To be truly primal one must not pick the fruit flies out of the wine. It adds protein and a delicate flavour. And the wings make a slight shushing sound if the fly is still trying to fly. ;)
Self defence is extremely important, my kids all take Kung Fu and they are learning about much more than how to physically defend themselves (though not much about bears, they took Scouts for that). They are also learning about dealing with bullies, anger management, conflict resolution (in a non-physical way) and stress management just to name a few. I hope that what they learn in the Kwoon spills out to the rest of their lives, in fact I'm sure it does even if they don't see it.
