If a teenager is jumped on & punched etc, do you believe they should punch back?
darn right. if more then one person jumps them, they should get a bat and beat the crap out of the people who jumped them. i don't care what anyone says, violence can be solved with violence, i've proven it more then once.
I don't think anyone should start a fight, but that everyone should know how to finish one. I've recommended some kind of self-defense or martial arts training for most every teen I know, and adult women as well.
A person who is known to be able to defend themselves is less likely to be picked on or abused.
Nightwork4 and weekendreader, thank you. I agree with you both. I am thinking martial arts should maybe be a part of school curriculum actually as it teaches so much aswell as self defence doesn't it, ie. respect, discipline, self esteem etc. Last week i witnessed a friend's son being laid into at school. He did nothing as he'd gotten in trouble in the past for defending himself. He got two sessions in the Tap room (like detention room) & the bully got 4. I think this is ridiculous&what is it teaching? The attack was totally unprovoked
Absolutely. Physical altercations are unfortunate, but they are a reality, especially with teenagers. I don't recommend sitting there and getting hit in the face. It's important to stand up for yourself; however, it's best for everyone to have self-defense training so that you understand how to defend yourself properly. You'd be surprised how many altercations quickly diffuse themselves (WITHOUT coming to blows) when you become experienced in martial arts because of the peace of mind you achieve through training.

My little sister punched me in the lips and now it's swollen. I wanted to punch a baby kitten...but sadly none were around. To any guys who get punched in the face and bleed because of their little sister, I understand. Just thought I'd share b4 bed.. : (GN HPJesse

I was taught to look around find the weakest link and attack through him and run. If they give chase only a few will be able to keep up. Your job is to strike the closes person during the chase and strike him with strikes that are effective and keep on running...so is seems like knowing how to...

Have you ever jumped to a conclusion before hearing both sides of a story?What did you learn through your experience? Consider: Proverbs 18:17 The first to present his case seems right, till another comes forward and questions him and Proverbs 18:8 - The words of a gossip are like...
