    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    A true "street" fight

    That's right. I fought a street. And while I wouldn't say I won, I might call it a draw.
    While biking up to Sambo practice, I hit a gap in the pavement at a wierd angle, and the bike spinning out from under me. I get thrown from my steed, and hit the concrete. Hands hit first, tuck and roll into a vanilla-bean front rolling fall. I get up and continue on my way; slightly bruised on the hands, but my helmet never even touched the ground.
    I've had two similar wipeouts in the past; once where I hit a curb in the dark and again rolled out of the fall, and another time where my bike slid out from under me on some ice and I hit the ground with a backfall, palms slapping the cement and everything.
    The point of this thread is - martial arts training has saved me from being attacked on the streets once, and being attacked by the streets thrice. That's a 3-1 ratio of terrestrial versus human assailants.
    TL;DR version: BJJ wins. Again.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    HAhah. Nice work!

    I remember a time when the street defeated me.

    Many years ago I was riding a BMX and bunnyhopped as i turned into a street, the wheels went fom under me i fell and slid a meter or so into the gutter, my head hit the kerb. I was wearing a helmet thank ****.

    I did not know MA then. Perhaps i will win next time we duel.

    Hopefully that street won't sneak into your house and murder your family. That's how it's usually done on the streets, right?

    My unusual tallness isn't a genetic thing. It's the street trying to maintain a safe distance from me.

    That's right, the ************ is terrified of me!
