I saw a video of Sifu Freddie Lee speaking about Chloe Bruce, and how he supports her non violent expression of the martial arts.
I checked a few videos of her, and it surprised me to see on the comments. some people saying that if she doesn't fight then she's nothing more than a circus show and that people shouldn't call her badass because it's pure show and that's why they don't like the approach that the eastern martial arts take, obviously this guys know nothing about the level of skill and practice necessary to do what she does. She can probably kick a lot of ass aswell, if necessary. Some people believe than being a fighter means being a martial artist, that takin part in violent competition makes you a badass.
I truly believe that this people who speak about fighting, and how fighting makes you a badass, and that if you don't fight you are not a martial artist, I think they know nothing about fighting, and they know nothing about the martial arts, I'm not saying that I am an expert in combat or anything like that. It's just that whenever I read or hear something like, it doesn't take much knowledge to know how lost this people are. how society has conditioned them to believe those things.
Another thing, in one of the videos I saw, she was demonstrating the use of weapons, nunchakus and some type of long staff, I'm not sure about the name of it. But her using that is far more effective than whatever combat sport those type of people think is so effective, in terms of real street fighting
