Dana for what it's worth
"Here's an example:
Marcus/Stryke talked about his ability to fight a progression of variously skilled people, using a personal example. You told him you didn't think it mattered if he could do something.
I'm going to assume that Marcus didn't start out on day one being able to fight a progression of variously skilled people. He went on to stay how he learned how to do that. Instead of commenting on the method he put forward you chose to comment on Marcus'/Stryke's personal ability. "
Dana you have to take things in the context that they were said
We were talking about "WOMEN" and their abilities..I have spoken to Marcus on many occasions and I know of his abilities. I know he is highly skilled in shotokan has done some mixed MMA has fought in international tournements ......I'll be honest Anybody would have their hands full trying to fight him.I certainly wouldn't like to...............BUT what he can do is irrelevant when talking about a young women who can't even sparr properly because she can't even look at someone.I'm sure Marcus wouldn't have that problem
"Here's another example:
Chris McKaskell posted something about his belief about stare-downs being (more often than not) a ritual engaged in by two people willing to see a physical resolution. Instead of addressing the strategy, you wrote that he would he would have a problem in a physical altercation. That is out of line no matter how many cute little smiley faces you put after your comments.
You don't know Chris McKaskell and you don't have crystal ball predicting the future. Yes, you have street experience and dojo experience, and lots of other kinds of experiences - those are all important and valid but they don't matter when you start in on telling people what they can do."
Well get your folks right for a start it Was Mhosea
and here is what was said
I'm not presupposing anything about what will ensue. I'm saying that if you do this and a fight ensues, it is not self-defense, which is legal. Rather, it's fighting, which is generally illegal. Nobody's going to buy the "I was staring him down to prevent a fight" argument.
to which I said
If you think like that it won't matter .because you will lose
And I stand by that.in any altercation the law abiding guy the good guy is always at a disadvantage.because they have to react as opposed to act...............and if you are going to add layers of conditions on top of that.....awe GEE how will it look in court
..or if they see me go into my HARD Sanchin stance .they'll know that I do the deadly art of Karate and my hands are lethal weapon
...what will the Jury think
Do you think the bad guys think like that?? do you think they would be bothered by any of those reasons.
You keep addressing the people instead of what they say -- this method of posting is unproductive and distracting from the dialog and it has nothing to do with being from the U.K.
Well I think I've shown you that I haven't done that at all, I have addressed what has been said...............allbeit in my own manner.
And as to being from the UK there are two things. one is the GUYS that I am talking to are GUYS....and in the UK that is how we talk to each other.....it's the women who pussy foot around trying not to upset each others feelings..I'm sure if they were offended that they would tell me in no uncertain terms.....and the second thing you must know about folks in the UK ..is we don't take kindly to folks talking down to us like an overbearing
.If you take issue with what I had to say or the manner in which I express myself you could have PM'd me, and I would have apologised....as it is you choose to get on your high horse and talk down to me..........You won't have that problem again..I am gone ...cute smileys and all
