First of all, Id suggest your GF/Wife study martial arts and get some pepper spray, in case you are not around. If you are present and some one insults her verbally, you insult him and talk **** back, then if he attacks you, its ok to kick his ass in self defense. There is a variety of styles that can be effectice, such as Shotokan Karate, Krav Maga, and various forms of Kung Fu, (I take Shou Shu and its effective), anyway, good luck.
I have a feeling this will be entertained and give me something to do for the next few days.
lol Ive read that thread already. Its by a disgruntled former student who allegedly went to the stockton school in the 80's. By the way, he claimed he only went up 3 belt levels in 2 years, thats pathetic. He also claimed later in the thread that he thought he was supposed to just stand in a horse stance during a fight, proving he learned nothing. Either he had a terrible instructor, or he was a terrible student, or his story is totally fabricated.
Let me guess, you have probably never been to a Shou Shu school, or checked out a class. You just read a story from a supposed ex student, maybe saw a demo vid on youtube (those are simulated demonstrations, not real fights) and you determined that its a fake martial art, right? I have been taking classes for nearly a year, there is nothing fake about the actual self defense applications of Shou Shu, that I have experienced. I have had to use it to defend myself already and it has worked for me so far. Ive had a great experience with it.
A wild Shuo Shu nutrider appears!
PS: Whoever tagged this thread with "xxiv punches like a girl" just made me chortle. Because I do. OW MY NAIL.
