Need Advise on Serious Situation


#1

Hey guys,

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

What if the "mobsters" read T Nation too? Think man, think.


#3

I recently took the plunge and read the first of the "Twilight" series.

Not as gay as I had previously thought. I'd recommend it.


#4

Ask yourself this: WWHHD?

What would Head Hunter do?


#5

I just searched it and it is a romance book? I'm sorry I don't get it. Are you joking with me or do you actually recommend it?


#6

I'm sorry I am not familiar with head hunter. Who is this?


#7

Make a chili of the mobster's parents and feed it to them.


#8

Oh man. Does this deserve a serious answer or does this seem to trollish?

Motherfucker spelled everything right and used correct grammar, which makes me think it might be serious. And that is a lot of type for someone who's just trying to start an argument. On the other hand, he registered in May, has 2 other posts.... oh man. I'm right in the middle of this.

And Holy- really dude? Twilight? My balls are showing?


#9

Don't go to the parts of the city where you've made enemies, and start leading a less aggressive lifestyle.


#10

I really hope this is some sort of joke. I don't know what kind of advice you expect to get.


#11

Dude, it tells the story of a man, lonely, torn between having to do something and knowing he could get hurt or killed by doing it.

Honestly, it fits perfectly with the OP.


#12

I get it. I'm being mocked.

I don't understand what about my post says I am joking around or that I wanted to "start an argument" (and what would that argument be about anyway?)

It's a straight up problem I have and am asking for advise on a forum that seemed appropriate. Is there some kind of hierarchy that goes on in this forum. Do I need to have a certain number of posts or something to get taken seriously or what?

I can't even believe there is actually doubt whether I am being serious or I am joking around. You think I have the time to sit and make this story up and type it on a forum and then keep checking it to see if someone has responded? --> you must know some weirdos.

If anyone who does NOT doubt my intentions could respond I would appreciate it. I really did write in so much detail to get some kind of direction.

To those of you who think I am messing around for whatever reason, I really don't care. I don't want to waste your time or mine. So just don't come to this thread and post unnecessary comments. I'm sure you have things to do. I surely don't have time to be reading nonsense. I would like to keep my thread serious and on topic. Thanks


#13

Is this really an inappropriate post? Its the combat sports forum. You guys train combat. I have a self defense situation and I'm asking for advice, books, resources.

What about this makes you think it is a joke? I am dead fucking serious. No this is not a joke. I can't believe everyone thinks I am joking HAHA amazing!


#14

Something like that, yeah.


#15

So what's the deal? Did you not pay the loan-shark? Did you quit the gang? Did you screw the local Muslim gang-leader's sister? (they HATE it when you do that, btw).

Why do you have to go to this city? Why can't you just not go? How about while you're in the city, you lay low and not frequent any of the clubs, bars, pool-halls, or other places where these people might be?

"I got to get this mutherfucker for he gets to me" that about sums it up.


#18

okok.

first, let me aplogize greenhopper. you do seem to have a serious situation.

and as i'm sure you know, serious situations call for seriouse measures.

what I would do is buy a neoprene wetsuit. make sure you get it a size bigger than normal b/c you sound like you're oging to have to wear it for a while.

cut off the hood area.

put a chainmail suit ontop of the wetsuit. the wetsuit will help keep the chainmail from cutting you as well as insulate you for the next step.

attach a car batter to the chainmail suit. include an on/off switch in the circuit. you can even throw in a LED if you're feeling dangerous.

now put your street clothes over the chain mail. i'd suggest a rip away shirt (or button down) and some rip away pants NBA style. the car battery can go in a backpack.

now you can walk around town, totally undercover. as soon as those motherfucker come out, rip all your clothes off, scream 'HOLY MACARONI MOTHERFUCKERS' and charge/tackle them while simultaniously activating your electrosuit.

.....

fuck i need to find something to do tonight


#19

HAHAHAHAHA "HOLY MACARONI MOTHERFUCKERS" man. I'll sleep easy tonight because of this.
Picture perfect mental imagery.
