    Minor point.

    Here in the UK, the Law tends to regard any assault with punches by a professional boxer, as "assault with a deadly weapon". Well, that's the reading from past court reports in print.

    Gary Delaney ex-LHW and HW boxer is in prison. He was a doorman who punched a customer, who fell over and banged his Head on the pavement and died. The same occured with Kostas Petrou ex-MW. The Law takes a dim view and expects higher standards and discipline from boxers.

    Otherwise, the OP is correct, it's myth etc.

    Yes, I thought he would. How does that make me a "dick"?

    Stop posting.
    For your own mental health, you should give this a rest. I'm here. If you want to to troll, so will I. If you want to speak seriously, so will I.

    It makes you a dumbass. "Dick" is your red herring.
    You're also being an asshole by shitting up the place.

    Oh, give me a break Stuart fucking Smalley.
    You said you wanted to know what was different about the "old" Bullshido.
    So i am serious when i say you should lurk more and post less.
    You don't even train, why do you even post here?
    Last i checked, this isn't a support group for dumbfucks like yourself.

    ...and you lecturing on mental health?

    Quote from a friend of a friend (some sort of Australian karateka as I understand it):

    "I am legally required to inform my attackers that I have a black belt before I'm allowed to defend myself."

    In some countries and locales, this may be true; I've only seen half of the world LOL.

    I can certainly see a link to licenses and professional boxing. I also would suspect that its are much more metaphorical in nature then ever being literal. Like prefight smack talk. I know for one I would hate to tussel with a turn of the century bare-knuckle boxer.

    Weird, that's what I said to you and your response was to whine about being a lazy dumbass.

    Just something to think about while you guys preach at me.
    I'll be too busy laughing to preach.

    "Being a dick to a noob" is what I got an infraction for lol. I figured you might already know this.

    You're also being an asshole by shitting up the place.
    Says the guy that started trolling me out of nowhere right after I got done talking about trying to take this site more seriously. You follow me into every thread I post in to troll me and then complain about my shitposting. Try not to choke on the irony.

    Oh, give me a break Stuart fucking Smalley.
    You said you wanted to know what was different about the "old" Bullshido.
    So i am serious when i say you should lurk more and post less.
    Until you tried to take another shot at me in Sirc's tech thread, I'm pretty sure i was only posting in two threads with any kind of regularity.

    You don't even train, why do you even post here?;
    So you didn't even read what I was saying in the gong sau thread before you started trolling. Even though I find this question pretty hypocritical coming from someone that admits they barely train, I will answer if you are truly interested.

    Last i checked, this isn't a support group for dumbfucks like yourself.

    ...and you lecturing on mental health?
    Hahahahahahahahaaaaaaa!!!!!
    Remember kids, if your posts don't end in schoolyard name calling and a "no you" joke you're not doing it right.

    I know contestants need to be SACB licensed in NJ, what license does an MMA trainer need? Just curious.

It’s appalling!
    Would you mind naming names?
