nah, just kidding.. im just wondering if anyone stdies whats known as 'military arts or sports' these are largely lumped with combt sports like fencing, military medieval reenacting (ifor the purpose of this thread it conts) karate/ Tae kwan do
in thisassessment i also include archery... not gunnery,im really not interested in yourgun shooting skills.
asfor me, officially im a student of okinawan karate, a slight custom vrsion devised by my sensei that heavily emphasises stret fighting and practical defense, he also has, technically seperate but conducted in the sam building, the crriculum ofkyukyan kobudo, or weapons,
such as the Bo staff, sai nunchuku and kama
i have an interest in most sword arts and have a steadily growing collection of cheapish blunt swords such as a wushu style dao and a tai-chi style jian straight sword as well as a .. decent quality 'wallhanger' katana set.
i also aspire to learn kendo and iaijutsu, and maybe after ive studied abit more karate i may jointly take up wing chun kung fu
