I suggest that you work on your sprinting ability. If it looks like someone might want to start a fight with you then running ability is the only way you can win.
Funny thing about fighting in our current times. If you win you will go to jail, civil court, or both. If you lose you will go to the hospital where your (most probable) lack of insurance will cause you financial hardship as well as the emotional and physical pain of losing.
Okay, with that said let’s just look at three basic rules, as that’s all I have time for. When you really have to fight (and those times are very rare, if ever, when you are not looking for trouble) gain some weight. Most big guys beat most little guys. I know, I know, we all have a tough friend who only weighs 90lbs. and he can beat up the world. Okay, there we got the exception out of the way, now focus on the rule. Most big guys can beat most little guys. If you are a big strong guy you now have a huge advantage.
Secondly, most fights have grappling involved. I know, not all fights, save it. Most fights have grappling involved so learn how to grapple. Forget the kicking thing, that usually doesn’t work. I know you saw a guy kick a guy who went flying…but it usually doesn’t work so forget it (some low kicks are actually a good excetion to the rule).
Third, if you have to fight and there is no way out (which means you tried to leave and couldn’t) then I suggest you strike first and hard. Most people who strike first and hard win. I know, not everyone who strikes first and hardest wins, but most do. Remember, we care about the rule not the exception.
Okay that’s it…now go lift.
