End this media-promoted, "kung-fu" madness!
by John SkieSwanne
The use of a gun is currently under heavy debate because the bullet of a gun can break bones, damage organs, and thus have the potential to be lethal.
Kung-fu, along with many other martial "art", is also capable of all these things. Yet no one ever talks about this little detail.
I used to study Kung-fu, with a local master - then I got sickened by it all. I am fully aware of its capability. It is classified as martial "art",
but it is no art. It is a bloody weapon, designed to inflict injuries. Are guns classified as "martial art"?
Tiger Style is oriented in training to grab the insides of one's targets. Snake Style often targets the neck, and in this style you also quickly
learn how to break the neck by twisting the head of your target, a move which will of course kill your victim. But such tutorials are easier and
easier to find. And these are only few of a long list of styles, which also includes Chen style, Okinawa, Wing-chung, Chin-na, etc.
There has been and still are efforts in Big Media to romanticize Kung-fu, so to widen its acceptance by our (already violence-prone) society, and this
trend sickens me. Now they are basically teaching anyone who is interested (regardless if it's a kid, a normal adult or a psychopath) techniques to
injure a fellow man or woman.
Guns (especially revolvers, which are often chosen over pistols because pistols tend to jam) have a limit of bullet, usually 5. There is virtually no
limit to how many injuries a wannabe kung-fu practitioner (let alone skilled ones) can inflict to innocent victims. It is not unrealistic to realize
that as more bullies learn martial "arts", more innocent people will be victims of bullying.
I firmly believe that martial "arts" and other forms of violence, including Kung-Fu, should be eliminated. For the sake of our kid's future. It's
a weapon created by mankind to damage mankind. I sure wouldn't trust mankind with such a weapon.
The true battle is not in the amount of blood one spills, but in the very concepts which one lets take hold of one's action.
