Another punch video.

Thats what happens when you're in the "hand faster than the eye" range, where the attacker does not need to close the distance.

Re: Another punch video.

Oh man, that is so RUDE...

I take it this is in germany, and I've heard that there is not much tolerence for turks and other immigrant workers there. 'Course, there's a few assumptions on my part here.

My rusty german says the hitter says something like 'what is your problem, get lost'...then after hitting the guy, 'there, no problem anymore...'

Yep, I also think the guy getting slapped may have had a beer or two, he didn`t exactly look alert when he came up to see why there was a camera filming.

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"

Re: Another punch video.

Anyone can punch you when you aren't expecting it (say, in your sleep for example).

Be alert, but realize that sometimes you may just get hit. Maybe you can't live your life on constant alert, always avoiding people.

Or, the guy getting hit did not have enough manifest ki to discern the ill intent of the other in advance.

I think you read a bit too much into my post, Chris.

My mistake, then.

It does help when you quote the person you're replying to.

Re: Another punch video.

Hey all, good stuff, when I was in Saudi Arabia during the end of the gulf war(95), I observed on several occasions a Saudi Royal kick a TCN (Third Country National) in his hind quarters for not "hopping to" or "gettin to work" quick enough. I was under the impression that he was a member of the royal house of AL'Saud due to his appearing completely coiffed and well manicured, perfumed and a highly groomed being. It was culture shock, and again made me realize how god-damned good we have it here in the UNITED STATES!!!!!!!.

Re: Another punch video.

Good fast punch, the puncher did not show his intention to punch at all and all of a sudden... WHAM!and completely caught the receiver off guard. A good lesson to be learn, he he he. Surprise is a great weapon.
