    A furry is a person who likes anthropomorphic animals and artwork of such stuff.

    I don't care what people think of me but I want to have 15 minutes of fame like allot of people.

    Yes it is a wasted motion you got me.

    I have a skill set of Chinese Kung Fu Wing Chun.

    You seem to have issues with telling people something and them not believing you or obeying your every command.

    Someone who wants to hold a weapon to be "cool" probably needs to listen to those who know better

    Or not - it's your funeral.

    Possibly literally

    Sadly the news is littered with those who want their 15 minutes of fame.

    Be famous for something else.

    You have other beliefs, so be famous for getting them recognised.

    I can honestly answer that as a resounding - No.

    If the only reason you want to carry a baton is to look cool, I would advise against it. Have you asked your instructor what she or he thinks about this idea? What did your instructor say?

    Wearing weapons to look cool as part of a costume at a party or convention or whatever is fine. I didn't do it, but I enjoyed watching all the people at past Xena conventions in costumes. Back in the day, when I went to San Diego Comic Con, watching people in costumes was fun too. But in regular life walking down the street? It isn't smart IMO. There is a proper time and place for everything. But everything is not cool at any time in any place.

    Learning to use a weapon because it is fun or cool to do so is perfectly fine IN your school. Or wherever you need to practice where such a thing is allowed. But to do it for the purpose of drawing attention to yourself to look cool, nah. Just not smart IMO.

    I don't know how widespread this is in other CLF schools, but my school is similar. We have stick fighting class, and in that class, we also learn blade techniques and how to use them with the stick. There is a pretty decent amount of crossover. In particular, I find my TCC Gim experience to be very helpful in stick fighting class.

    Also, the weapon, whatever weapon is an extension of the body. So, a lot of the body mechanics cross over. The first example that comes to mind : dan-lan (Sideways chop) has the body behind it moving the same way, whether it is a hand strike or a stick strike. Although there is a slight difference in the wrist action. Although even then there is a similar intent to generate a very similar energy.

    Whilst you have the time, better yourself and your prospects by taking college courses, there's plenty online, get skilled and make some money, then you can do whatever you like afterwards.

    Otherwise where are you going to be in ten years time........

    You can do it bro, but it's all down to the choices you make!

    If you have any contact with a mental health professional it might be worth talking to them about some of this.

    You sound like you have some self esteem issues and your not doing much productive in life atm, have you tried volunteer charity work?

    Thanks for the thought. But I dont know how it is where you live but here in america so many people have college degrees they are becoming more and more worthless. I have 3 friends all with degrees from college and they have jobs that dont require a degree or any specialized skill and have tons and tons of college debt.

    Not trying to sound egotistical or such but I am one of the most well read people I know.

    This has given me an idea for a thread on automation and how it may or may not affect the Martial arts world.

    And yet they have jobs..... And you don't..... And have already said you don't have the right Qualifications to get one.

    You say your in your thirties, you've Only got a narrow window of time to get your life sorted out.

    Fantasising about being a hero with Daredevil batons won't help you.

    You have been given a lot of awesome advice from a lot of knowledgeable people - it would be a shame if you chucked it back in their faces because it's not what you want to hear.

    Carry any weapon to make you "look cool" is a bad idea - it may even end up being a target on your back if the wrong person(s) take notice. You may not even get as chance to deploy it.

    Sounds to me like they are working - far from worthless.

    Even if you don't go to college you can still find vocational training

    Get out more.

    If you enjoy that type of thing there are any number of associations and clubs where you will meet people who have a massive amount of reading under their belt across a plethora of subjects. there are even writing groups open to you where they can harness your enthusiasm for that into earning potential

    It won't

    Rather than assuming that they have jobs due to them having degrees why don't you ask more questions. The reason they have jobs is because they can work in environments where its crowded and noisy and has bright lights and tons of smells. AKA a grocery store. I legitimately don't function in that type of environment. Legitimately there are times where I have to use meditation and such from martial arts training just so I can finish shopping and get home.

    Lol prison wallet that reminds me of a funny story when I was in high school I got wikipedia banned for around 2 weeks cause I got bored and was reading about fetishes and such on it. It boggles my mind why I did not get talked to about it. I mean its not like the IT staff could not figure out who was looking at stuff like that maybe they were just incompetent.

    Honestly I am not sure how much more I will post on this thread so don't be surprised if I don't reply on this thread or such.

    For such a well read person, you don't seem to know, what egoistical means, is that possible?
    AT least here it means something else.

    Now I get it :D

    Which would be high likely.

    He didn't assume that, you have written that.
    You even confirmed it here a second time.

    Somebody so well read as you, should remember what he has written as well ;)

    I was thinking about this yesterday. A concealed stick does not look cool -- because it does not look like anything, because no one can see it. It's "concealed" -- hidden, invisible. That's not cool at all, not even a little bit. Soooo, my idea/suggestion is that you make a scabbard for the stick. Perhaps two scabbards, for two sticks. You could either make it to wear on your back like what the movie character "Kick-Ass" made for himself, or make it to hang on your waist as if from a carpenter's tool belt.

    My initial idea on how to do it is to get pvc pipes of the right diameter, and then sew a bag around them, and sew appropriate straps for either your back or your waist. The pipes will provide a rigid form just like a scabbard for a real sword, so the sticks will slide in and out easily.

    (shrug) I dunno, but for me, one or two sticks in a customized carrying rig that I can wear, would be way way way cooler than carrying anything concealed.

    Easier way, get a bo staff or quater staff and use it as a walking stick. Thats how you carry it.

    Also as the other people ahve said, you might need to look at getting a collapsable one, because thats the oyl weapon you can really conceal carry in the stick catergory.

    Train hard enough so that you are the concealed weapon.

    Now THAT is cool.

    I don't like the term weapon, I think the word tool more accuratly defines how I treat them.

    And I'm always the biggest tool in any room! ;)
