ass kicking mentality
    #2464973 - 03/23/04 09:03 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Where does this mentality come from? Every male that I have ever met seems to secretly hold the belief that they can kick anybodies ass. The size or fighting ability of the opponent does not matter so long as certain criteria are met:

1. If it was a fight to the death. The reason being I wouldn't quit. I would go so hard that I would overwhelm them.

2. If they harmed a loved one. I would be so blinded with rage that I would over power them.

There are lots of spins on this. One spin is the notion that a martial artist would prevail over an UFC champion. The reason being that the martial artist uses forces to overcome the opponent.

However, when heavyweights (200+ lbs) fight, the match is never decided until the end, because any punch thrown could knock the other man out.

That isn't what I meant to say. What I was trying to convey is the notion that Mr. Myogi from the Karate Kid could over power someone like Arnold Shortsanagger.

well Mr Myogi didn't even know any martial arts...

but as Jiu Jitsu, Aikido and Bruce Lee have proven, size and muscle mass does not equal winning.

Yeah, that's true. But they may be the exception and not the rule.

I'm a weakling with no fighting skills whatsoever, and I have delusions about it. Half the girls on the Shroomery could probably kick my ass. But that's ok, because one thing I am quite good at is avoiding fights to begin with.

What if a guy walked up and called you a fucking bitch and pushed you, you're like i dont want to fight lets talk it out or whatever, then you get hit in the face you dont even have time to AVOID the fight with some types of people.

There's a thing called walking away. That guy can think I'm a pussy all he wants. I don't give a fuck. The desire to hit him back is just pride fucking with you. Fuck pride! I'm not gonna risk getting my ass kicked just to impress some asshole.

"because one thing I am quite good at is avoiding fights to begin with."

exelent... that is a skill that even some of the best martial artists/strongest people have a problem realizing.... the TRUE martial artist will always walk away, using violence as a last resort. im 18 and have never been in a pysical fight, except with my bro, but only like once....... some people take this as your being 'weak' but pysical stength/prowess is only HALF of the equation.

yeah, the only time kicking someones ass is absolutely necessary, is when they are a threat to the lives of yourself or your loved ones/desecrating the sacredness of formlessness. people pushing you or throwing punches can be easily countered and neutralized.. there is really no need to ever physically hurt someone unless "they deserve it". sometimes an ass kicking is the universe's way of dealing out karma.

advanced martial artists employ the eye for an eye saying as thier ultimate rule set in martial combats... if your oponent hits you weak, hit weak back, if he uses the death touch respond with the same lethal force.

That's what i'm saying , if a person actually wants to fucking fight you , if you're walking away , while your walking away , or before you walk away some kinds of people will just hit you.

If they hit me, I'll run away so they can't hit me again. What's so hard to understand here?

Yeah, if you are dead, you should respond with lethal force.
