    Jan 2, 2009, 7:16 PM - "Happy" new year (or something..) #1

    Now, sorry, I do not mean to trash this upon you guys, but has anyone spotted that unfortunate events follow each other?
    I spent my new year's eve quite nicely on a bar, with a friend, met a nice, lovely girl, only to get a call from a friend whose sister had been beaten by her (so-called) boyfriend.
    Sheesh! All this to me!!! if anyone can remember what I went through early summer, this pushed the envelope..
    I Immediately asked the number from the girl I was talking to, explained what was happening, and promised to call her come tomorrow.. I then went to my friend, Laura, with whom I went to see her sister. She (the sister) had a swelling bruise on her left eye, and my friend Laura yelled him (the sister's boyfriend) to hit another woman. He did, unfortunately, try. At that point, I went mad. I threw the bastard on the floor, and he would have ended up on the hospital if the girls would not have asked (And i mean ASKED, not yelled or prayed) me to stop. No fists were thrown, otherwise the guy would be in hospital at that instant.
    Still, even after Laura told that I was correct to come in between, I feel somewhat disappointed at myself. I have practiced Aikido for ten years, and quite frankly, the shrimp-of-a-guy would not have been any problem.. Still. I feel bad.. This is not in my nature by far. I know only too well what damage a human body can and cannot absorb. I would not have any trouble if I was the one attacked. Self-defence is acceptable by any (reasonable) laws. Still, I stepped in when a person I cared was attacked.
    Was I wrong to step in? And please, If I used improper words in this post, I am sorry for that. In my mind, the words are tenfold, and quite impolite..

    I'd have done the same... probably without the self restraint part.

    Justified indeed, I would have done the same. No fists unless he attacked me.
    I think you did right.

    Thanks guys. I needed that confirmation. I have zero tolerance on violence, thievery and things like that. Especially when the victim is a woman. Still, it bothered quite a lot even though Laura said that I did the right thing. And about the restraint.. If the girls had not been there, the guy would not have been so lucky.

    I totally agree with you Chibi, just wanna make sure that when you stepped in, you were stopping him from a second attack? If he had already stopped his assault, your's could be a very bad thing, remember you have been trained in a Martial art, thus making YOU a deadly weapon, I applaude your restraint, but if he wasn't attempting to hurt anyone at that IMMEDIATE moment, then you could be in a load of trouble.
    But ANY MAN WHO HAS THE BALLZ to attack a woman has NO BALLZ, and need's to be taught a lesson.

    Well, when Laura called me, the jerk had already beaten his girlfriend. When we got there, Laura's sister had a huge, swelling bruise on her eye. At that point Laura started yelling to the guy about how you treat women and the bastard tried to assault Laura as well. At that time, I stepped in. He had already beaten his girl, and was about to do the same to my friend. In my mind, there was absolutely no choice, other than SERIOUSLY hurting the guy, and facing the consequences..

    then you were in the right, and had no other choice, you had to defend your friend, you were in the right, so don't worry, and don't feel bad about what you did, I would have done the same thing, as would anyother person here. You must be part jedi
