    Exactly. People don't care about the minutiae.

    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:

    38 Ye have heard that it hath been said. An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: 39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on they right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also. 41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. 42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from that would borrow of thee turn not thou away. 43 Or kill, kill, kill. 44 Or buckle to the pressures of a cosmopolitan society and do some serious backpedaling. 45 Look, it was just an idea, alright? 46 God...

    I'm still waiting for somebody to show me the "Good Krav". Nobody can because it doesn't fucking exist. They'll post a video or two of teh r34L Krav. Guess what? More bullshit. Every time I see something good it's training that has been altered to the point that it looks like, you guessed it......something else other than Krav McGraw.

    It amazes me that people can fall for this unproven, dead uke, I'm too deadly for my shirt bullshit. **** everyone who trains Ku Klux Krav in the fucking ass. And their goddamn nut jugglers. **** the bitchass Israeli military too.

    End of rant.
    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.

    Isn't that how they kill chickens?

    I might be wrong but that sounds exactly the right way to bleed out properly a living thing.

    Of course, the farmers are using implements that are actually effective at cutting flesh.

    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.
