My students have helped people, and a core value in my school is always have your friends back.....Gints  would you be there if I needed help and you were there?  .[/b]

Prof Bono, I'd help you.  If I'm not there, I'd get there as soon as possible.  Gints

Hey Allen, I see you're up around the NY area? Where at? We could hit the city and train a bit.

Well said, sir  :)

I can relate whole-heartedly.

Respectfully,

Sifu Pat "Kapono" Campbell
Chief Instructor/5th Degree


I was always told there are three sides to every story, his, hers, and the truth.  Somewhere in both stories lies the truth.

Being in Law Enforcement one of the things especialy hear in California is that they tell people not to get involved and be a good wittness. Granted someone should have at least called the conductor and reported the incident while it was happening.  I don't agree that all people are scared to act, I think more scared of getting sued because of the action they take.  Even in Law Enforcement you are always second guessed for the actions you take and the reason why is so the city will not get sued.

On of the deadliest calls for Law Enforcement is the call for Domestic Violence.  There are a number of officers who have lost there lives attempting to stop the husband from killing his wife only to be shot by the wife for arresting her husband.

I think there is a different way people with some kind of Martial Arts background or military background think, and that would be to react to do something and not think about being sued.

The average person I think does think about being sued and about getting killed.

It is sad that we have to question what will happen to me if I do the right thing.

 

I agree with brother David.  
As being a former law enforcement officer and a Marine, I would have jumped in and stopped this guy, regardless.  There were incidents in Vietnam and as a law enforcement officer that I had to react without consciously attempting to dissimilate information to my brain.  There always more than what is printed in the media for the general public to have their own opinions and discussions.  Law enforcements based their findings on witnesses, evidence, and statements from persons that are involved.  I have reacted to situation that I could have been seriously injured or kill.  There is an old saying ‚ÄúLive and Let Learn.‚Äù

The truth is never one sided.

Great discussion though.

I believe the truth sometimes is one sided.....if one person lies and the other doesn't .....there you go....just like it takes two to make an argument.....one person can argue while another tries to calm them down......in this case, lets just say some are brave some are not....lets not point at who is who....most are not in real life. 
I as many of you know try to look at things at face value, it said what it said, lets assume it is true, why try to guess we don't know......  If someone tells me something I trust it to be true unless I have a real reason not to....
 
no more personal attacks and especially about educational levels etc..remember this is a diverse group with many highly educated by schooling and many by the street.........some by both........but in life many people are not highly educated in either.....
and Gints I know you would.....thanks ........
.............Peace.....

Hi All,
Thank you for letting me join.  I am a martial arts wanna be.....I have studied Korean Styles for a while but I know I have a long way to go.  I have a black belt in Tang Soo Do.  Honestly, I don't know much about your style but would like to know more.

I orginally found your forum because I was searching for the downloads for Fight Quest.  I understand they'll have an episode on your style which I'm looking forward to.

Best Regards,

Here's a video of another situation.  Even *I* don't know what to say.  This is carried over from the Inayan Eskrima forum.

That was sickening. And the bystanders!??? Why the #%#@ was that guy just standing there filming??? And the people that did try to "help out" assuming you can call it that....what the hell were they doing!? That was the most pathetic attempt at pulling someone off someone I've ever seen. That guy wasn't even that wild to intimidate bystanders...one person grabs the arm with the knife, someone else chokes the $$#% out of him. End of story...

god that made me sick.
