Yeah, you got a little skill, you train three or four times a week, your instructor knows a guy-that knows a guy-that ripped some guys style off from a guy that invented ballet-do. Your 6th degree pink belt is your personal barrier from the uncertainty of your abilities, but it also gives you pride when you think about how much it costs to get it soooo... whatever right it's worth it...literally. You ever taste your own blood? Have you ever had a hangover from a meatloaf sandwich "that's recover from knockout"? Street fighting is all about unpredictability and sacrifice, because you may or may not have the confidence in your style to use it to save your life. Oh...you train "ALIVE", o.k., that changes...nothing. The realization that your personality plays a part in your fighting ability is important enough to think about. Weaklings train to get stronger mentally... I mean pay someone to make them feel stronger by telling them that: "yes you have made the cut into the realm of fighters, by attaining this rank" "you can now officially kick ass"...believing this is good if have some fight experience and at least a 3-1 record in street fights... if not, be the b#$ch you really are inside behind that Gi, and own up to the fact that without a street fighters mentality or the ability to adopt it temporarily, will leave you limping away with your pride along with two of your teeth and your ass separate from your person. Guts, you got that killer instinct...yeah I'm working on mine too, I want to not feel sorry for my opponent too, yes- beat him into submission or bloody mess, stab him in the face with his broken Hennessy bottle, break his collar bone, even place one of my fingers into his eyesockets to remove the fleshy ball in it. Those are goals of mine and maybe some of yours too, but you would never admitt to it...not here anyway, not in front of those unforgiving, unforgettful, merciless, attacking, eyes that probe these lines with such eagerness to find flaw and weakness...what does that remind you of? The street. How easy it is to talk sh$t through a monitor, now really read some of the hushpuppy insults and so called beef that exists between some of the members here, yeah...I agree totally, weaklings. I'll stop here, and let it marinate.

Does anyone on here actually train BECAUSE THEY LIKE what they do?

Or is it all about being able to beat people down ON THE STREET?

Serious question.

On the whole eyeball thing - the way I figure, I can only do that if I have positional control of someone. If I have positional control, I don't really see the point in blinding them. Choking them out so they pee themselves maybe, I dunno.

And yeah, I reckon I'd feel pretty bad about blinding someone.

Isn't that normal?

See Joe? That's why you're a real martial artist.

An example to us all.

I train because I love it first and foremost. And I love all of it: line basics, kata, bag work, weapons, stand up sparring ground work etc.

I train self defence to protect myself in the event of an attack. I WOULD be prepared to go to any lengths to save my life or that of another if I could, but yeah I would feel pretty bad if I blinded or seriously injured someone.

I suppose it's a bit like when a clown cuts you up on the road when he has a belly full of beer. If you hit him and write off his car that's his fault. If he died though, most of us would be freaked out.

First of all you posted that message at 11:30PM, stop drinking and thinking. I believe most of the MA people posting here have the "Warrior" mentality when called upon. We/I would do anything it takes to defend myself or family in a situation. DO NOT under estimate some of the people that train in MA, that ass kick'n street killer instinct your talking about combined with MA is deadly to say the least. You sound like you have a chip on your shoulder?

i like your style exceptionist.

"hushpuppys" rofl, is that like a muppet? [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/wink.gif[/IMG]

I have a very good student, that works with me, he wanted to "train alive" so we put the body armour and head guards on, big gloves,

And we stood square to each other and fired out head shots, like western gun slingers..

rang his bell so many times, he was shocked that it was so easy... he was even more shocked when it was his turn and he caught me a few times.
All training does is give you a better chance of surviving a real world violent encounter. it doesnt guarantee that you will walk away in one peace.

I have had literally 100s of fights at work, lost more than 1. it only takes 1 punch to change the course of your life forever, so is it worth the risk, if you can avoid it?

Nice thread, first off, let me say that. I have had my share of actual street/bar fights, and yes I am still here. So to the individual exceptionist2, I would have to say you have some abberant thinking, at the minimum. As for my "street honors", if you wish to know...I have 2 knife scars,(palm of left hand, required 4 sutures, 18 stitches, and a large deltoid scar which required 42 stitches; one 22 shot into my right quadrecep 3 inches above the knee). You are correct in the one assertion: There is a difference between practicing and living within the art. To answer your tirade...I for one will continue to practice, and hope I never have to use it in the manner you suggest.
