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 find out what are the laws on edged weapons in my country?
@MarkC.Wallace: It would be quiet easy to change the question so that it is clearly relevant to MA.se and not localised. Perhaps $admin could edit it?

comment What are the signs *not* to train at a specific school?
@RolandTepp: I have trained with self employed people who, if injured, would have been unable to work. Thus, insurance was essential in case they got injured so they did not becoming homeless. It had nothing to do with being sued. Although, I am not a lawyer nor do I play one on TV and I am aware that suing is a favourite past time in some countries. I guess what the point is about "protecting yourself from medical and legal expenses". AKA self defence.

Watching should never be a problems. However, depending on the dojo/instructor insurance, instructors may have to ask someone who wants to train to get insured (thus pay a small fee) even if they only want to try it for a session or two.
