Exactly. People don't care about the minutiae.

Kano's genius is still benefiting us all, Neil.

This one just happened recently.
I was leaving my school after leading the Saturday morning kids class when a lady stopped me almost 2 whole hours after the kids class had ended.
I had literally been there from 10:30 to 1:30. The lady and her son were both in the mall in the section my school is the whole time. The reason I know this is because the (VERY OVERWEIGHT) kid was running up and down the halls making all sorts of noise and being a huge distraction to the kids during class, which is from 11-11:45.
I get there at least half an hour early to stretch and warm up, and after class I usually stay and do my own training with the extra space/equipment along with a little more privacy than what I get at home, so I can focus better. I leave the gate to the school wide open the whole time I'm there so people can come in and watch, ask for information, etc. This lady stops me after I've locked up and says:
"Can you teach my son some anti-bully fighting techniques? We're really Christian so we don't believe in beating people to a pulp, but he's always getting bullied at school and I want him to be able to defend himself."
The Christian in me does the "face palm" a lot.WebRep
Quoth the Book of Matthew:

I met a Krav dude one time who claimed he could puncture people's carotid arteries with his fingers. To survive, he said, you had to hang yourself upside down.

One that really pissed me off:
"You should be my hammer. You know, help me collect debts and stuff. You'd love it. You don't have to think and you get to beat people up."
Yeah, cause bening into challenging physical activities automatically makes someone a semi-cognitive barbarian.
Hey, plenty of martial artists would be happy making some goon money on the side.
