take a look at this Shaolin Edict

run before u fight,
fight before u injure,
injure before u maim,
maim before u kill

I think that this is a pretty good idea to follow, however if I was in situation were they would be miluiple opponants, I would maim, rather than injure, and if it was a situatopn where they had weapons (the most common are baseball bats and knives) I would kill. basically u wantto use an equal amount of force.

I doubt the ability of any of you people to "kill". Don't inflate yourselves through implication.

In your speech you imply "I can kill a man with my bare hands".
But I think you're BSing.




While i agree it's easier for many to talk than to do, i don't think you are in a position to tell anyone what they are or are not able to do. The simple truth is many people don't truly know what they are capable of doing until they are in that situation.

Your post is unnecessary, rude, condescending and arrogant. Don't inflate yourself through ignorance.

There have been plenty of cases of people dying in street fights to untrained fighters... this is why I hate people who go out and look for trouble on a Friday night after drinking.... they dont realise how serious things can get.

There are ALSO cases of people who have walked away from PLANE CRASHES. If they can do that, what is it that makes a human being think that he can just push a few of the right buttons and their opponent will just fall over dead?? People have, on a deep level, a need to believe in fantasy. It would be fairly important for us all to weed through all the myth and hype of "martial arts" as we go about our training.

It never surprises me that the people who hold notions of such martial arts "power", are the one's who rarely engage for real with resisting opponents.

What is so amazing about ppl killing ppl in street fights? If u ever seen a street fight, it is brutal. Beating someone's head over the concrete repeatedly for a while could possibly kill them. But i do agree that going out and and looking for trouble is a good way to get killed. When u say to kill, it should mean instead that u would kill if giving a chance in that confrontation. Of course, killing someone in a street fight is a good way to get landed in jail.lol

That is the problem. Too many people don't have any understanding of things like pressure points and energy arts so to them it seems mystical. This ignorance is enhanced by the numerous frauds we have claiming to be able to knock people out without touching them and so forth. Pressure points do work but it is a FAR cry from pushing a few buttons and them falling over, that's only in the movies.

I wasn't referring to anyone using pressure points in my post. I was referring to ubermint's personal attack on other members. He has no way of knowing if any of the members of this forum would be capable of killing someone if they had to. There was no point to his post other than to start an argument.

The ability to kill isn't that difficult is it? I mean...if you can disable or knock out ur opponent in any way, you can kill him can't you? I mean all you would have to do is keep beating on them for an extended period of time AFTER they could no longer fight...
not that anyone would do that of course...
