Heh, chill guys. He obviously didn't do it. "I broke his arm maybe I dunno." Right. Sure thing buddy.

I took Shorenryu Karate for a very brief period of time. I could never memorize the katas for some reason (bad memory as a lil kid). I guess I just didn't care, too. I kinda regret that now because I want to take up a martial art again (probably not Shorenryu and probably not at a McDojo)

Boxing is awesome! I have training at my university 2-3 days a week for only $3 a week! Is there anyone in the Northridge, CA area that has gear and wants to spar?

realising of course that thats assault and battery, and GBH. dude, self defence or not, you would have been in court over that.

i was threatened by a guy with a knife in my old school, and knocking it from his hand and pressing him to a wall while i shouted for help, could have gotten me arrested for assault (i was told that by the police who had to be called in to investigate... weapons = biiiiig trouble). they said that if the guy pressed charges i could be brought up on it, whether it was self defence or not.

so, im calling bull**** on your post, on the grounds that 1. if you did break it, you would know, because you would feel that you had done it, its very hard to break someones arm without actual intent (in a fight situation). not to mention, if you had harmed him so severely that he had to go to hospital, the police would have had to investigate purely out of practice.

Hmm, I know that in my state, by law, I have to inform you that I am an "expert" in Tae Kwon Do, and even if I just restrain you, I'm liable for damage to your person in any way shape or form because I know more about fighting than you do. Ignorant law? Probably. I was told by a cop that it would be better to shoot someone in self defense, legally, but to make sure I shot to kill. Survivors tend to sue succesfully.

Cuc - i think thats the same here, but ive never been actually told to do that. however, it would make sense to warn someone "im proficient in martial arts, and i can cause you severe harm if you persist".

1. that will either deter or provoke them (but they were gonna do it anyway, so theres nothing really to lose) into action.
2. if they were hospitalised for attacking you, and then tried to press charges for GBH, you would probably get a lesser sentance if the judicary are aware that you actually made your defensive intents completely clear to the assailant, and he attacked anyway.

This is one of things that makes me happy to live in Estonia.
I wodnt have to warn no one that "Im going to proteck my self with sevear violence and cause posible injuris."
I i would breake a persons hand in self defence the oppsing side dosnt sue that easely asy you peapole do.
Id porbably be sued when i would rip his hand of ore kill him. (ore woumd his pride :))
Al though riping a hand of is very very difficult but not impossible (i like to think enithing is possible)
breaking someones bones isnt that hard to do as you might think. Human is cuite fragile.

Gir - It is the same here, bouncers can even lose their job for doing it, which kinda contradicts that profession really.

hmm... bouncers cant
if someone decides to touch them, they can (are allowed to, and they pretty much can) beat the **** out of that person to within an inch of his/her life; and i include her, because i have seen it happen. So girls, dont think you can mouth off to bouncers and not get hit, because ive seen it happen. The worst that will happen is the bouncer will be fired from the place that hired him

i did Karate about 9 years ago, didnt get very far, its a crappy martial art.
i wanna learn Tae Kwon Do though because it helps with tricking technique

PS isnt Wushu a martial art dance, and not weaponry, since the attacks dont hit anyone, its all acted out?

gir, dont warn them, if they are fighting you for no reason, especially as fights start for no reason 99% of the time, just....check them o_O

but thats because in wushu its practiced not to hit, im sure however, if you tried to hit someone using a wushu form, you could kick the crap out of them.

Are you serious? A guy could be throwing a bunch of blows at me, I throw a punch and damage something, so now I'm the one in trouble? That is such a bull**** system. I guess that mkaes sense why there are a lot of manuevers to get yourself out of trouble instead of dealing damage.

Yes, they can sue for wrongful death, however, you are the only one left to tell the story. If that story equals "trespassing + self defense = dead tresspasser" then no legal offense in the world will get you.

I've studied:

TKD - 5 years (Black Belt 1st Dan)
Muay Thai Kickboxing (3 years)
Submission fighting and shoot wrestling (4 years)
Pro Wrestling (2 years)

so i guess i'd describe my style as mixed martial arts (MMA).

Oh and since this is a martial arts thread i guess ill rant a little about TKD.

Great sport, useless as a practical defense martial art. I think the guys at Bullshido said it best when describing TKD - "if you ever need to kick a man off a horse, TKD is teh win."

I'd noticed that TKD exponents are very vulnerable up close and have a very limited effective range - since throws and punches aren't the main focus of the art, it limits the attacking range to full leg extention distance. Compared to say someone who practices a less "specialised" and more well rounded art such as silat, karate or kenpo, TKD seems to be far less practical from a street defense point of view.

Sure its good for keeping distance and im not disputing it as a legit martial art but in a real fight, there would be no situation in which a spinning hook kick or an axe kick would be useful. Someone with an amateur wrestling background would excel because of their ground fighting abilities since most street fights end up on the ground. So based on this i took up other martial arts to complement TKD to round things out.

Though it could just be that i unknowingly studied TKD at a McDojang.

Just a little question to throw up in here...Why study martial arts?

I forget why my paretns signed me up for karate, but as for Tai Chi, I becamse very interested about the idea of chi and it's possibilties, so I try to learn how to help myself in any situation, be it fighting or warming up my feet.
