Time to Study Kung Fu?
You’re going to realize it is time to Study Kung Fu when you see this video. It takes place on a Chicago subway, some old guy is walking along begging for change, and he runs into the wrong people. To see the video simply google ‘Elderly Man Attacked on CTA Platform (Chicago).’
Now, time for some serious consideration about what just happened. You see somebody old and helpless, almost dazed, definitely doesn’t have a clue, get the sense knocked out of him. So what is it about him that drives a bunch of young criminals to violence?
He isn’t a threat, not in any sense of the word. He’s not harming anybody, doesn’t really look like he knows what he is doing. So there is no reason, and let’s consider the criminal who did the deed to him.
The guy is young and full of himself, probably doesn’t work for a living, and doesn’t look like he wants to. He’s got his circle of friends, all as full of themselves and as criminal as him, and they are cheering him on. So here’s the question: is this what is happening to America?
Or, maybe the question should be, what are you going to do about things like this? Obviously, there are no cops around, and, just as obviously, no one comes to the old man’s defense. People just scuttle out of the way and goggle and act like stupid people at a circus.
And, here’s the point I want to make: nobody knows Kung Fu. Nobody knows Shaolin or Wing Chun or even Tai Chi Chuan. Nobody, even after the fact, goes after the kid and takes him down and holds him for the police.
Now, with America going the way it is going, people out of work, or, like this kid, not even wanting to work, there is obviously going to be violence on the streets. We see the protestors and the mobs, and we hear the rumors of food riots on their way, and do you know any kind of personal self defense? Have you ever had a martial arts class, learned a karate kata, done a few taekwondo kicks?
Maybe it’s time, you know? If the future is going to be filled with what you just saw in the subway beating, maybe it’s time to learn how to take somebody out with a good swift kick, a poke to the eyes, some, old fashioned Kung fu self defense moves. Well, while you think about whether you are going to survive the coming years, I’m going to find a class to study Kung Fu.
