well at the moment theres a guy about 5ft, im 6ft2 and he has randomly decided to start on me for no reason whatsoever,
i dont even know this guy and havent even done anything to him.
yet when he sees me he starts approaching me arms flailing to make himself look big and thinks hes it.

he does boxing as well and supposedly has a good reputation in it.
thing is he dosent know that i study tae kwon do.
and he doset even know that i study martial arts at all.....i have experience in self defence as well
and this would be my first encounter......thing is he wants me to fight him but theres no chance im going to....this is why he gets angry with me......im a man of peace so what makes people like him try to pick fights with guys like me?

Methinks "Man of Peace" or "Scorpion" may have an unresolved internal debate. The words say "Man of Peace". "Scorpion" says otherwise .

Napoleon complex. Buy him a beer, and settle it over an arm wrestling match.

maybe he chose you as a target because somehow you seem weak to him. (shrug) im not saying you are weak but maybe he perceives you as weak. he might not like something about you whether its the way you hold yourself or who you hang out with or what you do. i dunno, bullies are weird like that. i was picked on because i was skinny. then because i wore glasses. finally it was because i hung out with "weird people"... dont let it phase you. just try talking to him.

Some dude at the YMCA the other day asked to fight me. He said "You the karate dude." and I said "Yeah." He said why don't you fight this boxer here. I knew the ex-boxer he was talking about and he looked at me and said "Who's a boxer." I laughed and just said you don't want to see me fight and he walked away. Both of these guys were taller and MUCH heavier then me but be confidence is what you need. I just made it seem likely it didn't bother me at all.

If he percieves you as weak it may have something to do with your height.
He obviously thinks a) you will definately not fight back and he is trying to look tough by challenging someone so much bigger than him, or b) genuinely thinks he can beat you in a fight and hopes you will fight back so he has the chance to beat you and "prove" himself to be tough.

Either way IMHO he is doing it to make himself appear "tough" and "fearless"
