Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum. Quid enim est aetas hominis, nisi ea memoria rerum veterum cum superiorum aetate contexitur? -- Cicero, Marcus Tullius (106-43BC)

comment Slashing vs thrusting (bladed weapon vs pointed weapon)
@Fildor: Do you have a reference for that? As far as I know, pila were used in the early Roman Republic well before they had any contact with the Germaic tribes. Now, pila were indeed partly designed to penetrate shields but those were more the standard hoplite ones that were in wide use all over the Mediterranean at the time.

+1 if only for mentioning the companion ball (Portal reference) as it's an awesome way to learn forward rolls.

Bullets are thrusting weapons and are far more powerful than a vast majority of slashing weapons...

I am a little wary of your use of "combat". In Aikido, we have plenty of such drills but they are highly structured as they are learning tools and not combat training.
