I really know nothing about this world's lingo.
Sometimes a style is associated with a specific *studio* (like one can usually spot a Key work a mile off and Shinobu&co. have a recognizable style even when adapting very different manga art). That seems to a particular style from a particular studio but I'm not good enough to rattle off which one.

Holy shit I just realized that in less than 36 hours, I am officially a Doctor of Medicine, sans a license to practice and the actual graduation ceremonies.

Question: In Western countries, if you're in a professional field that requires a license to practice, are you allowed to carry your title (M.D., etc.) if you don't have a license as long as you're completed the prerequisite education?

Hey congrats! Yes, you can carry your title without a license. Of course you can't perform any medical practice of equal qualification unless you're licensed. It's only a title you use on a resume for an overqualified position like nursing. You won't be able to (legally) obtain a job as a pharmacist or anything. You also don't need a license for medicinal research.

Er this is only for Ontario, Canada. It's different every state/province in NA, and I don't know about European nations

In most places you can carry your title without a license if you have the pre-requisite education. Where are you planning to practice anyway?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Right, you can carry your title and present yourself as a doctor (afaik) BUT you can't *practice* without being licensed in that jurisdiction.
In the US, licensing is a state-by-state issue for medical doctors, lawyers, pharmacists, and other professional classes. In order to practice, one must have a license (which is requires pain-in-the-ass hoops to jump through in an obnoxiously different way from state to state).

Over here a practictioner has to be a PR. I don't which of us is worse.

Anyway, who know where can I get brass star-shaped cufflinks? I have this habit of refusing to wear any other shape other than stars when I go 100% formal.

I don't think there usually is a requirement to even display which kind of doctor you are.
Most still carry the 'med.', 'rer. nat.' and so on, because it makes sense, but I see enough places where the title is just 'Dr.'

Is that possible?

Can't you just unsuscribe from him? That way, he won't appear in your news feed anymore

No prob. I understand how annoying it must be when people keep posting useless stuff that take up the entire news feed. Thank God for the unsuscribe option.

I have just went to a "prepatory" Japanese Martial Arts class (Kendo and Judo) yesterday with a friend's sister, and I find that there is alot of rotework seemingly emphasised in practicing martial arts.

As compared to the CCTs I have learned in the army, which emphasises alot on "waste no time, strike to kill/maim", I do agree that constant training and practice is required to learn martial arts, however I find that going through the same movements and using only 1-2 moves every situation utterly ridiculous, alongside the ideas of opening stance, defensive stance, etc.

Is it right to convince her out of signing up for the class? I have a feeling that these classes are just "fake to earn cash" roteplay and have insufficient all-out sparring to meet with the real deal of street fighting.......I don't think I want to recommend her for the more physically intensive and dangerous Krav Maga.

I believe you should treat those martial arts as sports and not as a "how to beat someone up" tutorial.
That is, they tend to fail where no rules aply, just like other sports.

What is her intention to learn martial arts?
Is it purely for self-defense? Or just physical fitness advantage?

As i watch many of university club of martial arts, many of them just focused on physical exercise with little "intention" of street fighting...

Well a quote by Bruce Lee's wikipedia page:
Quote:
A controversial match with Wong Jack Man influenced Lee's philosophy about martial arts. Lee concluded that the fight had lasted too long and that he had failed to live up to his potential using his Wing Chun techniques. He took the view that traditional martial arts techniques were too rigid and formalistic to be practical in scenarios of chaotic street fighting. Lee decided to develop a system with an emphasis on "practicality, flexibility, speed, and efficiency". He started to use different methods of training such as weight training for strength, running for endurance, stretching for flexibility, and many others which he constantly adapted, including fencing and basic boxing techniques.

My advice is discuss with her. If she just want a physical fitness benefit, then no problem. But if she wants a real street fighting technique, direct her to something else...

Martial arts isn't supposed to be a sport in the first place; it is called "self-defence" for a reason.

Being a victim of bullying in the past, all these karate, taekwondo, judo seem more and more like a set of money-wringing sessions to me (except for Krav Maga, kungfu/taijiquan, Silat demos I have been to - they really take shit seriously). What is the use of learning all these techniques that don't emphasise on keeping your opponent down or make him bleed?

She is in her first year in uni after A-levels doing biomedical engineering and she felt that the guys are looking at her in "weird ways", and her older brother casually told her to sign up for a martial arts class and asked me to pull up contacts and leads.

Since she isn't the sports type, I have asked her to repel those guys by bringing her BL manga to school (she's a dirty little fujoshi), or by calling her brother onii-chan to induce him to escort her to school. But she doesn't want to ruin her image to her classmates, or she wants anything to do with her "useless brother who is only interested in plastic girls" (show some respect girl, your brother is an ex-Guardsman!).

Plus that annoying little thing is insistent that my suggestion of "kick between the legs and punching the Adam's apple as hard as you can" isn't enough - I told her to ask her brother again since that guy was trained how to kill people with his bare hands, and had acquainted with plenty of people who had tons of experience in streetfights during his army days.

Well, no. It is called 'martial arts'.
And as you know, arts require lots of training and their goal is to perfect style , techniques and execution.
The border between martial arts, dancing and gymnastics is blurred.

If she isnt the sporty type, it is better not to do martial arts...
Just ask her to bring a lot of pepper gun (wait, is it legal to carry pepper gun in singapore?? )..

The day-to-day practice is very rigid and formal, but when you're sparring, it's all-out. There are a few practical benefits to martial arts, such as learning how to read people's movements, learning how to control your own, getting used to violent physical contact, and learning how to manipulate a person's center of gravity (knock them down most effectively).

But if we're talking practicality, in most cases of confrontation you're not going to have the opportunity to utilize your skills. If someone pulls out a gun, it's as good as over; even someone large enough, strong enough, and/or more experienced in fighting, would be able to overpower most people who had trained in martial arts.

how would one go about getting ahold of something that is only sold in stores one can't go to or online (which is impossible because of a lack of credit card)?
