 Creating a Martial Arts Style in RPG's
For weapon-method styles (and for weapons incorporated in other styles), the base damage of the weapon is added to the base damage modifier of the style to gain a damage for comparison for a damage die.
Remember, the decision that a style is aggressive or defensive is only a guideline to aid in distributing the points; if the referee decides that a style has a strong sit-mod against opponent attacks plus a damage point bonus in favor of the skilled character's attacks, then that is the nature of the style.
Unmarked weapons are "martial arts only", and can only be learned in conjunction with a style; proficiency cannot be taken in such weapons without an associated style, but non-proficient use (with penalties) is possible without a style, doing damage indicated under the "0" column.

 Insurgency weapon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An insurgency weapon is a weapon, most often a firearm, that is intended to be smuggled or airdropped behind enemy lines, and used by insurgents to engage in guerrilla warfare against an occupier, or for use by rebels against an established government.
Insurgency weapons differ from improvised weapons also commonly used by insurgents in that insurgency weapons are carefully designed and manufactured outside the area of rebellion or insurgency, while improvised munitions are manufactured on the spot.
Purpose-built weapons were designed from the start to be used primarily for insurgent use, and are fairly crude, very inexpensive, and simple to operate; many were packaged with instructions targeted to speakers of certain languages, or pictorial instructions usable by illiterate users or speakers of any language.

Through articles, videos, and seminars, many martial artists who were not previously exposed to the defensive applications of the cane have come to accept the fact that it is a very practical and generally legal weapon which can be effectively used in self defense.
Defensive strikes at range two should be limited to upward driven handle strikes under the jaw or nose of your opponent, side strikes with the handle to his temple region, lower shaft strikes to his groin, and powerful downward motion tip strikes to the top of his foot.

 Defensive weapon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
With the advent of the Bronze Age, the defensive weapon of choice became a dagger or sword.
With the advent of the reliable handgun, the sword began to fade in importance as a defensive weapon of choice, although there was a considerable overlap when it was not uncommon to see sword and pistol worn at the same time.
Apart from its range, another redeeming factor for using a handgun as a defensive weapon is that its power is largely independent of the strength of the user--it depends on the power of its cartridge, rather than the ability of the user to swing a heavy club or blade.

 rec.guns FAQ: V.I. Self-Defense; Armed and Unarmed (2nd Edition)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
All weapons require some training to become proficient, and without both the attitude to use the weapon and the awareness to deploy the weapon while you still have a chance, no weapon, be it firearm or pepper spray, is of any use whatsoever.
For defensive use, the weapon must be available, meaning either you maintain physical control over the weapon at all times (carrying it on you) or invest in one or more of the safety devices on the market, ranging from trigger locks to bedside safes that open via an easily mastered but difficult to deduce pattern.
Such weapons can be used by specially trained people who require a low-bulk weapon, but they are difficult to use, not nearly as accurate as a full-stock weapon, and essentially useless for any normal defensive application.
