Re: quickness & accuracy

Watching the violence, as well as the apathy around it, also made me feel sick (but no, I didn't stop watching). I find the fact that as martial artists we can discuss it rationally kinda disturbing actually (I'm not having a go at anyone by this).

Jean bought up an interesting question:

Can two people (or nations) consent to violent confrontation, and does that make it ok, or is it just bad period?

On the notion of allowing someone to exact violent revenge, I disagree, it's still morally unjustifiable and against the rule of law. But yes, I am human and might feel different under the wrong circumstances.

Food for thought anyway...
