I survived my assault, and even managed to send my attacker home with bells ringing in his head. Andrew Young, who had a mental age of fourteen, no ground-in defensive skills, and probably lacked street smarts, was not so fortunate.
Nothing can be gained through the use of judicial executions or the assassinating of people, even if they are guilty of crimes (terrorism) they have previously committed. The cost to human life should be the single biggest motivating factor toward finding a way to end all violence immediately.
In training we are not doing each other any favours if we don't treat it as seriously as a real fight , otherwise we'll be helping our attackers off the ground instead of keeping them there or stopping short of actually hitting them to avoid doing them damage.
