I need some help. I have some serious enemies in a city I will be going to soon. I do practice some martial arts for sport but this is more serious and could easily become life threatening if handled incorrectly. It will not be a fair fight where one guy will attack me with his hands. The attack will most definitely involve more than one person and they will have weapons, whether it is a gun, bats, knives, I don't know. The intention will be to hurt me. They are after me and there will be a confrontation eventually. I can't keep avoiding it.
The good part is, they think I don't know or even if I do there is nothing I will be doing about it. They MOST DEFINITELY don't see me as a threat. I am going to use this to my advantage. They think I will not strike back and just comply with anything they say or do. If they can't hurt me there, they will try and take me on gun point or something similar.
There are a lot of things I need to take care of and will be out and about the city a lot. I won't be able to avoid it.
I do own guns, but I am hesitant to carry them because I don't want to escalate a situation, and I don't want to have to shoot someone and then have a murder charge on me. I want to handle this without having to shoot anyone. I am not trying to be heroic here, or do anything fancy. I just need to get this job done without getting seriously injured. Going to the authorities is not an option.
I plan on carrying Mace with me at all times. That is an excellent weapon to have since it won't kill them, but will help me disarm them or at least keep a few guys busy will I fuck a couple of them up. Hand to hand combat is not a problem. I am far stronger and better trained than any of them. They are not trained fighters. They are mobsters.
Few months back I had gone and there were many times where the confrontation could have happened. They came looking for me, but every time I hid and managed to avoid it. But the thing is, it has got to happen. Without the confrontation, this will never stop. Once I strike and hurt them in a confrontation, things will change. They will begin to fear me and from there I can handle it. Right now, I am in a very weak position. However, post confrontation I don't need help or advise. I will deal with the consequences.
I need help preparing for this situation. I am obviously very nervous, which is why I am writing this. I was hoping you could direct me towards some books. I read the 33 strategies of War by Greene but that is not helpful to my situation because I am not attacking. I will be the one getting attacked. Do you know of any books that cover maybe frame of mind I need to be in or something that could hep my situation?
I am going to have one shot at this, and I need to do it right. They will come hard at me, and I have the element of surprise on my side. Not in their wildest dreams will they expect me to retaliate. This nightmare has gone on too long.
ps. I would appreciate if you did not ask any details of me. Obviously I will not share my situation in any more detail. I really thought about a lot before even posting this. But I figured, power is in numbers and I bet you guys will be able to direct me better than I can on my own. Please let keep the discussion on my questions and developing a strategy to help me rather than being inquisitive about my situation. I did not type this for entertainment purposes, as it is a serious situation. Thank you
