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 How do I keep a safe distance from potential threats without escalating the situation?
-1 as this is a terrible answer. It is just a link to some block called Geoff. We have no idea who he is, what he does, or what the video is about. Note that links are subject to rot so are no good without an explanation. So, no it does not help I am afraid. This could be a good answer but it needs expending.

Qi has been scientifically investigated and was found to be little more than belief.

comment Aikido jo-staff origins
@CraigConstantine: That opens a can of worms as to why uke does the things that uke does. With a blade at the end, most moves/counters makes sense. If there is no blade, things become a little more muddied. Of course, we both agree that both Aikido jo and Aikido bokken are tools to learn Aikido first and learn some cool wooden weapons skillz second.

I know that O'Sensei did teach bayonet during the second world war and I was thinking that it would be more likely than a spear (too short!).

comment Martial arts for building self confidence
Welcome to the site. There is a nice question in there. However, there are a few unclear bits: What do you mean by "spiritual peace"? By heavy, do you mean 180 pounds of muscles plus bone or do you mean coach lizard?
