THis one dude at school has been raggin' on me for ever about my TKD and other things. I know I could woop his ass but don't know is I should since my instructor might find out about it and one of our tenets we say before class is self control. But some others that support me beating him to a bloody pulp is honor(protecting mine),Courage(show I not afraid of anyone),courtesy(he's not showing me any). So should I beat him down to the floor.

Does he hit you, shove you, or threaten you with physical violence?

Or is he just mouthing off, expressing the view that tkd is worthless except to dance around and look pretty?

You shouldn't NOT hit someone because you are afraid you might get caught. Self-Control is SELF control. Not OUT of Self-Control. But yes...Restraint...Self-Control. Very important.


But some others that support me beating him to a bloody pulp is honor(protecting mine),

First off...did you ever beat someone or seen someone that WAS beaten to a bloody pulp. Honestly man...if you did, you wouldn't talk like that. As far as honor protecting yours? What honor do you have that you must get in a fist fight with someone that you think is a poor fighter? There is no honor in that.

Courage(show I not afraid of anyone),
Courage isn't showing you aren't afraid...look deeper...hopefully you can find a better answer to Courage than that.

courtesy(he's not showing me any).
Didn't know HE was in TKD? Courtesy is for YOU..these tenets are for YOU...not him.

So should I beat him down to the floor.

Walking away is probably the harder thing to do...and yet it is the right thing. Unless this guy is physically attacking you or someone else...let him say whatever the heck he wants. They are only words. Do you think you are THAT Valuable to the world that somehow even uttering a word against you is a sin?

Grow up man. Most of the world doesn't even know you.

honestly man,

you probably are under 18 old.
most of people here are older, so for them it is easy to say that because they are more mature then us.

if somebody pay me out like that, i would hit hit. but just to let him see what i can do. i wouldnt smack him down.
i know im wrong, but some times doing the ringh thing isnt doing the ring thing.

am i older than 18? yes.

but i walked away from fights before i was over 18 too.

Trust me just because you go over the age of 18 doesn't mean people don't try to call you out.

Hell I've been called out more as an adult than I ever did in school.

You can "hit hit hit" all you want man. But I garuan-damn-tee you that there is someone bigger, stronger, faster and a hell of a better fighter than you and that is the cat that is going to kick your ass all over the place.

That and what happens when you do hit hit hit hit...and the gets back up next week and puts a bullet in your head.

Think man think...is anything someone says to you worth your life?

Remember everything you do HAS to be worth your life because you have NO idea when you will die.

hi ariel

to walk away is pretty hard... i dont think i can do it, unfornatualy.

u said, somebody can came and kick his ass. i desagree, because he is not looking for a fight, just some dude wants to make fun of him.

would be good if he just give him a lesson, do not hurt him but, show him what u can do.

am i wrong?
probalby.
but maybe because my culture is diferent then yours and im not mature enough yet to walk away.

trust me...walking away, although hard at times, is the best.

if the best was easy, we all would be the best [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/wink.gif[/IMG]

I was waiting for tkdsam to respond with what the moron was actualy doing,but oh well.

I once had a friend of a friend who claimed to train in kung fu. He was constantly shooting his mouth off about how bad ass he was. My friend made the mistake of telling him I trained in an art. After that he was constantly harrassing me,getting in my face, waving his hands around like he was going to hit me. After putting up with this for months, he finaly caught me on a bad day. I didn't hurt him, I merely embarassed him very badly. I knew there would be no retaliation-he was a gutless blowhard whose bluff had been called.

I also have many instances where I have just smiled at people and walked away.

Make a personal decision-will there be retaliation, friends getting involved, consequences if happens at school,law enforcement involvement, etc.

Good luck, hope you make the right decision.

Dude, i got a bigger problem. Someone at my school taht sits at my talbe and is in my group in home ec class keeps trying to stab people with his pencil/marker. Including me. It gets to the point where it pisses you off enough to actually get mad but not enough to tell anyone. I just need to know a good move or two to to cripple his ass. If anyone can direct me to a good website or a good crippling strike, do tell.
