Here in Florida I might run into a Professional football player, in that case I don't want to win. I want my lawyer to win me money in a civil suit....the average person...bigger by overweight, out of shape...martial skill of a turnip...dangers in getting hit by them driving their Cars/SUVs/Trucks in an interesection while talking on their cell phone to their overweight spouse to be sure to get two large containers of the "FatFree" ice cream!!
Sorry Roy, I guess I'm ranting.
ROTFLMAO--Archive this!

Build a cabin, build a canoe, and suddenly have the skills to make your way out of the forest. Well probably not, but some might manage to do better with the matches than without and the same is true for Aikido.
Yup. Thanks, Gene.
