"All the fights I got into as a kid that I remember were all different and unique and with some moves I've not yet seen in karate. I s'pose that several dozen situations of facing someone holding a weapon on you would all be unique and different too. How do you adequately prepare for a thousand different scenarios? Maybe you could if you lived your life to prepare for that one moment that may never happen."
I guess this is why Mr. Canna and others stress the importance of a small number of basic techniques, practiced over and over and over and over again.
I haven't commented too much this forum lately because I don't know much about guns, so I'm not about to go shooting off like a pseudo expert.
I will admit that the recent chains have gotten me more into seriously considering taking up some small arms training and visiting a gun range periodically afterwards to keep up the skills. My questions (as Cecil The Questioning--man, I love that; I was one of those kids that asked "why" all the time--are one, what to really look for in a coure, as a novice, and two, how often should I visit the range in order to maintain my skills.
I'd also like that address that Mr. Canna had put up for Mr. Ayoob's web page. I've lost it!
You can e-mail me now at:email@example.com
You can visit my text-oriented webpage at
<A HREF=http://creativebrother.freehosting.net>creativebrother.freehosting.net</A>, where I pontificate on the martial arts and other aspects of life.
And don't worry, I'm not into stealing other people's comments for my own web space!
Also, all of MY political comments will be kept on MY page since that is "my house" so to speak, and here, I am a MEMBER, not an administrator!
Peace, love, and SOOOUUUUULLLLLLLLLLL (Train)
