REFLECTIONS IN CONFLICT

Postby Van Canna » Mon Jun 14, 1999 12:58 am

And so you are a well conditioned _well trained Uechi-Ka ; smug in your "proficiency" from unquestionable lineage ; you worship your sensei who says you are a child of "mushin"!

You have never been in a real fight but you are pretty good at imagining one with alien life forms !

You also espouse compassion and , perhaps ,even that all violence ,including the violence of self defense , is morally repugnant !

You are antigun yet practice kobudo with an array of deadly martial arts weapons which you are quick to rationalize !

You are told by the pacifists of this world and by the enlightened masters that lots of people end up dead because by using " inefficient " karate moves or by pulling a gun in a dreadful assault , one escalates the violence !


And so in the moments of quiet introspection , as you project the possibility of violent criminal attack__ Which advice , which instinct will you follow ? What will really save your hide , you wonder ? What course of action is more likely to cost your life or the lives of your loved ones ? Are you really better off doing nothing ? Or is using a weapon the smarter thing to do ? And , if so , what weapons work best ?

If you have formed strong convictions about responding with effective countervailing force ; having made that decision _you will need to skillfully and efficiently implement it , along with the tactics , the determination and the physical command !

Peace ,

REFLECTIONS IN CONFLICT

Van sensei: The Castanet family has reviewed the subject at hand and we have collectively agreed to trust our instincts, never go to the 'second crime scene' and never give up without a fight, whatever the consequences.

The good works by Debecker, Ayoob, Lott...... have made reality very clear. I am the only karateka in the family but we are all capable of pulling the trigger if necessary. That probably sounds scary to many people who have teenagers in the house, but I have faith in my two kids upbringing.

Any comments out there?

Actually, I've become very fond of the 230 grain JHP 45 ACP. Superior momentum.
