Do you have to be angry to be able to win in a streetfight? Like if someone is filled with fury and wants to attack me and im unable too make myself angry to want to fight but i cant run away.
Can i still be able to kick his ass if i fight without being angry? Will i be in a disadvantage? Maybe even perhaps at an advantage in some way?

More streetfight nonsense! No you don't,but it' better to try and not participate.

You want to fight? Why? What do you have to prove?Why can't you run? Strange questions!

I think it's better to keep your presence of mind than be filled with rage.

Emotions cloud your mind and remove all tactical ability. You cannot exploit a weakness when you are enraged because you are too caught up with your own anger.

Do yourself a favour and keep away from streetfighting, it's probably illegal in your country and really it's just plain stupid. If you have to defend yourself, do so with the aim of escaping danger, rather than 'winning' the fight.

I have learned to, and practise fighting with no emotion whatsoever. Self restraint without emotion requires a high level of discipline. I do very little if any sparring in a dojo situation, any fighting that i do, is self defence on the street. If you are angry you get sloppy and outpace yourself. It is best to achieve a state of outward vision.

Do you need to be in love to have sex?

Ooops, sorry, Sgt.Sanchin31.

Read Musashi's Book of 5 Rings. All the answers are there.

Angry is a bad thing, this usually means that the angry person will do things without thinking, when im angry i dont think at all and do stupid things, but as i'm getting older im learning to calm myself and not get hotheaded, i've got into one fight in the past year and was as calm as i possible could, my friend was worked up (over a goal ... that he didn't score.. ) anyway he just flew at me and i(with no MA experience) was able to just deflect his attack and just counter his attacks with ease, he tired and i just seized the opportunity to strike, i took him down with a simple leg sweep, wrapped his arms round his back and talked to him and he calmed down.

In my opinion I can fight best when I have a controlled anger or sense of righteous indignation. If you can focus your anger it can help you. In other words you are fighting for a cause that you believe in. However, blind rage will get you hurt or killed. Uncontrolled anger will diminish your fighting skills and thinking ability. I have felt a certain amount of fear before a situation but then reach a point that I no longer fill fear and I just react. That's why I believe in doing all you can to avoid a confrontation because if you HAVE to fight then you will know you're right and you will fight better. I believe that if you have the moral high ground you will fight better. If I tried my best to treat someone right and take some crap in order to avoid a confrontation then if I get backed into a corner I'm going to be ruthless, I know it's not my fault, I did my best to avoid the problem.

Intrepidinv1,
Almost spot on.
As MAs we should all be angry at someone that has caused us to use our skills.
Just because you are angry doesn't mean you should lose control. There is a big difference.
However, do not underestimate blind rage.
Blind rage is one of the most fearsome things you can witness.
A neighbour of mine, a guy of about 9 stone, fought off 4 Police officers in blind rage. It eventually took 7 to get him under control.
It's all about adrenaline and how you use it.

Very good points. I guess I was thinking of the right side of things considering blind rage. This guy was obviously a law breaker and was under the influence of blind rage. So it had a negative outcome here.
