Staving off the Millennium
Hip-Hip, Hooray!!Well done.Amazing what happens to bullies when confronted...
I ask my students if they would pick up an angry housecat with bare hands. When they say 'No!', I tell them to be the cat.
The young man was quite obviously inexperienced at fighting (and very stupid). His opponent:a) Kept completely calm, a definite warning signb) Protected his centre, without being threateningc) Kept his hands inside the yob's, so that he would have a clear shot at his headd) Went in right side forward, which throws off the balance of most people, since they are used to right-handed people
Which is why my kids are learning Tae Kwon do
Was the householder later charged with assault?
I think he passes the reasonable-man test with flying colours - most people would have exploded, and far sooner. He was probably thinking more of his undertakings as a karateka to use his skills with maximum restraint and responsibility.
