Real life confrontations

Reading the previous post about the burglar got me thinking about safety and self defence.

Its all very good and well in the safe environment of your gym, to practice techniques on a non-resisting opponent, with no adrenaline, no fear.

The question always will be, what will you do when facing a real life confrontational situation? Will you freeze up in fear?

Here is an example of a combat situation where your wife is in danger:



Here is an example of how to deal with the situation if you are being mugged:



Seriously though? You gotta do what you gotta do:

Thor Saves The Day



A MUSCLE-BOUND building boss scared off a burglar after coming home from a New Year’s Eve fancy dress party dressed as THOR.
Six-foot-tall fitness fanatic Torvald Alexander, 38, was kitted out for the night in full God of Thunder outfit - complete with flying red cape and silver-winged helmet.

But when Mr Alexander got home he spotted the raider in his front room rifling through a desk and charged at him.

Mr Alexander said the burglar threw himself out of a first floor window of his home in Edinburgh when he threw open the door and confronted him.

Speaking today Mr Alexander said: “As soon as he saw me his eyes went wide with terror.

“He looked like he had had a few drinks and decided to do a late night break in, but he hadn’t counted on the God of Thunder living here.”

He added: “I had just got back from a fancy dress New Year’s party and because I have a Norwegian name I decided to go as Thor.

“It took ages making the cape, helmet and breast plate, and I must admit it was a bit chilly walking home, but when I saw that guy I just went mad and charged at him, my cape flying behind me.

“I think if I had had Thor’s hammer with me I might have scared him to death.”

Norse legend Thor has a magical hammer, called Mjolnir, which after knocking out a foe magically returns to the superhero.

It can also throw lightning bolts at enemies.

Mr Alexander said that the burglar had not managed to steal anything, but had left his shoes at the scene.

He said: “He had obviously taken off his shoes to creep about in silence, but when he saw me he just jumped out of the window in his socks.

“It will make him think again before breaking into other people’s homes. Hopefully it’s taught him a lesson.”

Mr Alexander said he was contacting police today and was going to hand over the burglar’s shoes in the hope cops can trace him.

An £80m blockbuster based on the Norse superhero is due to be released in 2010 after Kenneth Branagh agreed to direct it.

James Bond star Daniel Craig was rumoured to be taking the lead role, but no actors have so far been confirmed.

Toy Sale




Toywiz is having a sale, today is the last day!

I bought for Sean most of the Cars set (the major characters only). Normal retail price is roughly RM25 per car. But they were selling for RM50 for 3! So I bought 12 cars. In Toys R Us, Lightning, King and Chick are nearly impossible to find. But they had them all here. I think I bought the last (or only) ones though. 

Now the problem is when to give him the toys. One at a time, or all at one go? Also when? Christmas is over and his birthday is in Sept. We seem to be buying him toys practically every week already, so we're saving this for dunno when. Lucky and yet poor Sean Sean

Brings back memories of law school. But good lecture


Don't Talk to Cops Part 1 - Mr. James Duane, a professor at Regent Law School


Don't Talk To Cops Part 2 - Officer George Bruch, Virginia Beach PD

I'm pretty sure that most of us not in the US don't have a Fifth Amendment to rely on. But I'm pretty sure its still good advice.
