The unknown customer was asking for sushi, but the store didn’t sell it. He kept on insisting to buy sushi even though the owner repeatedly told him they don’t have it. The customer said, “I told you I want sushi and you told me that you don’t know what I want? That’s bulls**t.”
Khai Wu then jumped in to break up the heated argument. He calmly explained that the store doesn’t sell sushi. But the customer still being petulent and insisting they sell sushi. “They do”, said the guy who appeared to be drunk, from his demeanor.
Near the end of the video, Khai Wu gave up explaining to the guy and asked him to step outside. “Step outside, we can talk”, said Khai Wu who was also walking outside. Wu defused the conflict in a perfect example of how martial arts can help us be better to ourselves, other people and the community.
