See how it says “If I have to”? I’m not running around, waiting with bated breath for the moment I can let strike a nut shot. I just mean, it’s there, it’s in my arsenal, and if I have to protect myself, this one may come out of the bag, depending on the mechanics of the whole thing.
I’m not going to cry if I make it out of a struggle and I didn’t manage to land one in the ‘nads. Just saying that…it’s on the menu. We are assuming here that we’re in a violent situation. I fear for my safety, my life, that someone will rape me. Just like a stomp to the knee or a right cross to the jaw, this might be one of the things I use to defend life and limb, whether it’s mine, or someone else in danger.
I do not expect I will ever understand the bro code that has the “no nut” section in it (no amendment—this is up front and centre), because I have a “me code” that says—don’t start fights with me, because I aim to end them, not to have them.
In my category of “okay, not if you really don’t have to” goes things like eye jabs, and crushing the cartilage of the throat, or tearing ligaments all off. Not this. And I have no apology to make for it. Just…don’t attack me (or take krav with me, where it’s explicitly allowed, nay, encouraged). That’s all. If you can keep your hands off me without an invitation, I likewise promise to keep my hands (and feet, and knees) off your nuts unless asked. We’re responsible adults. We can do this.
Which makes me wonder—am I allowed to use a cockpunch to an attacking third party if it is to save your life, or save you from being raped or any other serious physical attack? Can I do it for you, although you don’t want me to do it to you?”
That is for sale at Locher’s by the way. I do own it, and like it very much. Gimme a heads up if you see a sale, eh?
