I wonder if I can use the skin of the rabbit as part of a heavy bag, I think it would be good leather since the stuff was as tough as hell at first, but when I got the old wrist action going there was no stopping me

seriously dcm, I concur. You can't just blame everything on the dojo, and you have to be realistic... people do have there imperfections, and if I don't say anything, there is the possibility they will walk all over me.




You keep thinkin' that. You'll probably stop when you wake up in a hospital after having your teeth extracted from your stomach.

And don't get me wrong - I don't blame your dojo for what you did. YOU were the one being stupid. However, if your dojo lets you get away with this kind of crap, then you need a new dojo. What you did would get you kicked out of my dojo if we found out about it. We don't teach people who can't control themselves, and you mouthing off like that would show us that you can't control yourself. A good martial artist realizes that avoiding a fight is the main goal.

I have to go to sleep, but thanks for the feedback DCM.

shadow, I was looking for replies from people with experience who can share their wisdom. Not computer warriors.

Assault with a deadly weapon vs. my one insult... who was the one being stupid?

anyway shadow, I can tell you are very strong and very wise

and I am sure you are in situations like this all the time, that is why you have such excellent advice.

I can only envy you and your ethereal "dojo" and hope that one day, I too... can turn the other cheek?

Thanks for the effort shadowkahn, but it seems that your judgement is flawed due to lack of experience.

And shadowkahn, if there are any tournaments in your area, please invite me... then we will see who's teeth get extracted from their stomach.

Anyway, in other news, as I was riding down the street from work last night, I was chased by a crazy dog that was sitting by a car.

Man I am glad I had my bike fixed, if I was jogging I would have had some hurt ankles.

lol, I love my neighborhood

hey coyboy, he's offering the advice that an adult would give you. mouthing off back at the guys and having such a gung ho idea of fighting tells more then you realiaze.

and yes, you are suposed to turn the other cheek. what in gods name do you loose by walking or running away a fight. and what do you gain by mouthing off back at them? street cred?. if you feel so strongly about "standing up for yourself" against a few punks with rocks, then go to town.

ask your family weather or not they want a musashi, or someone who will be around for christmas for years to come.

theres a huge difference between self defence and agravated assult. telling you this is a waste of time i think, but its always worth a shot. im not telling you to walk away next time, im asking you, please for your own safety just let it slide man. odds are its just a few punks looking for an excuse.

yours in life

oh to be 17 again.

good luck to the both of you, i really mean that. good luck.

Actually I am 15, and I was walking in the park alone.

and ultimately, I never turned back, even while they were throwing rocks.

At least one guy got out of the car, and I decided not to fight, but at the same time... I had to comment on his throwing ability

I did what you call "fighting without fighting yet coming very close to fighting" as Bruce Lee would probably say it.

And I am sure a lot of "adults" would of fought with these young kids, so just because I am young, doesn't mean I am bound to act worse then any 40 year old man walking through the park.

g2g in a hurry and looking forward to more discussion

I think you nailed it here, sir. What we have here, folks, is another punk kid that thinks he's some sort of street rambo, and will resort to baseless, and frankly laughable, insults against any one of us who does not immediately bow down to him, tell him he's more awesome than awesome, and heap praise upon him for being a jackass to a bunch of jackasses.

Fortunately, he mentioned he's 15. This means he has the capability of growth. He'll either grow out of this dumbassery naturally, by maturing, or he'll grow out of it by force, when he shoots off his mouth to another car full of morons who will delight at the opportunity to kick the ass of the guy who thinks he's the karate kid.

As for my experience, I have sufficient experience to know that it is not wise to mouth off to people at all, and to know that it is a very special kind of stupid to mouth off to people who are looking for trouble.

No, I must object. Quite Strongly!

Now I remember seeing Rambo.
I don't however remember him peddling away furiously at the prospect of being chased by a "Crazy Dog."
That kind of thing just wouldn't happen.
I now have images of Rambo “squealing like a girly” whilst being chased by a grumpy Terrier.
