    Forgive me if I don’t seem cheerfull. I got into a fight today with a girl who pulled a knife on me. Relying on my marial arts training I blocked her attack flipped her over then broke her nose. As I was in position to finish her off for good I recalled my dad’s wisdom. He had said that in harsh moments that I could be foolish and do something that I would regret for the rest of my life, or fight the anger and use common sense to make a clear decision to do what is right. I could have killed that girl but instead used the submission techniques that my father taught me to disarm the girl. I then ran home to the loving arms of my dad and cried for about an hour. I begged him to stay home tonight because I didn’t want to be alone. He’s here by my side. He said that he was proud of me for using good judgement and that he was right for putting his trust in me. he says that I am maturing into a fine young woman. My question to all of you is ( am I a monster, or is my father you all know as wolfbyte36 right). Your opinions are important to me please let me know what you think.

    ladywolf you made the right choice to get away. as Joe said “who pulled the knife?” that there answers the question. best of luck to you.. i know life can be hard, but you have to use the wisdom that you have and keep your head hi. don’t do things you’ll regret the rest of your life and don’t let bad things scare you. i have been through a lot also. the sad thing is that im only 19 and i have seen too much hurt in my life… you will be fine. just remind me never to make you mad.

    the comic very funny i saw this coming. lol

    The more lingual you are, the better nowadays. It’s hard, when you do not so well with learning languages!

    ladywolf17: great effort! Such act is the first step towards wisdom; and yes, decisions like these are tough to maintain but when we do, we happily know we are humans and can use our willpower to take over the hard times!

    Calvin: dang, dad will have to lie down on the floor to read the newsppr.

    Hobbes: keep calm and just read the manual in all 3 langs ok!

    Ladywolf, your father sounds like a very wise man. These days, life seems to be cheap and people are all to willing to shed others blood. That you showed the restraint and wisdom not to is commendable and a testament to your fathers training. I would suggest being alittle more careful about who you hang out with, though, and if someone you are around starts being belligerent, it’s usually best just to leave before things come to blows. Keep up the good work, I’m sure your father is proud of you.

    a genius wrote the instrution in 3 three languages? or it was just messed up by the translation machine? No 6-yr-old could read the instruction Im afraid. PG level…Parent Guide

    @Ladywolf: you did the right thing! you are quite brave and wise. glad that you are fine, keep it up!

    Ladywolf17 fell asleep on my shoulder. Thank you all for your comments she needed to know that there are people in this world who care for one another. thank you for being understanding and for being her friend. Now I have to skip work and talk to the other girls parents. They must be pretty mad that their daughter has a broken nose. You know I as a single Parent try to teach my daughter that violence is not the answer to any problem. And that fighting should be used only if it is necessary to defend yourself. My daughter was scared because she had never been in this situation before. But I am proud of her for the way she handled her self today. Wish me luck in talking to the other girls parents. I’ll let you all know how it all turns out.

    Now as for Calvin, maybe next time you’ll wait for your dad to help you build the model.

    As a model maker, I can empathise completely with Calvin!

    Ladywolf…same thing happened to me on Friday (almost). Guy pulled a knife on me (I’m 49)…anything is acceptable to preserve your own life! I just ran away!

    ladywolf17 Defending yourself when attacked is quite legitimate. No question there. Probably only you know whether breaking her nose was necessary but I doubt anyone would fault you for it. Since you apparently had the upper hand and were in no eminent danger after you flipped her, to kill her at that point would have been murder, not self defense. So yes, you chose well.

    However, I would urge you to be extremely careful regarding this person. You probably have an enemy for life who may be obsessed with getting revenge. And if she pulled a knife on you once with little provocation she probably won’t hesitate to do it again if she gets an opportunity.

    Only you really know your situation, how much “face” she lost and what it means to her, how dangerous to you she will be, and whether it would be prudent to inform the police about the incident. In any case, don’t let your guard down. I doubt she will be grateful that you spared her life.
