Hello Joe,

My son studied the martial arts (1/4 mile away) and the #1 rule is that  
you never attack another for fun or sport.  It is only for self defense.

Break the #1 rule and "master fear" (if he is honorable), will toss your  
son out to the curb, when he learns of the infraction.

This tid bit may come in handy.
