Truly hardcore thugs will not practice Martial Arts, a true Hardcore thug would have just shot me at the entrance door. A lot of people who train in Martial Arts are not true hardcore thugs, they just like to play games with no weapons, and when weapons do get involved, they are afraid of dealing with guns. A lot of people out there who practice Martial Arts or combat sports, almost live in a fantasy land thinking that guns don't exist, and when one gets pulled out on them, they shit in their pants. People who train for reality when it comes to firearms are usually soldiers, Police, the hardcore thug, the gangbangers, and the armed citizens. Much of the practitioners of the "Martial Arts" are stuck in the childhood Power Rangers phase of lets fight, but not really fight, lets play fight and pretend that real violence does not exist. Let's compete for trophies and belts to boost our ego.
Standing My Ground
Through life experiences, I will never allow people to bully me ever again, I will stand up for myself when I feel it is necessary, that's what being a Martial Artist is all about. I've ignored situations very much in the past and I know from experience, that is not the Way. In my eyes, a real man of Kung Fu is not a pushover, if he is a pushover, it signifies a lack of inner confidence and development. Gracie does not practice Kung Fu, he practices something else. My channel is teaching Kung Fu, his channel is teaching something else, comparing me to him is comparing apples with oranges, there is no comparison. And, by the way, since learning the Martial Arts, I have not been in a "real" fight on the streets, in the cage, or in the ring. I am a man of peace, but if you disturb my peace and I am justified by law to stand my ground, I will.
Prepared for Death
I've had many Martial Art practitioners and even School owners stop by my school before and I've only been open for about 5 years, the longer I am open, one day, somebody might pay me a visit with the wrong intentions, and I must always be prepared for that. Like a Police Officer who goes on duty, always in the back of his mind, knowing that he might not come back home from work one day.
