Style: Short Fist Boxing
Bouncing is not a bad way to earn some under-the -table cash, but I sure as hell wouldn't want to do it for more than a year or two. I was offered a job here in town a while back, but I turned it down at the behest of my better half. She would rather see me get banged up in MA class ..I guess.
Anyways, good story Scrapper.

You are not allowed to have bouncing stories scrapper as only reality-revisionist TMAers and nutty RBSD sorts are allowed to use MA effectively on da str33tz! Your MMA will result in spontaneous combustion, mark my words!
You are a total Douchbag. Train more, post nevermore.

Style: BJJ and then some
This is why I didn't want my boyfriend bouncing anymore. Too much fucking sleaze and aggro crap. His buddy has a huge scar on his face from where some asshole smashed him in the face with a pint glass. It missed his eye by millimeters. People who have gotten 86ed have come back with guns and posses. I'm not sure how many times my boyfriend has been threatened with murder. The last straw was this one night where some tweaker came by and was asked to leave, but wouldn't. Casey had to throw the guy onto the ground and out the door to get him out of the bar. But the idiot got back up. So Casey threw him again. But he got back up. So, he got thrown again. And again. Granted, the guy wasn't posing much of a physical threat, but the problem was just this incessant violence and machismo. Some guys get drunk and can't take a hint. And so you have to rough them up.
Casey is so incredibly non-confrontational and hates fighting. When I was looking for MMA schools, he was looking into taking Aikido lessons because he doesn't like hurting people. It just made no sense for him to be this caring, sweet, (almost annoyingly) passive person most of the time, and then go put on this aggressive costume at nights for $15 an hour. It just wasn't working.
I don't know why you're a bouncer, but dealing with **** like that all the time can't be good for the ol' soul.

Man for 15/hr I'd bounce in hell.
But then no one ever gets in fights with me.
There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

yeah but you guys all live in Nowheresville, whereas making ends meet on $15/hr in the Bay Area isn't completely easy. It can be done, it's kinda the beginning mark of "good money," but it's not great.
Now he's a cashier at a grocery store and makes $20 an hour.

At the place I worked, this guy came in totally wired on Coke, then proceeded to drink A LOT. When it came time for this guy to get turfed (he was being an ass) Chris (6'4" 320lbs notfat) took him out back. The guy threw a haymaker, and Chris dropped him flat. But dude got right back up, with broken face. SO Chris hit him again. Repeat about a dozen times, ad nauseum. When the Cops finally showed up, They say to Chris "Why did you **** him up so bad Chris?"
Chris: "Well, he just kept getting back up!"
