>Niven said the same thing about Humans and the Kzin even having a man who, after his family was killed, training to be able to fight Kzin bare handed.

He mentioned a group of fighters - "The Hellflare Boys" - trained to
take on Kzin in single combat.  Referenced in the story "Flatlander".
Probably mostly Jinxians.
I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a
man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.
