comment Training Body Reading Without Sparring
That's a really excellent approach for learning to read the other person as a matter of personal work. Not quite what I am looking for since I am looking for drills to train others with, but I may adapt it as a way of explaining how to frame it.

We used to use pens (normal ballpoint pens, caps in place). Worked rather well.

In my mind there are still too many questions, independent of the topicality of the theme.

comment Are there legal ramifications to being a trained martial artist?
Yeah, the fact that he had a gun and it was in your home frequently–though not always–makes it a "lethal force warranted" situation under law, which simplifies things significantly for force short of lethal.

comment What martial notation systems exist for describing techniques in writing?
If you do play with it and it works well, let me know how it turns out ^_^ I'd be interested to see.

The basic rule in the US is that "A person may [...] use physical force upon another person when and to the extent he reasonably believes such to be necessary to defend himself or a third person from what he reasonably believes to be the use or imminent use of unlawful physical force by such other person" with a few added caveats and conditions. Very similar.
