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...

comment Combat drill with multiple oponents
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.

comment Difference between Judo, Karate and Martial Arts?
Welcome to the site! You seem to not be aware that martial arts is a catch all term. Did you mean mixed martial arts? Also, what problem are you trying to solve? Just a difference between two arts is solved easily using Wikipedia.

comment It makes sense to develop explosive forward movement?
What kind of "explosive forward movement"? What kind of unarmed attack? What kind of armed attack? ... Your question is really unclear although I think there is a good question in there. Can you clarify what problem you are trying to solve?
