    That happened to me to an extent. When I earned my blackbelt in eighth grade, I told my friends. At the same time, a few friends who witnessed my testing told their friends. Soon the whole school knew I was a blackbelt.

    ...

    I got a lot of fight requests but I told them they weren't worth my time. It's still a well known fact and a bit of a joke to people, but no one bugs me.

    The one thing everyone should know about Taekwon Doe is this:
    You are not allowed to fight people outside unless it is in self defence.

    Keep that in mind, people joining Taekwon Do. You can't just go randomley beat people up. Why?
    One: It's not allowed.
    Two: You can't really beat people up with the starting moves, like Sahajarugi...
    That IS how you spell it, right? The four-directional punch..?

    Call me Derry, Dermodio, Modio or Sir. Actually, scratch the first 3.

    I'm not really sure XD

    Yeah, randomly beating people up is a misuse of the art. It defies the very tenants of Taekwon-do. And if you learn well, you'll learn the lesson I already posted about how to win a fight.

    Thanks for your help, everyone!

    From what I noticed, Taekwon-do seems to be the most popular recommedation here...

    I realize now I've looking at street fights the wrong way...

    But what if someone needs help, like they're being beaten or raped? what should I do then?

    Maybe I should also learn how to draw & fire guns quickly with accuracy... like the gunslingers of the old west...

    From what I undestand, learning about guns is away practial...

    (& if Obama get his way & guns are banned, then I'll learn how to throw knives, throwing stars, shiranuis, etc.)

    ... okay, if you ever fight someone with a gun and shoot them, you will be in a world of trouble.

    If someone is being beaten or raped, call the police. Or, if able, BE REALLY REALLY LOUD AND ATTRACT A LOT OF ATTENTION! Seriously you have no idea how effective it is to have a flock of people come over to investigate a commotion like that.

    Granted, I can understand the desire to protect people like that. But you would have to be very cautious with anything you do. If a person is beating on another, then they will have no issue beating on you.

    What exactly is Gunkata?
    I asked because this computer is too slow to watch youtube videos...

    & what if I'm the only one around to help?
    I wouldn't be able to forgive myself for just standing by...

    basically making gunplay into an art form.

    Ah, I see now, thanks!

    Gun fu would be awesome to learn!

    & I've remembered something:

    If I show the thugs my guns & warn them I'll use them & they are too stupid to take the hint & try to attack anyways (or start to pull out their guns), then I belive I'm justified to shoot.

    But just warning them I'll shoot should be enough for them to run off...

    Life is not that predictable...

    Seriously, being paranoid about situations like this is pointless. You will never be fully prepared for every danger in life.

    You're right...

    I should just focus on what I need for now...

    & that's to learn something to help with anger.

    (Apparently, Taekwon-do is a very good choice...)

    Do kendo. It's much cooler.
    That's nice.

    It may be cooler, but would it be what I need?

    Taekwon-do helped me a lot emotionally. I recommend it.
