mma fighters are NOT going to stop utilizing leg kicks, nor will they be banned because a couple of people have happened to break their legs while kicking. thats just dumb.

a boxers break hands (or get "boxers fractures") somewhat regularly, they dont stop throwing bombs right?
he stated incorrectly : Will cops stop working, because a few get killed a year? Will people stop signing up to join the military, because people get killed?

that is a moot point. clearly people are not stopping enlisting in the military, or enrolling in the police/fire academies because a some military, police or fire fighters die/get killed each year.

its an idiotic idea that they would.

How do you figure? I had a friend who went to John jay city college in NYC for his criminal justice degree so he can be a cop. He went to the police academy and graduated and on his first day on the job he could not get himself to walk into the police station and report for duty.


A good portion of people don't become police officers and military due to the danger involved.


Me myself I like big tiddays!!!!

It's conceivable that some fighters might be more apprehensive, but I don't think that we will ever be able to notice any marked decrease in leg kicks. They are an integral part of mma, and sometimes a fighter's best (and only realistic) path to victory is to attack the legs of his opponent.

the fact that we have an all volunteer army/police force/fire fighting force is proof enough that many many many people will still take these jobs regardless of the inherent risk of death or debilitating injury. because your buddy didnt have the intestinal fortitude to actually live up to the commitment that he agreed to in enrolling and graduating from the police academy says more about your friend than it does about the job imo.
as a former soldier, i find people who would desert, or quit some of the scum of the earth. when you commit to something as serious as the military, or first responders you do so knowing full well what you are signing up for.

Easy, buddy. People have the right to change their mind. It's called free will.

Sure they do, and in the choice to attend the academy, he filled a spot that someone else who actually has the intention of fulfilling the oath and commitment he made.

I was raised to stick with my word and my commitments.

Maybe it's better that this person "changed his mind" when he did, before he cost the safety or life of another person while in the line of duty.

Free will, changed mind, bs answer.
