    That’s probably true.

    My mate, who's a bit of a loon, and a Judo 3rd dan, once had someone pull a knife on him in Camden and demand his money. Without thinking about it he grabbed the mugger and threw him as hard as he could with O soto gari and then fucked off.

    Definitely not recomended, but it is possible with a good dose of luck.

    It was only when he woke up the next day and thought about what he'd done that he realised how close to death he had been.

    I was 16. My training at the time consisted of 2 years of childhood Judo (before I turned 12), and point sparring TKD & Karate.

    Now I'm more experienced.. I wouldn't be at that kind of party.

    I once did a (testing)parachute jump at the army, and I was amazed as I felt time was slowing down...although, at the same time, I really knew I headed down real fast...

    On another occasion, I had a car crash, and after the point of no return I already had imaged a few different possiblities of where my car would stop and how... pretty weird.

    Ja, sure.

    I have the same policy, don't hang out in places where you are unlikely to be the toughest/ most lunatic person.

    If you apply that rule and surround yourself with mates who are dan grade Judoka and pro Muay thai fighters and you're fairly safe in most un armed altercations.

    So true. Some people exude confidence. One of the guys i do MT with is totally normal. I mean couldnt be any more normal. But he's trained and fought in thailand for six years in his 20's and he just has this look that freaks people out. He's a really great guy , just scary if you dont know him.

    Tbh I don't really think about MA in a self-defence context much nowadays, I live somewhere quiet in the country and I'm too old to get into staring contests with drunks in cheesy nightclubs.

    I do martial arts for the same reason people take up other rough sports like Rugby. It keeps me healthy and stops me turning into a completely domesticated office-plant.

    Im 21 and i dont get into a lot of fights. There's a total misconception that "the streets" are full of teh danger. Maybe in some areas but just stay the hell away from them. The closest i got to an altercation in the past year was 5 guys restraining a friend who had bumped into me and kicked off. They apologised and told me no one wanted any trouble and their friend was a dickhead.
