    Yesterday my son was on his way home from work, when he got involved in a road rage incident.

    Seems someone had a case of the ass on I-25 and forced him to pull over on the side of the road about 5pm in traffic. Now mind you, he is a big big kid. I stand about shoulder height to him, so he is a full head taller than the old man II'm roughly 5'8" tall.

    So the guy gets out, he has a tire beater club (this is where it gets good) the boy is a black belt in Kung Fu San Soo.. so when the guy comes up and wacks his rig with the tire beater, Jake gets out and he is not happy.

    The guy threatens him with the tire beater, and my kid just tore him a new ass hole. The state police pull up sometime later, and have to call an ambulance for the guy who can't even stand up after that ass whoopn'. My kid didn't get cided. Came on home safe.

    I fear that guy got the lesson of his life. I've seen what they do and its not sport karate! I'm sure that getting hauled off in the scoop and swoop, having your car towed away certainly isn't a good ending.

    Thing is, my kid is a gentle giant and fighting is not something he goes around doing. They refrain from that, but don't back down. I guess he thru the guy against his car, then body slammed him hard.
    Serves him right. Lucky the guy didn't have a gun, my kid could have really hurt him bad.
    Asshole road rage guys.

    I wager your son will have to go to court over it even though he was well within his rights.

    If he gets a good judge, they may slam the other guy with some time and a fine, so it'll be worth it.

    I'm sure he will, but a few folks pulled over and someone called the cops, so there are a couple of witnesses. The thing is, he didn't get weird over his vehicle. He responded after the guy threatened him, then attempted to use the tire beater. So it should stand as self defense i would assume.

    I'm glad it wasn't me. I'm armed and not sure how I'd respond to someone violently approaching me with a weapon that could kill me. I'm either going to kill him or run around the car with him chasing me till the cops come.

    The guy had a weapon so I think your kid will dodge any legal action for defending himself. At least I hope so. Never know these days.

    I know a guy who is a practitioner in Kung Fu San Soo. That stuff is the real deal.

    Yes it is. “Back in the day” I was training Brazilian Jui-Jitsu at a Kung Fu San Soo academy. I’d show up early and catch the last half hour or so of the Kung Fu guys working out and the techniques they practiced were brutal.

    I think it all depends if your kid stopped when he was no longer "threatened" or if he kept beating the idiot until the cops showed up.

    The thing is that a black belt (to my knowledge) has their hands registered as weapons right?????

    I've never seen him involved in a fight. At least he does not go around asking for it.
    I have seen him do an Al Bundy on a drunk at the door at a bar where he works as a bouncer on Saturday nights here locally. But he simply escorted him out.
    Wrong.

    Would not matter anyway. The boy would be justified even in shooting the man if risk of great bodily harm or death could result.

    When he tested for his black belt, one of the things he had to do, was fight two opponets with the hands behind his back, using only feet, knees shoulders etc. They don't do high kicks or any of that, and they do not slug it out. They move in, instead of away, inside the storm, then take you down, and follow you down so you don't get up.
    This is the actual school he goes to in Longmont, Colorado.

    These folks don't fool around.

    What did your son do to warrant this exchange?

    It doesnt take much these days and yes, luckily for everyone involved, he wasnt carrying.

    Defense expert or not, these things are best avoided. I'm glad your son came out alright in this (and kicked ass).

    I didn't ask him what started it Hack, but i avoid I-25 like the plague because its full of really stupid drivers. Really stupid.
    I can tell ya in his 84 explorer, he probably wasn't cutting in and out or speeding. That thing is on the short list.

    I'm missing how he forced him to pull over. Idiot on the road like that you lose them (exit, slow down, whatever) and or call 911.

    Because the smart move, is to not be pulled over so the altercation can ever start. Who knows WHAT the other person is hopped up on? And, I'll just flat out say it, your SON is lucky the other guy didn't have a gun, and start firing the moment your son stopped, got out of the car, blasted away before your son could close the distance. That altercation could have ended in many different ways all bad for your son. Heck in many municipalities, if a road rage incident ends in a physical altercation like this, BOTH are arrested.

    Nothing. Nothing warrants going after someone with a tire iron.

    He pulled in front of him in the right lane with traffic on the left with nothing to do but stop. Nowhere to go around. Thats how a couple of other drivers stopped too i guess.
    I just heard that he got stopped by a geek and didn't get out until the guy wacked his fender with the tire beater.
    I didnt press much beyond that. He's 37 years old. He is the boss now.
