    Ned,

    Hey, it's your life.

    But have you ever heard the "golden rule"?

    You seriously don't think that someone on the street's not going to capitalize on that advantage, should you leave yourself open, do you?

    Come on...be honest. You haven't really been in a self defence scenario in your life, have you? You can't possibly be this naive.

    But what do you honestly think that your opponent in the street won't do that to you?

    Why should you show them that courtesy? They are trying to kill, or at the very least, maim you.

    At the very least, if you are concerned about retaining your honour, just fight hard enough to neutralize the conflict. Don't kick him after he can't fight anymore (ie. if he's unconscious).

    But if you harbor any aspirations of keeping your life and health to their current standards, you should strongly consider fighting to win, instead of fair play.

    I'm pretty sire he's joking RP.

    At least I hope to god he is.

    I've never met a martial arts instructor (granted I've only really talked to two) that had anything bad to say about kicking someone in the balls. They're an "on" target n sparring at my school.

    I hope so too, Doc.

    But if he's not, and he honestly believes what he's saying, then I'm sure he'll be taken care of by means of natural selection.

    lol @ Poet's advice. No, it's good advice, especially when grappling! Whatever works, you know? (The visual just cracked me up.)

    I dont think Ned is joking! I think he's an idiot. You are WAY to idealistic man! In a fight, your only concern should be getting home to your family/friends. **** everything else. You wanna leave your kids orphaned? No? Then do whatever the **** it takes to win.

    Welcome to the real world.

    Heh, I just remembered I saw this on the site for a Canadian Bujinkan dojo. I'm not saying anything one way or another on that kind of training, the validity of its demonstrations, but I will note we certainly don't do this and I don't know of any other BBT instructor that recommends it:

    I've been told half jokingly that all men have an 8th degree black belt in protecting the boys. In seriousness, we have such a deeply rooted ability to absorb the blow, it is almost better to either let the person see it coming and use it to displace his hips (rather than an actual impact), or instead of a full force blow a quick and light strike that provides little energy to recieve with. Just barely catching the testacles with the toes in a kick can have a better stunning effect than a full force punch or stomp.

    Probably more useful to grab onto and use them to control the hips.

    Lol@ Ned.

    FFS he sounds like Captain Planet.

    Seriously man, giving any thought to the guy who is attacking you is stupid. He's the one trying to hurt you, go all out.
