We must have some terrible, terrible, terrible instructors that teach all these thugs all this dirty fighting that's gonna beat the well-trained, honest martial artist.

No, the thugs of the world are the slime of the world and have not the ability or the nature to train at a thing. He's thinking boot to the head just about as much as I am worried about scoring my next vial of crack, if you get my drift...

I was a Marine.
I was a bouncer.
I've worked show and entertainment security for years.
I have scars from knive and razor attacks.
I've had to fight cue-stick wielding drunks.
I have disarmed a young man about to shoot me.
I also have sat waiting for another nut to shoot me, knowing I was going to die, unable to move from the position I was in without ensuring the pull of the trigger.

Now, I'm willing and ready to admit that I know less than you about self-defense.

I'll give you that one.

To write me off as inexperienced and maybe na´ve may be an act of na´vevity itself.

That overconfidence is what will allow you, and my hypothetical thug to get taken to the cleaners every time. You limit the possibilities. You confine the spirit. You handicap the athlete. You disarm the warrior. Does the name McClellen mean anything to you?

IK - What did you edit that post for?

Content?

It wasn't grammar...

[IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]

Personal attacks are a worthwhile debate tool. Wouldn't you say? Discredit the person, smear them, say something really nasty and funny and thus you discredit the argument. Nice. Neat. Kudos, sir...

[IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]

WELL DONE!

Made me look bad!

You could say almost anything that sounded remotely like I'm sorry.

But Red Green has it wrong. The hardest thing for men to say is not, "I don't know," but, "I was wrong, I will endeavor to keep my kicks above the belt since this is just sparring and not a life-or-death street self-defense situation and I can discuss my preferences without feeling that my expertise is being impuned..."

And I thought I had laid the groundwork for a decent dialog by first establishing some of my admiration for some of the finer points of Issynryu. Shall we try again?

Fantastic. You know, sometimes a conversation is just like our martial world...

You just don't respect a guy until you've been in the ring and thrown some feet...er, uh, punches [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG] , and gotten to know each other just a little better!

That's funny!

Harrison sensei always said most people couldn't tell fear from respect and that respect could, indeed, flow from fear!
