Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum. Quid enim est aetas hominis, nisi ea memoria rerum veterum cum superiorum aetate contexitur? -- Cicero, Marcus Tullius (106-43BC)

comment How do you prepare for the stress of a real self-defense situation?
-1. If you either escalate or strike pre-emptively, you have become the aggressor and will no longer be covered by self defence. This means you might be arrested and if so, will have to defend yourself at a trial. Unless you are stupid, this will cost you a large amount in lawyer fees with no grantees of escaping jail. If you talk to the Police, your chances of escaping jail will be much reduced. Even if you stay on the right side of self defence, a punch can kill. Finally, individual are not bound by the same laws as countries so any comparison between the two is ludicrous.

Are you affiliates with Airloop? Your post can be read as either a genuine happy customer or as thinly veiled spam... It is hard to say.

comment Why do we train martial arts?
@DaveLiepmann: I honestly cannot find a way to ask "Why do you train" in a way that would fit SE without being a list of things, too broad, and so personal that no one answer would fit more than a few people unless platitudes are given. If you think you can, go for it!

Losers, maybe. Trolling, most definitively: instead of a goal, I believe they were pointing to the road. Finding a goal is easy but walking the path is hard. Which is more or less what you are saying... Although, I am not sure you answered the question -- whatever the question was.

I voted to close because your question is too broad and invites discussions. The latter is very much not supported by SE sites. This would make for an interesting conversation but this Q&A site is not the place for it.

comment Are there legal ramifications to being a trained martial artist?
Yes, I was referring to the state trouper. It makes more sense if he is part of your anecdote.

+1 for the first paragraph. -1 for anecdotal evidence and hear say.

I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV. That said, I do not believe that a UN resolution automatically translate into the law of any country whether they signed it or not. A quick and dirty search shows that they are considered "recommendations" by article 10 and 14. Admittedly, that was from wikipedia which, as I said before, is not a reference. Still, it should be east to verify. Apparently Sergei A. Voitovich, International Economic Organizations in the International Legal Process, p. 95. Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 1995. ISBN 0-7923-2766-7 has the meat of the matter.

Wikipedia is not a reference, the article does not reference anything to do with martial arts, and its link to the text is broken. Could you find the exact text of the resolution?
