comment Are there legal ramifications to being a trained martial artist?
Now I want to go down to the local police station, demand they put me on their list of registered deadly martial artists, and look at the confused look on their faces.

comment What would you do to handle a road rage fist fight?
I wouldnt say never kick. Kicks are extremely effective, and important when trying to keep an attacker away from you. Never kick like that, perhaps.

comment Are there good alternatives to wood for weapons?
I'm not sure if Rattan is considered wood or a member of the grass family, like bamboo. But it makes a nice alternative to hardwoods. It makes nice staffs and even walking canes.

What do you consider to be 'wood'? Rattan is very light and very strong, and not very expensive.

So you pick the best from whats available. How isnt that what I said?

comment What martial art should I start with?
Whats available is key. Its not a question of what style to take, its a question of which of the available schools are best. Unless one lives smack in the middle of a major urban area, the practical choices are typically limited.
