    QUOTE: Nah...it is developed by the Jews and has so many flaws.


    WRONG!! It was developed by the Israeli Army . . .a huge percntage of which are Sabras. For the less intelligent amongst you, Sabras are natural born Israelis who are not alway Jews!!. With regards Krav Maga, it's a very good art, designed to use whatever is to hand. If that means throwing a handfull of coins or gravel in someones face then so be it. Before you negatively comment on an art whether it be trad karate, Krav Maga, Ju jitsu, Wing Chun, Kempo, TKD, Judo etc - have the decency to have tried it before completly disregarding it.

    Oh by the way - what has the fact that it was, as you incorrectly put it, designed by Jews got to do with it would it be better if it was designed by a Catholic or a hindu . . muslim maybe??

    I'm an ok swimmer but because for last 6-7 years ive been pretty much done no swimming, i used to do swimming lessons/swimming club routine and enter into galas etc...not lost my touch but obviously the muscle groups used in swimming, well hmm not used to using them...but i will take heed of your advice, warm up well and just not go speeding along like a mad man which i did in the summer when i was on holiday...that explains the stretch marks i immediately achieved..

    Thanks

    yeah, you should try things first before you say if they are good or bad.... they might work for other people but not for you.

    yeah, best not to get into a fight, but if you ever do then stay focused and dont hold back til your safe. then usually RUN if you can.

    Ive been tought to end the fight before they start it, by observing peoples body language so you can predict what they might do next. Tho ive never had to do this as im normally in a safe areas.

    I can highly recommend a book by Richard Dimitri of Senshido called "In Total Defense Of the Self" (sic). Its all about the psychology of self survival and fighting . .expensive but well worth the money.

    I do shotokan karate, and as much as people say it isn't useful in a fight, it is. Obviously, you don't go for the spinning back kick to the head, but a swift palm strike to the throat or a knee in the face can do an awful lot of damage.

    I very much hope that knee-strike is a follow-up technique, because I'm a foot taller than most people I know and I can't percieve doing that in isolation...

    The fighting style is irrelevant. What’s important is the content of the book and how you can pre-empt the attack. I train in an art called SPS (Self protection System) No Japanese or Korean terminology. A rear inward punch is exactly what it says it is, palm heel strike, eye gouge – whatever . Remember K.I.S,S – Keep It Simple, STUPID. Which is what Richard does. He’s over in the Uk in March next year, 12th I think. Seminars in London and Coventry

    As far as the book goes, you can only order it directly from Richard Dimitri via his web site. http://www.senshido.com/sshp3_1.html You’ll have to email him and send credit card details in separate email for safety (Yeah I was sceptical too), but he’s as good as his word and world renowned for what he does. Check out “The Shredder” too. http://www.senshido.com/swwd2.html An absolutely brilliant conceptual tool which can be used against any attack – and I mean any attack be it punch, kick, edged weapon, even when wrestled to the ground, if you’re switched on enough you can use it (No I don’t have shares in Senshido LOL). I was 'lucky' enough to be shredded by the man himself at the London Seminar last year. . . . . just awesome!!

    Enjoy!

    Sounds like your wheels need truing. Cheap factory built wheels are usually poorly tensioned, thus are rarely true out of the box anyway (and if are, won't stay that way for long).

    Depends how bad it is (1mm is acceptable) but your local bike shop will retension and true each wheel for about £10 each. Probably not worth it considering their quality to begin with.
