I've told a less detailed account of this elsewhere, but I think it's worth going into detail here, from a martial perspective. I was a little embarassed by it, but I think it's worth mentioning because if you just want to avoid damage and know how to use it, the buttscoot is really not that bad.

I suppose calling it a streetfight is a little misleading, because I got assaulted and didn't attempt to fight, only to defend myself, and by that I mean, try not to get hurt.

So I was at the gym and a guy threw a dumbell at me and then ran across the room. I told him to stop and put my hands up. He punched me. It glanced across my forehead and wouldn't have caused a bruise, except he had a ring on his pinkie. I started bleeding profusely.

I told him to stop again and backed away out of the gym onto the pavement. He followed, and swung several times, I dodged these shots. He cornered me. I rolled onto my back and started scooting while calling for help. I had steel toes on, I dunno if that made a difference, but when he tried to strike at me I kicked at his strikes and he wasn't able to get at me. I scooted around on the pavement for a couple minutes pushing him back every time he tried to get to me.

Eventually, help arrived and he got hauled away. I avoided getting into a fight I didn't want and he looked like a crazy idiot, which benefitted me more than a fight would have.

a guy threw a dumbell at meHe THREW a dumbell at you?! Presuming the dumbell was of a decent weight (ie. 6kg/12lbs or more), my mind boggles at the logistics of such a task.

Having said that, the throwing of a dumbell could have had lethal results. Nice escape!

I got news for you, getting assaulted counts as a fight. Just because you don't fight back doesn't mean you didn't get in a fight. You just didn't participate.

His sister told him I raped her, I didn't, and the context which I won't go into here makes that blatantly obvious, but he doesn't care and just wanted an excuse to take a swing anyway. He already hated me.

Yeah, it hit me in the ribs. And hurt. A lot.

He called me a rapist and said he ought to rape my sister.

In a legal context, a fight implies consent. This was just him attacking me.

Throwing a dumbbell at someone is at least assault with a deadly weapon, like throwing a bowling ball or hitting someone with a bat. You had pretty close to carte blanche in a situation where you were being attacked with a weapon and threatened along with family (if you do have a sister, not clear on the article).

Pretty much anything aside from a swift killing blow would not have been excessive force since he gave chase or easily contested to being such.

His family would have killed me. They still want to, and have tried, but they've been unsuccesful so far. I think they might have stopped trying now, but only time will tell.

I'm going to do my self a favor and just think that this guys sister is a stupid bitch and you're actually an alright guy.

Best case scenario: I would get a legal restraining order set against him and his entire family.

Worest comes to wroest: PM Sam Browning and hope his masterful law-jitsu will save you.
