This is the case of an older martial arts instructor, challenging a minor to a match, and Omega offering to take the young man's place. It's not just some doddering random frail elderly man minding his business being set upon by an ex-pro.

I also think a 16 yo that is trained can definitely (if he had no problem hitting old people) take care of himself just fine.
He's not small, he was just sitting in that video ;) He's an INSTRUCTOR. Someone who claims to be teh d3adly. His vid is supposedly of improv seated combat applications, and he's tossing around a younger, larger person than himself.
The guy is very old, small and out of shape. Would you be able to throw a hard punch or kick towards his old and weak body???
It's how he's selling himself, that makes this entirely appropriate. That the student is compliantly enabling the farce in the vid, doesn't take away from the fact that it's supposed to be d3adly. He's saying he's well hard, and is being treated as such.
Not insulting your parents, but you are all troll.
I am serious here, am not trying to troll.
He's a professional instructor in the MARTIAL ARTS. Have you even watched any throwdown footage of him? When has he ever needed to hulksmash someone to school them?
I don't know Omega at all, but i find it hard to believe he would be able to slam this old guy into the ground or punch him hard, if this "closet fight" would have even be a possibility.
He would be folded up for a while, toyed with, then tapped out....and Omega would sleep like a baby. It's the principle...it's principalities and such.
If such thing did happen, it would end with the old guy buckling from pain, and omega not being able to sleep for a couple of nights.
Are you sure you used to box? What if some 50 year old came in the gym, talking ****, and wanted to spar, or even bang out? If he signed the waiver, had his mouthpiece and cup, and was serious, would you refuse to accommodate him? Are you an age-ist?
What did his students ever do? He's the one challenging a minor. We should be pitying his students (barring them getting gully), not hoping for their further humiliation.
Here is a notion though, why not tell him to pick a champion from his students, someone in a fighting age\shape?
Picking a fight with an old man is worst than picking a fight with a teenager. At least the teen can learn something from it and evolve, the old guy will be just sad and miserable.
Don't challenge him no more, challenge one of his students if you want. I will support that.
Perhaps Mister Li has forgotten and needs a gentle reminder on his page?
Or he is being passive aggressive.
The hell I do this time?

So THIS is irony....nice. I guess you are one big exposed nerve than.
