I have a deviated septum without a broken nose. Damn, I just think I should take care about it, it's so fragile!

I think everyone should learn to behave reasonably. Winning a fight can cause more trouble than losing it. But it's nice to have a choice.

Some can be perfectly ready for a hospital, cemetery or jail (especially if they don't realize that) but those who see their future differently have to avoid being involved into those stupid games.

Most annoying aggressors possess no physical threat these days. They explore your patience and mental agility rather than determination and fighting ability.

For me, Martial Arts differ from those fighting systems in that they aren't about fighting. They are about not fighting.

I think it's ridiculous to destroy yourself rather than your enemy with your blows. But a more important point is developing fortitude, ability to overcome a discomfort to achieve your goal. Mind over body.
