Street fighters don't have a chance against trained unarmed-combat or knife-combat soldiers, unless they have at least three-to-one preponderance or there is some other factor involved. The only exception is a quarterstaff, which is effective simply because of its range; they're damned awkward in cities, though. (BTW, you don't throw your knife against another knife within less than five meters, and not further either unless you are a wizard at darts.) -- MEET US AT POINT ORANGE AT MIDNIGHT BRING YOUR DUCK OR PREPARE TO FACE WUGGUMS John Cowan
