Jonathan Posted June 23, 2008 Share Posted June 23, 2008 Since you apparently think you could hold your own against KimboI think you guys are being more than a bit hard on Virginia. Taking care of one's self on the street against the average mugger doesn't require that one be able to "hold your own against Kimbo". The average man is 5'8".I've been basing my comments on Virginia's claim:"If I fight properly, I won't get hurt -- even against a guy three times my size."Kimbo is less than three times her size. And it's not just a world-class bas-ass like Kimbo who would hurt Virginia very badly. It's almost any physically healthy male close to that size.Look, I don't doubt that Virginia's got some skills. The point is simply that her hubris crosses over into fantasy.There are a lot of variables here and you're kind of assuming the worst here: You're putting Virginia up against a huge, world-class fighter with a personal grudge against her and the will to fight to the death. Is THAT realistic?Again, I'm putting Virginia up against bad-assed opponents based on her comparing the effort put in by some of her male karate opponents to "a REAL attack, by a very eager, angry man," which is bullshit.J Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
