How to Become a Menace

There are so many ways to becoming a menace – at work, school, around friends etc.  Nobody likes a menace except for the person who does the menacing so that's really not a good thing.  Now a good menace is one you find in the martial arts because although they, too, may not be liked, it is only because they have superior skill.   

You usually have to visit foreign pastures to test out if you have menacing skills where people don’t know what to expect and hopefully you can catch them completely off guard.   It’s actually a compliment when they start abusing you, tell how ‘stubborn’ and ‘belligerent’ you are (I think my Jiu Jitsu must be working).   

The truth is you can really learn from these types of people and I am not talking about the pest style menace who are of no value to you but just annoying.  Look for the ones who have something to offer.  These people are probably good at what they do and seem to exasperate you because they have a counter for everything you do.  How do you annoy your opponents in the martial arts?  The answer is become a menace yourself by training longer and harder.
