The original setup was pretty dumb, Obesely, but if you're going to have mats and refs in a real gym if you plead a hangover and duck out of just rolling with the guy I'm going to have to say that would be a bit wimpy.It seems to me that the Sanjuriu Martial Art is not in guestion, but, rather the character of Mr. Galt.

The guy just wants to let out some energy, he literally has himself convinced that I'll beat him... he's not out to best me at anything. So, in light of that (and the fact that Sunday is probably not going to happen, nor will anytihng like this ever), I don't care anymore. The gym Sang linked me to has some sparring on Sundays as well, so... to be honest, I really just want to go to that. At least there I'll LEARN something and get my ass handed to me relatively safely ie. in the same capacity that I'd receive a beating at boxing or judo separately. Even if they don't have equipment like gloves, then at least I'll get some decent no-gi going.
@Sang, I'll PM Mr. Miyagi and ask if it's alright to attend/if I can snag a lift (pretty sure we all live near each other anyway/I'm still on my L's... FML).
EDIT: Nah, MrGalt, this would just be two friends meeting for that typical backyard brawling/rolling, not actually a challenge. There's like... grass and a swimming pool.

I haven't got into anything like that since about grade 7. How'd you manage it?Anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices.

That sums up some of the chav scum from Southend On Sea alright! I lived there up till 5 years ago when I decided enough was enough and moved out into the sticks. To be honest most are more talk than action but there are a few loonies who will stick an axe in your head.

Dude, it might be stupid? No sir, it's definitely stupid. A great way to get injured and interfere with your training.
That said. You need a second. Maybe a third or more. bring some friends simply to keep you from getting rat packed. Good friends. Ones that won't just watch you get beat down, or run when things get hairy. One's that will jump into the fray if things go too far.
Also, the guy has strength and experience. Those two things can carry a fight, especially if your THINKING about your technique. Forget trying to do something you learned in class. The hesitation of trying to strategize will be all the time he needs to rock your world.
Simply go as hard and aggressive as you can. Use your skills to deliver the pain with precision, and FOLLOW THROUGH. Do not, and I repeat do not let up until he is unable to continue fighting, either broken in spirit or body. Preferably spirit, but you health is on the line, so do what you have to.
The only way you can beat the brute is to bring his own game, combined with your training. But you must bring the violence, or your going to get the tar kicked out of you.
Is this dangerous, even illegal? Yeah. Most likely. Is it overkill? Generally yes.
But what do you think will happen to you if he gets the upper hand. You've just agreed to a street fight. What did you think is going to happen? You'd get a hot oil and shiatsu?
No man, it's going to be brutal. You must be more brutal. You have the skills to prevail, but do you have to balls out attitude to match his? You could "win" if you do. But the truth is, nobody wins this stuff. It's simply a matter of who is less damaged after the fact. Stupid. Pointless. And as far from the pinnacle of martial achievement as it gets. (read your Sun Tzu, good read, big medicine)
If you do this, you've got to commit. $@% him up completely or not at all. I know you're 19, and this stuff seems really important to you, but it's not. I did some stupid **** when I was your age, but it was in self defense. You sir, picked this battle, for worse, or even worse than that.
Try to win it one piece due.
Stay safe bro, I mean that.

If Its me, I spar when im comfortable, where im comfortable and in the company of people I feel comfortable with. Ive nothing to proove to anyone but myself, and niether do you. You are beholden to none but yourself.
Thiers always a bigger, badder fish. Sometimes the bigger fish it a ketamine addicted **** like in my case.
If you're not comfortable, offer appologise and move on. Im 21, some say young and hot headed, and I know when the risks really arn't worth the hubris.
