what are some general fighting tips? street wise?
i got into a scrap (drunkenly) with a 250 pound dude and 1 who was about 160.
(im 150 barely)
i lost but i did good until the second skinny guy jumped in out of nowhere...
What are some good tips?
Don't drink so much.
Take a martial arts course, as much for the philosophy as the technique. I'm no expert but it might be a good thing for you.
its weird you say that...
i like fighting tho. i mean it doesnt have to be street tough guy **** i like boxing and other stuff to but i dont know anyone else or have a mentor or anything.
im just a weirdo.
iyour right. so right. for the mental AND the physical.
your body is a house, physical mental emotional and spiritual...
boxin is too one dimensional.
i want to take something that is functional though.
something that is actually useful, that a world champion fighter would use.
well a world champ would probablly have hybrid style, so i should just experiment...
Walk up to the guy calmly and, while scratching randomly (seemingly) at your left shoulder with your right hand, say, "I don't want to fight, man. I don't want to--"
Then, out of nowhere, just backhand the sonofabitch in the adam's apple with aforementioned hand/arm/elbow, and take it from there. He should drop and start choking if you hit him right. If not, kick the sonofabitch in the nuts immediately following the backhand. If that still doesn't work, RUN!
kicky, that right there made you my favorite poster here -_-
Multiple opponents usually ends badly.
Keep 'em in front of you.
If you dint start it, you are not required to follow rules. (remember this if you did, cuz they won't feel bound either)
Tae kwon do might suit you, Onion...
**** rock nice effin sig man.
my friend just informed me my 1st opponent was about 6'5'' 250 pounds
the other one was like 6 foot 170.
and i lasted about 5 minutes.
then i lost
fighting is so fun, i dont see why everyone is all pansy about it.
There is no retirement plan there, my friend...
I might also mention that since street fights have no written rules,
You never know what the next guy feels he needs to be sure he wins...
Don't gamble what you can't lose my friend...
-Don't stand still - keep moving as a stationary target makes it too easy.
-Keep you elbows up when throwing a punch, if you miss with your fist, you can sometimes land an elbow.
-Do not tuck your thumbs in, keep your fist tight.
-If you don't know karate, don't pretend to. If you aren't trained to kick, odds are you'll just end up on the ground.
-Know weak spots... joints, neck, armpits, groin, etc. Keep in mind they might know weak spots as well.
-Aim for the nose. Cheeks hurt your fists.
-Have a friend watch your back if you can.
-Learn how to talk your way out of a fight.
yeah thats when i messed up when i quit moving.
and bein drunk but wow it was exhilirating.
ive only got into 2 fights since i ended my vow of non-violence.
i love it. i cant wait to go into brazilian jiu jitsu classes thats totally my style, wrap em up and submit em..
I am no longer fighter, however I do have knowledge:
-Apply a guard, forearms outward to absorb the impact, elbows protecting the ribs or intercostal muscles.
-Force begins from the ground, hence there is always stepping into movements, be it jab, cross, hook, or uppercuts.
-The stepping into motion requires a 'turn' or 'twist' of the foot and hips, which entail the acceleration behind the strike, it enhances the force.
-Power, meaning hit fast andhard, whilst apply the above.
I do feel guilty sharing such, being that you may maliciously harm others.
As for the stance, guard up as above, knees mildly bent ('L' shape with legs and feet), it should appear as mildly sinking, however only mildly, you should be able to have diverse movement of legs and hips.
Taking the above into account, your actions, such as a jab should be explosive, meaning that it may exert explosive strength.
If you were to jab in this stance, the front foot (left) should turn the heel 90 degrees, head should also turn 90 degrees, back foot should remain firm (Lower of the 'L'), hips must entail this entire motion to execute the high force, therefore simply moving into.
To finish the combination with a cross, step the back foot (right) mildly foward, which naturally entails a 90 degree turn, whilst reversing the previous strike.
Be certain that the stepping in motions, such as jab and cross utilise the 'ball' (toe) of the foot to execute the strike.
Hooks and uppercuts can substituted for elbows.
Acknowledge the body you are facing.
Is there a guard, the timing of movements, is the auxilary nerves, solar plexes, throat, or back of the head exposed.
Take downs are also effective on firm ground.
Relax you body, strike randomly, and more importantly use your environment to your advantage. Chairs, tables, beer bottles, another person, use such items creatively, or for me, instinctively, to defend and attack.
Another tip: don't even think twice before reacting. I stopped pounding a guy's face because of empathy, too late to see the opportunity I had given, the bastard took a quick jab at my nose and broke it.
If you're on top keep on pounding till you are sure that he is in no state to fight back.
I also suggest taking mixed martial arts classes in your spare time, I did it, and it has saved me from many beatings in an environment where alcohol was served.
