• Is it intimidating to collect knives or weapons in general?

    I collect knives such as daggers, hunting knives, throwing knives, swiss army knives, folding knives, utility tools and other miscellaneous knives live batarangs, citrus folding knives, ulu knives (both folding and the normal knives) and things like that. Of course, the only ones I carry around are folding knives, swiss army knives and utility tools... show more
    I collect knives such as daggers, hunting knives, throwing knives, swiss army knives, folding knives, utility tools and other miscellaneous knives live batarangs, citrus folding knives, ulu knives (both folding and the normal knives) and things like that. Of course, the only ones I carry around are folding knives, swiss army knives and utility tools and I only carry those where it is legal to carry them. I also own a bow and arrows and a crossbow pistol. I am majoring in criminology and I, eventually, want to own a gun for my career. But most people either laugh at me or look appalled or freaked out when they find out that I own a lot knives. I don't really look that intimidating. In fact, I am a 4'10" Korean American girl. I'm not really tomboyish or anything, but my dad always carries pocket knives so he kind of got me hooked on them. Is it really that intimidating to collect knives or other various weapons?

I was just wondering because I am Korean America; I did used to take a martial art called shou shu and I have made it to a brown belt, but I have looked at different martial arts and out of everything I saw, it seems like korean martial arts are mostly sports-based and a lot of their fighting styles do not look like they would really be useful in life or death situations. So are there any self-defense based Korean fighting styles? And if so what are they called?
