I went into the city centre with my missus and a few mates for a bite to eat and a few drinks @ the 'Mail Box' Brum

When we finished eating we decided to go to one of the bars that looked fairly lively in a way if you get my drift 'plenty of decent looking women' laidback music etc

Anyway we went in ordered a round of drinks and, and a few minutes later the 3 females with us went to the toilet as they do, and when they got back they all seemed a little shocked and annoyed at something, so as the lads enquired what was wrong, they said someguy groped one of the girls on their way to the toilet

The other lads that was with me seemed pretty [censored] off and was asking her to point the lad out who groped her so they could sort him out.

Anyway about 30 mins later all had calmed down, when all of a sudden the guy that groped the girl, came over to apologise to her in a very drunken manner, claiming he didnt mean it etc, it all got a little nasty the usual pushing and shoving but NO more than that, the bouncer came over and grabbed the guy and threw him out

At 11.30 we decided to down our drinks and go home, so we went and put the girls in a taxi and just as i closed the taxi door a heard the sound of bottle smash and land somewhere near me, as when i turned around i felt the glass under my shoes, then the guy ran at me and i just kicked him in the knee and he dropped to the floor so i then stamped on his ankle and then the lads I was with all got on our toes and ran off

I wish as soon and the 'groping' incident happened we should of either of left the bar or told the bouncers/staff etc

On a side note those taxi drivers sure do accelerate pretty fast if any trouble comes near there car

Well, this kind of event is always unfortunate but it could have been a lot worse... For instance that bottle could have landed on your head . Of course it would have been better if the whole thing could have been avoided altogether, but since it did happen, I would just be grateful it didn't turn as bad as it could have. From your post, I don't think you did anything wrong...

I still cant believe how fast it all happened and I never felt scared until we began to run away, then it began to sink in and I felt scared of what couldve happened,

It even put me off my late night pizza,

I take back what I said about that night, that "it could have been worse".
THIS is the summum of horror .

Kung_fu_eyes

I applaud you I had similar issue last year where I had to defend a girl who was pinned against the fence on the floor who was being punched and kicked by her drunk boyfriend just as he was about to kick her in the head. Its on a post in here somewhere.

You reacted the way you train instinctively and you'll remain on a high for days after.

I recommend keeping away from the bar for a few weeks and also (sucking eggs time) always be on an Amber mind status when you're out as you could have been bottled on the head.

Finally, I am proud to be associated with you as a fellow Martial Artist well Done my friend.

Most martial artists learn early on that an approaching opponent has to lead with a knee as he comes forward.It is a perfect target.Experience allows it to be struck without even looking down.The great part is the bad guy will not be chasing you after his knee is damaged.It's nice to know your training provided you with an instant response. GOOD ON YOU KUNG FU EYES!

defending women, one of the most honourable reasons to fight in my book. nice touch, a kick in the knee as perceived with JKD, and if anything relates to JKD, I LIKE IT. good on ya mate, though i would've liked to kick him in the nuts when he was down, just a little personal touch, lol.
