Getting educated is good advice. That said, your argument kind of circled back around to imply (rightly I think) that any time you attack another person, there could be serious legal consequences and there's no much to do about that, weapons or not. If you're protecting yourself or your family, you just have to do your best and hope for the best. Also, our school does teach practical combat weapon techniques meant for real-world usage. I'd also say that equating the danger of having a gun in the house with that of having a sword, spear, or staff is a bit absurd.

I really appreciate this thoughtful answer and agree entirely that a weapon is no substitute for unarmed training. That said, both of you expressed the benefit of kali sticks being unassuming, but I'm wondering if anyone has considered the value of determent. Pictures of folks protecting their homes and stores with guns is part of what has me thinking about this in the first place. Isn't there value in having something that you can point at someone and say "Don't try it!" and avoiding the fight in the first place?
