About 6 o clock tonight I was walking down to the video shop with a friend (japenese exchange student) to get a few movies. Anyway we were walking down one of the ramps leading to the shopping centre in which i noticed two druggo looking guys sitting down and talking. I didnt think much of it so we walked past them, suddenly the scruffy looking skinny one started yelling insults. " come here you [censored] dog hair [censored]" etc. Anyway I didnt want to get in a fight with 2 18 year olds so I walked on without saying anything. Anyway just as we were turning the corner into the shops he yelled anotehr insult, and I turned around and told him to [censored] off. As soon as I said that he ran over and tried to punch me in the face. I am extremely lucky he missed as I think it would have knocked me out, which god knows would have happened. Anyway after he threw the punch I threw a massively sloppy right hook, which connected. We then bolted like we had [censored] ants in our undies and ran into the shops. I was extremly lucky that he missed and I didnt, and that I had enough sense to run away. I admit, to my annoyance, that all my training went to hell and all I could think about was getting away. Im sure I wouldnt be in great shape right now had he not been drunk or whatever he was. Anyway I dont think ill walk around at night for a while, and hopefully you will take care too. I know it sounds silly, but please watch out where you walk at night, you might not be as lucky as me

#1 - Awareness and avoidance.
#2 - Escape/Fence.
#3 - Physical self defense.

That's the three layers of my self defensive principles. If I go past #2, I've done something wrong. If you'd used #1, you'd not have got into the situation at all. If you'd used #2, there would have been almost no chance of him getting a KO, even if he hit you.

This is a perfect application of rule #1.

yeah I didnt really expect his reaction! It was kind of stupid now I think back because his friend was messing around with a pocketknife. Like I said though, I got lucky so I cant really complain

Ouchers...Feel for ya. Hard situation to be in. A good example of why stimulus based training comes in handy (or stress training, or flight-or-flight reaction traingin, or wahtever you want to call it )

teh stress yorubody encounters during lethal encounters is very unlike the safe "pressure" you experience in the traiing hall...I've experienced that myself. Dont' give up on yoru traingin tho, just recognize that sometime it will be beneficial to undergo some form of adrenal stress straining. Worked wonders for me (the brain does some pretty amazing things when it realizes its #ss is in a slinger lol)

you didn't expect his reaction!! a guy starts shouting insults at you in an attempt to engage you in a confrontation, you oblige him by telling him to 'go forth and multiply' and you are suprised that he tried to knock your head off.

No, come on now, what you didn't expect was for him to travel that far from his seat to persue you. You fell into the old trap of being a 'remote hard guy'. This involves getting braver/more aggressive in direct relation to greater distance from your target. As a door worker, I can not tell you how many people have threatened all sorts of things from 100 yards away having walked from the doorstep as quietly as a mouse.
DO NOT BECOME ONE OF THESE IDIOTS.

As for 'my training didnt kick in' We have seen you spar full contact remember- your training doesn't even kick in when you are training. Maybe now you can understand why people were so critical of that clip. or maybe not.

Wise up young Jedi, thats one portion of your life's luck spent needlessly.

That sentence should speak volumes to all of us. Thanks for posting this. Funny that we train for years for these moments and instinct still takes over in the clutch. I'm not sure what to do about it, but the knowledge alone is worthwhile.
