Old thread but...first thing, register a complaint with the police. Tell so and so has been threating me with physical violence. The police will more than likely not do anything about it, but if something goes down and you end up in court, it MIGHT help.

I often find that people who claim to be able to "Kick your ***" oftentimes can't and are just using that threat as a way of gaining control over you, however little it may grant.

all you can do, until he actually attempts the ***-kicking, is find the flaws in his verbal abuses, throw them back at him and tell authority figures what's going on.

If he approaches you menacingly, with a clear intent of starting something (clenched fists are a popular cue, as is a dragonball-z-esque-furrowed-brows glare)it is often best to strike quickly, and so that he won't be able to fight back easily. A quick jab or backfist to the nose is an optimal attack for this. if his friends have any mental capacity at all, they'll notice their buddy dropping, and figure it best not to agitate you further.

HOWEVER. Strike only after exhausting all other resources. Tell teachers, parents, adults, etc. Alert anyone in power that there may be a conflict and, although they probably won't do anything, you can use that to avoid trouble, simply because you TRIED to avoid it.

hope I've helped.

I would say the best time is probably when you know he isn't expecting it but find a way to egg him on so you don't in alot of trouble.

You don't want your fight to start out like remember that.

"If I don't take out this thug now, then would I have to deal with him and his "friends" later?"

The sad fact is this thug's friend are likely to become involved regardless.

If you think this kid is going to start swinging, get the first hit. In a street fight hitting first is very important.

When to stike?

First & Last! Just don't swing first if you can help it. Witnesses don't get "preemptive" yet...

If that isn't what I said, then it isn't what I meant

i.e. a swing doesn't guarantee a strike.

Pedantic logic may make you feel better, but does nothing to sway the reader away from the contradiction in your initial post.

That's funny, I thought that the difference between "swing" and "strike" was elementary.

Does anyone here besides Cord not know that there is a difference?
