"what??? the pensioner doesnt even get sentanced for that??? thats unlike the british justice system."

No it isn`t - you have a right to hit someone until they are dazed or unconscious. You can do so in defence of self, others, property or to prevent a crime in progress. You can attack them on sight if they are in your home - their presence is a threat. This is all very clear in the law. That`s the law, as opposed to urban myth. People have killed intruders and it`s been ruled reasonable force.

I bet you`re thinking of Tony Martin, who used an illegal gun to shoot people in the back, as he had clearly planned to do (and he still escaped a murder charge). That`s not reasonable force.

"I Remember when that a broke into a familys house and tried to kill the dad, but got pushed down the stairs and he sued the guy for it"

It probably never happened. Most of it`s just made up. If this is an exception, bear in mind that suing doesn`t mean winning. Anyone c

I`m sure this guy will have a lovely time in prison when the other inmates find out.

His underwear is going to look like the Japanese flag.

Tia-Shadow: Yes, boxing is a martial art. It`s effective - that`s why it has rules to stop boxers being killed in contest fights. It`s not just untrained brawling.

What would you say boxing lacks that stops it being a martial art?

"ONLY 2 PUNCHES?! wtf, is he an old man or superman?"

He`s a boxer. It`s an effective martial art. Retiring doesn`t mean forgetting, so he knows how to punch very efficiently. Presumably he still trains to maintain strength and vigour. Speed too, because those two punches were a combo. He probably dodged the knife, too.

Next time anyone sees someone blathering about self-defence being illegal in the UK, show them this. It`s legal to attack a burglar on sight, even if they don`t threaten you (their presence is deemed a threat in itself).

I know a man in his mid 60s who competes as a cyclist. He still goes to France to do the hors categorie hillclimbs from the Tour and routinely does 25 mile road races in under an hour. There are a couple of men in their 70s in his club who are as fast.

If you train, you can maintain yourself physically into old age.

haha i had a kid who graduated from my high school a couple years a go who broke into a bedroom window of his neighbors thinking that it was his. When he climbed in the 78 y.o. lady who lived there took out an old single shot gunpowder musket and shot him with it. Not once might I add but twice which means the drunkass stayed there long enough for her to reload, pack it down, and shoot him again. Kid survived. I`m going to try and find the news article on it to post
