Once Dave had a serious fight with two guys, one of whom received serious injuries, and the other spent several days unconscious. For a fight, the court sentenced the guy to one year probation. He understood that the innate tendency to violence must be curbed and given a “legal” way out. His choice fell on combat sport.
