learn the basic moves.
I am (was) an instructor in this, and have instructed soldiers in it for some years now.
It does include unarmed combat, and combat with knife/bayonet, sticks, rifles/MP5s, field/folding shovels etc...
(basically everything you may cary with you).
There are no "fancy" kicks/moves, since this is designed to be usefull if you are fatigued and in full combat gear.
It's not wise to use it in the average "bar fight" on a saturday night, since it's only designed to kill or cause serious/critical injuries.
That's why we are very carefull what we teach and to whom we teach it.

I would pay to see that.


I don't know any martial arts, but I rather like jiu jutsu, the way it looks anyways. And Samurai style.
