Well one time i was walking down the street at around 9:00 PM Alone (i really should stop doing that) Well i was on my way to a friends house for a game of poker when i decide to take a shortcut through an alley (Yes i've seen the movies about dark alley's but hey im young and stupid i cant help it.)
So im halfway down the alley looking around and looking over my shoulder every 2 seconds when suddenly a large african american man around 6'3 and 200 some pounds comes out of the darkness and pulls a switchblade on me. I almost dropped a load in my pants and started crying before he said "Give me anything you got punk"
This was the first time i had been mugged and i hope it will be the last. Anyways i reached in my pocket and realized i had my brothers pair of brass knuckles on me (i had no idea) Well i slipped my fingers in the holes and turned around and began running knowing he'd chase me. Well i got about 15 feet before he was 2 feet behind me. He raised the knife but i spun around pulling my fist from my pocket and *POW*
I hit him right in the cheek bone and hit him in the center of the chest with my other hand to knock out his breatheing. I kicked him in the love sack and punched him again before he kneeled on the ground and i took off running. I never went down that alley again (nor did i go anywhere even near it now i just get a ride when i need to go to that area) I know i could of been killed and i may have done the wrong thing but atleast im alive.
Usualy i would say if a mugger asks you for cash give it to him and let him be on his way. I just got lucky.[/QUOTE]
More people need to hear this post and assuming you didn't have anything to give him, you did the right thing. Glad you came out of the experience ok and a little wiser. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]
