The FightPosted: April 2, 2013 | |
had a reader ask me what i would have done if i had to be “assertive” with a 6’2″ LB type guy. basically the same thing, but i would have been more subtle. the funny thing is, guys that fight can usually tell when they’re dealing with another guy that’ll fight. i don’t care how big, how intimidating, how muscular, NOTHING….i mean NOTHING will get me to back down. of course, it’s not that i WANT to fight. i’ve only met a few guys that simply “got off” from fighting. but even for them, it’s the public disgracing of the opponent that they TRULY like. i work with a few alpha guys. i can honestly say if i fought any of them, i’d probably lose.
i’m 5’4″ and weigh a measly 135 lbs. EVERYONE i’ve ever been in a fight with has been bigger than me. i’ve posted about RL fights i’ve had or ALMOST had in the recent past here. i don’t think i’ve been in a physical altercation in 8-9 months (that redneck clown that shoulder checked me in the parking lot at target), and i couldn’t be happier.
there’s a reason i tell guys to take up krav maga. it instills a sense of self confideance that you just can’t fake. one of my co-worker has been taking it for about a year. and he’s itching to finally get to “try it out”. i know for a fact that man has been in very few fights in his life. how do i know?
he’s looking to fight. even with what little krav i know. i DO NOT look forward to using it. i have to physically restrain myself to NOT fight. i KNOW what will happen, so i REEEEEEEEEALLY don’t want to take it there. however, i do think it’s a vital part of masculinity. but sadly, most men simply cannot fight. even more disturbing is that MORE woman are fighting than before. you are more likely to see female swing now than you would men. and i’ve seen women go after guys since “what’s he gonna do?” it’s a lose lose. if you win, you get charged with assault for fighting with a woman who attacked you. if you lose, you like like a pussy.
since i’m now back on days until i retire, i plan on getting back into krav (there’s a dojo close to the canton), and krav is a GREAT workout. i’ll try and start doing krav related posts and will do my best to answer any question whoever is interested might have. and i HIGHLY recommend women take krav, it’s a great self defense skill because you DON’T have to be big to be effective.
however, if and when the huns are at the gates. i feel sorry for you ladies.
and while it doesn’t state it in the video, the narrator says that boys need to find their limits, they never fought again. once a man KNOWS you’ll swing, they will think twice about engaging you. but a man must test his boundaries.
