    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Have you ever misused/abused your skills?

    Hi guys, I'm new to Bullshido.net. I've already been to Newbietown and got a lot of my questions answered, but this one I am really curious about:

    Have any of you ever abused/misused your martial arts skill? Like, go into a bar and start trouble just so you can kick someone's butt? Or just provoke someone in general?

    How far do you have to be pushed to whip out the ol' MA training?

    How often have you actually had to use your martial art, and which martial art did you use?

    Thanks for your answers.

    In the 7 or so years since I started learning how to fight, I've never EVER misused my skills.

    No, its not OK to tell your rolling partner, "Man, you smell good".
    Was that your question?

    Your mother should limit your TV time in the summer.

    All a girl has to do is ask nicely. Unless she is smokin' hot, then she only has to look at me wrong.

    Wait...are we talking about the same thing?

    How often have you actually had to use your martial art, and which martial art did you use?
    There was this one time that some dude called another dude a ****** dude, and I took offense to it because ****** is a hurtful word, so I said "Dude, you need to apologise NOW!"
    Dude said, "**** you Dude"
    I said "Oh yeah? Well **** YOU....dude"
    Dude said "No asshole...**** YOU"
    This went on for a few hours, because we were in a parking lot and I didnt want to get hurt by falling on the asphalt.
    So I chi blasted him.

    After he woke up he said "Dude......."

    Thanks for your answers.
    Any time.

    Never been in a fight in the three years I've been training. Before that I was in too many fights. But as I started training, my confidence went up, I got less scared when faced with punks, and my need to "prove myself" to drunk loud mouths by punching them in the face went down to zero.

    I would never abuse my training by starting a fight or getting into a fight without an extremely valid reason, like unless my life depended on it or I had to help out a friend or family member. (I dabble in TKD and muay thai.) I think starting a fight would be extremely disrespectful to one's club and instructors. It's not like martial arts needs any more bad publicity.

    I once (accidentally) kicked my brother in the nuts. I was training Han Moo Do back then, so I guess I was abusing my skills.
    Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.

    I once used TKD in the middle of an A Level History exam. I only got a 'D'.

    Only once.

    I remember the day vividly. I was in prison at the time- framed for murder- and I was blindfolded, escorted out into a van and driven to a factory out in the country. Three CIA operatives grilled me for hours, trying to get me to cooperate with some secret mission- but I would have no part in it. But then they threw a set of poloroids on the table in front of me that hit me like an A-Bomb.
    He was alive. My nemesis, Maxwell Shitpower, whom I had tracked down from country to country for 10 years working for the FBI...was alive. The man who had killed my whole family, even my ferret. They told me he had died in a horrific helicopter crash, but always I knew in my heart he somehow survived.

    He was alive...and I would have my revenge.

    I paid money for what little martialism I have, so I shall use it as I wish. I do not abuse my powers because they're mine to dictate what the terms of useage are.

    I greet my friends with collar chokes, for example, just to keep them on their toes. I draw on their faces with marker if they don't escape in time.

    They're my collar chokes and I'll do what I want with them!
