Not that there aren't problems with the whole "no punches to the head" thing but still...

My most embarassing moment: well when I was 18 I was hanging out with some gangmembers in a town I barely Knew and we were all getting drunk. Well these two steroid heads kept eyeballing me so I decided to leave. As I was walking away one of them hit me in the ear from behind. I turned around ear ringing and realized I had to be hella drunk if I didn't feel that. So I asked him what he was going to do next and he just got in a car weith the others and they drove off. Well I went to a friends house I kinda knew and kept drinking. After I tought about it I decided to go to this dudes house and kick his ass. What I retard I was, as I reached the street they lived on all the sudden everything went black. I could hear the guys running up on me but was too drunk to see. I woke up the next morning covered in blood lying in a trash can with ants crawling all over me. It took the better part of the day to remember how I got there damn they beat my Ass. A momentary lapse in inteligence what a dumb ass.

No, he was a 6'2", hard as rock, dark-skinned black guy. Literally, the 1st time I met him I was reminded of Darth Vader
However, what you said about learning a lot about yourself and mentality is most definitely the truth!!! I may not have learned a great deal about fighting, but I learned a lot of other things that I feel laid the groundwork for my success in MuayThai...

This isn't a fight story, but it's definitely bullshido. I had almost repressed this memory.
Back in high school I was a blue belt in Isshinryu (which many of you know has very little potential for XMA), but I thought all that junk was necessary so I worked it out on my own. I got a couple of friends from my school and the local Ke?po school together and put together a demonstration for the high school talent show in front of 2,000 other students. I'll give you the highlights until I YouTube this abomination someday:
musical choreographed fight...check
musical choreographed fight where 4'8" girl beats up two 6' boys...check
Johnny Cage split punch...check
board breaking with a raw egg in the breaking hand...check
broke my right hand so I'll never be able to hit another board in my life...check
We did win show twice. The prize money didn't even pay for all the boards. I was a pretty nice guy so nobody ever had real beef with me, but we actually wondered why so many wrestlers and football players were suddenly convinced they could kick my buddy's ass after he did the demo with me.

BJJ Wins Again
When I was 16, I was in a schoolyard fight. The guy was much bigger and stronger than me. But I interfered with his bullying, so I was next.
It was on.
He's swinging, I'm ducking, he's pushing, I'm weaving. He throws me up against the fence.
AND WHAT DO I DO?
A Goju-Kai knifehand to the throat.
He casually slaps it aside, and there's more swinging. I finally catch one above the eye, which opens up and spews blood everywhere (I still have the scar, but luckily the doctor was across the road for stitches).
So now I'm pissed off. I don't remember much, but we end up on the asphalt, I lock in a choke, and squeeze until he gives up.
I'm told he sat there for a good ten minutes coughing, hacking, groaning and wheezing after I left.
But I'm still ashamed of the lame Goju-Kai knifehand. Years of training in Karate, just so I can grapple when I really need it.

After I was charged £10 for an hour's lesson in WingTsun where we sat cross-legged whilst the teacher actually wrote physics equations on the board, and drew diagrams of how we should be stepping if someone punches us, I began thinking hard.
Most embarassingly, I actually contacted my teacher because I seriously wanted to become an instructor in WingTsun. It never clicked in my mind that there was something seriously messed up in taking about five punches to the face in a playfight with a 130 pound girl. I tan-saued and I bong-saued and did the whole pigeon toed thing - it was a real embarassment.
Anyways, Muay Thai has been my proverbial shower, which I'm using very frequently to wipe that proverbial ****, that was WingTsun, off my body.
