Since i was just writing this for fun, i guess i'll disclose the basic idea here. And its starting to get a bit too crazy for me to take it seriously and continue.
So, the story starts with a *very* long monologue by Sensei Dave - At the end of the intro, he calls up one of his students, a big...
Perfect! We can make you a street lethal black belt killing machine for the low, limited time only cost of $125 per week. This gets you a 2-3 classes, and special park training with Sensei Dave at least once a month.
Ah, i hope im not stepping on anyones toes by deliberately trying to make the...
I'm trying to write a bit of satire, because i'm quite ill and don't have anything else to do.
So! All i've been able to come up with so far is talking about being the most street lethal fighting style on the face of the planet.
Give me ideas, while i re-watch Enter The Dojo! :D
Being ambushed takes away alot of your options and doesnt give you a chance to do your thing. I misread ballen as saying sucker punch when he literally meant lucky punch. Thats my bad.
So from the ground after being put down, certain skills become more useful in that situation.
Im inclined to...
Id argue that a sucker punch or tackle or whatever sort of precludes a whole lot of things. But after you get sucker punched or tackled, i cant help but think itd be nice to have some experience, whether its through an art of a course or grabbing a friend and figuring it out or...
Striking beats grappling if you can strike before youre grappled, grappling beats striking if you can grapple before youre struck.
Besides the personal preferences of the individual, in my opinion, striking applies to a broader range of situations, especially if its the first thing youre ever...
1: Kids say all kinds of things, comparable to what youd hear at a yankees game, to each other.
2: Anything that involves hitting or grappling can be viewed as teaching people to rape.
3: Hes clutching at straws.
Fly swatter deployed, butt struck and bug busted. :)
Because i wanted to. Thats sorta like questioning why im on a MA forum when i stopped doing MA earlier this year.
The bold part? That was my point, and what i was saying. Im not sure how you missed that. :)
To reitterate, analyzing someone at the time, as i understand it, means trying to work...
It means i tried to read the book of five rings and wasnt interested. :)
Im not sure which of us youre addressing, but if youre addressing me, i guess i just dont see how the time youre being beaten senseless, stabbed, or shot is the time to try and analyze someone, as opposed to doing...
Speaking generally: Patience is really bad if you need to do something RIGHT NOW. Sitting around waiting for a perfect opportunity thats never going to come doesnt help you. Making opportunities and seeing the ones you already have is more useful.
One thing though:
If i drop a baseball bat off a tall building and it lands on someones head... not good at all.
If i drop a whip off a tall building and it lands on someones head, thats a little disconcerting.
Theyre qualified to work with those hunches, though. If you have a negative predisposition towards someones behavior (cheating on wife = sexual predator), its easy to go straight to a confirmation bias.
Which would happen drastically more efficiently if you just went and did fitness. With martial arts, if you just wanna learn ways to do stuff to people youd do well to not waste learning time on workouts. You can do that seperately, and to greater effect.
First off, his marriage is NOT YOUR PROBLEM and if she is a CONSENTING ADULT, back off. If him and his wife wind up in a divorce case you can come running along to play hero and tell everyone you suspected him of adultery.
Secondly, a sexual predator conceals their intentions until they can...
