Can anybody remember that old Jonny Cash song 'coward of the county'?
'walk away from trouble if you can'
Deadly once quoted, better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6, mate if you were tried by 12 you would lose, no matter how good you think you are.
I was brought up in a christian home where turn the other cheek was practiced, due to this i was an easy target, i'd take my beatings and go about my business, i had my nose broken 3 times before the age of 12, i was never taught to fight and never did, i became extremly reserved and withdrawn.
On my first day of seconary school, word got around i was an easy target, i was conrnered in an ally behind the school by a couple of plebs looking to mess me up for fun, i descided not to turn the other cheek this time and beat the crap out of them, i held nothing back, the empowerment of the aggression led me to become a bully for a couple of years until i saw the light.
I fear that some of you here are falling into the well subscribe catagory of someone who has done some martial arts training, then finding that fighting is not socially acceptable, have to find ways of justifying its need in modern society. No offence, but toe to toe fighting is a mugs game....and dangerous, there is always a better alternative.
i would rather go to court and be tried for manslaughter by 12 people than be carried to my grave by 6 !!

Some counties especialy those that have been war torn recently breed a kind of person where life is seen as cheap - some of these people who grew up (no fault of their own) in war torn regions then travel and settle around the world - in sierra leon for instance the "west side boys" would go to a village, round up all the children, give them guns and tell them to kill there own parents, if they didn't they would be killed too - then these children after having killed their relitives were then taken away to be trained as guerillas, they had no choice and nowhere to run back to because they had no more family - now that war was over a long time ago and those kids have grown up - who knows where they are now all fucked up in the head - maybe living round the corner from you now
Do you think teaching martial arts to a violent 10 - 18 year old will make them more controlled
Do you think teaching martial arts to a violent 10 - 18 year old will make them more controlled, of course not, they will be just as violent but with the ability to infict more focused and concentrated abuse.
Teach your kids to love by showing them love, teach them respect by respecting them, teach them empathy by empathising with them, be considerate to them and they will know how to be considerate to others
schools currently only recomend telling teacher

I don't doubt that Deadly could kick my butt if we got in a fight,
