    Straight and to the point, no BS. Thanks. Anyone who would be a student of the martial blade would also be well served to be a student of human anatomy. There are so many ways to eliminate the threat a person represents without eliminating the person. I would say always attack the problem not the person. Even though that may mean damaging the person that damage must morally be the minimum necessary to eliminate the threat. Example: a jab to the rotator cuff and a jab to the carotid artery will both stop someone from further attacking you but one is much more likely to end the perpetrator's life. I get that we don't always get a choice in a given situation, but we should always pick the least damaging one available at the time.
