The Truth About the Knife vs Gun
Posted: April 06, 2011
This is a clip from a great police training video. It really helps you to understand how quickly a knife attack can happen. I have often heard people say that if someone attacked them with a knife, that they would just shoot them. Watch the video and think again. Most attacks are not seen from the required range of 21 feet. This is why training in tactics as well as martial arts are extremely important. (especially for law enforcement)
I hope you find the video eye opening.
P.S. I didn’t title the video, so it’s not my fault that the title is not spelled correctly.

Bullying and Repercussions
Posted: April 04, 2011
I think that just about everyone in the world has seen the video below, but I just wanted to comment on it. There are so many things wrong with this chain of events, that it makes me wonder what kind of world we are leaving to our children, and more importantly what can be done differently.
First of all I feel badly for the large overweight kid that was being bullied. If you read the back-story on this event, you will find that this child is often bullied because of his weight. This is a sad statement for two reasons. The first is that we are raising kids that will bully someone who is overweight. The second reason is that if this child doesn’t change his eating and exercise habits, he will not only be facing bullies, but also a series of long term health problems as well. Obesity is a growing problem in the world, and we need to do a better job of training our kids in this regard.
Another thing that bothers me is the little bully’s character. What made him think that this behavior was acceptable, and how many other people has he picked on. More importantly how will this video affect him in the future. Will he always be known as the kid who got beaten up on youtube. I wonder what long term psychological effects he will suffer in the future.
