Just How Violent Are You?
Rainy and cold,
perfect for a work out,
really warm me up!
Isn’t life great?
Great work outs equal a great life!
Got a great quiz for you.
Go to this link and do the quizz,
then come back.
If you don’t like the results,
check yourself with another quiz of the same type.
See you in a while…
How’d you do?
On the first quiz I got 44%
On the second I got 36%
So average of 40% capable of killing people.
I guess that doesn’t make me too balanced.
But that’s okay.
As long as I take my meds and…
I don’t like pills.
I found the quizzes interesting.
I study the martial arts,
it’s all about killing.
I had to think long and hard
about some of the questions,
if I’m practicing a technique where I rip somebody’s head off…
isn’t that thinking about murder?
Which brings us to an interesting point.
the martial arts are,
by and large,
Of all the people I know who know martial arts,
probably one in a hundred ever got in a fight.
They all got calmer, smarter,
were in better shape,
were nicer people.
I haven’t been in a fight since high school.
that’s a long time.
So we come to the crux of it all.
It’s not wrong to be capable,
I would count that as a gained ability.
That’s why you are studying.
it’s probably wrong to act on those impulses,
and I would say that martial artists are much more capable,
but much less willing to act on impulse.
Sort of turns that bad feeling you get
from being so capable and efficient and all,
into a nice feeling.
You know martial arts,
and you can hurt people,
but because you understand the consequences of hurting people,
you are more careful not to.
and you thought you’d done badly.
want to know the art that I do,
that would probably result
in the most damage to somebody?
That would really hurt them?
that slow stuff.
Loosey goosey slow as molasses.
Much deadlier than Karate.
Maybe not as deadly as Blinding Steel,
but Blinding steel uses weapons.
want to hear about a weird fight?
The guy who got me into the Kang Duk Won,
his brother was a Hell’s Angel
who also studied Karate at the Kang Duk Won.
Don’t be so surprised,
there were a lot of bikers there.
So this brother,
T I’ll call him,
got in an argument with the head of the school,
One of T’s favorite weapons
was a primary chain off a motorcycle.
I don’t know what kind of motorcycle,
but T could wrap it around his waist
and pull it out in a fight.
He could swing it and it would wrap around,
or he could turn it 90 degrees,
and it was like an iron bar.
So T told Bob he couldn’t beat a guy
armed with a primary chain.
Bob said he could.
T said he couldn’t.
Bob told him to try it.
T pulled out the chain,
flicked it through the air.
Bob stepped back and let it pass,
and it cut him above the eye,
a thin, little slit that hardly bled.
Then Bob stepped in after the chain
and touched T’s eyeball.
T dropped the chain,
end of fight.
The funny thing here
is that T was a killer.
Bob was a martial artist.
Bob was more capable of killing,
but he knew the consequences,
and he was careful not to kill.
Time to work out a bit more.
So here’s the link to Matrix Tai Chi Chuan.
This course breaks Tai Chi down,
makes it totally understandable.
