Obviously I exaggerate to make my point about intent. I must have missed.

One of my favorite sayings has always been..
"I'll give you almost anything you ask me for, but don't try to TAKE anything"
Just a similar thought you brought to mind.

Play nice, practice hard, but remember, this is a MARTIAL art!
