Self defence industry in disarray.

Martial arts schools from around the World are buzzing with the latest advice emanating from a Dojo in the Westminster area.

A Sensei from this School, which is rumoured to have developed secretive open hand techniques, has revealed that the best way to deal with an ongoing violent or confrontational incident in the street is to stand by and 'jump up and down'. This will deter the offender who will make off.

A Black Belt, who declined to be named, said 'This could ruin us. We teach our students a variety of techniques which can take years to master. To be able to deal with a violent situation by simply 'jumping on the spot' could close us'.

However an Okinawan master has urged caution. He said that ' I doubt its effectiveness as a street technique. However jumping up and down until the police manage to turn up could be a beneficial aerobic exercise, but give yourself a break every five to ten minutes.'

Tony McNulty did not express himself especially well, but I believe he was trying to convey the idea that wading in with a fist cocked is not necessarily a good idea; it's hardly unheard of for some good citizen to try and intervene in a mugging only to wind up killed or badly injured for starting something they couldn't finish. A good loud yell of "Oi! Fuck off or I'll have the law on you!" is probably most people's best bet.
