I knew a Karateka who told me that he had registered his hands as deadly weapons. I told him he was lying. He got in my face and said, "You wanna bet.", and he threw a punch at my face, I blocked it and I went down low sweeping his legs and siat on top of him. Then I said, "See you were lying. There is no such thing."

Oh, yeah, they always end up making fools of themselves sometime. You would think that because he was a Martial Artist, he would be humble about his abilities. But I guess he really didn't have anything to be humble about.

Yeah, you make a good point. I am pretty humble myself. It sucks going out to the bars, and seeing people from your school, and they start talking loudly about how "he is in my TKD schoo, he's a black belt," and on and on. I just think, "Oh, shut it, will ya!" After that, I try to make a retreat before someone decides to step up.

I had an incident at the jail here recently like this. I recognized one of the inmates as someone who worked out where I did at one time. Well, he started asking me about if I was still working out or not, and I got up close to try to keep him from getting to loud about it. Boy, what a stink that could cause!

Right. It's a myth. As a black belt, however, you may need to explain yourself more if you are arrested after an altercation. For example, you would have to explain why you used a certain technique as opposed to another in your repertoire that may have caused less injury.

I don't think that this is right. Decisions in the midst of a fight should be happen so fast that it borders on instinct, because it is instinct mostly. I don't think that a col would worry about which technique you used to defend yourself with.

As an LEO, I would concern myself with the levels of force used, and then the justifications of those force levels. If a trained puncher hits someone and has better effect than a non-trained puncher, then no big deal. It doesn't change the need for a response; one guy's response was better.

The law for self defense is the same for every one, regardless of any training; sufficient force to prevent injury or death to your self or others. It's a simple as that. You don't need registration to opt out or in to any law, it sees no difference.
