Even if the martial artist were to be inches shorter and lighter than the individual who is your typical average person, would that still be cowardly?
Would that be the same as if that bigger opponent bullies someone weaker and unskillful and obviously wins?

A real martial artist is taught restraint, and compassion for all life, and more importantly to never have to use their teachings if they can get away with it. If someone is in martial arts and using their teachings for bullying, they are not being taught properly/and or are a horrible person. Martial arts isn't just fighting, it incorporates philosophy, and life lessons... at least, mine did. then again I didn't learn common styles of martial arts taught in America like Karate (more of a discipline than martial art)... My master once said, a true martial artist can win a fight without ever lifting a finger.
NOW that is completely different than defending those who cannot defend themselves, which is a noble and honorable thing to do. It's also the right thing to do. there is nothing wrong with defending others. callously attacking others is wrong and an abuse of power and or privilege.1
