    I noticed that to Drew. Made me wonder why he didn't just tackle him.

    Maybe while he is big, he has no training.

    The robber, Mr. Azar Sulman, is a cannabis addict; not a fighter.:hippie:

    "He was very impolite and I don't take kindly to that."

    "He was pointing the gun in my face and was telling me he would shoot me. He had a bad attitude."

    I always liked the Brits' talant for understatement. That is funny stuff.

    $300 a week on weed?

    How did he manage to get off the couch for his bag of cheetos, let alone commit a robbery if he was toking down that much grass? I mean I had friends in college for whom the herb was their substance of choice, and when they sat down with a bag of grass, the 4 of them were basically catatonic for the weekend.

    Or is cannabis code for something more serious over in the Queen's dominion?

    More on topic, "Tiny" there looks like he could stop bullets with his chest and keep right on trucking. He may have a son playing rugby in college, but I'll bet that there's been more than a practice or two where that no-neck-having daddy got down in a scrum and showed the youngsters how. Azar is lucky he didn't have room for a full wind up with that chair, or he'd be 6 feet under with his hair line about even with his collar bone.

    Well Drew, I have only about 30 years of TKD and TSD (Tang So Do.) And about a year Krav Maga.

    And if I was that guys size, I'd have tackled him (but I ain't that size.)

    Someone in not-so-Great-anymore Britain is already working on plans for a safe chair with rounded-off legs.

    No disrespect sir, but there's a character here on Glocktalk that keeps touting his/her education, training and "30 years of experience" - you might have gone 8 or 10 rounds with him/her in the past :whistling:) - and I'm not thoroughly convinced about the caliber of criminals he/she may or may not have tussled with.

    So pardon me if I become IMMEDIATELY suspicious whenever someone throws that "30 year" thing around! :tongueout:

    5th Dan, I take it? :cool:

    Well Drew, being 55 years old and started TSD in college under John Chu (SFASU, here in Texas) yep, 30 years of it. While it was billed as TKD, the Kwan was Moo Duk Kwan (a Tang Soo Do Kwan) under the WTF. Everything we did was TSD, ever the forms and belts. And once Chu died, and the whole thing split up, half went to TSD and the other half TKD (not sure if they transfered to another Kwan.) Oh, and Kwan means 'school' and there may be many dojos/dojangs affiliated with a Kwan.)

    I ended up in Moo Hak Kwon (a Hapkido Kwan) that taught Taekwondo! This kwan is affliated with not only the WTF but ITF (International Taekwondo Federation, what the Korean army teaches.) My teacher, the same one I've had for at least 20 years, was a ROK in Vietnam (and yes, he has some interesting stories.) We don't 'do' Olympic TKD BTW.

    Anyway.... yes 5th dan with a few broken bones and bent nose.

    Lately I've been in Krav Maga as well as TKD. Yes I do both each week at different places. I've picked up some very good training techniques from KM that I, and a few buddies, do as part of our Sunday routine at a local park. TKD does not have all the answers (but no 'system' does!)

    And that avitar of mine is me (in my younger days.)

    Yeah, 5th Dan sounds about right for 30 years, + having a "regular" life.

    There is a hot shot guy (Shozo Kato) around these parts that just got his 8th dan in Kendo (Japanese fencing). Me? I am content to watch my kids go thru the motions but barely thru the ranks of "Kung-Fu". :)

    Here is his story. He earned my respect.

    Two questions:

    1- What's a "punter" in the UK?
    2- Where's that sum*****'s neck?




    (seriously, all I see is ears and shoulders)

    Drew,

    Master Kato lives that stuff. That is his job and his advocation. If you shot guns every day, practiced technique daily, taught it, lived it, breathed it, well you would be a, uh, Miculek or Munden!

    My hats off to Master Kato. They have high standards in Japan and as a result the test are most difficult.

    Alas for me... I was destined for the cubical. MVS, CICS, TSO/ISPF, COBOL, JES2, ISMF, OPCF, etc.. mainframe stuff, and ASP.NET, SQL, Oracle, etc.. for the 'new stuff'. I do applications, system work, and administration.

    Funny thing is most of our 'guberment' still uses COBOL yet no university teaches it. I am the YOUNGEST programmer here that knows it! I have fancy titles but I'm still just a programmer ( I know better than to kid myself.)

    I know when retirement age comes I won't work at Wal-mart. I'll be a contract programmer for the guberment (if it ain't broke by then.)

    Shooting and the martial arts is my advocation. Gets me as far away from the desk as I can get. But if I was to teach it, I'd starve.
