    I´m suprised!!!

    Never tought you were in to Martial Arts!!!!

    I am not. This was first part of my training in a job and then it became a passion but mostly for fitness purposes. Believe it or not but I cannot really remember a single situation where I had a serious fight for my life, at least not with fists. Smiley

    Again, off topic...Sorry. Blame the R8 (Again the R8) and the E63

    I´m also a martial art fan and practitioner (Kick Boxing and jiu Jitsu) but no for 30 Years... Just 10.

    My son does Judo and Kickboxing but the first couple of months were very difficult for him, he hated it. The Judo group started in school btw., interesting, right?!

    One of the best things when a person is practicing a Martial Arts is....stance.

    You know what i´m talking about....You walk different, you´re stance is diferrent....People """"""""""kinda bow to you"""""""""

    Yeah, there are some very agressive schools (and very agressive security guards).....

    Usually a guy that does Martial Arts rarely gets in Trouble!!!

    Mostly because people who are serious about martial arts learned how to AVOID dangerous situations. Smiley This is the advantage of actually recognizing such situations, training does wonders.

    You also learn to respect and your senses just go Berzerk and you learn to antecipate bad situations!!!!!

    Exactly. So you can walk away from them. Smiley

    Re: Mercedes E63 S AMG (2018) - Short Review (updated on a regular basis)

    SmileyPersonally I enjoy hearing about peoples background on this forum. RC is a bad ass dude. I admire his restraint as well as his healthy ego and can easily imagine what it is was like for him growing up since we are the same age. Growing up just outside Vienna during the height of the Cold War with an American mom there was plenty of fascinating stuff taking place. The real world back then would have been a harsh place for RC. You either survive and thrive or you don’t.  So it’s not bragging if you can back it up.  

    Anyway. I went by the Benz dealer and was struck by the difference in materials between the model classes. It’s like they go out of their way to cheapen the c class. Switches and knobs etc are play school quality. Like cheap toys. There can’t be that much savings in switches between the classes?  These are Mercedes so why cut such corners. I guess I see that when I look at the 991 interior as well. 

    In the end I decided I hate cars shopping so I bought out my Azera lease and keeping it as my horrible weather car. I would do a write up on it if anyone is interested.  The salespersons I met these last couple of weeks all remind me of the guy in the movie Fargo.

    Yep, I am a cold war "product", no doubt... 😉 Bad ass? Not really since I was in the position to get expelled in a worst case scenario, not arrested, if you get my point. Very comfortable position compared to the real bad asses out there at that time.

    In 1979, while mandatory serving in Poland, was deployed to Legnica(Leignitz) as an MP.

    Unfortunately, there was a RA Spetznatz unit based there too and they loved to party and my 3 person patrol was sent to a bar once to quiet these guys down.

    There were 4 of them, 2 of us ended up in a hospital, 2 of them also, other 2 bailed out and the remaining member of our patrol was left standing.

    That guy was the baddest guy I have ever met, with 6’4” and 225 lbs I was tiny compared to him, he was just untouchable, basically could pick me up with ease and throw at a wall....Smiley

    Not very likely...there was no Russian military stationed where I worked. 

    I think I mentioned before that I worked as a diplomat for 7 years, not SF. 😜 Had a good friend who made it 18D though, still in contact but he is retired now.

    Trained with US Marines at the Marine House though, the security detachment for the US embassy. I'm still in contact with the gunny and two others, fine people...if they like you. 😉

    Sorry to disappoint you guys, I was no James Bond, just did my work, mostly gathering information, talking to locals, making contacts to other diplomats at the diplomatic club, taking care of German students there, some cultural affairs and similar stuff. Since it was the cold war period, we were of course trained for certain situations and we had to "keep our eyes open" but it was fun, learned a lot about different nations, cultures and people and also about stuff you don't really want to know about. Had some hard times there too as well since I was there in a pretty "agitated" period of time but made lots of interesting friends and learned that a lot of cliches about diplomats and their servic are actually true. 

    I could tell you guys stories...incl. a very delicate (and funny) love affair, even involving a Porsche 911 (not me...the love affair).

    For kids in threatening bullying type of environments, you might want to check out small circle jujitsu for them. Commonly used by prison guards to control physically  aggressive prisoners without permanently injuring them. Basically it's advanced joint locks, finger locks, pressure points, throws, control moves etc..No throat punches, nose side slams or damaging of internals. It's not like your kids need to only have sentry removal techniques in their tool box.indecision

    My kids never had issues with bullying but some hurtful comments can do the trick as well... Smiley

    Both my kids do martial arts but not to be able to respond to bullying or whatever but to defend themselves in the case of an emergency. Also, it teaches them discipline and restraint. Both good things in real life.
