Now that's good! You should trademark that, put it on tee-shirt, or surreptiously put it in fortune cookie for an unwitting recipient at a cheap Chinese restaurant.




Heck, I'd buy that t-shirt! (Or fortune cookie mmm )

WOW CORD!!!

That’s a little oversensitive. I forgot how fragile some martial artist egos are. My mistake.

As for my comments being directed at you, well if the cap fits, wear it. But I certainly didn’t have members ship of your fan club as my agenda. I should imagine you aren’t short of members and really don’t need me, very kind of you to offer anyway.

Last time I helped someone on this forum? You wouldn’t know, as I wont BOAST about it, unlike some.
Also I might exercise my free will and Choose NOT to try and help other, complete strangers, on this forum.. Is that allowed?

Regards

Mark

I have never considered myself a martial artist, I am not in active study of any art at the moment, and even when I am, I dont think there is any 'art' in what I do

I was not being oversensitive, I was however, the only person to give Crab a particularly hard time over his actions as detailed in this thread, therefore, there is no one else your negative comment could be aimed at.

I dont agree with everyone, nor am I always agreed with, but I dont agree that I am 'self righteous', and it certainly is never my motivation or intention when posting.

So it was aimed at me. That indicates that I didnt offer membership, you kind of applied. If you take an oblique swipe at someone, expect to be called on it. Action and reaction- its the way of the world.

Did you not see how i put this aspect in my post to specificaly highlight what a 'self righteous' post would be like, as opposed to just offering an opinion on the events detailed (as Crab wanted- he didn't have to tell us anything about the incident. By posting it, he was inviting comment from us all)

Quote:

Of course it is. Maybe that is the trouble. I dont see Crab as a 'complete stranger'. He is a good kid, so if I said 'well done mate' everytime he did something stupid/dangerous, I could validate actions that if repeated could get him killed. That would upset me greatly.

If you dont care, why contribute at all? go read a book.

Great come back Cord!! That is what I love about forums, a good argument, ( and not just the 5 minutes )

I have always marvelled at how some people take posts from complete strangers so personal: I just enjoy a good hard debate ( oh err Missus ) Which is the sole reason I post controversial opinions, Lol Some of the time, I vehemently disagree with what I write, just want to see where it will go.

You got me with this:- “So it was aimed at me. That indicates that I didnt offer membership, you kind of applied. If you take an oblique swipe at someone, expect to be called on it. Action and reaction- its the way of the world.”

I wont underestimate you again

how devastating was your sloppy right hook? you said he was drunk and a sloppy punch most likely wouldnt be enough for his friend and him to try to get you. unless you were 2x the size of him

About 6 o clock tonight I was walking down to the video shop with a friend (japenese exchange student) to get a few movies. Anyway we were walking down one of the ramps leading to the shopping centre in which i noticed two druggo looking guys sitting down and talking. I didnt think much of it so we walked past them, suddenly the scruffy looking skinny one started yelling insults. " come here you [censored] dog hair [censored]" etc. Anyway I didnt want to get in a fight with 2 18 year olds so I walked on without saying anything. Anyway just as we were turning the corner into the shops he yelled anotehr insult, and I turned around and told him to [censored] off. As soon as I said that he ran over and tried to punch me in the face. I am extremely lucky he missed as I think it would have knocked me out, which god knows would have happened. Anyway after he threw the punch I threw a massively sloppy right hook, which connected. We then bolted like we had [censored] ants in our undies and ran into the shops. I was extremly lucky that he missed and I didnt, and that I had enough sense to run away. I admit, to my annoyance, that all my training went to hell and all I could think about was getting away. Im sure I wouldnt be in great shape right now had he not been drunk or whatever he was. Anyway I dont think ill walk around at night for a while, and hopefully you will take care too. I know it sounds silly, but please watch out where you walk at night, you might not be as lucky as me




there is nothing wrong with running away. although i was not trained this in my dojo.. i was trained this as a reserve cop.. that if you can run away to avoid fighting, do so.. i don't see anything cowardice about this.. maybe cuz i'm female?..lol...there was a situation once.. where i just walked away quickly. this guy was staring at me on the train.. and then he got up, and moved over to my side.. and i think he tried to touch me.. and i could've waited around to see if he tried to make contact again.. but instead of dealing with that.. and possibly having to hurt him. i just walked to the next car...he was high too i think...

My two cent the only mistake you made was mouthing off in the last minute and expecting too much from yourself.

You did well until his last insult, then you had to say something. Thats just being human sometime its hard to take and take and take. It seem like you were a victim of circumstance any and everybody can and will be one if we keep living and walking the streets at night. Maybe he learned something, Maybe he will be quite next time he see two people walking at night. You also learned a valuable lesson, victory in the street is survival.

As for sloppy technique, in your own words he missed you didn't that = success, in my books. Some consider me a high rank black belt, but in hind sight if I could take back the techniques that worked but didn't look good, I wouldn't. What I realized IS that it did Worked, I've knocked people down and out with sloppy techniques (especially hooks, sometimes have entered that technique in my things to improve, if he doesn't know what it is the greater chance of him getting hit hard).

My real point is when you fight it's not gonna look like a Kata or the movies most time.

As long as it works is what counts. Now practice that hook so that next time you deck him or splatter his nose.

One thing you found out sloppy or not you get to tell your story to assoicates with teeth in your mouth and not from a hospital bed to a police detective.

Do your thang dude, work that hook punch try to combo it with a grion kick for me. Like the game of horse shoes sloppy counts on the real if you survive.
