The Art of Self-Defense

Sensei later calls Casey to tell him that he has spotted one of the bikers that attacked him. He meets Sensei at a bar and is ordered to go confront him. Casey follows the man, who is very drunk, to a parking garage where he appears to be going to a motorcycle. Casey ends up hitting the man in the stomach, causing him to fall and hit his head on the pavement, causing it to bleed. Sensei then comes out and starts recording the incident. Casey then takes the man's keys and sees that he was going to a regular bicycle, and he runs away in horror. When he gets home, he finds his dachshund on the floor unconscious. He takes him to the hospital, but the doctor tells Casey that the dog died from what appears to be a kick to his ribs. However, there was blood found on his teeth, meaning he bit whoever attacked him. Casey goes back to the dojo and deliberately breaks all the rules (eating, drinking, and wearing shoes on the mat) to piss of Sensei after accusing him of killing his dog. Sensei comes out and denies the accusations before knocking Casey on his back. Casey later goes home to see that Sensei left him a German shepherd with a note to remind Casey that he must establish himself as the alpha, or the dog will rip his throat out. Casey goes for another night class, where Sensei brings him, Anna, Thomas, and Kennith out for a motorcycle run. Casey rides with Anna, who approaches an undercover cop in the same way that Casey was approached earlier. The cop shoots Anna in the leg, and before anything else goes wrong, Casey uses his moves to attack the cop, but he ends up killing him by slamming his head against a fire hydrant. Sensei chastises Anna for not asking the man if he has a gun (just like the ones that mugged Casey). Sensei tells Casey that he has earned a red stripe on his belt for taking a life, and he notes that Anna has one too. Casey takes Anna home, and she tells him that early on when she started out in the dojo, she held back because they were never going to take her seriously as a woman. The champion at the time attacked her in the dressing room, and she strangled him to death with his own belt. She thanks Casey for taking her home but tells him not to return to the dojo.
