IMHO, the hand that holds the weapon is always the weapon.

In FMA (Filipino martial arts: Kali, escrima, and arnis) we start with weapons (sticks and blades) and then transfer those same techniques to the hands.

I agree about the over conditioning. I have friends who can barely walk or hold a pencil because to too brutal breaking training. Which is great if you don't intend to live into arthritis.

Until again,

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
