I saw this video on TV years ago and was surprised on the level of idiocy on the pimp’s part. Just because he scared the women, did not translate well into really being an intimidating figure. The guy had a poor education, maybe no father figure to teach him how to treat women.
When I was in the 4th grade, I made the mistake of slapping a girl back after she had just slapped me. The girl went crying home and told her mother, who told her father after he came home. The girls father came over to my house and told my father. My dad was embarrassed that his son (me) had broken one of societies rules – boys don’t hit girls!)! Well let me tell you that after my father had educated me – I was not able to sit down easily for days and had to apologize to the girl the very next day.
Society has conventions that transcend any laws that may come into play for a reason. Girls and women are boys and men’s partners in life and should be respected. If a girl mis-steps and strikes a boy – two wrongs do not make a right!!! Men should not ever hit women! Anyway review this video and I will try and tie karate principals to the pimp’s education.
This pimp seemed to have what I like to call beer muscle. The pimp really thought he could fight because he was mad? Jay Lee was apparently doing a police training video and told the guy to lay off the girl. The guy came after Lee and walked right into his critical distance to got hit by an apparent back-knuckle strike that dropped him!
This falls into the self-defense category even though the girl did not want her pimp to get hurt. I used to experience similar fights in front of my old studio. You see the karate studio was two doors down from a biker bar and after rescuing a couple of biker girls who in turn cussed me out – I started making them move down the street instead of breaking up the fights! If the girls asked for help – I still did help.
The funniest biker incident I was involved with was when one girl came into the studio and wanted to fight on of my girl students. I warned her to get out and she persisted. I picked her up and tossed her out onto the sidewalk (notice I did not hit her). She got the idea and left.
I think Jay Lee did the right thing to stop the beating and contribute to the pimp’s education. If you liked this post, please sign up for my RSS feed.
