    If you're ever involved in a physical altercation self defense situation and it goes to court, don't tell them or let them know in any way, shape, or form if you've got any background in the martial arts. It will probably work against you in court.

    OR better advise is get a lawyer and let them talk for you.

    I think they'll probably find out since I wear my gi 24/7 everywhere I go. Just so people know not to mess with me. But I'll consider Photonguy's sage advice. Next thing you know he's start saying its a bad idea for me to brandish my sai in the courtroom.

    If you are in a self defence situation and you utilise your martial art skills, as long as you haven't stepped over the line between self defence and retaliation you shouldn't have any problem at all. You are entitled to use reasonable force to defend yourself.

    If you are involved in a physical confrontation that is not involved in self defence you only have yourself to blame.

    True, but there is debate as to what is "reasonable force."123
