Ok, So this guy who doesnt like me, hes been threatening to start a fight with me and use my martial arts status against me to try and get me arrested. He also knows I am on three years unsupervised probation. I definately don't intend to start a fight with HIM but what if he gets me to a point where i HAVE to defend myself? I've been thinking that if he tried to hit me, I would try and go for a submission, or a pin and just exhaust him. I hit very hard and it wouldn't be difficult for me to maim him, and i don't like the idea of pulling a punch because that increases my risk for injury. This guy is willing to put himself in danger just for the chance that i might be locked away. I'm pretty sure if use my above mentioned strategy I would be ok in the eyes of the law, but what do you guys think? What if cop cars were to come up while we were going at it, and he accuses me of starting everything? Also, can you get in trouble for making someone pass out with a choke? And should i notify the police about this kind of threat? Also keep in mind I live in Yuma Arizona. Are there ways online to look up local laws?
