Happy February! Happy Chinese New Year! Happy anything else that's happened since I last posted!
Nothing has happened to me over the past couple days except for school, so I'm going to write on a topic started on Seth's blog and continued first on Heidi Mae's and now on mine.
KNIVES! GUNS! Et cetera! [insert maniacal laughter here]
Because I used to live outside Chicago, I understand the need to carry a weapon for your protection. The problem is, knowing you have a weapon is you tend to do things more rashly, less thinking and such. I carry a knife around everywhere just in case, and I've been taught how to use it by my black belt neighbor who's taught me other karate and how to use a kubotan. Actually, the kubotan keychain is a lot better because it only takes a little training to get the hang of, but it isn't something your opponent would know what to do with if he got it from you. It's basicly just a metal stick with a keychain on the end, but I know some routines with it that could easily end up breaking arm and elbows and such. How's that for cheerful?
