comment Why do we train martial arts?
@DaveLiepmann: I honestly cannot find a way to ask "Why do you train" in a way that would fit SE without being a list of things, too broad, and so personal that no one answer would fit more than a few people unless platitudes are given. If you think you can, go for it!

Losers, maybe. Trolling, most definitively: instead of a goal, I believe they were pointing to the road. Finding a goal is easy but walking the path is hard. Which is more or less what you are saying... Although, I am not sure you answered the question -- whatever the question was.

I voted to close because your question is too broad and invites discussions. The latter is very much not supported by SE sites. This would make for an interesting conversation but this Q&A site is not the place for it.

comment Are there legal ramifications to being a trained martial artist?
Yes, I was referring to the state trouper. It makes more sense if he is part of your anecdote.

+1 for the first paragraph. -1 for anecdotal evidence and hear say.

comment Are there legal ramifications to being a trained martial artist?
I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV. That said, I do not believe that a UN resolution automatically translate into the law of any country whether they signed it or not. A quick and dirty search shows that they are considered "recommendations" by article 10 and 14. Admittedly, that was from wikipedia which, as I said before, is not a reference. Still, it should be east to verify. Apparently Sergei A. Voitovich, International Economic Organizations in the International Legal Process, p. 95. Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 1995. ISBN 0-7923-2766-7 has the meat of the matter.

Wikipedia is not a reference, the article does not reference anything to do with martial arts, and its link to the text is broken. Could you find the exact text of the resolution?

comment What's the difference between Internal and External martial arts?
Any technique that involves abruptly changing the direction of movement such as in full or partial resitence randori. For example, all the hontai no tsukuri leading to atmi waza and in hiji mochi no tsukuri leading to whatever technique you wish to apply.

comment How should I look for an “open” tournament near me?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about local events.
