If someone threatens or maligns me without insulting my honor or integrity, I will take notice of it, but if I don't CONSIDER them to be a serious threat, won't take action. If, whether or not honor or integrity or morals is the situation, someone threatens a friend or a family member, then I will be the first one to lay hands on that man.

I sympathize completely with the Chief- he's peaceful, looking to be left alone, disapproves of these young punks these days that are more full of testosterone and hot air than brains. I can see that he will not tolerate the body or honor of a family member to be violated.

I wrestle and that helps get out some aggression I might have. I dont usually get in fights, people know I can and I dont need to prove myself or anything. However, when people just wont take no for an answer, I will fight to the death, same kind of way I wrestle.

Right, that's what I'm saying. There's always some young punk out there that wants to push you too far,

There is one thing I have been considering recently. Society today completely ostricizes violence in every way, shape and form. For example, video games, boxing, wrestling and other things like it are under constant attacks from the media and politicians. But, human beings are violent by nature. In ever single person out there, there is some sort of violence, most people just release it through a controlled means, such as wrestling or martial arts. With those controlled means under attack, I am not suprised that such violence comes out in uncontrolled ways, such as murder, rape or something like it. Im not saying that this happens in every case, just in an increasing number of cases.

A bit off topic, but its part of what is happening to young people today. They are taught that meakness is desirable, and that being assertive will make them "strike out." This may not be correct, but its the message society feeds them each and every day.

And it's wrong- people need to know how to stand up for what they believe in, and defend themselves and others. The two pieces of advice I give regularly to lifters I work with is: Never let someone stick their nose where is doesn't belong, and, if worse comes to worst, grab his right trapezius with your left hand, and hit that sumb*tch as hard as you can- don't stop, either.

Good post, +1. It IS correct. Sadly enough.

I'm with you all the way, WNxRogue- if someone consistently plays the part of the meek and mild, won't hurt a fly type, when push comes to shove they'll back down every time. I was like that once- and now I preach to every lifter that works with me not to do it.

I'll tear your heart out and send it to your mama!!!!!!!




In reality I believe it's what an individual (well most) is faced with and their environment and training that will dictate how you respond.

When I was 20 and a young grunt I'd fight you just to prove I could, and the screwed up thing is I did do that. Once with my best friend in the middle of a squad bay. He still tells his wife and kids he kicked my azz ,but he's a habitual liar
