    [FONT= ]SALT LAKE CITY — There are times in our lives when we know we need to quit while we're ahead. There's usually a breaking point when we have to throw in the towel, apologize all those who witnessed the failure and then move on with your life.[/FONT]
    [FONT= ]During a martial arts demo a man reached that point when he injured a young child, but he just powered through and turned bad to worse. (Video was apparently taken somewhere in Scotland and then reported in an article in SLC).

    Maybe there is more information elsewhere because the video within the article didn't work for me...

    There is a thread called a demo gone wrong. I do believe it is the same video you are talking about. It is on youtube. Yes pretty bad.
