What sort of advice are you looking for? You need to give more details. Are these "gangs" really gangs, or are they just a bunch of people walking with each other? Are they seeking you out, or are you mouthing off to them? If you're instigating anything, knock it off. If they're chasing after you every time you walk through the city, call the cops.

"whenever I run into a gang in town"

You make it sound like its a common thing.

Like--"I running to the bodaga for a few things, eggs, milk, some soda--also running into a gang later."

Best advice--seriously.

Stop going places and doing things where you would run into a "gang."
If your "running into them" on a regular basis--then your hanging around the wrong places.

Old buddy of mine complained,whined for years that he always got pulled over at the same speed trap, eventually had to sit him down and spell it out--ya got a couple of choices:

B-Find another route
C-Quit complaining

90 percent of real self-defense is common sense.

i understand what your saying , i quote "the best way to block a punch is to not be there in the first place", i have not been mouthing off to these people but there the sort of people that wear there hoods up, and are generally lowlifes, i havent got a big problem i just want some advice in to what i should do if anything should happen, because there are alot of thse people around, they do no beleive in one on one fighting, although i dont like to fight, only in self defense situations
