"DeKalb County police say Lenix, 28, had car trouble and asked a man for help at the drive-in movie theater.
Police said that man was Quentric Williams, who pulled out a gun, shot Lenix and then took off."


I get mad too when people talk during movies.

Can the shooter claim stand your ground law? I mean he probably would have lost a fist fight.

Oh my god, I'm actually in before Indiana Jones shooting a scimitar-weilding badguy.

At melee distances? A martial artist has a chance to pull the weapon away. But outside of that, they're just as vulnerable as any other fool in a bath robe and flip-flops.

I'm more upset that police giving chase got in an accident and killed another innocent bystander. At some point police pursuit is more dangerous than just catching the guy later.

Nonsense. Tae Kwon Do is all about tippy tappy light contact point sparring kicks while your hands dangle uselessly at your sides.

If you sufficiently focus your chi you can deflect the bullets outside of hand to hand range*.

A sword, knife or bare hands is often more effective at indoor combat ranges if the pistol is holstered. The 21 foot rule is still really more of a guideline.

In a vacuum, it's a pretty fast and dynamic sport (even if step-change pichagis do look like some kind of bizarre hoedown dance). Against people who are trying to hurt you and are allowed to punch you in the head? Grats on your jumping and shouting classes, I guess.

Quentric Williams....

Hanging is too good for him!

Burning is too good for him!

He should be torn into little pieces

and buried alive!

I will kill him! Kill!!

Kill!!

I'm guessing there was a little more of an exchange than is described in the article. Bad ass karate guy probably got in a posture at some point before he was shot.

Not saying it wasn't murder but I wouldn't be shocked it there was more to it. Someone with that training just doesn't take shiat without responding.

You mean this explanation of events makes no sense?

"DeKalb County police say Lenix, 28, had car trouble and asked a man for help at the drive-in movie theater.

Police said that man was Quentric Williams, who pulled out a gun, shot Lenix and then took off."


Then again, that guy last week punched someone into a coma for complimenting his rims. Maybe people are just very sensitive about cars these days.

When I took TKD a while ago, our instructor told us it was an old martial art developed by the South Koreans predominantly to kick officers off of their horses.

From my experience with the martial art, you would be correct that it is fairly ineffective in close quarter bar fight scenarios.

And the subliterate fool who shot him probably thinks he has "honor."

Despite randomly murdering someone who just wants a bit of help to be about as dishonorable as you can get without becoming a partisan politician or upper management in a business.

Ding. Flying kicks make for neat posters and fun board breaks (for the kicker, not the holder) and that's about it.

Spinning hook and roundhouse* kicks can be done in place and can be pretty effective if they hit - which they ought to if you use any speed. You don't need a lot of room beside your target for those. Room *between* you and your target is usually at a premium in actual fights, so unless you can create the time and distance you'd need to make a kick effective, well... yeah. A martial art based primarily on kicking won't do much good when modern-day fighters all want to ground and pound.

*A hook kick is a horizontal kick that hits the opponent with your heel through the bending motion of your knee. A roundhouse kick, in TKD, is a horizontal kick that hits with the flat or the ball of the foot after a straightening motion of the knee. The spinning, horizontal, straight-legged hit everything in a five mile radius kick that usually comes to mind when people say 'roundhouse' is more correctly called a wheel kick. Wheels can be put on heavy objects to help them move, and are therefore useful. Wheel kicks, not so much."

I am, perhaps, a chinchilla, by fur if not by DNA. I wouldn't claim the full title, however. Chinchillish might be a better description.

that's Olympic style. There are a lot of different tournaments with different rules on contact. I did 2 full contact fights in Baltimore and considered it a victory I left the ring without bleeding or anything broken except my pride.

Yep. Two or three in the Kansas City area. They aren't that popular, but they get enough business from teenagers and families alike that some can still stay in business.

Same, I know people that loved this movie and couldn't figure out why? I guess it's for people who thought the Matrix was okay, but needed to be less believable with a worse storyline...
