    Damn. That commute to 1992 must be brutal.

    That Bond VS. Peter Franks fight in the elevator is a classic.

    I dunno...I've never been in a fight in a phone booth, but I have been in a fight in an 8 x 9 'space'.
    It was a frenzied free-for-all and I was dealing with a guy who outweighed me by a good 30 lbs (fat). I ended up on top, after absorbing a few blows, because I managed to kick his legs out from under him.
    Luckily for me his head slammed off the toilet and he was so stunned I pummeled him pretty easily after that.

    Mind you this was many, many years ago..before I had really done any serious training.
    I think my immediate reaction would be to use close-quarter elbow shots, the same as you would in the cage when you have your opponent up against the fence.
    There are a lot of elbows in bak mei and our short fist sets.

    The only funny bit in dumb and dumber was a phone box fight.

    My friend references phone booths a lot. For example "That chick was uglier than a knife fight in a phone booth." Great image.


    I'm really not sure how I'd use my shitty judo for a phone booth fight. Standing chokes? Foot-sweeps and hip throws that bash the guys head against the inside walls? Out-grip the guy to tie up his arms and head-butt like a woodpecker?

    Sounds like a bad day, all around.

    in a phone booth? Lift up and slam/smother prob, then put the boot in - if you really had to.

    Alternately tickling or a really nasty fart would also end that confrontation.

    Those all sound great compared to a lot of the self defense krotty solutions out there.

    I was a dinner with some friends that rarely get together in the same place a couple weeks back. One of the women showed up in a TARDIS shirt. One of the guys asked "are you bigger on the inside than on the outside?"
