There's nothing worse than being strong, but not strong enough.

Could not agree more! honestly it's my worst nightmare, seriously, once in awhile I have that dream where I can't save my loved ones simply because I'm not strong enough.

I guess I train for both, sometimes a tough apperance will be enough to deter someone from wanting to pick a fight with you, other times it makes it worse because only tough A-holes with something to prove will want to fight other tough-looking guys.
Even though you only have two arms you can still block with your forearms.
