    I remember the "KARATE" Era,everybody walking around making karate fists and imitating the Bruce Lee look and noises,back then you could watch one Bruce Lee movie and walk out of the theatre a Mental black belt,after 2 or 3 you were a force to be reckoned with.Karate Dojo's popped up all over and a lot of people were enrolling to be able to protect themselves,after all that I found out buying a gun and paying for a permit is a lot cheaper and less strenuous

    Martial arts should be looked at as a hobby and not a self-defense method.

    Come on, you guys. I get that Bruce Lee is a movie star with great talent for athletics and communication.
    While martial arts is a fine hobby, there are many methods of martial arts. Some teachers encourage competition and stress. Asian martial arts are battle-proven. These aspects don't describe "hobby".
    The successful practice of martial arts mindset, dynamic posture, and spirit does more for my general self defense - including shooting performance - than I expect shooting ever will.
    I'll let you know how I like the movie.

    Yeah but the permit has its limitations where you can carry it and you have to go through a background check for a gun. And even then, not every situations would justify the use of a gun. So learning some unarmed H2H skills is still paramount unless one is so severely disabled.

    There are some martial arts that are true in its self-defense applications. Unfortunately, it has become to the point of a sporting hobby. But if you want to learn self-defense, I suggest either adrenaline stressed training or reality based self-defense/combatives. I myself have strayed from learning martial arts to reality based systems since I am getting a little older.

    How do you rate the knockdown power of your fist to a .22LR? Sufficient? :)

    I don't need either. I am the weapon.

    Oh, and Gene Lebell, the father of MMA, unless Bruce is the father, then Gene Lebell is the grandfather. Very informative documentary. Enjoyed it, my friend.

    Everybody's Bruce Lee after a Bruce Lee movie. But it's their own Bruce Lee.

    Martial arts also teach breathe control, footwork, and the ability to do things unders stress. It also keeps one fit. And that made a difference in one of the combat shooting courses at Blackwater that is stress induced. Those who couldn't quite cut it were either out of shape or had poor breath control. Your footwork and movements also become fluid and catlike as one of the instructors told me as he asked me if I took martial arts before.

    I really hope that you are kidding. Having trained in Kenpo Karate for over 25 years and using it effectively in street encounters as a Police Officer in the South Bronx, I can say with the utmost certainty, that it is a viable self-defense method.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    The three Cs of Karate: courage, calmness, and concentration: all of which create confidence. How do those not help you in any self-defense situation? Another principle: distribute the punishment according to the situation. Again, helpful in any self-defense situation. One more: balance, breathing and situational awareness. The list could go on. There is a huge difference between sport arts and defensive martial arts.
