Going online as a newbie can be somewhat daunting, tho often pleasantly surprising. The extent of the “knowledge” in the virtual world is ASTOUNDING and i wonder if the Internet Creators knew/suspected what they were giving to the World.
The life story of NIKOLA TESLA for example is one RIFE with controversy(go online-do searches and see!). He was a prolific inventor and the early days of tech. were HIS TIME. LEGEND would sum him up nicely.
Online “groups” examine and dissect and study and discuss anything and everything(PARENTS PLEASE NOTE!).
A subject such as LAW drew my interest. As a Martial Arts student i had oft. been involved in discussions with other students on our relationship to LAW.As one who is studying a SELF-DEFENCE system, to me,in essence-IF U ATTACK ME…I WILL DEFEND. SIMPLE!? Well, no…not that simple after all, especially if one takes into account THE LAW.
(PLEASE NOTE THAT LAWS VARY A LIL OR A LOT-the following is based on my understanding of Australian LAW ( I AM NOT A,LAW YER btw) ….eg.check your area’s LAW not rely on mine to be ‘SAFE”.
JUST TO SHOW U WHAT UP AGAINST!?…go here:
eg 1. i have several exotic knives in my weapon collection.
2.???WHO PAYS THIS FINE cos… ain’t i DEAD???DEAD???
3.for those chemtrail disbelievers…THE AUST.GOVT HAS A WEATHER MOD.LAW…IN 1966!?
4. i was charged with this LAW because i was training on a school oval aft.hrs… wearing my NINJA gi…the JUDGE to her credit dismissed the POLICE case once allowed an explanation and m/ship perusal etc. It was the holidays and the club dojo was closed etc.
5.???WTF??? 6.&7.…been there-done that…and we haven’t even done the TOP 10...
The JUDGE want to know WHERE/WHEN/WHO etc so each case goes on MERIT so to speak…ok…but does it really matter WHERE i was attacked??? JUDGE oft. let peeps “DEFEND“themselves at HOME…but in PUBLIC arenas…a more critical approach is deemed necessary? Either way...I’VE BEEN ATTACKED.Am i supposed to do SAME??? HOW??? Is the perp. goin to wait whist i try to “SWEETTALK” or “REASON” with them? Most situations i’ve been in take lil more than 30seconds...maybe a minute tops.
IF it takes longer than that…i’m just at training and the situation is not serious.. In that serious time i have to make a choice between two-the PERP GETS IT…or I DO…whilst also taking 3? peeps into consideration- MY FAMILY/FRIENDS(-if there…) RIGHTS TO LIFE: ME and MINE: PERPS and theirs.
All this in under 60 seconds. WHILST being attacked…and then there’s the consideration of WEAPONS…were you armed? yes, officer; twice armed- ...right arm and left arm…I AM ALWAYS ARMED...WOT BOUT YOU OFFICER???
As a BUDO student- EVERYTHING IS A WEAPON…LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD/SEX AS A WEAPON…AS PAT BENATAR sang…
I have found no fulfilling answer still, though many opinions/knowledge/insight gained. THE LAW MAY HAVE WON THIS BATTLE– So i will retreat- retreat…GAIN KNOWLEDGE AND Then
I…WILL WIN THE WAR.Simple.
