Reality.

An excellent blog by Tammy at Kore Krav Maga.

Favourite bit:

“There is nothing pretty or inherently confidence-building about a violent encounter. Even if you win.”

 

Inevitable quotable response by Dillon Beyer:

“I’ve you’ve ever seen how flustered, shaky, and adrenalized someone gets after an argument with a store clerk, the idea of walking away from a self defense situation with a serene smile gets pretty silly.”

 

Slightly tangentially, but not altogether so, this is one of my favourite violent scenes from a movie, namely American History X. It’s heinously unpleasant to watch and I’m probably never going to sit through the whole thing again, but what you can see in the four seconds from 1:45 to 1:49 is… well, it’s important, I think.
