    Soldiers are a different thing. Their trade is war, so obviously they need to be well versed in all its aspects. Traditionally, martial arts have been used mainly for one purpose: discipline, not combat. Buy a Glock for ~450 bucks or less used and sign up for a shooting proficiency class. The price will probably end up being the same as learning a martial art. Even in ancient times, warfare came down to discipline and therefore staying in formation. I'm pretty sure the Roman legions faced adversaries who were individually much better versed in combat, but beat them all because they worked as a group.

    Hell, an easily affordable defense is to buy a hardened leather welder's glove and a machete or a kukri.

    My entire point is that you don't need to know Asian martial arts to be a great fighter. There are plenty of western fighting styles where competed against Asian martial arts have won in competition.

    I don't find the idea of europids fighting like Asians to be appealing. Are we to fight like Asians and worship their fighting styles all of a sudden?

    Europoids fighting like Asians? Do you not realize that the majority of martial arts have the same basic fundamentals? I've trained in scholastic Wrestling which has its roots in the Western Wrestling styles and currently train in Jiu-Jitsu and I can tell you the two are nearly the same, the only real noticeable differences are in the names. A submission hold is still a submission hold no matter how it is said.

    Now, why do I now do Jiu-Jitsu as opposed to Western Wrestling? Because I graduated from high school and moved to a different area, here we have Jiu-Jitsu instructors readily available, and as stated above there's little difference in the fundamentals of the two arts (there is one difference I did not mention before, in Jiu-Jitsu you are trained to work while on your back, in my wrestling training we had no defense on the back as it's considered a "pin" if your back touches the ground in any way).

    And for striking arts, I will admit that I would prefer American Boxing over Shotokan, but I'm not much too much of a fan of striking arts to begin with and my Jiu-Jitsu instructor offers Shotokan as well so it's much more readily available and is basically offered for free as my college pays for all of my dues for Jiu-Jitsu and Shotokan, I have no such opportunity for Boxing.

    I do Shotokan mostly for additional exercise and not for my main combative style anymore, Jiu-Jitsu and wrestling is what I'd rely on first and foremost (outside of my assortment of weapons) after finding that my body is much more suited for grappling and submitting than duking it out.

    Its funny this Asain art vs Euro etc as i had said before the body is only capable of so much and within that is every "art" or "style" devised and who is to say what is what i can bet that some Viking would have done a shoulder throw at some point.....does that mean he learnt for a Jap

    Bottom line as long as you learn something that you "feel" you can defend your self with all good


    oh and not everyone on here has easy access to firearms.......mine have to be locked in a safe buy law ammo locked separate
    Tasmanian twice the heads!!.......twice the intelligence!?

    Yes indeed. And when you are likely to need to use some violence in self defence, you might not have that second or two that it would take you to deploy your weapon. Martial arts give you the ability to respond to and handle the threat while transitioning to an armed response.

    You can't walk around town with a round shield or a long sword or a fencing sabre, as cool as that would be, it just doesn't happen, legally in the U.S. you can't carry a blade bigger than the palm of a hand. :p So what you want simply is not practical.

    Labeling folks like myself as Asiaphiles is a weak fallacy on your part and offers no evidence to a debate, it is a text book strawman as you are misrepresenting my position regarding Asian martial arts. You accuse me of practicing them due to an Asian fetish, which is complete bullshit as I had said time and time again that I practice that which is first off available, and second comfortable, and third something that I can use within the laws of the United States.

Or at least learn how to fight with smaller blades that can be concealed and thus hidden from the eyes of the law? There are modern Western knife fighting variants that are much more practical to Fencing.
