Hi Everyone,
I was talking with a training partner last night about this and thought it might make a good thread. (hopefully it hasn't already been done. If so, I apologize.)
So, let's hear your favorite de-escalation or even fight starting/ending quotes, real life or fictional... it's all good.

I'll start with this one I heard from my first instructor in a bar:

"Look man, I don't want to hurt you, and you don't want to be hurt. So, how about you just walk away and call it a night?"

And the guy walked away! Maybe he misunderstood what was said, but I think otherwise. My friend is a seasoned fighter who has always just loved to fight. He is the nicest, most laid back guy, looks like a surfer or somehting. But, he has a way about him that's hard to describe. I sent my supervisor to the school once to see about enrolling his son. After, he told me, "He is a really nice guy, always smiling. But, something about him also seems like he'd just kill you if he wanted to." It's just confidence, I guess.

My favorite fictional quote?
"Taylor: "500? 500 fights, that's the number I figured when I was a kid. 500 street fights and you could consider yourself a legitimate tough guy. You need them for experience. To develop leather skin. So I got started. Of course along the way you stop thinking about being tough and all that. It stops being the point. You get past the silliness of it all. But then, after, you realize that's what you are. You learn a lot of things on the way to 500...none more important than this.." <headbutt> and the a$$ whoopin' ensues. Vin Diesel grin


Ok, let's hear yours. Short and sweet or a little bit longer. Once again, it's all good.

Here's one that's going to date me (not like the Dirty Harry quote doesn't , but that flick still gets airplay on TV enough).

"I'm going to take my right foot here (tapping right leg) and I'm going to kick you on this side of your face here (tapping opponents right cheek), and there's not a Damn thing your going to be able to do about it!"

Tom Loughlin: Billy Jack

It my date both of us VDJ, but I believe the quote was,

"I'm going to take my right foot here (tapping right leg) and I'm going to WHOP you on that side of your face (points at Boss man's left cheek), and there's not a Damn thing your going to be able to do about it!"
-followed by one nicely placed right leg outside kick, or inside-out crescent, or however your school chose to name that kick in English, that lays the boss man out flat. (courtesy of Bong Soo Han)

Just being picky. I just watched it. wink And, being a Hapkido guy and movie freak, I've got it pretty much committed to memory. Plus the whole idea of telling someone you're going to "whop them", adds to the whole time frame issue. grin

But, great one, it didn't even cross my mind when I started this. But, then I was also looking for real life stories more than movie... they're all good though.

Hit Girl from kickass when the crushed car, with the mob thug still in it comes out of the machine and she says, "What a d******." It was a pretty funny moment.

"Whop" maybe correct but he IS hitting the guys RIGHT cheek as they are FACING each other. If he said left side in the film then they messed up the verbage.
