    I about peed my pants seeing that. Clever bastid .
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    That'll work, and quite well .

    Of course, a small flip blade no larger than the lighter, inserted hilt deep in the same place under the choking arm, would achieve the same results and last far longer at getting the choker to consider the wisdom of a "back off" position...just my opinion .

    I suppose I'm bad that way...no martial arts skills aside from a very few tricks with a stick or cane, old and slow; I rather like the surprise knife defense...and besides, I always I carry at least two blades, but never a lighter. Smoking is bad for your health, right? .

    In an emergency, all I care about are results.

    Well some pretty good news this week.

    We went over to Cork, Ireland for the ISKA 2019 World Championships. Haakon made weight for the 45kg category for the Junior Muay Thai 10-12 years old. He drew a German in a prelim round who pulled out, so Haakon went into the semi finals. He fought an Irish boy in the semi and won convincingly. On the the final against another German boy.

    Haakon beat the German boy in the final with an overwhelming performance. 10-9, 10-9, 10-9.

    Introducing the New ISKA 2019 World Junior Muay Thai Champion -45kg.

    Very proud father moment. Hard work truly pays off.
