    what a load of crap

    they have no context. Blonde kid got off easy. If there was no crowd the beating would have been worse not better. That was not showing off.
    you could be right about the audience limiting the damage.. the showing off can be to ones self can it not?

    Exactly why should "martial artists hold themselves to a higher standard" ? What kind of hippie BS is this? People should hold themselves to a higher standard, whether or not they train in martial arts.

    I can't stand the mysticism of "a true martial artist". I hate that ****.

    Ken,
    I am as conservative as anybody you have ever met. You are correct in saying everybody should hold themselves to a higher standard. My concern is not for everyone...it is for matial artsits. I do not have the energy to care for how the knitting community is representing itself, and I think it is obvious how the surfing community is representing itself. I do care about how the martial arts community is represented.

    Incidentally,
    "People should hold themselves to a higher standard, whether or not they train in martial arts" Is as much "hippie bullshit" as anyting I've ever heard. *wink*
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    Way to creatively edit my post Mididoctors. I was saying they have no CONTEXT that was kinda the key word in that sentence.


    Let me try and relate it to the British Ilses. If I went to a Manchester United game and ranted on and on about what a ***** sport soccer(football) is and the hooligans inevitably kicked my ass. Would you be sticking up for me?

    There's one more thing I don't get here - why the indignation?
    Aparently the kid got what was coming to him, and while it may have been illegal, I wouldn't think it was immoral. Someone who purposefully disrupts a sporting event, refuuses to stop when asked nicely, and mouths off SHOULD get a beating. Why the **** not?
    You say what about my rice?

    This caused a manga-hero style revelation in me.

    My training is....INADEQUETE!


    I AM NOT TRAINED FOR PUNCHING WHILE IN THE OCEAN BEING HIT BY GIGANTIC WAVES!!!


    I must seek out an elderly Chinese surfer in order to remedy this gap!
