Relating to “use of force” in a self-defense situation is being discussed on Van Canna’s forum. This is information that Van has been trying to get the martial art community to learn and teach as an integral part of the dojo experience. . . mostly to an unreceptive audience.
Roy is approaching the subject from a different perspective. He is telling a real story about an average person who did what I beleive, any one of would have done in a similar situation. This person (from Brockton, MA) ended up in prison for over two years while the justice system slowly churned until finally the real victim got his day in court and was judged innocent by a jury of his peers.
It is a story you should be interested in reading and understanding. CLICK HERE!
