A sixteen year-old teen from around these parts was recently accosted for his cell phone. If you ask me, he acted appropriately. He remained confident in his techniques and stayed level-headed enough to apply them under duress. When it was safe to do so, he fled and immediately alerted the authorities. http://www.timescolonist.com/nanaimo-karate-kid-s-fists-of-fury-fend-off-would-be-cellular-phone-thief-1.115549 All around, a great example of how to conduct oneself in an altercation.
