    Default Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting!

    Members of the Oireachtas have been given martial arts training (jiu-jitsu) to protect themselves and politicians from angry members of the public.
    They will be better equipped to deal with unruly and threatening people and eject them Leinster house.
    Where were they the night when all those drunken TD's were unruly

    Kung Fu is not much good to you if somebody hits you from behind with the starting handle of a Morris Minor.

    If someone was intent on doing harm to politicos inside the Dáil, you would have to expect from a security pov that they would bring more than their hands...?

    Kung fu is totally different from jiu-jitsu.

    Kung fu is Chinese while jiu jistsu is Japanese.



    The Gracie family from Brazil have refined the jiu-jitsu discipline and created Brazilian jiu-jitsu which has proven to be superior to most martial arts disciplines.



    Brazilian jiu-jitsu techniques are increasingly taught to security, law enforcement agencies and military units around the world.

    Apparently some members of the house may aleady have had training in that area (allegedly).
