    John, thank you for the comment on my blog. insightful and true! I picked this entry to comment on because I remember watching this showing quite vividly (it was right before I bailed on cable all-together). Anyways, I was really pulling for Chyna in this one, but it just doesn’t seem to matter…the “man strength” is quite a thing to deal with. What would have happened if Joey was actually “raging” too? Took a look at the pictures too (of you and your friends). I absolutely love the one of you and Bear. Must have been circa 1970’s. You looked like a member of CCR. All the best and I hope you journey back to my page soon. Cheers brother. -Michael Joyce

    I totally agree there is a big difference between a fight and self defence.

    People should come and see the girls at the club that I train in. We train in Krav Maga; it’s the Israeli army’s self defence system. It’s awesome, loving every minute of it!

    The girls at our club are much smaller than allot of the boys, but when it comes to training they seem to be allot more ruthless (maybe because they don’t know how it feels to cop a good one in the groin)

    I think traditional martial arts is great but I believe that self defence where it is not training for “the fight” but rather for “the attack” should be everyone’s priority.

    I guess I’m just stoked that they finally bought Krav Maga to Melbourne; I think everyone should check it out!

    Hi Sarah – thanks for checking the site out… yes self defense is totally different than sport karate or fighting.
