I'm gonna say this as nice as possible. Your attitude is going to get you in a lot of trouble one day. Shorinji Kempo may be impressive, but a knife or a gun can make your day a bad one real quick.

There are lots of people on this board, myself included, who train in muay thai. You're the first that I've seen that runs around talking like it's the ultimate fighting system against which all others will crumble. There's a reason that I don't train exclusively in muay thai.

That's not to say it's not a formidible style - it is, but you are WAY too overconfident.

You should NEVER have the attitude that you will not worry about a fight because of your training. You do not know what kind of training the other guy has had. You do not know what kind of weapons the other guy has. You do not know how many friends the other guy has. You do not know what kind of bad luck you will run in to in the fight. You can be the greatest fighter ever, but if you slip on a patch of ice at the wrong time, you can still lose.

In this particular case, Beowulf was foolishly showing off his martial arts training in a mixed crowd, and has now found himself in hot water because of it. That kind of display should not be condoned, and we certainly not suggest that Beowulf inflame the situation by telling him to go beat up on the "skate punks"


I absolutely agree with this person. However good you are you can still mess up in a fight. Your martial art skills should be treated with the greatest respect. I used to be very over-confident. I once was attacked and instead of finishing the fight quickly and gettin out of there i prolonged it, showing of. I missed a block got hit in the temple and was KOed.

Hey, Hey, Hey! Ididn't mean to cause trouble, and I wasn't Showing off either. We practice then only cause its the only time we can. Plus they annoyed us way before I started to show my MA. The last thing is that we are far away from the other people, its a big, big feild.

+ I am not over Confident or Stupid. I understand fully the Concenquences of wat could happen.

Seems to me, and please don't take this the wrong way, that if someone understands that in a fight someone could pull a knife, and understands that the consequences of that fight could be his death, and yet still goes and fights even tho they have other options. . .well, that's pretty darn stupid isn't it?

Dont be a snitch and tell teachers! Take care of it yourself. If you can take these guys than take em! Skaters are easy targets. So are preps and goths but stay away from gangstas they can fight! Take those jerks after school to some place where you cant get in trouble with the school. Beat the crap out of em, and then no more worries from skater punks.

#131776 - 04/18/05 11:02 PM Re: A couple things, PLEASE READ.

I'm not stupid, I know they wouldn't take a knife out to fight us. Hallway Fighter, Thanks, but no thanks. Not my Plan of Action. I will just wait for them to make the next move, and if they dont. There wont be any problems.

#131777 - 04/19/05 12:15 AM Re: A couple things, PLEASE READ.

Good advice Shadowfax. Some will learn the hard way-hallway fighter.

#131778 - 04/28/05 10:50 PM Re: A couple things, PLEASE READ.

gangsters can fight!?!?! HA HA HA!!! Your funny. Well they can get a bunch of looser thugs to overwhelm you and cover your nose and mouth with food stamps, but not much other than that. Are you one of those guys who thinks looser thugs are cool? You'll grow out of that. You must have gone to a crappy high school. Strait up!!!! We're poor but still have gold toofs and chains!
