Only by one whose nature it is to destroy, I am not so inclined.

Tools are my weapons, with my mind I create and nurture.

My first instructor only taught disarming techniques with weapons until the 2nd degree and was down on weapons as statistically speaking (not my argument ;) there is more that a great chance that the weapon can be turned against you.

Its all very interesting though and at the end of the day this school taught that the best fight were the once that ended without fighting ;)

The reality is if you have a weapon that you're not proficient in using then it can be turned against you although it is not a statistical likelihood is certainly more likely. I am sure you nobody can take a knife or sword for me that I do not want them to. Although I am nowhere near as proficient with Firearms as I am with blades I'm also confident my gun could not be taken from me 95 out of 100 times.

Fun fact guns are used in self-defense over half a million times a year which sort of dwarfs the twelve thousand some odd deaths caused by them annually
Not withstanding the 20 foot rule- true that ! Real world v dojo et al -meanings life or death when all else fails and it won't! and you do manage to get near me -- it's kubi kansetsu waza ,Any  Samurai talk is just that in the real world is where it's at. Those guys will try to rip your phukin head off make it fast and skedaddle. Interesting tidbit here was giving a neck massage to a friend she was having a migraine right- as I moved to give her an  adjustment in the cervical area she exclaimed saying she could feel something coming from my Lao point -middle of palm-into her sore area and her aching was  now gone . win Win for me .Thanks men and ladies
Samuri were by nessessity a practical lot. I think it's curious that Hojutsu was practiced since the
1500s but is almost unheard of today. The Samuri were the first to adopt firearms when the tech became
available. People talk about Bruce Lee's skill, but his greatest gift to the martial arts was to
say that 'it's ok to be free, use what works and discard the rest'. Ironic that a man of chinese disscent would have to tell Americans it's ok to be free. He knew he would become a target too.
I understand instructors that say it's more dangerous to be armed. Most 'victims' are on the ground
before they realize an attack and any weapons they possess can be compromised.
Unaware people should not be empowered by weapons. They are followers who are educated by the system to be what they are. They tend to compose the main body of armys that commit attrocities. The 'educated' soldier is a mockery.
Warriors are born not 'made' and most human males are born with a gentle warriors nature... until it becomes corrupted by 'education'.
As an instructor I recognized that instructors who wanted to earn a living or just pay the bills and insurance for a dojo had to entertain the masses to make ends meet. Only one in a hundred students blossomed, the rest came and went but paid the bills.
I never brought money into the mix even if I was doing a public demo or semen-ar.
When my students and I found each other we rarely trained in formal environments. We could be found out on the ice of a frozen lake, or at night in the rain on a natural forest floor.
We visited local dojos to mix with other energies in the arena and pay respects to local teachers but the realm of lawyers, landlords and accountants was not ours.
Our hojutsu training could not be practiced at a formal range, not only was it risky it was probably illegal.

I taught women and children too, mostly in homes and with respect to the ways of hearth keepers.
Sometimes I would accept a meal or handmade gift from a child.
Shield Maidens are myth, no human woman was ever a warrior no matter the lies told by neo history or video games.
They can be ferocious defenders of the hearth if need be though. If women are found in uniform or with badge and gun today and enjoy parity in the field it's only because 'men' have become such useless cucks.

Owning a handgun doesn't make you armed any more than owning a guitar makes you a musician.

I'm surprised you don't recognize the absurdity of that comment.
Maybe you have over-estimated me, will you show me the error?
In a purely pragmatic sense, the firearm beats the unarmed man 97 out of 100 times. just because synthesis is the aspiration and nuance is the key to learning doesnt mean we can disregard basic logic.
Bridging the unarmed community with the gun community has always been tricky. Ive never seen the
difference. Jeff Cooper also said, 'Bushido is fine but it's no match for a 30-06'. Also I've had at lease one martial instructor who was down on guns.
I've been in enough live blade training drills to know that often you are not aware you are bleeding until the dust has settled.
Gunshot wounds can be much the same.
With humans so much of combat is psychological (illogical) and often contra-dicks pragmatism. Even a deer will sometimes run a good distance after being heartshot.
I have one friend as big as me who took a 22short shot from a 2 inch derringer to the trauma plate in a ballistic vest. He fell back because he 'knew' he was shot. Boy was he embarassed later. Certainly a 22 can kill...eventually, but it has little knockdown power.
I think you would agree that prevailing in self-defense is not about 'beating' an assailant as it
is about neutalizing a threat. Otherwise would not be the 'gentle way'. Sometimes people are maimed or die in the proccess but it is not the intention.
I taught that one or two center mass gunshots was no guarantee of stopping an assailant.
That a handgun is only a (layer) tool of the warrior. More often than not and it's statisically true (central nervous system hits not withstanding) that handguns frequently fail to put down a determined, drugged or otherwise shapeshifted opponent.
One reason I have kept with the old 1911 chambered for newer 10mm is because it is a useful blodgeon as well as a good flexible shooter.
In close quarters a stout crack across the jaw or on lower skull just behind either ear will put the determined down more reliably than a single gun shot, and there is much less paperwork.
To each his own though.
I also would like to thank you for reminding me of my frequent associations with the absurd.

On a side note, of all the instructors I had, the knife fighters were the most adamant about avoiding
a fight. Apparently 'no one' wins a knife fight, and I can see how that would be.

Anal-yzation vs creation of Tactical and Strategic environments
Summoning Gods and Demons to the present moment.
Time and space travel as a passenger vs navigator and engine-eer.
Shapshifting, time shifting, creating the past in the present.
creating the past in the presence
creating the past in the presence

Why are we thinking of alternate timelines?
Why are we as individuals 'seeing' different timelines?
Movies and commercials are mundane, but how do we compare the really
important things that we can't 'compare notes' on?
Why can't 'old' Gods exist in the present or living truth be found in books or
Why do runes of old lack the punch they 'once' did.
How much must be engineered in the presence to be potent.

Are we creating music, lyrics and all things in our present environment in the
present to communicate to ourselves and each other?
What part of us is doing that?
Why do we associate 'old songs' to times, places and situations?
What is it we are rememembering?
Why do we feel we have fore-goten or are missing something?
What are we searching for, and where?
Memory can only exist in the present.
In the past it is lost.

It's difficult to read because everyone in this environment is compromised. Either obsessed,
possessed, or a source. If pressed I would choose the dark skinned white short sleeve garment  one simply because it is the least suspect of the three.

How does faith project the force to move a mountain ... to walk on water ... to displace oneself in time ... to shiftshape .. to fly without a plane to be bulletproof... is it ability to rearrange the electrons with ones mind to reverse polarity to fly to ... control the the bonds between particles .. the brain is electric the universe is electric .. to control it you just control the electrons with ... faith... it’s the amplifier in your mind ... but what is it amplifying ... electrons?
I don't understand the language of magic. But it seems to me that there is active and passive magic.

Passive magic is always with those who are gifted with it. No will is involved except the conscious choice to proceed into a tactical environment, regardless (thoughtless) of the consequences. Shapeshifting, invisiblity and time travel are very real but I don't know anyone who can willfully induce these phenomenon.
Love is the motivational force and when combined with dna and the Grace of your true Gods interesting things happen. The experiencer may be partially unaware of the particulars of what has happened but observers will testify.

I don't see Faith as a motivating force, more a recognition of my true self and my true source. Even then (for me) it's only a shadow that disappears when I look at it.

There may be 'active' magic for some, but I don't know about that.

Mixing with dogs is usually simple. They do well enough in the loose rules of the pack, and if angered
give you fair warning. Dogs will take a lot of abuse and ask little in return.

Horses live in the present emotional environment, you are always gaining a horses trust. You can't fool them, you are confident or not. They tolerate little abuse and when they turn it is usually without warning. They don't have fangs or claws but when they come down on you you're on your ass before you realize it.

@Possible, have you read The Hidden Hand conversations?
Ack! I'll put that right behind language crystal, 170 Dragonlance books, All the harry potter. You folks are tough!

When I was a child... Huck Finn and Winnie the Pooh taught me everything I knew,
                      mighty mouse and betty-boop to stir the stew.
                      Then saw a light distant but true,
                      I followed a trail old and new.

                      I thought in the forest, but it was the skies.
                      I came to rest my sword and eyes.
                      I found old friends weary with tries,
                      Powered by nick-nukes and fireflies.
                                    Love, Possibles
Firefly, I have started looking through hidden hand conversations that you recommended before.
 I want to describe the reconciliations that have been occuring with me the last few months and I don't think I can. It would add silly to the middle of reconciliation.
It's not so much that I have considered that I am 'losing' my mind, I have learned to trust intuition
and revelation. It was more a concern about how something of this magnitude transfers to something useful in the mondane. I'm not a practical person. I have always been looking at horizons and dreaming dreams instead giving much attention to daily matters. The things I needed in the mundane seemed to find their way to me.
Looking at horizons is safe, they are always far off. But what happens when you wake up one day and are face to face with your horizon?
On Feb 24 I distinctly remember going into the kitchen and thinking I was crazy. It wasn't an emotional thing, just a curiosity like a sideshow freak.
I made a sandwich, came back to the computer and checked the site here. You had posted music and the
third selection was the song 'crazy' with the note 'No titles today, Adds to the surprise :)
It was the same song (but by different performers) I had bookmarked for a musical post that was 'taking shape'. I think we all get little messages that we are on the right track but that was pretty powerful for me.
Sometimes you think things will start clicking if only you could  meet like minded people.
But so many people here have greatly different minds yet seem to be going in the same direction.
There is a symbiosis in the menagerie, a synthesis.
