Not A Good Fighter

This is a story.

A hot headed Karate student asked a senior about the fighting skills of a particular person. The senior replied, "He is not a good fighter."

Filled with confidence, the student went up and challenged this person. When the person refused, the student launched an attack, sure that he could beat him. But with a single punch the person dropped the student and knocked him out.

When he awoke, the student protested to the senior saying, "You said he wasn't a good fighter!"

"He isn't," answered the senior. "He's a great fighter!"

Actually, I have heard about this kind of thing happening. Such a hot headed student is really lucky that he wasn't killed. But this was just a story.
