2023.05.29 04:43 MorallessVegito Fighting with younger brother

I just fought my little brother. Knocked him down 13 times or more. In really sweaty mecause I had the fan off in the room. He was holding back though I've seen him hit harder and faster when he's actually mad. Bro was literally saying "I am a super saiyan" and still got knocked over by me (I was extremely tired and my movements were slow. He also could've easily knocked me over) I told him if he knocked me down once he wins. He didn't knock me down at all. I was purposely making it easier for him too...also my other little brother is gonna learn martial arts...

2023.05.29 04:29 TreeTurtle_852 "Did you know ancient sumo had ki-" Yes, yes I know [Low Effort Sunday]

Ok so this will be very short and rsmbly but if you've ever heard the term "martial arts manga" then you're probably in one of three camps.
You're either thinking about big buff men hitting pressure points or shooting ki blasts and in the camp of Dragon Ball, First of the North Star and Jojos Bizarre adventure
Something more grounded and niche like Holyland, Bataque, and All Rounder Meguru
You're homosexual.
I mean, if you like option one you probably are but with this third option you're just either super open about it or so deep in the closet you're paying rent in Narnia.
This is the camp of Baki and Kengan Ashura and while not technically a martial arts manga, for the purposes of this rant Record of Ragnarok will be here.
This trio is what I'm talking about as it spawned a trope of minor annoyance which sort of ranges from Kengan being fine/actually rather good with it to Baki having it be mostly fine to Record od Ragnarok which shits the bed.
By this I mean, "Ancient sumo". If you're in the third camp then you know of ancient sumo. Nowadays sumo is known for big fat men charging at one another and trying to throw them out a ring. There's no kicks, punches, mostly just palm strikes and you've probably been made aware of this through stuff like Street Fighter, Tekken or maybe even Kumite.
Ancient sumo on the other hand allowed all kinds of shit as it was a no-holds barred deathmatch. It's even said that the first ever sumo match ended with a kick.
The result of sumo perceived limits and ancient sumo relative lack of them has sort of spawned this idea of mockery. Sumo is sometimes the first on the job when it comes to martial arts and sumo fighters are often seen as fools or have their MA be shown as ineffective.
And adding onto another layer that sumo fights don't last all that long and grapples/throws aren't always super appealing to draw, it seems that this trio have gravitated to this "ancient sumo" almost as a way of subverting sumo perceived weaknesses and going, "Hey no Ancient sumo let ya kick! Did ya know that?"
With Kengan Ashura, Kiozan Takeru represents ancient sumo in a very interesting way. Kiozan believes Competitive sumo is "incomplete" and stupid and as a result goes back to ancient sumo style of using more moves including kicks which are strong enough to make the most durable fighters black out.
However, he's taken apart by his opponent Sekibyashi Jun as the fight goes on and he slowly loses stamina. Instead of this fight being used to make a mockery of Sumo, it's moreso against people who mock sumo/bash it for its perceived weaknesses without having faith in the art itself. As Sekibyashi points out, Kiozan's version of "true" sumo is basically just some dollar-store MMA and he's not actually built to handle it. And what's Kiozan gonna do. Lose weight?
I like this fight as an example because it's not only one of my favorite fights, but also because it unironically goes into my next point about Raiden Tameemon from Record of Ragnarok.
Now I know I skipped over Baki and that's because I have the least experience with it and imo it doesn't flow as well with my points as to me it's just another example of "did you know ancient sumo allows kicks?".
Now I won't pretend to be an arbiter of "true sumo" or not and I am not a martial arts master. Most of my sumo knowledge comes from online, some interviews and blogs here or there, looking at sumo history/the invention of it Yada Yada, but regardless I want to give some backdrop on Record of Ragnarok or RoR for a moment.
Basically Record of Ragnarok is a 13v13 tournament where every round one human from history and one God from mythology step forward to fight one another.
In round 5, Raiden Tameemon fought Shiva the Destroyer. Why does this matter? Well, Raiden Tameemon is known for being a famous Sumo Wrestler, considered to be among the best. The funny thing is that for all its worth, Raiden in RoR kinda doesn't come across as a sumo Wrestler.
Now I've talked previously about ancient sumo and its supposed subversion of sumo as its viewed in pop culture, but it kind of gets to the point where instead of subverting sumo to showcase its strength, it ends up mutating into something unlike sumo. Ignoring how around Raiden's time, sumo was getting more structured so the more wild style of ancient sumo seems a bit weird, Raiden honestly seems more like a fucking pro wrestler.
Body type wise he's giant with twelve pack abs broad shoulders and no hints of body fat (ik sumo wrestlers are muscular like their bodies are insane but the point is that his body type is more generic buff dude) and his first move is... a drop kick. Ok sure thats fine but, Raiden never charges, he only hrabs Shiva once for a headbutt, he only does one or two palm strikes. One of his named attacks is a lariat
For all intents and purposes, Raiden feels more like a pro wrestler. Now I might be getting it wrong and hey, maybe this is exactly how 18th-19th century sumo fought and im fucking stupid, but I just find it funny how with the whole, "Hey you know ancient sumo had kicks?" Trope I just named, it escalates to the point where sumo strength is emphasized... with a style that barely resembles sumo. It feels less like Raiden is a sumo wrestler from a different time period and more like he's a pro wrestler who occasionally throws out a palm strike.
It's like if in response to the trope of, "Don't bring a knife to a gunfight", all of your characters who you claim to be super skilled knife fighters just shot their opponents. Imagine if Sasaki Kojiro pulled up in Record of ragnarok, dropped his swords and blasted his foe with a shotgun?
Idk I might be entirely wrong and the comments will tear me a new one.
I just found this dichotomy between Kengan Ashura and Record od Ragnarok interesting and wanted to rant about it

2023.05.29 04:25 NeptuneAgency From Rock 'n' Roll to AI: Exploring Seven Decades of Unprecedented Transformation

Growing up from the 1950s to now provides a remarkable lens on a period of intense, rapid change and development in human history.
  1. Technological Advancement: The past 70 or so years have been characterized by unprecedented technological progress. This period saw the transition from analog to digital technology, the development and spread of personal computers and the internet, the birth of the smartphone, and the rise of artificial intelligence and robotics. These technological advancements have revolutionized every aspect of human life, from communication and commerce to healthcare and entertainment.
  2. Globalization: Since the 1950s, the world has become increasingly interconnected. Global trade has grown exponentially, international travel has become commonplace, and the internet has created a global community where information and ideas are shared instantaneously. This period has also seen the growth of multinational corporations and the emergence of a global economy.
  3. Social Change: Significant social movements occurred during this time, pushing for civil rights, gender equality, LGBTQ+ rights, environmental sustainability, and more. These movements have resulted in transformative societal changes, with increasing recognition and protection of human rights and a growing awareness of our impact on the environment.
  4. Scientific Discoveries: The period from the 1950s to now witnessed several significant scientific breakthroughs. The launch of the first satellite, Sputnik, in 1957 marked the beginning of the space age. The understanding of our own biology has been transformed by the discovery of the structure of DNA in 1953 and the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003. Climate science has also advanced significantly, leading to a more profound understanding of human-induced climate change.
  5. Cultural Shifts: From the rock 'n' roll era of the '50s to the digital age of today, cultural norms and expressions have seen significant shifts. Music, art, literature, and film have all been revolutionized and democratized, with new forms and genres emerging and evolving. These shifts have often reflected or influenced wider societal changes.
  6. Political Events and Changes: This period also includes the Cold War and its end, the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall, the shift towards democracy in many parts of the world, the formation of the European Union, and significant geopolitical shifts in power and alliances.
Indeed, there have been many transformative periods throughout human history. While it's difficult to find a direct comparison to the breadth and pace of change from the 1950s to now, several eras stand out for their own distinct transformations:
  1. Renaissance Period (14th-17th century): This period, especially in Europe, was a time of incredible advancements in art, literature, science, and thought. It marked the transition from the Middle Ages to Modernity, and it's often associated with a revival of classical learning and wisdom, a broadening of the known world through exploration, and the development of new technologies like the printing press.
  2. Industrial Revolution (18th-19th century): This era saw a fundamental transformation from agrarian economies to industrial ones, primarily in Britain and then spreading to the rest of Europe and North America. Innovations such as the steam engine, the cotton gin, and the development of railways profoundly changed societies, leading to urbanization, increased trade, and significant shifts in living standards.
  3. Age of Enlightenment (17th-18th century): This period was marked by a revolution in human thought. It promoted reason, analysis, and individualism over traditional doctrine. The Enlightenment influenced the American and French Revolutions and laid the groundwork for many of the fundamental principles of modern Western societies, including the separation of powers and the inherent rights of individuals.
  4. Hellenistic Period (323 BC–31 BC): Following the death of Alexander the Great, this period saw the spread of Greek culture across the Mediterranean and Middle East. It was a time of significant advancement in the arts, exploration, literature, theatre, architecture, music, mathematics, philosophy, and science.
While each of these periods brought significant change in specific spheres of human activity, arguably none match the 1950s-present in terms of the sheer breadth and pace of transformation across virtually all aspects of human life. The advancements in technology, communication, and globalization have made the most recent period in human history uniquely transformative.

2023.05.29 04:08 Zen-Paladin How does one stop feeling hopeless due to being dealt a bad hand?

22M here, will be 23 in a few weeks. I grew up with autism, recently got an ADHD diagnosis that explains many things looking back. Throughout my formative years I struggled socially/academically and these things persisted into adulthood. I am nearly 23 and starting college over from scratch, and have never had a girlfriend and still am not in a great place financially/mentally for it anyway. Still living with my mom, but want to apply to be a police officer in 1.5-2 years with an associates degree in business (will get a bachelor's in the long run) and some job stability.
I wasn't really bullied, but the constant loneliness and embarassment for my cringiest moments still eats at me and can ruin my mood for the day. Plus the ADHD has made adulting hard: lost a couple jobs, mismanaging money, and I am even years behind on hobbies I genuinely like. With family, my family has always been pretty dysfunctional. Suicidal sister with violent outbursts and has been hospitalized several times. Police were also here various times, once 4 times within 2 months. My dad was abusive at times, loving at others with apologies/love bombing thrown in. He died from COVID 2 years ago, and not being on the best terms at the time it still gets to me, among other family BS. My mom is very stressed/burnout from it all and actually denied getting me ADHD treatment when I was initially diagnosed as a kid and is still against it(she can't do anything of course)
All this sucks. That said I know my only alternative is to improve and try to make the most out of it. I doubt myself at times but know I am not incapable of achieving these things. My autism is mild and doesn't impact me outside of being socially inexperienced(I talk to people ok) and I take meds for my ADHD which is definitely helping. I started therapy recently as well and am starting to go for a full glow up(fitness, grooming, etc). For a GF, I mainly want someone who has a good personality, us at least ok with my nerdy interests and is conventionally attractive(by no means needs to be a supermodel in looks)
I have overcome a lot of the comparison to others/keeping up with Joneses mindset I used to have but still lament being behind on my goals I genuinely want to achieve. I hope that within three years I would have my own place, a girlfriend or at least have started dating, and a bit of a social life(not a partier though). I like martial arts(started Kajukenbo and BJJ again) and might do a few tournaments if I stick with it. I also signed up for some Meetup groups(nerd stuff) and a friend of mine wants to do some hiking. I will be applying for another EMT job(weren't hiring for flexible schedules before) and with my ADHD under control doing better may help my confidence.
All that said I still have intrusive thoughts about my failures and question if things can get better. How can I change that?

2023.05.29 03:41 Hot_Basis5967 Advice on judo dummy?

So I don't currently do Judo, I do a similar martial art heavy on throws, but I know of a good Judo/BJJ school near me and am hoping to start when I have some more financial freedom. In the meantime I am trying to get a dummy to maybe practice some throws from youtube and some from my own art, but the thing is I don't really know where to get 50 Ibs of fabric to fill it. I was wondering if it would be possible to use sand instead of fabric, but I feel like that would be too dense. Any advice?

2023.05.29 03:35 davidson-0 ip man 4 review in one shot

ip man 4 review in one shot
Ip Man 4: The Finale is a fitting end to the popular martial arts film series starring Donnie Yen as the legendary Wing Chun master. While the plot may not be as cohesive or compelling as the earlier installments, the movie still delivers plenty of thrilling fight scenes and emotional moments that will satisfy fans of the genre and the franchise.
The biggest theme of Ip Man 4 is the struggle of Chinese immigrants and their descendants to adapt and find acceptance in America during the 1960s, especially in the face of racism and stereotyping. This idea is reflected in various subplots, from Ip Man's relationship with his son who studies in a U.S. school, to the conflicts between the Chinese martial artists and the Western boxing enthusiasts, to the antagonism between Ip Man and a pompous American army officer who undermines Chinese culture.
These topics add depth and resonance to the movie, but they don't always get enough time to develop or converge smoothly, leaving some of the supporting characters or themes underdeveloped. Nonetheless, the action scenes are where Ip Man 4 truly shines, showcasing the Wing Chun style's speed, precision, and adaptability against various other fighting methods. The choreography, cinematography, and sound effects are all top-notch, making every punch, kick, and weapon strike look and sound impactful.
Donnie Yen once again commands the spotlight with his charismatic and dignified portrayal of Ip Man, who remains a role model of honor, compassion, and wisdom despite facing personal and social challenges. The other cast members, including Vanness Wu, Scott Adkins, Chris Collins, and Danny Chan, also deliver solid performances, even if they don't get enough character arcs or motivations.
Overall, Ip Man 4: The Finale may not be as seminal or inventive as the first Ip Man, but it's still a well-crafted and satisfying conclusion to the series, offering a mix of martial arts spectacle, historical insight, and inspirational value. If you're a fan of Asian action movies or Ip Man himself, this movie is worth watching.

2023.05.29 03:25 HeatPacker1222 08 TL. A few ?? about my brakes. I'm dumb, I thought the pads were "expensive" and I drove too long. The RR pads fell off, the front, done, but "there", can I get the rotors "turned," still? Does it depend on damage done? Are the calipers ok? How do I get this AWFUL RUST off my wheel, please HELP!?

I kept driving my car long after the dreaded screeching started, bc I had it in my head that it will be expensive and I'm newly single, struggling with money. The inevitable happened, the brakes in rear stopped working, eventually metal on metal and the pads fell off. The front is barely working, it's screeching, and I have about a Qtr inch of brake pedal before I can't press them down at all. Can I get away with turning the rotors, at least on the rear? A kinda shady shop local to me said they would have done the pads for $50, but will do pads, rotors, and I'm pretty sure he said calipers, for $305. Should I do the $305 job, or shop around, find someone to salvage the rotors. The calipers still work.
Pictured is my horrendous brake dust and rust caked on my wheel. Also the Qtr panel and Right rear of bumper is getting caked and I'm afraid it'll spread? It hurts my soul thinking I probably ruined my wheel for $50. I'm in no physical condition to get down on the ground and change them myself, I need two knee replacements and had 2 shoulder surgeries in the last year, thanks To a lifetime of martial arts and Jiujitsu training.

2023.05.29 03:22 Doodofhype Stumped on a ruling and need fellow dm advice

(For our game we try to stick to the rules as close as we can)
I have a monk player who wants to fight with large punchy gauntlets. Those don’t exist so we figured clubs would be the best fit, being monk weapons for martial arts and stuff. However now after some levels I don’t know what to rule going forward. Flurry of Blows and Ki-Empowered strikes only mention unarmed strikes and not monk weapons…but they ARE punching and stuff. Their gauntlets (clubs) are on their knuckles and they swing and fight like a boxemartial artist.
I’m curious to know what other dms would rule for this. Would attacks with these improvised/reskinned brass knuckle brawler weapons be considered unarmed strikes?

I am a 28F based in a European country, also hard of hearing.
I started a Bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts at one of two top universities in my country and completed 2 years of it, but struggled with completing the 3rd year due to 14h workdays (mind you, the work was very interesting, it involved doing stuff for top global companies, and I felt I was making an impact, as opposed to sitting in a college classroom).
After dropping out of this degree, I never quite got back to the university in any larger capacity, although I had several futile attempts. Now I'm feeling more than ready to go back to my academic adventure, and as I'm researching and considering various options, I'd be more than grateful for your valuable input.

2023.05.29 03:07 FlyingFish28 Why I made this meme that changed the community?

Why I made this meme that changed the community?
Everyone here have seen this picture, right?
I bet you guys don't think that Traveler is the only one who can go underwater, or we can only go underwater with a vehicle anymore, right? Hoyoverse still respond to the community though, namely the Chinese one. The Chinese guys are so stubborn so the only way to motivate them is by pictures.
And obviously, it had a big hit in every country. The Chinese are sarcastic that it's Photoshop, the Japanese are really exited, the English speakers in Asia are laughing about the shark or having thallasphobia flashbacks, the Russians are talking about mints being underwater, and the south-east Asia is…
After the flood of this meme and the subnautica ones, the entire community is way less sarcastic about underwater mechanisms in Genshin and began to accept the coming of the new mechanics.
Back when I shared the underwater combat mechanism article in Reddit before the 3.7 livestream teaser 90% of the comments are talking that it's going to be vehicle-only, which I find understandable but absurd. Do you still think that underwater is for traveler-only now?
The motive behind this meme, or fan-made concept art of underwater combat by me, isn't that simple. I have to have some faith in Genshin implementing underwater combat with normal functioning characters first. But why I didn't deny the possibility of Genshin getting full-on underwater combat with alternate animations and proper physics in the first place, even before Sorush comes and being denied by Beisht 1 year ago?
So why did I assume that there's a 50/50 chance that this picture would become true despite all of this?
First of all, player trust. If Hoyo teased something 2 patches ahead of the actual region, there's a high possibility that this region is going to be big with veriaty of sceneries in the same category, which I assume that the region is going to be bigger than 1 square kilometers.
Second, traveler-only zones and traveler-only animations tend to be small and rare. Traveler-only zones which are only in quests, including Irminsl and a few escape/chases, "dates" with other characters (including Ayaka one). The areas which are only accessible by traveler during quest inside main Teyvat is always accessible by anyone anytime else. There's a traveler-only animation in the chase-and-escape quests, and there's a fishing animation that's unique to traveler, which are minor features in the game.
Third, having a big region being only accessible to the traveler violates the rule of being a gacha game. What's the main gameplay of Genshin? Wondering around, do quest, do events, fight mobs, sometimes do spiral abyss, with whatever team you feel comfortable to play, usually obtained from Gacha. Wether if it's the cabbage with the killer camera, or the Inazuman Samurai that makes everything into monsters, or that unlucky mondstadt boy, or the Liyue "bookworm" who is interested in martial arts, or that random cook, or charger that looks like a strict Asian mom, the point of Genshin gameplay is to team up your gacha loots, or characters, in a way and play them in a way that you feels comfortable, with at least one or two of the insane supports above. And then, there's a big major region which you can only use the traveler and go into Subnautica mode without being able to switch to and use your favorite support or DPS. The MC-only feature is supposed to be small and in Gacha games, but the size of something changes the properties of something.
Fourth, the existence of unnecessary but effort-consuming features in Honkai Impact 3rd. The one in Honkai Impact is very clear: Most popular units have multiple event detailed and beautiful outfits, including, playable Herrschers and flamechasers and many other popular units. All these outfits have entirely different and beautiful SFX than the original though they have a similar impression, though there's no obligation of the colors of the SFX in relation to the damage type because there's no elemental reactions like Genshin which you need to indicated the elemental type of the character swiftly through their SFX color, besides the fact that the water element does not exist in Honkai Impact, many summer outfits the SFX of the herrschers and the flamechasers are water-themed. It sounds quite effort taking… right? To make the entire underwater kit for Genshin's 70 existing characters would take slightly more effort than this, so if they wasted their strength on Honkai Impact, why don't make it worth more than just aesthetics on Genshin?
And fifth, powercreep. Though it may sounds weird, but without any more major change to the combat system like Dendro, the only way to update the meta is forward powercreep. And what does powercreep means? If someone feels like chasing the meta is hard and necessary, they would leave the game. This kinda happened to Honkai Impact 3rd and also Tower of Fantasy and countless other gacha games, though Honkai Impact 3rd is much more F2P friendly on meta. Underwater combat is a high-effort and high-risk but great method to give a big change to gameplay besides Dendro.
Some people may argue that they would only do the underwater combat for the new Fontaine units, while this takes way less effort than doing that for the existing 70 characters, it's pretty much equivalent severe powercreep if the underwater mobs comes into spiral abyss, because the point of genshin is to PLAY THE GAME WITH WHATEVER DPS YOU LIKE. And DPS could get a bit outdated, but supports never get replaced and with good supports anyone is playable. Doing underwater mechanics only for traveler and new characters violates the rule of Genshin's limited and healthy powercreep.
Sixth, Hoyoverse CAN animate underwater mechanics. While that may not be true back in the days when they state that there isn't going to be underwater stuff in Genshin besides mocking the players on Enkanomia and Beisht, similar animations have be seen in Nahida and Kokomi's demo, Kiana Herrscher of Finalty's summer outfit effects, Elysia Herrscher of Human's kit ( I am pretty obsessed with her burst mode outfit + animations).
And then, there's Honkai Star Rail as a backup if Genshin's underwater mechanics screwed up and turning Genshin into a niche game like Honkai Impact third. Honkai Star Rail has so many good side-features that it can counter with its turn-based feature and keep a big fanbase that are willing to pay. And people who get annoyed on Genshin would naturally move towards Star Rail.
And last, the developers are a bunch of YOUNG POEPLE that are willing to take some risk and get bored. Developers are people that are partially immature, aka "not boring", and would get bored and want to do something new that even the CEO have objected previously. And of course there would be people among the developers that are obsessed with the ocean and wanted to do something SERIOUSLY on it. And the CEO may have changed his mind want to do something seriously about underwater stuff too, ever since Tower of Fantasy did something on it.

That's pretty much my supporting arguments on having underwater combat in Genshin. And as you guys have suggested, there's quite a lot of drawbacks to underwater mechanics:
  1. Controls difficulty spike.The current Genshin controls are designed to mainly move on flat ground with 1 jump button and uses gravity to automatically do the job of pulling the player downwards. Inside water, you have to control both going up and going down on your own. While that may not feel too troublesome with just Sorush with only 1 attack button, it can get really troublesome when you add 2 or 3 more skill buttons as they're normally there on the characters, with probably a displaced sprint button which would take quite a while to get used to. And Sorush controls aren't that smooth, while smoother and more sophisticated controls would be troublesome to get used to and aren't popular(like the flight sim ones), learned from the "comment section catastrophe" of writing this on Reddit:
  2. Developers labor cost.Designing the underwater system itself, even just a mere text sketch of the rework of elemental reactions, would be quite a big work, as I felt when I wrote the basic underwater combat mechanics back before Sorush. And making the whole thing would take even more effort, including building a new physics engine for animating entirely underwater character movesets, though the base movement one may be easy with the animating physics engine, it's much harder to do that with each of the character unique animations which may only look good and natural underwater when having a really big rework, and worse, it's different from aerial combat too. And how many characters are there? 70! That would be quite a huge work.
  3. Risk management.Having such a big change on the entire gameplay with this much investment has a huge risk of losing a lot of money and players, namely whales and dolphins, and compared to normal powercreep, this mechanism has a much higher failure rate that would kill Genshin.
  4. Thalassphobia & other games being bad at this.Many players are afraid of the mechanism because other games which do not takes place entirely underwater's underwater mechanisms are minor or not good. There's a lot of PTSD here about other games and can be a major roadblock of Hoyo trying to make those mechanisms even if they want to.
Anyways, thanks to the nature of Reddit and Facebook, people's posts can blow up easily even they're not famous themselves like me. And I had a better feeling that this could blow up and even change the entire community's opinion about underwater mechanisms in Genshin. But thanks for the Subnautica meme makers who paved the way for this meme to spread too.
Well, there's another deepfake underwater gameplay fan art though.
So, what's your opinion about underwater mechanisms right now compared to your opinion before the 3.7 livestream, Subnautica memes and these two deepfakes? Please comment below!

2023.05.29 02:25 TreeFiddy_1 For those who carry a pocket/neck/belt knife for everyday utility, what do you choose? And do you believe your weapon of choice is responsible for this subsequent one?

Curious if pistol gripped Foil fencers opt for pistol grip knives (those like the police utilize: Ka-Bar TDI a prime example, Spyderco Swick, Fred Perrin's Le Griffe, Sog's Snarl... I'm speaking gibberish right?)
Each weapon has a different disposition but more importantly grip, while you can pull it off with an Epee a pistol grip is a no go for Saberist, as in it would go against their martial arts discipline. I see a double edged blade a serious considerable considerations, a blade with a trailing point seems preferable. Slash is half your thing?
The game is a martial arts education which took me awhile to grasp. Simple carrying a legal non-offensive blade seemingly would take your martial art skill from. near zero to guitar hero.
Odd question Ik. I'll condense it even further:
TLDR; those of you who carry a knife daily/weekly, what is in your pocket? Or ya just happy to see me.I imagine a Cold Steel XL Espada being lovely for a Saber boy or gal. Calling all mall ninjas to tell me of your mini katanas and throwing knives cause this sport is based off US History... elections were decided by duels and Andrew Jackson was proof. A;; before it got lame and guns came around and JFK (MLK... a lot of 3 letters/ initials dudes) got capped cowardly by the CIA or not who knows. Same goes for MLK
