My fighting days are past me now. At least I hope. That's why I carry a gun.
One of my patients was a high level black belt (not sure which style)I have an uncle that has a black belt in tire-iron and another that’s pretty handy with a chain, does that count?
A good handgun trump's martial arts every time!Ask Brandon Lee about his martial arts training against a gun... Though there is definitely a use for martial arts.
Note to self:The USMC Spc. Forces taught me how to handle close fighting.
There are many ways to end a fight before it starts.
Ripping out someone's eyes is easy and takes very little lbs. of pressure to do.
Ripping off a set of testicals only takes a few lbs. of pressure to do.
But a 4 inch barrel beats a 8 inch blade all the time.
Those kind of things are a last resort when I am in a hand to hand fight that I think I am going to lose. Like if there was a knife involved and I could not draw (For whatever the reason). Hold the arm with the knife take the hits from the free hand and with my free hand.Note to self:
NEVER make goofy angry!
Making me angry does nothing.I second that!
Daddy is a marine... He taught me quite a bit of what he knows.Making me angry does nothing.
Just do not jump me and put me in a corner and try to hurt me or my family.
I don't get angry anymore just upset.
I am just one person and there are many and many other people just like me out there (Those that have the same training I got) I bet the reason you do not hear about those is we try (And do) walk away from a confrontation rather then fight.
I was saying what I would do if jumped not when someone trys to get me angry.
I think they cal that Thi Quando, probably spelt wrong. The art of dirty fighting.Those kind of things are a last resort when I am in a hand to hand fight that I think I am going to lose. Like if there was a knife involved and I could not draw (For whatever the reason). Hold the arm with the knife take the hits from the free hand and with my free hand.
GRAB AND RIP.......
I was taught VERY young being raised in Phily......
NO RULES IN A STEET FIGHT.
Kick, grab, bite, poke.
The USMC just showed me how and what works best to end it fast.
I was jumped when I was 10 years old by 3 bigger brats and the police wanted to charge me after it was over because I sunk my teeth into the one kids arm (That was around my face holding me) and he screamed so loud the others took off and left him to go to the hospital to get the chunk of arm sowed back on. They did find my broken tooth inside his arm.
No one messed around with me after that.
You know the old saying.
EVERYONE wants to try out a bad ass but NO ONE messes with a crazy person.
You just do not know what he will do.
Well said!!!!!!!!!!!!The mind was once young and fearless, but today the body fails to cooperate at that level. Intersticial muscle tissues that use to glide are now forever joined. Torn tendons and ligaments with surgeries have eventually taught me the lesson to change direction. The limberness is gone and is now is a potential disabling tear waiting to occur. Now wisdom must replace ego if survival is tested.
I find carrying a knife, the larger sabre red maximum strength pepper spray, a hammerless 442 38 bug in the uncle mikes pocket holster with a fulll sized 9mm sr9 owb on the hip with a strong desire to heed and practice the lessons of the firearms insurance providers on collision avoidance, etc are best for myself these days. Justice usually is not just, but political in nature. Be aware of your surroundings and stay away from those places where defensive needs may be called upon. Better to walk away with your bank accounts still in the bank than to end up giving them to a loser or the loser's family.
