though it is pitiful to see people controlled by such emotions that cause them to fight. i have other fighting sites but i feel like only paranoid,white,conservatives frequent them. this site seems to be dominated by obsessed youth,and that one minister. plus the people overly concerned with philosophy.

prithivi,
A true martial artist trains to avoid confrontation first and fight only when necessary. The discipline is not just about obeying authorities its internal discipline to control you emotions and to fight only when the need arises. To search out conflict is foolish. Real fights are ugly things which cannot really be enjoyed.
If you have to fight, then fight to win but it takes more of a man to walk away.

Prithivi-

If you are branding me "pretentious", you are sadly mistaken. I am not one who preaches or condoles submissiveness either. Martial arts discipline is something I have learned, and it has little to do with authority. While I am not going to fight out of verbal bouts, I have no submissiveness to authority, I have respect to my instructors, but I am nobody's bitch.

Martial arts discipline is about being secure in the fact that you have the skills to tremendously overwhelm whoever is harrassing you, but you know when to use it and when to walk away. If you feel threatened by a situation or are struck, that is the time to act. If you are angered over someone calling you a "bitch-ass-pussy", that is not.

That is a fairly accurate description chang wufei. Maybe not the most eloquent, but fairly accurate. Martial arts are about resolving conflict. In the most quick and painless way possible. Fighting is for idiots. As a martial artist it is your role to avoid it if at all possible, if not then to end it quickly.

I have only just joined this site and I cannot believe how hostile some of you guys are toward each other!! Prihivi, you have serious issues dude, the best bit of advice I could give you is read Geoff Thompsons books, if you dont know who he is, he was an ex bouncer of 20 odd years who has been involved in hundreds of street fights and would disagree with your views 100%
This guy along with a few others have changed my views completely on how to handle violent situations.
Check out the www.geoffthompson.com forum for excellent advice and also how to talk to other forum members.

Hi Bulletman, glad to see you on here. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/wink.gif[/IMG]

It's only the minority that let this site down at times, unfortunately. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/frown.gif[/IMG]

prithivi, to want to fight is usually down to ego and/or peer pressure. I think you just enjoy winding people up. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]

Take care,

Gaffer.

prithivi,
I applaud your candidness prithivi, Most folks don't want to admit just how violent they are or just what they are capable of. There is no use denying it. If I were to tell most people what I am truly capable of they would recoil in horror. It's not because I'm a trained martial artist but because I'm human. I'm also capable of kissing babies, writing poetry, drawing cartoons of half naked form members. I'm also about options and the freedom to choose my options. If you tell someone fight, don't fight, theres two options. People offer ideas so MantisFist is free to choose options that he feels work for him.
