OK guys I think the issues behind gang membership is slightly deeper than being "retarded". Identity and fear play a huge part. Never ever try to intimidate someone unless you're prepared to "walk the walk"...remember the old saying "You can't hurt whats not there!" so avoidence is always the best option.

Lets get this thread back into the realms of MA's or social issues outside of the playground please.

Don't forget poverty. I don't think some of you would be so brazen if more of these guys could afford to take MA classes. And don't you dare say "oh, no MA school would ever teach a bunch of hoods", because I've seen it. In fact, a friend of mine was once beaten within an inch of his life by three gangbangers that knew judo.
But go ahead, keep judgementally saying to people so much more "stupid" or "retarded" than you to "just hit me".
See where ya end up -

It was nice of them to identify the art they used as they did him over.
Technicaly this would make them 'Gang-grapplers' as opposed to gangbangers wouldnt it?

You are correct though, gang violence has the potential to be far more dangerous than the glib attitude on this thread. Notice that whilst I poke fun in my initial post, I also point out I have taken precautions to ensure no repurcussions to my wife and property from these little thugs.
Acknowledging that they act and dress in a way worthy of ridicule, does not reduce their ability to stove your head in when there are enough of them who fancy the job.

Play safe kids

I know its kinda obvious that if yo say "just hit me" and they do it, theres always gonna be a risk of some kind.
eg. getting knocked out, one od the worst things about chavs is not only do they hang round in large groups if they manage somehow to knock you out, they have been known to to give you what they call "head stomps" while your unconsious, I've read and heard on the news, situations where people end up either dying or being left with permanant brain damage because of these idiots, if you stamp on someones head while someones unconsious, your either evil or retarded (probably the latter).

Poverty I agree is a cause for this 'grouping', kids that have nothing but themselves and their family to look after and no mkotivation to do well in school.
So they create groups or 'gangs' as a means of looking out for eachother.

But where I live this is not the case, their usually well off kids who merely wish to be something the're not, just a bunch of morons like I described in my last post.

But I really think that if parents have the means to get their kids into some sort of discipline, whether it's MA, fishing, youth clubs, whatever.
This way they have something to do with their spare time and meet friends that have a similar interest.

Hey, I lived in Newark, NJ (thank God I left) and growing up was pretty fun for me seeing all these wanna be ganstas, tacheads, and Nation of Islam type. I remembered my friends would change their name, for example: A guy named John Simmons would be like; "Yo! my name aint John no more, that's the white slave name I used to have!! my name is Hakim Mustafa Ali-Okbar!!" Then he'd hang out with the local "I just got ou of Jail possey". My reaction; what an idiot!! . or if a guy wanted to be cool, he'd try and hang with the "down" folk. I think I might have been one of the few brothers with a Dad living at home and having a good job (Newark Police Officer). The whole gansta, ganster, gang thing escaped me because I didn't feel like I needed to be with a bunch of jackass to deal with my problems and my parent always told me to learn to make your own way!! I had to admit, these idiots were always fun to watch; especially when they didn't have their boys around to help them!! !!

You should hear the music they listen to, either rap (standable) or 'garage', garage just sounds like a guy who's had his nuts hooked up to the national circuit and gone into a verbal spasm.

Eg. yo, meandmyboysisbadsodontmessoryougetblesttothechest....yeah

They go along the streets in their cars listening to this rubbish trying to scare pensioners along the way...now dont mess innit!

Some common "GANGSTER" phrases:

-these come after "you is" or "this man is"

TIC = muscular

TONK = muscular

HENCH = muscular

BLENCH = muscular

(basicly, tic = tonk = hench = blench = muscular)

-these usually come after "im gonna" or "your gonna get"

CREWED= beaten up

MERKED= beaten up

POPPED= beaten up or shot

SPARKED OUT= beaten up

(basicly, crewed = merked = popped = sparked out = beaten up)

Just a couple off the top off my head can you think of more?


Sure; How 'bout this sentence: Yo, kid I aint got beef witchu...but yo boy been in my grill over some bull**** 'bout dis skeezer up in da bricks!!

Folks -

Let's stay on topic here. Gang lingo has nothing to do with martial arts.
