The other thing I do is martial arts. I’ve taught for more than 12 years, including a stint coaching a Japanese high school team in Kyushu. I spent years running a full-time martial arts studio.
I’m always interested in seeing good training put to use. The video below is a perfect example of a martial arts master using what he knows. R-rated due to language, but work safe.
Let’s review what the bouncer demonstrated about real self defense:
- He didn’t let his ego or emotions get into the confrontation.
- He used humor in an attempt to defuse the situation.
- He kept his body language neutral and inoffensive.
- He refrained from using violence all the way to the point where he discovered violence wasn’t necessary.
Somebody with less training might have had to put hands on the young idiot. Instead, both walked away – and maybe the idiot walked away a little bit wiser.
Thanks for listening.

More spam from the cruise guy, but again I liked the quote.
