Re: Yes...it IS a matial art....
but old grump , Mars was armed witha javelin a shield and a obsidian knife
all manual weapons
you needed skill to use them and why Martial came to being ( as used by mars or martial )
and firearm aint a manual thing its power is derived chemically , unless you put a botonet on the end and use it that way
then its once again a martial art or skill
