If there's one thing I hope, it's that this sort of thing never comes to Australia. Speaking from life experience, and growing up here, this will be detrimental for a lot of young men here(In the, say, 16 to 25 age bracket. I'm 19). Having spent a year prior to my undertaking Judo, Boxing and the like, I've identified a few different types of young people attending the gym.
Average joes, actual athletes hitting up the gym for some training, power lifters and competitive body builders. All in all, generally agreeable people. However, there is one group that I bear a lot of resentment towards, a sort of guido/metro fusion. To me, it's not how they dress (even I dabble sometimes), or how they look or what they listen to or how they spend their time. There is just one instrinsic factor present in MANY youngsters fitting this label:
These men are the type who will, without any martial training, or even watching ANYTHING (UFC, professional boxing, whatever), genuinely believe that for the all of 8 hours a week they spend doing barbell curls in a squat rack, that they can hold their **** on the street/in a ring. When you combine that with our native 'bogan' (what you call rednecks, many of whom are into the whole gang violence dealie), there is going to be a lot of belligerency on tap for young Australian men if we ever have access to a UFC gym.
I (outside of exam periods) spend roughly 12 hours a week (I'm going to start adding some roadwork now that I am on my Summer vacation) just at boxing or at Judo or at BJJ, never in a gym, and never getting into trouble, I just shudder at the thought of this sort of thing being introduced here.
