I was hoping to learn a couple things about self-defense, awareness, what have you... I haven't learned much that is very useful, but it's still a great book, very interesting, and providing insights about how things used to be during WW2.
Interesting article about John L Sullivan, bare knuckle brawler/boxer. I found his guard intersting, his hand positioning looks somewhat like Wing Chun (Im not a practicioner, only commenting on what little I know about Wing Chun) http://afflictor.com/tag/john-l-sullivan/
Last friday evening during my regular kickboxing session , the subject of sparring and the law came up . One of the students asked the instructor (not me) , why sparring wasnt assault . After much debate we concluded that it proberbly was ! , the only differance being that within our group we chose to be there and are members of the club.
I was just wondering if the forum had any thought on this .
