Ok, hi you all my ferst time posting on this forum... Ok, here it goes.

I was riding my bike and there are older boys blaying base ball I stoped and started to stare, untill a large (fat) boy around 2 years older than( I was 15 and 160 back then) me says.
"What?" I froze
"you got a staring problem?!"
I said nothing (intimidated)
It all escalated form there. he got up in my face and I pushd him. He tryed to tackel me but I sacrafice threw him over. I got up, stunned, and so he tackled me again, this time successfuly. He then procceded to punch me in the nose about 10 times till my nose started to flow with blood. He left and I went hom horrified That I lost to an unskilled ruffian that onely had intimidation and streghnthn on his side!!!

Now A year later I am 170lbs and a much better fighter. I have trained and worked very hard to Defeat him and that kid needs a seriuos humbling. I have also Isolated myself away from other people to train.

When I defeat him I will post again.

I dident beat him yet but I forgot to post some things...

This fight has made me humbler, wiser and less childish, I am a better person now that I know that im not invincable. Pride is ones downfall, I learned that the hard way. I have never told this story to enybody, not even my family. It also made me dout my skills as a warrior and learned that there is a mental side of martial arts not onely physical, If you dont train your spirit you will lose.

In all, that loss has made me stronger both mentaly and physicly, and no one will take advantage of me again.

Any martial artist that has a warped sense of confidence that they can beat every one on the street up, like I did, You are wrong And it may bite you in the butt one day.

BTW; that kid punches like a pu#sy, notice that it took 10 shots to make me bleed!

I had similar humiliating experiences in high school. I lost various fights and won some as well; that's how you learn.

Most martial arts classes (TKD was the one I was taking at that time) don't have anything that simulates the chaos & unpredictability of a real fight. Sparring's usually strict and done with your friends in the Dojo who don't want to seriously hurt you like an opponent on the street would.

Therefore, the only way to get such experience is to be in fights. Once you're out of high school though you face jail time instead of suspension so it's harder & riskier to get real fighting experience.

If you can remember the sense of urgency you felt during that fight, I'd suggest putting yourself in that state of mind when you train. The fancy spin kicks & **** you may use in sparring will only help in a street fight if you've thoroughly mastered them. If you can be in the same adrenaline filled mindset when you train as you were when you got in a fight, you'll be better prepared.

we spar very hard at my shool for just that reason. we dont go 100% on the grappling of course but pretty close to 100% with everything else. so i'm always got a black eye or a fat lip or something. thinking about it i've only gotten in one fight since i began training... pobably 'cause i always look like ive had the bejeezus kicked out of me already...^^ i hope to hear about your success soon rock fight. you shouldnt go around looking to fight, but if your gonna then give 'em hell.

Don't fight him. You have to turn the other cheek. Martial arts shouldn't be used in a way of revenge, but to show the other person you're the bigger man in the picture for walking away.

When I was a kid I used get into a lot of fights for no reason, because everyone didn't treat me the same way everybody else was treated. My mom, all ways took me to church to learn of the ways of forgiveness and loving another person even if they're not in your condition. So, between the ages of 14 through 16 I've trained my mind mentally in the way of Taoism and also read about Bruce Lee and his struggles of life. I took it; grasped it and used it in kung-fu.
Oh, and yesterday I almost got into a fight at school, but I was relaxed and calm. He wanted me to give up the seat , but I didn't. If I were to get into a fight with him I knew I would use the art of detachment and defeat my foe without any way of picking him up.

try me. I've got a handful of fight since kindergarten, some boy tried to get some lego from me but I punched him in the face and he punched me back I punched him again until I pushed him in the ball pool. I was 4 yrs. old that time and had no martial arts training, all I've got is my fists. but now this was different, I was 10 yrs old, 5-foot-1, and a solid 100 pounds, a 15 year old tried to push me into some kinda underground ultimate fighting event he was champion in when he was young, a tried to give it a shot because I know all the kids in the subdivision who were joining and most of them were some of my enemies when I was younger. the guy who convinced me into joining was a master of judo-karate, since I was a student of taekwondo at that time (a white belt), he trained some advanced techniques and my match came, I was pitted against a fat opponent who was an aikidoka, and never been my enemy. She fared well, only that led her out of the ring that's why I won, my opponent became my friend and the guy was angry with me. I was kinda disrespectful and did a technique he taught to me on him, I never agreed to go under him or any of his underground buds anymore, or when they get it, they'll be expecting more.

The few fights I have been in, aren't really worth a great mention. Except one. The sound of breaking bones is a sound that haunts you more or less all of your life. It was a simple fight. Two of as tussling - it was over a game of pool that I had put money down on. It was a simple snatch and grab. Go in, play like a drunkard. Then, being drunk and overly cocky, still play like a drunkard, clean up the table and walk out.

Well, it all worked well up to the point of taking the money and running. This is where it got strange. The guy got up in my face and pushed me back. My back, unfortunatly, hit one of the pillars, it was somewhat of an awkward position, its hard to explain. Lucky for me the person who was angry knew even less about fighting than he did about playing pool. And my friend I could see was moving in to help me by blocking the other guys who wer also going to lay into me.

Well .. it got bad from here.

Ducking the overly exadurated swing, keep in mind I am tall, somewhat lanky I'd say and have more strength in my legs than upper body, I did what I did best. An open hand strike to the ribs pushing my opponent backwards more than anything to gain some breathing, and with any luck. Some kicking room. A second person then assaulted me, luckily I was able to place a good kick to the back of the leg that brought him down and a kick to his shoulder put him down rather well. I was fuming by this point, adrenalin was pumping, my friend was in a fist cuff fight with a third guy and the person I hit in the ribs was laying on the pool table with one arm hanging off the edge holding onto the place I hit him. I was feeling pretty good at that point. A combination of intoxication and adrenalin had put my mind on fire and judgement wasn't a key factor at that point. I got hit across the back with a cue stick. I remember the cracking sound, some blackness, I remember the ground and an outright scream and an almighty cracking noise. Like lighting striking a tree. And then I remember the taxi and my back throbbing like I had just been whipped repeatedly with razorblades.

The rest is a recap from what I was told had happened. After putting the guy I had kicked out, or so I had thought, I turned to help my friend. However the guy I put down had gotten up. And hit me across the back with the cue stick. The cracking noise, I was told. However. Was not the cue stick. It was actually as I had fallen, the first person I had hit, who was lying on the pool table still had his arm hanging off the edge. After I had been hit I stumbled and passed out, falling on the 'elbow toward the ground' arm, effectively snapping it in two. The sound of the 'lighting striking a tree' was not infact the cue at all. It was his arm first snapping then dislocating.

The taxi I later found was actually because the ambulance had taken the guy with the broken arm. The person I had kicked had severe bruising but no dislocation. My back had a blue line across it for a few days. And the fist fight my friend was in ended with a lucky blow from my friend putting his opponent down. That was about the time the bouncer had managed to make it back up the steps.

Later, it was passed off in court as self defence and an accident. No charges wer pressed and I dropped the assault charges deciding not to take it up with the police. I think I was lucky but I'm to this day scared when I fight of breaking something. As the sound was something I can never. Forget.

The only result that fighting has had on me is it made me emotionally dead from doing it. The sound of bones breaking is sick to most people,strange to say though its never made me feel the least bit remorsefull or made me feel anything for that matter,not to say I'm sociopathic or anything but I could seriously injure someone and could care less if I killed them I dont feel those emotions as a result of the violence. I dealt with it constantly and am still dealing with although much less extreme now. Thats all fighting ultimatly does to you is make you emotionally dead to people and cold. I fought often for more then 16 years of my life you name it I've probably been through it, the result is a living hell, could you imagine what its like to be almost emotionless. Thats how it changed me
