Sometimes you never know what will be helpful. Here's a fellow whose hobby enabled him to prevent an attack . Good job !
Good for him that an activity he thoroughly enjoys worked out to stop a tweaker robbing an old guy. When you train in a skill like sword or knife combat or a sport like baseball or tennis the established moves become slick and fast. I watch kids on my 9year old baseball team go from ducking away from good pitches at first then weeks later to swinging with intent for base hits. In the brain neural pathways are built and strengthened by enjoying and repeating a behavior so that it gets easier to do, dopamine, serotonin, synapses firing hopefully as they should. Good habits, bad habits, language, knife sharpening, sports skills, hand to hand fighting, TV remote skills, video games, addictions, everything.....they all get drilled into our brains. The robber was not expecting to get his arm trapped and weapon taken away....hahhaaa on him.
