Chi it doesn't matter how big the attacker was unless you want to try to analyze the effect of Crabs sloopy hook and how to make it more powerful in hindsight.

That hooks gone and done for I'd work the heavy bag and striking pad preparing for the next one. Because ain't nothing you gonna do now but whine and complain about the hook used. Its like a spilled glass of milk, lets clean it up so the next one is more useful the next time. Add a kick to the groin for me, thats like dunking a Oreo cookie, soft in the middle.

How big the attacker was doesn't matter a very small man can hurt you bad. If he order sh%^ he should eat it.

In hindsight the hook could have been better, but it worked so it was a sufficent until the next time. Imho.

If I could just put in my thoughts on this.

"Leo_E_49" mentions that if physical confrontation occurs you've done something wrong. I don’t necessarily think this is true. Sometimes, if someone’s that determined, nothing you can do or say can defuse the situation. However I do agree that on this occasion avoidance would have been possible. However, I not going to be that critical of your choice to reaction. You drew the line at a certain point which is perfectly acceptable. You have to draw the line somewhere as, for example, you wouldn’t watch while somebody murdered your family. Yes that’s an extreme example but it demonstrates the point. Maybe next time you'll draw the line somewhere else.

As a few people have said, a key part of training must be pressure testing.

Train hard

Next time you should be careful coz you'll never know what might happen to you. And you should have a self defense weapon with you, it will help you defend and protect yourself when you need it most.

Amen to keeping your trap shut. The odds are usually against you when you mouth off or enrage the punk in any way. However, you forgot to carry a key chain pepper spray, so you were not really prepared. I literally walk around with mine in my hands when I feel the time is right, though as you point out, you never know when you will be attacked, so it's mandatory you walk around with your pepper spray in your hands, ready to use at a moments notice. Or am I being paranoid?

i had about 30 -35 years in the martial arts, before i realized
the majority of my training in self defense.i learned prior to martial arts training... i was a street fighter..in the projects..alleys..poolhalls.. bars...where ever....in a major city.. numerous times rated as the #1 murder capital in the usa......i was used to fighting....way way to many fights ..well over a hundred..but i had been there.. felt the pressure...learned to relax..it took a while....its nothing like the dojo ..etc.....i had 7-8 years experience fighting.. faced tire irons..beer bottles..been cut..so when i was in japan ..sparring with higher ranked people in the late 60's..i would fight with an intensity that the others did not have.it was hard to tone it down..which i was asked to do..so i have told my students over the years ..all that training can shut down ..so try to be as realistic as possible in your training.. cause when someone is trying to scramble your brainpan he doesn't give a damm how much time you have spent in the dojo..

haha good job on the quick feet of running away, if you really don't think you could handle yourself against someone then i suggest you keep your mouth shut and use the fact that you got pushed around/cussed out as a fuel to become stronger faster and more skilled in fighting so you could defend yourself against people like that in this world. You won't always get lucky sometimes in situations like this you will need to fight back so more you learn better you are! Goodluck

It's all situational awareness, thinking ahead, and throwing away your pride (MUCH easier said than done needless to say). Situational awareness being the most important part, as it allows you to notice options and possible threats before they come about.
Sorry I'm never on anymore, half the time I live in my turret, the other half I'm o nthe phone with my poor worried wife. laugh

I know a lot of people here might say that marital arts training might be your best defense, however, we have to say a simple, $15 pepper spray that you keep on your keychain can stop several attackers at the same time, without putting a .45 through their head & having to deal with the Coppers.
