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 Why should I wear my gi with left side over right side?
@slugster: I would class zombie karateka as undead so covered by the exception rule. Ditto for yakuza zombies with guns from the 444th portal aka Forest Of Resurrection.

comment Krav Maga, is it 100% legal for defense?
Just to make things clear: while you can ask legal advise from plebs on the Internet, please check with a criminal lawyer if you want a valid and legal answer.

comment Start attacking instead of blocking while sparring
I have no idea why the downvote. This is a great answer in term of advise, drills, and humour! +1

If this situation is common where you live, consider moving somewhere else?... ^_~

comment Choosing a Target When Cornered by Multiple Attackers
I am unhappy with your statement of attacking first. This might put you on the wrong side of the law. This post might even constitute evidence that you intended to be corned to fight thus diminishing any self defence argument in court. I am not a lawyer nor do I play one on TV so I would strongly advise you seek local legal advise.

comment How effective are foul techniques as a side control escape?
@Trevoke: I was aware of that ^_~. To be honest, this is almost a good answer bare for the legal ignorance. I like the getting away, the not staying to fight, and the note about the dangers of getting bio hazard material into your mouth. However, ignorance of the law is no excuse for any martial artist. Propagating myths about the law is likely to get people in jail.

if you can justify using that level of force it is legal is at best oversimplifying the laws covering self defence and certainly shows no understanding of legal matters. Sorry, my down vote stands.

-1 for lack of understanding of the laws regarding self defence.

comment Is martial arts training 'inadequate' for the real world?
-1 Both answers are the same: myth of MA being sports thus useless, over simplification of violence, and oversimplified sociological arguments. A factual error: Aikido does have sport competition.

comment Measuring the foot when buying Tabi (and giving the size using the japanese convention)
I was unsure and to be honest, I like the question so it should remain open! ^_~

comment Measuring the foot when buying Tabi (and giving the size using the japanese convention)
I am not sure the question should be on topic since it involves shoe size which are not really martial art specific. Maybe Japan language would be a better place to ask? However, the question itself is very well phrased, researched, and interesting to martial artists so I vote we keep it! BTW +1.

@Reno: I think there is a good question there. Besides, it's not like this site is overburdened with questions so the more the merrier.

comment Are there legal ramifications to being a trained martial artist?
-100! The legal consequence of this attitude is that you commit assault and will be prosecuted as such. This is thoughtless, unrealistic, and ignorant advise.
