Re: My forum pet peeve: "I never got in a fight - the ultimate self-defense!"

You can't talk your way out of every single situation. I'm sure that training in verbal de-escalation would be (90% of the time) an utter waste of time in rape prevention, as an example.
My pet peeve. Don't claim things for which you have no proof.

"I have been training for five minutes! Everyone shut up and listen to me!" isn't going to sway anyone. A cursory look around would confirm decades of MA experience in the posters on this forum. Yes, there are plenty of discussions on semantics, and of course some antics. If you don't like them, either the threads or responses therein, don't read them. To you, they are not valuable. To someone else, they are invaluable.
