Yeah, right, and wait ’till my woman got raped or murdered to have the legal right to do something about it, bla, bla, bla…

Sorry, but I rather get real than dream in a lawful and peaceful perfect world. That’s not where I live.

Here in the States anyway…thats known as assault[/quote:1dumjpa0]

Well in the States that may be truth, but in Combatives that’s known as surviving with the correct mindset.

Just as a reminder, Jim Grover’s Combative Principles next:

1. Final confirmation of an assault will generally come in the form of injury to you (ed note:[i:1dumjpa0]or your loved ones[/i:1dumjpa0]). Be alert and stay focused.

2. Don’t watch your opponent’s eyes, they can’t hurt you. Focus on the real danger: his hands, which can hit, hold weapons, etc.

3. Disarming doesn’t necessarily mean taking the weapon away from a person. You can disarm him by making it impossible for him to use the weapon through injury or unconsciousness.

4. Martial arts is something you do [i:1dumjpa0]with[/i:1dumjpa0] somebody. Combatives is something you do [i:1dumjpa0]to[/i:1dumjpa0] somebody, or [i:1dumjpa0]on[/i:1dumjpa0] somebody.

5. You will most likely be attacked when the conditions most favor your attacker and least favor you.

6. Understand the concept of branching: if a technique is not working, go immediately to another one instead of trying the same thing over and over again.

7. In a fight, maintain the combative attitude. Any fight is 10% technique and 90% attitude. The superior combative mindset will win.

8. Keep it simple; if a technique can’t be performed while under the physiological effects of imminent danger, it is useless.

9. A fight is, by it’s very nature, a struggle. Your techniques must be effective against an opponent who will be fighting and struggling against you every step of the way.

… and I would ad others like: “do onto others what they want to do onto you, but do it FIRST”.

There are many more combative principles you may find in Applegate’s “Kill or Get Killed”, Fairbairn’s “Get Tough”, Biddle’s “Do or Die”, and many other works on the subject.

I understand must people want to be Law obedient abid citizens, but where’s the use of law if I’m dead?

As Geoff Thompson and others agree: “Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6”
