Should guns be used in martial arts?

After looking at the concept of Gun Fu, i came to realize martial artists could potentially be skilled in the use of firearms when they applied their training. Many traditional martial artists believe that the use of guns would be nothing but dishonorable because after all, martial arts is rooted in using body and mind as one. The reality is that when you think of martial arts in terms of principles, the art of using any weapon is a martial art.

Contrary to popular belief, it takes quick reflexes and bodily discipline to be a skilled gunman. Stance, balance, body positioning, speed, quick reflexes, efficiency, situational awarness, strategy, deadly accuracy, and other factors determine how well a gunman performs in combat.

Should guns be used in Martial Arts? Absolutely. If martial arts is to survive, it must adapt to the modern world in order to be effectively used in self defense. It doesn't take much skill to shoot a gun or swing a sword but when you combine martial arts with the use of weapons, you become a more skilled fighter. Martial arts such as Hojutsu Ryu exemplifies this.

The use of guns is not a coward's weapon. It is simply a tool that ought to be used in the hands of a warrior who embraces the traditions of martial arts but is not bound by them. What do you think?
