There is a difference between a martial artist and a goon. The first category are known to be able to control their instincts and be calm in the face of danger and respond with controlled violence as and when is absolutely necessary. I am glad to hear that this issue is settled and the perfect and just way that you handled it. Always remember, fighting is not good. Somebody always gets hurt.

I realize this thread is pretty old now, but I wanted to give the OP a big thumbs up.

Sun-Tzu would be very proud of you. You avoided needless conflict. You won on a higher level.

I disagree. There can be MAists that are goons out there.

I don't really feel this way. Someone comes into my house to do wrong, the gifts I have for that person will not be calm and collected. Swift and ferocious, more like.

I completely agree. Granted-- you still want to be collected in the sense of being in control as a measure of safety for yourself and your family, but I believe there is a time to get angry and to express that anger in no uncertain terms.

I'd say a martial artist has an obligation to stand up for those who are too weak and frightened to defend themselves. I certainly would say something, but don't /try/ to make a fight out of it. Judo is a doozy of an art to know in these situations. If any violence does regrettably occur you can knock someone down without really hurting them at all. hence showing your skill without the assault charges or injuries on either party.and Id say thats not evena fight, just very skillfully asking him to sit back down... ^^; so that decision should be made based on this guys aggression level when confronted verbally and on what art you know. I came across a very similar situation in highschool...
