How many of you think you would do something (fight) if you ever found yourself in a terrorist situation? In Jets, Trains, Buses, buildings or wherever. Especially if professionals could not neutralize the threat. (on a jet) I ask because, sometimes I think back to 911, and wonder why a plane full of hundreds of people did very little to counter the actions of very few individuals who were poorly armed. I realize I was not there and that I should be sensative to that situation, but at the same time understanding "why" could help arm people with the knowledge needed to stop these things from happening in the future. Some of us are teachers in the martial arts, and in the unfortunate event that something like 911 happens again, we should be prepared to defend our lives and the lives of our loved ones. If we are not up there than one of our students might be, and sometimes SWAT or the SEALs just cant be there. We as MARTIAL artists train to defend ourselves. I'll start. I would do something to fight, even if my life was on the line. Better me and a few others than the whole plane and whatever target the terrorists have in mind. I realize this is a tough subject and answers could vary depending on the situation. For the sake of the conversation we will assume that if you dont do anything everyone will perish, if you do something, you have a chance. So what would you do?
