Wow I haven’t been here in weeks. Many things have happened.. but thats all a different story. I haven’t had time to keep up with all of my gerbils, and there is a petstore near me that is willing to take four or five of them. Unfortunetly one of my pups died, I have no clue how. It was a spotted agouti, died last week. Monday, I will be seperating them all. I am not 100% sure on all the genders, just sure that there is one boy Argente, one girl argente, and two boy spotted agouti, and the regular agouti is a girl. My mom actually wants to get a lizard of some sort, she wants me to do the research and find out what the best pet lizard would be. I would ask her to take care of my gerbils, but she is terrified of them. There is no way for me to keep them all..
So, if anyone wants any gerbils, in Michigan, I will give them away for free, to responsible owners. Email me if you are interested.

Sometimes a fight can actually go to the ground. What I mean by that is, both people fighting lose their vertical base and end up wrestling with each other. Obviously it's not what most fights look like. Street fighters are generally looking to either grab your wrist or punch you (We, as martial artists, have a big advantage in that we train to use our feet. Kicks are more powerful than punches). But sometimes a fight ends up on the floor, and you need to be prepared for that just as much as you're prepared to break a double-lapel grab. Here's how you do it:
The most important thing to keep in mind is to make sure your opponent DOES NOT BRIDGE WHILE HE'S ON TOP OF YOU.

There are no words. Should have sent a poet.
A retarded poet.
I know it's pretty apparent that if you're a big, strong guy the chances that you'll end up on the ground are much slimmer. You could probably just horseplay yourself out of most situations. But it pays to be prepared. That's what gives us an advantage over street fighters.

I was all prepared with a disparaging comment, but when I found out the poor kid was essentially a real life Napolean Dynamite it kinda took the wind out of my sails.

Re-read the OP (condensed for easier comprehension):
The best defense against street fighting is just plain knowledge. If you know how to
do swimmer blocks, and know how to throw a good seiken punch. Since street fighters
work off of pure adrenaline, it leaves them open with opprotunities to no extent! Lets

... becuase of the way they hit you, you can easily break one of their
wrists. When they swing at you, donï¿½t get an adrenaline rush right away. Try to dodge a
few moves here and there, and block most of them. Do this until you are fully concentrated,
then next time they...

will feel that spot that hurt when you touch it. With a hammer blow right there I garauntee
they wonï¿½t use that arm. Also a nice seiken hit (explained above) into the middle of the

that arm for 3 days...
