    What are your thoughts on Rampage Jackson's reckless driving?

    All I'm saying is that he gives the art a bad reputation, and should probably be reprimanded in some way, that is if anyone cares enough about the reputation of the art.
    Why?

    Was it him?
    Was it his son?
    Was the car stolen.

    It does matter what happened.
    If she cursed him quietly and he was louder who is wrong?
    What if she just broke up with him?
    What if she stole something?
    What if he was wrong?


    People have emotions and nothing makes it a guarantee how they will react. To blame an entire art, like you just did, is just as immature.

    But you just don't get it, IIF! MA teachers are supposed to be impeccable at all times.

    Or a pissed off former student, or a pissed off ex-lover/girlfriend/wife, or any other relation that might have some reason to have a grudge against this guy.

    If there's no proof of this accusation then it's just an unfounded accusation (and may open the accuser up to some sort of civil litigation).

    I guess I just expect a martial arts master to have more self control than to rant on a perfect stranger (which I'm sure she was) in the middle of a public place. I was always under the impression that self-control was essential to mastering arts such as Kung Fu, and especially Tai Chi.

    People piss me off all the time, and I do get upset, but I have never shown my ass like that to someone, just because they might have cut in line, or made a remark that I didn't like.

    I'm not a master of any martial art, nor do I consider myself a *****, or pacifist. I do feel that I have enough respect for myself, and others around me, that I don't have to raise my voice and scream obscenities at a complete stranger, especially a woman, just because they rubbed me the wrong way.

    He was being a bully, and that is what really irked me about the situation.

    My wife and I both witnessed the event, along with the entire staff, and I'm sure the victim would also testify to the situation if a slander charge were to ever arise. Not to mention surveillance footage of the register and exterior of the building.

    Shouldn't they be a shining example of what their discipline is founded on? Everyone around was in shock at how loud and mean he was being.

    I guess you would have had to witness the situation to really understand my disgust.

    Victim? Was she stabbed? Shot? Did he dump her in the dumpster round the back?

    On what grounds do you base the fact she was a stranger to the man?

    Whos testifying about what?

    Survelience footage?

    God damn you get excited......

    I was just responding to the civil litigation comment. I'm not trying to sabotage his business, I just feel like his peers should be made aware of his actions.

    And yes, I believe she was a victim of a bully. If you witnessed the encounter, I'm sure you would agree. I'm sorry that I didn't whip out my phone and record the event, I was trying to check out. If she wasn't a victim, why did the security officer approach him?

    Also, he was trying to provoke her, knowing full well that he could destroy anyone in the building if he wanted to. He was blatantly abusing his power as an MA master, which I felt was unacceptable.
