You are walking down the street when a dozen Talibanis on Choppers begin to circle you. They were trained in special GreenBeret ninja techniques by the FBI, what you gonna do? Fortunately, you are ready, you are wearing trousers, and they are held up by that most wicked of all martial arts weapons…the deadly belt!
Now, you think I am kidding, but I am not. You are about to get a lesson in, uh, belt fu. Or Belt-kido, or whatever.
First, always make sure the belt you are wearing isn’t too thick. You need to be able to pull it out of the loops fast and easily. Then hold that belt firmly, and get ready to kick a large portion of ass!
The buckle portion is excellent for use as a brass knuckles. Grip it firmly, make sure you don’t hit in such a fashion that your own knuckles will break. Then, belt held tight, smack away with impudence.
If you have sharp edges on the buckle it can be used to slice and dice. Heck, swinging the belt as a flail or a whip, you can make mincemeat out of a home intruder. Just make sure it doesn’t bounce back and shave your own pretty face!
Now, here’s something for those of you with a bit of discipline and rocks, the kind of rocks you pick up off the ground. You can use the belt as a sling! Can anybody spell Goliath out there?
Now, believe it or not, there are actually six nasty, little tricks listed thus far, though you might have to figure them out. So what is the seventh way to use a belt as a weapon? Simply use that belt to wrap up some arms, or some punches or to choke a neck.
Okey dokey and ain’t this a blast, thats a lot of stuff you can do with a simple piece of clothing…and don’t get me started on using socks. One warning, however, please make sure your pants won’t fall fall when you pull the belt out…taking your pants off in the middle of a streetfight isn’t good strategy, unless your attacker dies of laughter. And, all points being made, That is how you make Seven Deadly Martial Arts Weapons out of a strap of leather with an ornament on the end.
Okey dokey, guys, click on over to Monster Martial Arts and find the page on Blinding Steel.
