    Martial Arts and the Law

    You're opinion is duly noted but it has nothing to do with reality and if you were to actually pay attention the you would soon discover that. My father and the martial arts and the law has everything to do with it because my father is an attorney. Can you say that you are an attorney? Unless...

    Martial Arts and the Law

    I agree with you grydth. You are right about that. The only problem is convincing them of that. That's often easier said than done. Perhaps if they were to do a better job in office and if they were to really pay attention and deal with the real issues instead of playing the blame game then...

    Martial Arts and the Law

    None of the claims that people have made since MJS's post are substiated in fact at all. They are the same silly claims that my father and I heard from a legal clerk several years ago when me and my father were discussing a traffic ticket that I had gotten in the State of California. The...

    Martial Arts and the Law

    Dude, It's right in front of your face. If you can't figure it out then that is your problem. Not mine. I'm even citing as to where many of these issues came about. It's really not that hard to understand at all. It's so simple that even a kindergartner could see it.

    Martial Arts and the Law

    I think that you are forgetting something that you once brought up to me a long time ago and that is about personal change. That was good advice and that is something that I have been working on for a long time. If you read some of the other posts that I have recently posted then you will...

    Martial Arts and the Law

    Chris Parker once mentioned something to me a long time ago about changing oneself and that is good advice and it is something that I have been doing for a long time. Unfortunately that advice has not translated over to the American public or to the politicians, lawyers and corporations in the...

    Martial Arts and the Law

    Sounds like you need to educate yourself on the real issues because at the moment you are not demonstrating that you have any real knowledge of this issue. Unlike you I actually live in the United States and I have to deal with the laws of the United States every day. Googling about it is not...

    Sorry to disappoint you Chris but you have no idea as to what you are talking about. MJS does however seem to understand things a lot better than most people. If you don't live in the Unites States and if you don't undertstand United States law and the way things work in the United States...

    Martial Arts and the Law

    You've got a lot of good points here and I think that you are right about people not really knowing much about the martial arts. My father who is a lawyer is one of those people who knows absolutely nothing about the martial arts. I've been trying to educate him about the subject in an attempt o...

    Martial Arts and the Law

    That's generally how I tend to look at things, but I also am thinking about what the courts and the law is going to say because that is also very important as well. My approach to crime and things like that is hard core as I'm not interested in being someone's victim at all. I have however...

    Martial Arts and the Law

    I see a lot of potential lawsuits here because no one really wants to listen to reality and what the law says about the subject. It's kind of funny that way because it only reinforces what I have been saying about lawmakers and as to how they view the martial arts. Why give them more...

    I'm not a troll so don't start that with me. What I'm sayingis simple common sense as it applies to the street. If you think that some mugger or rapist is going to stop and wait while you get into some karate stance out on the street then you are seriously deluded because that just doesn't...

    Martial Arts and the Law

    It has a lot to do with it because there are a lot of politicians out there that tend to believe what they see in the movies and as a result they like most people tend to make assumptions as to what the martial arts are really all about. It's a matter of perception just like it is with guns or...

    Martial Arts and the Law

    I have, but instead of hearing positive things I have only heard negative things from people and quite frankly I don't have time for it as I have other more important things to deal with like trying to win the lawsuit that I am currently involved with, finding a different job in a bad economy...

    Martial Arts and the Law

    I'm not talking about some clean room dojo stuff where everyone is given a few techniques to try out and if they don't work then it's ok. I'm talking about the real world the way it really is. I'm not sugarcoating it to make it more palatable to people because the real world doesn't care about...

    Martial Arts and the Law

    Fair question. I'm 40 years old and I have seen and experienced quite a lot. What I have not experienced I have studied. When you bring experience and education together then you have true wisdom and that is something that all of the martial arts masters have been aware of for centuries...

    Martial Arts and the Law

    It's got everything to do with the martial arts because the martial arts is supposed to be all about things like strength, courage, and the wisdom of knowing when to fight and when not to fight. I don't know what things were like for you when you were growing up, but for me I had no choice...

    Women factor into the picture. because they tend to expect you to protect them and to be the man. I don't know about you, but I don't know of too many women that find a coward and a wus attractive at all. Most women tend to feel that is a turn off and that is why it's important for people to...

    Both the martial arts and the dating, mating and relating fields deal with people. If you don't understand people and how they think, act, feel, and believe then you how are you going to be successful at either one. Both also require that you have a good knowledge of things like body language...

    I hope that your friend is one of the types of judges that believes in prosecuting criminals to the full extent of the law. I don't know about you, but I for one don't like the idea of criminals like The Bloods, Crips, GKB gang and Hell's Angels and others like them running around loose like I...

    Martial Arts and the Law

    I really couldn't care as to whether they do or not anymore because many people have pointed out to me on this forum that if someone like the Bloods, Crips, GKB gang or the Hell's Angels were to come up to you and demand either your money or your life most people on this forum would simply tell...

    I am trying to take responsibility for my own life and that is why I came here and it is why I am currently in a legal battle with Paypal. Everything will make sense if people will take the time to stop, think, and really listen without making any kind of assumptions. Chris one time...

    If you've ever studied half of what you claim to have studied from the seduction community then you will know that it is all about personal change and that none of the people that we have studied from is or ever will advocate that you be a wus. The whole point of what they have been teaching...

    Accountability is a two way street. I am and have been working on myself by as much as I can. One can only do so much with what they are given and with what resources that they have at their disposal. If you were to live in the area that I live in and if you had experienced what I have...

    It has everything to do with what you think and belief about yourself. If you want to use a martial example then stop and ask yourself as to how far you think you might get if you believed that it is unsafe for you to go into the dojo and train because you might get hurt or if you were to try...

    I'm just curious to know as to how many of the people that believe in Therapy also believe that the rights that you were given under the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights should be abolished.

    Martial Arts and the Law

    What you just said in the last sentence is why lawmakers perceive the martial arts as bad. They get their information from Hollywood and as far as they are concerned Hollywood is right and you are wrong. There have also been a lot of newspaper articles and other incidents that have occured...

    Martial Arts and the Law

    Lawmakers in the United States generally believe that the martial arts are bad and that anyone who is associated with the martial arts is nothing but a menace to society and that they should be locked up. That is and has been their position on the subject for a long time as they tend to believe...
