    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    How many of you guys really had to use your art to defend yourself

    This is a serious thread.

    most people that train in a martial art thankfully never get to use it in a real situation .

    You know there is a difference between a dojo match or a tournament or even a UFC cage match. Simply because there are rules, certain techniques are illegal.

    How many of you guys really had to resort to your training to defend yourselves.

    In most states unless you are Police , you have a duty to withdraw if you can , and even if you are a Police , there is a legal limit to how much physical force you can use.

    For example you can't round kick a person in the head unless you have pretty articulable reasons that your life was in danger and he presented a bonafide threat. The standards are even more stringent for civilians.

    I know there are some military dudes in here , Im sure some of you especially if you were in combat took out a enemy.

    So really has anybody had to really use their training when it counted.

    What did you find that worked , what advice to you have for anybody who may unfortunately be in that situation.

    My advice is run like a ************ if you can , if you are police you cant run.

    try talking try reasoning try bluffing, if you cant , hit first hit hard and make it count because you may not get a second chance.

    Like I said , im not looking for a flame war , this is a serious thread.

    Serious answer. Once. And it ended up in a wrist lock, believe it or not. Drunken moron at a cabin we were renting. Nothing dramatic, it was over in about three seconds, and the guy wandered off home.

    No one has ever asked that question before.

    No one has ever pointed out that UFC is not a street fight.

    This is sheds new light on a lot things that will bring about many thoughtful responses.

    And why do you beat a dead horse? Isn't a pointless exercise.

    beating a dead horse is good training for fighting a live opponent. Also, board and brick breaking have been very applicable in my career.

    The question you should be asking your self is why aren't you training with a legend like Tadashi Nakamura.

    The question worth asking, is why haven't you validated your claims of being a LEO, when you have an ADMIN right here in this thread.

    Serious answer: Yes. Frequently.

    Because I rather you think im lying , and what for to appease you , I don't think so , I think if theres any cops on this forum , they know , You don't need to know unless you come to my juridiction and commit a crime and get hooked and booked , and when you get bought into the pct , Ill be the smiling Lieutenant who will log your ass in and decide if its a bailable offense how much , in your case the MAX .

    Look , im not proving **** to you , Besides like you said , you aren't going to show respect anyway , so there you go .
