    there's a guy in a wheelchair who comes into my work pretty often who was in the paralympics. the dude's upper body is HUGE, he must do nothing but train. I think anyone who tangled with him would get torn in half like a phone book.

    Unless his lessons have to do with:

    1) Pistols

    2) Knives/mace/tasers

    Then it will be total ****. You can't do anything really if you're mobily (wtf?) imparied like that. Can't generate the power for a punch, can maneuver for a throw or lock, can't even dodge. Equalizers are your only real option.

    Greetings.

    Not to be a dick but...what happens to wheelchair people if an assailant grabs onto their push handles and takes them for a joy ride right into a wall? Or if the guy uses his brakes, what if the assailant just rocks the chair back and forth until it topples over or something? I don't know, I just don't know.

    Not to be a dick but im going to have to agree with War Phalange on this one. If i were for some reason intent on attacking a wheelchair bound person i would just flip them right out of that fucking chair first then beat them with their chair.

    Back in the 1980s or early '90s, friends of mine who had been involved in the Toronto punk scene told me that there was an older skinhead in TO who was in wheelchair and was actually still pretty physically aggressive. Apparently the guy had lost his legs in an accident, but had crazy upper body strength from working out all the time and could move around freakishly well by walking on his hands. Supposedly he actually went after people a few times by latching onto people, then attacking them.

    Might just be urban folklore though...

    LOL. Yeah, totally.

    Apparently the guy was tattooed all over as well, including some on his face and head (keep in the mind this would have been back in the 80s and before heavy tattoo coverage was as common as it is now). Total freakshow. If I remember the story right, the guy lost his legs after passing out on the railroad tracks after too much booze and pills.

    He's lucky to be alive in that case.
