    Most people seem to be obsessed with learning the more popular eastern martial arts such as karate or kung fu, but there are also various European martial arts that seem to be effective. Irish stick fighting is a form of stick fighting that uses a stick to fight.

    Since canes are one of the best legal weapons you can carry anywhere in many nations, I think it would be cool to learn Irish stick fighting and buy a nice cane.

    @IamNRE Guns is also great, but you can not carry guns all the time. Its is a great advantage if you know some martials arts if guns is not around.

    Btw, we have also lots of guns here, my province is the biggest gun manufacturer in the philippines. We even exports it to other countries. Caliber 45 and 9mm here only cost $20-$100, Uzi and kg9 with silencer only cost $ 200-$300. If you like guns here you can buy it easily.

    Barney makes more sense now. Guns are good tools. Obsessing about them is likes obsessing about you screwdriver set.


    As far as the Irish Dudes, what happens if they lose their sheleighly me boyo? Old fashioned fisticuffs aren't cutting edge in the 21st C! :yo:

    That's awesome. I've been wanting to learn Eskrima for a few years but haven't taken the step to join. There's a popular academy in my area that I plan to try.

    The only weapon better than a loaded gun are the mind potentials of the men holding them. ;)

    Why the hell would you learn to fight with a cane? In Ireland?! Who carries canes in fear of being attacked? Id rather stick to using my own hands and feet .. Weapons are gay!

    These videos make them look awesome, because they are coming at him very slow, but i guarantee if somebody wanted to actually cause damage with a cane, and not demonstrate, then a full powered swing at full speed will not be able to be blocked
