Re: Florida Sensei

Why do you find it alarming that we know a Klingon weapon when we see one and know what it is called? Is it alarming that a community of mostly Americans should be aware of their cultural heritage? Cuz like it or not, TV is pretty much the Arbiter of culture in this country.
At least Klingon has a fully developed language and forms of martial arts. They may not be "legitimate" but they do exist and are practiced by a community every bit as intelligent as this one.And possibly More open-minded.
And if I had the opportunity to study Kilngon martial Arts, I would research the instructors qualification and lineage as thoroughly as I did my dojo.
