Have I experienced violence? Yep, I HAD a husband who liked to take out any frustration of his on me. He's the reason I started MA, so in a weird way, I guess I owe the #@%$& one. But I told my teacher once I'd like to see the guy try any of his crap on my now. My teacher said he'd like to see that too.

Have you experienced violence in your life? What age were you? Where did it happen? Did you start it? Please respond.




Yes I've personally experience violence, been violently battered and assaulted. For numerous different reasons, some because they were bigger, had numbers just were meaner.

Most of the aggressive actions happened to me personally between the age 7-35 years. As a kid and thru out my teens it was mostly a bully or bullies or older people acting out against what they thought were weaker people or a person they don't like. In my late 20s-35 It was drunks, adults bullies,gangs,thugs,gambler, drug addicts and pimps/hustlers, domestic disputes and violent criminals that either had a problem with me or the job I was hired to do.

As a kid it happen in the neighborhood, just because. As a teen it happen because I was out of the neighborhood, maybe because of a friendly wager, or I was different or just because. This occured in schools, bars/clubs, back yards or walking down the street.

I hardly ever started any of the fights, can't remember many if any that I started. I probably started 1 or 2 because I wasn't a saint by along shot as a kid or teen. If battered as a child you will batter as you grow older until you learn better.

I am a male born in the USA.


Multiple attacks from about 9 until adulthood, or until I stop hanging out at the wrong place with wrong people at the wrong time. Some people just say they are your friend.
Kinda like the Die Hard movie, come on down, we can relax, have a couple drink, laugh cry and BS, then all hell breaks out and you're all alone neck deep in sh%^ !!

That's almost always the main factor in the difference between those that get in fights and those that don't. No fight to be had if you're not there to participate. Leave your ego at home and don't go to those places where everyone knows some one or many people will be looking to flex theirs.

wow i saw like 3 people that answered no. i've never been in a fight. there are only 2 situations where i could even begin to imagine myself in a fight. 1. someone attacks me 2. someone attacks family, friends, or someone who just does not deserve it. Completely passive until one of those two happen.
