Most fights are won and lost in your mind before a fight begin , if you feel your lose 9 time out of 10 you will. fear is a good thing if you can learn to use it. just stay true to yourself and do your best and your alway`s when even if the fight was loss.

Fear is being afraid of what COULD happen, not what IS going to happen. If we all focus on what COULD happen, we would be to afraind to simply live.

I try to remnd myself that 9 times out of 10, the opponent is think the same thing. Also, repeated exposure to fearful situations can dull the effects of the stimuli. In psychology, we call this "extinction" and you will begin to feel more at ease, as you become familiar with fearful situations. TRUST IN YOUR TRAINING!

Is it really fear or adrenaline? If its adrenaline, its telling you, you're for action. Giving you extra energy, so use it if you have to. Take a nice deep breath before you do. If it's fear maybe its something you shouldn't do.

"there is always a chance of losing", [censored]. If you go into a fight thinking that then yer gonna get the [censored] kicked out of you. First of all you should'nt just go around fighting people cause now a days you'll get shot or even worse, sued. You should only fight for sport or a serious season. If its for sport theres money on the line and they're are rules, so follow them. On the street ,however, you may find yourself face to face with someone who has full intent to [censored] you up. This means no holds bared and you have got to totally blank out any thoughts of failure. This is'nt a little leauge baseball game, you can't just say "i'll do my best and then will shake hands and go about the day" you have got to go in with the mindset that he will do what ever possible to win. This means you must do the same. That includes bitting, hair and ear pulling,fishhooking,scaching and eye gouging. Don't wait for him to hit you first. If the situation has gotten to the point that you or a loved one is in danger then you have got to to beat the [censored] out the ass hole causing the problem. And once you start you do not stop until he is in the hospital. Then you go to him and kick the [censored] out of him some more. Be prepared to go all the way or don't leave the house.

Internet toughguys are a dime a dozen. I wonder if they will pay the lawyer fees and court costs if some idiot actually takes their advice.

I believe fear is a natural defense mechanism that can be controlled. Those who are brave are not the ones who do not fear, but the ones who control it.

Fear prior to a fight is something natural, instinctive. We all feel it in one way or another, specially when you are a kid. But hard and serious training can make you reduce and control that fear. Sparring is also essential. You control the fear of fighting by... right, fighting!

So go ahead and get messy in the dojo. After all, it's just another human being...

Hanzo, may I add this as well?

There's a big difference between courage and stupidity. Some people will do something stupid when they are afraid, and people think "He's so brave" but most of the time, it's stupidity which was decided and carried out in a split second without much thought.

For example, you're being robbed by a man with a gun. You hand him your wallet, and he walks away. You then decide to run upto him thinking "I'll surprise attack him from behind", he hears you and in act of desperation, shoots you. Now, was that courage or stupidity?

Geoff Thompson has written lots of great stuff relating directly to your point, Hanzo. Although books are in no way a replacement for alive training, Geoff's Fear - The Friend of Exceptional People is an educational read.

I regularly face fear every day when I walk into the school I work in. I was horribly bullied at school and I then turned into a bully. I now work with kids who "bully" me (I am 300lb and 6'2" with a limp through childhood disability) but I face it. That time at school was the worst experiences in my life and it is all relative. When I face a new opponent in my dojo I disregard their belt or attitude and fight to win for me. Fear is a personal thing and you need to find your own triggers. I have never been in a serious violent situation but I wouldn't "fear" one as I train hard and I am no longer afraid of blood or hurting myself. Put me in a box of spiders and I would cry! I know I can and will train myself to appreciate spiders (I held a tarantula and it was an amazing experience) Read Geoff Thompson's books as they are truly amazing. You will ride your own personal journey through pain and fear and it is controllable but only you and you alone can find your fear threshold and break it.
