This is what I chose to do to give back to my community and others like the one I grew up in. I tutor the children of people I grew up with that are in jail or deceased, due to the way in which we chose to live our life. I assist with college applications, financial aid and scholarships to keep them from making the mistakes I made and their parents or older siblings. The ones coming home if they haven't gotten their GED or HS Diploma, if they choose to I help them find a program.
I am a member of the BKF and I make every effort possible to allow our students to use their training as a positive outlet to give them other options then the streets. I train them to walk away if possible, if not eliminate the threat as quick as possible to get away.
I talk to Sijo Muhammad occasionally and speak with Senior Grandmaster Donnie Wiliams frequently, but I talk to Grandmaster Robert Temple the most about these situations of the street.
The original post is how many instructor and martial artist train to make it through a street situation, whether by avoiding, defusing or combating?
I'm sure there are some on here that have dealt with the streets and I would like to know their experience and do they train for any future occurances?
