    It depends on the situation. If it's in public and not involving anyone I know, I'd stay the **** out of it.

    If it involved one or more of my friends, I'd probably try to break it up, unless it is one of my friends that deserves an asswhuppin'.

    You should add 'It depends on a lot of factors'.

    I would break it up if I knew one or both guys/girls.

    I would also try to break up a fight of people I don't know depending on the surounding and how the fight came about, if they are using weapons etc...

    Man, it's a weird thing. Sometimes I would, sometimes I wouldn't.

    I WILL stop a fight to keep a guy from getting beat to death I WILL stop a fight most of the time if I think I can do so just by telling the people to stop...I WON'T (or am less likely) to break up a fight if it's two dudes fighting over something like a girl . . . unless I'm on the clock at the bar I don't usually break up fights so much as stop the beating of the loser(s) once the fight has passed the "fair" point.

    If I know one of the people, I'll probably have taken care of the situation before it becomes a problem, but I tend to be loyal almost to the point of a fault. . .

    Where is the option to join in? My response is situational. I'll either stand by and watch (because I'm not particularly large, and I wouldn't really be able to break up a fight between huge white guys) or if its just some stupid fight at a party concerning my friends I'll just back them up.
    Rad ki was made up by adolescents. I do not know who created trad ki but it was not made by adolescents. your an ass dude, Im not being a little bitch you are, your past the level of a bitch. Your beyond Bitch! If im easting my time with ki and psi, then your wasting time to prove frauds, and all **** like that! -theoutsider

    Kick boxing is ok, but don't expect do beat a man like Rickson Gracie with that. You need a real martial art. You need Xing Yi Quan. -Emptyflower

    The splits, how ever, have a few martial uses. Doing the splits for me, can put my fists in testical strike range.

    dont ignore the Art for the Martial or else your just kick boxing

    Yes i am serious, there are kicks that can block punches. we have them in Moo duk kwan.
    I want to learn how to use them in case my arm gets broken in a fight.
    what would you have me do? if my arm gets broke, not block punches? -sempi-stone

    I'm a LEO and I've done it a few times. It sucks because both parties sometimes turn on you...I'd advise regular people to avoid it unless someone is getting their head stomped.
