She shouldn't be afraid of him. Maybe he has been doing stuff to legitimately worry her. There are alarming statistics about men hitting women. She shouldn't through it in his face all the time but he should do something to put her at ease.

161- and you apparently know jack all about martial arts. Size and gender make no difference. I've watched and 85lb grandpa throw a 260lb linebacker using martial arts. I'm trained in assorted forms myself and have dropped two attackers- both 6 foot men, against 5 foot female me. So yeah... Respect what combat training can do and stop being sexist.

isn't there some sort of rule that you're not allowed to use the arts unless you're in a serious situation and you've warned them at least three times? I'm sure I heard that somewhere... plus, she can just take simple self defense classes, martial arts sometimes take a long time to grasp.

97: Legally? No, there is no such thing as the claim 'my hands are legally lethal weapons, man!' 101: A black belt? In which style? Most styles of karate the black belt can be gained in a year - nothing major. Also most styles don't use a coloured belt system in any case. All in all, where do you guys get your information about martial arts from? :/

I don't know about you guys but if a someone tries to attack me I'm not going to inform him of my biggest advantage. If there's one thing I've learned doing karate, it's that you stay alert and take every advantage. This bullshit about saying "I do karate" is throwing one of your advantages away, willingly. 113 - Are you sure about the black belt in a year thing? From what I've seen most people are only beginning to get the hang of it in a year, never mind being at black belt standard.

I don't know if the whole "only in self defense" thing is generic for martial arts. I bet different areas of origin have different codes they follow. As someone already pointed out, they've learned to take every advantage they can get. In ninjitsu, I believe surprise is everything, including getting your opponent without any warning. However, there are some forms (can't remember the name) that rely solely on being self defensive moves, the one I'm thinking of is where they will take a punch, lunge, or kick, grab the limb, and use your force and momentum, redirect it, and land you flat on your ass.

113, a pro boxer for example can be held more accountable for his actions if he assaulted an individual because the court likely would rule his hands lethal weapons.

Thank you 134. If a guy hit a girl once, no one would think twice about her fighting back. It should be the same both ways. Women are equals in today's society and should be held to the same standards. Hitting someone any number of times is wrong no matter your age or gender.

I didn't mean she'd have to wait until he'd hit her three times, or anyone hit her three times. I meant if she was being followed and it was clear they were going to attack if she has a martial arts skill that gives her extreme advantage I thought they had to warn them. that's what I'd heard. I completely agree if a woman or a man hits the other both have to right to defend themselves.

180 - I don't know if it's a law or not but frankly, I don't care. If I'm sure someone is about to attack me I'm not going to tell them I do karate. That would be like getting a fantastic hand in a game of poker and deciding to show that hand to the whole table.

I'm Rex, founder of the Rex Kwan Do self-defense system! After one week with me in my dojo, you'll be prepared to defend yourself with the STRENGTH of a grizzly, the reflexes of a PUMA, and the wisdom of a man.

It takes many years and a TON of dedication to become truely effective with martial arts. more often then most it gives people a false sense of security and they'll likely hurt themselves before they hurt someone else. And if she's in tae kwon do then u def. Don't have to worry OP, its a joke anywa

This will certainly get bad votes, but martial arts classes are almost as fake as pro wrestling. They pose no challenge and push no limits, and they rarely ar more than a few hours a week. There's a reason why ninjas devoted their entire lives to fighting...

Lol. Yes but I can't even remember the last time I did. Come to think of it, it's pure disagreement not anger. I've done so in the past when he was plexico and I've also grown past it. And if you're referring to the "kiss-ass" comments, that's just banter.

Reply

Oh okay. I wasn't trying to be a bitch about it. I was only pointing it out in good fun. I like to amuse myself.:P plexico days? Damn you have been on FML awhile. ^.^

Weird... that's the second time today I've seen two people post the almost the exact same comment at the same time. Either great minds think alike, or... Shit. Someone's controlling our brains. Everybody, tinfoil hats on now!

I tried replying to this earlier with EXACTLY that question. Dr. Phil ranks up there with another tv "Dr." Dr. Oz, turning women into hypochondriacs since Oprah had her show.

140- Haha yes it's starting too. Except for Big Brother. No one messes with my Big Brother. 141- True, and they always repeat the same crap over and over. I wonder why they get so many views.
