Kazrath: RockofAges: IcedPee: s1ugg0: Zombie DJ: s1ugg0: The whole key claw thing is a sure fire way to wreck up your hand and weaken your ability to defend yourself.

No, it depends on the keys and key ring you have. I know a girl who has it set up to be like Wolverine claws if need be.

Have her go to the gym and punch a heavy bag with them.  I bet you she gets in no more than two shots and her hand is a mess.  Fighting is not like the movies and physics is a cruel mistress.

Try punching a heavy bag with just a wedding ring on.  Even under gloves you are going to have a bad time.

Punching a heavy bag with a wedding ring on will feel exactly like punching a heavy bag without a wedding ring on. You don't connect with the back on that part of your ring finger. You hit with your first two knuckles.

I think you might be legally retarded.

The best lesson to teach untrained individuals in terms of fighting is:

1) learn to hit things with your elbows and knees, really hard. Far less chance of getting a limb trapped, loss of power due to crap technique, etc.

2) avoid fights wherever possible, by common sense, fast talking, or evasion.

3) there's no such thing as a fair fight

Much better advice:  If you are worried about physical confrontations start taking BJJ classes.  I don't care how bad-ass of a woman you think you are an enraged guy that wants to beat you takes an enormous amount of damage to stop.  You are much better off learning how to defend yourself with a style that works well when you are undersized and/or weaker than your opponent.


Totally agree, if I was raging and about to beat the hell out of somebody, a BJ would totally calm me right the fark down.

College girls scream hysterically {1} when they are both wearing the same socks! We don't know that anyone else heard her, but if they did, as Felgraf  pointed out, may have blown it off as more senseless shrieking.

It's ok, he had a bag of skittles in his pocket....

Seriously, so many are prepared to condemn strangers for not getting involved...god forbid they do! Zimmerman {2}got involved, so did the rest of the neighborhood watch, and look where it got him!

{1} ???
{2} stopped reading right there.

1. Yes, words are hard...see below
2.If the words are too big, maybe you can find someone to help you sound them out?


You misunderstand. The problem is not vocabulary, the problem is your feeble attempt to either justify Zimmerman's actions, or troll. Now go away before I taunt you a second time.

The Southern Logic Company: CSB
Sitting in a Starbucks waiting for someone, I was near the alleyway next to the store because I could see the cars pulling in easier. I hear footsteps in the alleyway and a scuffle, I can see two people fighting. Not wanting to get involved, I started to turn around when I heard one of them yell "Help I am an undercover police officer!"

Its nice to have the police thank YOU for a change
/CSB


It's funny.  This one time I was mugging this guy in an alleyway near a Starbucks, and when the guy I was mugging started beating me up I yelled, "Help I am an undercover police officer!" and some guy helped me get this guy's wallet.

s1ugg0: No real self defense class teaches that.


Thank goodness you took them all, or else you wouldn't be able to share that knowledge.

But seriously, it's a good thing the Internet has so many martial arts experts with first-hand experience in hand-to-hand combat.  Otherwise I could only get my self-defense tips from a bunch of computer nerds who could only consult their Palladium RPG sourcebooks.

Loreweaver: feckingmorons: dotvincent: feckingmorons: eldritch2k4: feckingmorons:
Something is just not right about the story if the cops got the call of a battery in progress and didn't arrive for 45 minutes.

You may have heard the saying "When seconds count, the police are minutes away."

My (now ex-) step-father once pulled a gun on my mother, while he was in a drunken rage. She managed to flee to a neighbor's house, who called 911. It took 15 minutes for the cops to show up, while my mom, us kids, and the neighbor hid with nothing but a locked door standing between us and him. Lucky for us, the threat of the cops coming was enough to scare him off.

But still, 15 farking minutes to respond to a report of a man threatening his wife and children with a gun. By the time they showed up, he was already two townships away. What could *possibly* be more of a priority than a gunman with hostages?

FarkinHostile: Overconfidence is also a good way to get your face caved in if the guy was a real psychotic, and there are a lot of them out there. This story was *this close* to being a personal tragedy for the author.


If he was a psychotic, wouldn't he leave you alone and start punching the self-transforming machine elves popping out of his skin and clothing?

I think you meant to say "psychopath."

I'm only a mint belt, but with enough practice, I might one day make it to teal.

s1ugg0: Rwa2play:So the guy dated another girl and it was ok for him, but she went to see another guy and he got pissed off about it?!

And men wonder why we have such a bad rep.

Actually men wonder why we're all lumped in one group.  I once took a 3 man beating to make sure a woman was unharmed.  I've been with, and faithful to, the same woman for 11 years.  Why put me in the same category as this piece of garbage?


Cut it out, dude, he's TRYING to get laid.

But it's weird, there's an open restaurant, a bar and grill, and dozens of apartments buildings, no one else came out.

Thankfully, there are some good people around who will intervene when the need arises.
