    I have been practicing this for six years now. Whether it was made up or its roots are actually what they claim it works. It more than a martial art, its a whole philosophy. Its not about just using a staff, its learning to see lines in a situation and exploiting them.

    Why don't you simply go one better and learn to handle and shoot a handgun?

    There is no martial art ever conceived or will be that can stop a well-placed high velocity round - unless of course you are talking about the martial skills as shown in the film "The Matrix."

    I heard that there was some guy that was trying to develop this into a bonafide martial art, but unfortunately he didn't quite evade the bullet fired at him fast enough and it lodged deep into his skull, thus ending his developing this any further. Since that time, no other person has come forward to take up where he left off.

    So much for martial arts when it comes to tried and true latter day technology and bullet design.

    Looks great for demonstrations and Festivals.

    Don't think it will do you much good against a Helicopter Gunship though.

    The only "Martial Art" that is really important is the one that makes the most Globalist Dead.

    The use of weapons no longer used only serves as a basis to teach students the lines, web and how they change. It also has to do with the fact that a gun will not always be available and you have to learn to use what you have to the best that you can. There is knife fighting and bare handed techniques, but the latter is mainly on using your body as you would any other weapon. You are always going to find someone bigger faster stronger and more skilled than you, seeing the lines/advantages/disadvantages of the situation is just another facet on the crystal

    I don't know about Stav, but I agree with those who say you should learn how to use your own hands

    So it does not always involve a staff? I guess it is a good thing then, if it develops the mind, kind of like chess for fight scenarios.

    Develop a strong body, and learn how to use it! The best, most efficient weapon is your body. You could have the best gun, or knife in the world, but it won't do you no good if your arms aren't strong enough to use it efficiently.

    no the way some teach is first with the staff and two person drills to teach the correct angles and the changing of them as a person moves. Then the length of the weapon shortens and changes, staff/spear, axe, short sword/knife, each weapon bieng used in a different way and the length shorteneing to learn the lines as they shorten. For example the axe wouldnt be use the same as a spear or short sword, these "strikes or moves" teach the direction of attack and how to move. Then when the web/lines are more clearly understood then one is able to use the body only better. Techniques are good to teach but in the end the real goal is to see the lines and the best way to use them.

    National Socialism is the only salvation for Germanics and Europids everywhere. Capitalism, libertarianism, and communism is the enemy.

    National socialized collectivism must prevail over radical individualism.

    Living in Texas, you should be aware that there are concealed carry permits available Helamann, which means that having a handgun accessible all the time is a reality.

    Most all my friends carry (and are legally permitted to do so), and they always have a gun handy in case the worse scenario presents itself. In fact, a good friend in Fort Worth just stopped a guy from trying to steal his truck - held him at gunpoint until the police arrived to arrest him.

    Most all violent criminals carry weapons of some sort - knives, guns, etc., so why shouldn't law abiding citizens do likewise?

    Our ancient Germanic ancestors were almost always armed with knife, sword or axe because the "negative elements of society" were likewise armed. Just makes complete sense to me to be equally so.
