Quote: one minute one is 'precluding' a possible violent attack on the street...the next instance could be popping your wife in the mouth for yelling about you being out too late.
Iím sorry but that isnít even a logical progression. One is a violent attack and the other is an argument. Unless there is a history of violence of the wife on the husband there should be no need for a pre-emptive strike. Even if there is a history, one does not go straight to violence. Using Leoís progression levels of self defense from a current thread:
1) Common sense 2) Avoidance 3) Awareness 4) Humour/light heartedness 5) Rapport creation 6) Verbal SD 7) Fence 8) Escape 9) Pre-emptive strike 10) Physical self-defense
I understand what you mean, but I donít agree with no pre-emptive strikes.
We should all take ourselves seriously...and then crumple that image up and toss it out the window.
