I am not addressing the OP or even the original topic, but a number of posts in this thread demonstrate the severe disconnect from the realities of fighting and physical conflict that training in the martial arts so often encourages.
No they don't, and there is enough of a percentage of people training this who can kick ass ...for real...and have watched some pretty stressful sparring in open rooms that they....like me ....don't really care anymore about this amateurish baiting.
If you can fight...and I mean seriously take and deliver a beating ....then I respect that. So can dozens of guys who are training this who deserve the same respect in kind.
You......Michael ...simply have no idea what so ever of the group of people you are addressing.
This type of drive by shooting....post is beneath you.
