Bravo sir!

I did not want my kids going through school with the problems I had due to bullies. If one person in the school was getting beat on or thrown in the mud, it was likely me.

I put both kids in a small religious private school and both started Karate at about age 6.

Word goes around and all but the craziest kid will leave a kid who knows self defense alone.

I too am participating in the sport and have to admit that it is the most fun I have ever had. I really enjoy the sparring. I sparred at a big Black Belt test a week ago and still hurt, although not in near as many places. (^;

Oh yea, now I also teach Karate at their school.

Knowing self defense is ALWAYS a good thing ;)

Here’s a side note people often never consider. The children in the liberal 60s, when this bs began, and since, were/have been taught pacifism at all costs.

Those kids are now (and have been a while now) heading up significant portions of our military, all of the education system and hold most of the current political offices.

Rhetorical Question 1: Is it a surprise that they continue the to embrace pacifism at all costs, never having been taught an alternative?

Rhetorical Question 2: Is it a surprise that the aggressor nations/philosophies of the world are rapidly taking over?

My point: The kid that grows up on a diet of pussification/pacifism becomes the man/woman cowering and appeasing to the Irans and Obamas of the world. They were taught you were ‘supposed’ to.
