I don't consider Eskrima/Arnis de Mano/Kali as a Martial Art. Martial Arts are forms of combat widely practiced as a sport. Eskrima is in NO way a sport. It is a way of self-defense. You don't see people at Eskrima Competitions wackin' away at each other with plastic swords, daggers, and staffs because people who practice Eskrima practice to kill. It's not necessarily militaristic either. It's not only practiced by soldiers in the Philippine military but by civilians who wish to be ready if they are ever under attack.
Im currently studying Eskirma (filipino martial arts) but there is no belt system or form of rank. its more like military martial arts (used in times of self defense of loved ones) that tyoe of thing.
When I hear the word "nerd," I think of short, unattractive, and puny guys with glasses, shorts that reveal the knee, and a bad overbite.
When I hear "geek," I think of who people who are really into a certain thing. Be it, Nerf, cars, Paintball, Airsoft, drawing, computer games, video games, cooking, etc.
nerds=not very social, is there a word of that?
My friend is a total geek when it comes to Halo, yet he is very fit, in JROTC, and can totally kick my ass. That's a geek.
There's this guy in my P.E. He's very scrawny, has a bad overbite, he has this very disgusting yellow fluid oozing out his ear, he carries a little bag similar to a fanny pack wherever he goes, and he talks like he doesn't have a nose. That's a nerd.
I checked, I've only seen one and I completely agree with you bobafan. I want mine to be practical, comfortable, and look nice.
A SAW? To me it looks more like a M60E4. Paint that sexy beast black, with a hint of orange so cops won't go crazy, wear a scary mask-or just your ugly face, IF you have one unlike me- bring to your friend's house and run in yelling random words that don't make sense.
Hey, I just want a nerf gun I can mount on a steadycam harness so I can take down those damn Alien costume guys that show up to all the comic cons. Is that so wrong?
Honestly, I thought it looked more like a SAW than a Smartgun when I first saw it. I love the Alien movies, but this barely resembles a Smartgun. Although I do like your Idea of using a steadycam harness.
