    Something that Im sure most of you have noticed is that A LOT of fights start with a push. My recommendation for you as martial arts practitioners is to do a lot of training off of a push. To me if someone is willing to push me im sure they will also be willing to punch me so I usually just go to town immediately at the first push. I dont wait for them to swing. Maybe you all have other ideas as to what you focus on in your "self defense" training.

    Fight first.

    In Canada (I'm not too sure about the US penal code), in order for it to be self defense, one does not have to be struck first.

    If a person even percieves an attack and has reasonable and probable grounds to believe that, they can respond with physical force in order to neutralize the situation.

    Sometimes, the best defense is a good offense.

    That's repugnant. You guys have the second amendment in your constitution, but you guys have laws that place the onus on the victim in a self defence scenario? Unbelievable.

    You can defend yourself in the US. Many of the statutes I have looked at put you in a position of using the same level of force that is being used against you. You can figure what that means. If they throw a rock, you obviously cannot throw a grenade, but the ability to defend yourself and others is there.

    You also certainly do have the right to use lethal force against another if you are in fear for your life or that of another and lethal force is being used against you or you believe it is about to be.

    We should all read our local state and federal laws on this subject. They can be murky but they are usable.

    I know that they are interpreted differently based on who is talking, but I will always choose to defend my actions in court or to the officer on the scene because I choose to survive.

    What if you accidently drop someone on thier head insted of thier back?
    And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

    If someone pushes you, stab them repeatedly in the neck, face, and abdomen. With a dirty used sharpened chopstick.

    We have an interestring law here in Georgia. It's called the "opprobrious language" law. Basically, it allows you to justifiably inflict simple battery on a person if they talk enough smack to you.
