If you had to defend yourself...
Could you? Seeing videos of people being attacked makes me realize I probably wouldn't stand a chance in a fight, much less getting mugged by a group of thugs. I'm 40, overweight, out of shape, fighting multiple joint inflammations, and have had very little self defense training. Perhaps I could fight dirty by going to the eyes, ripping at ears, kicking in the groin, etc. But if it was a standing scrap and I got punched at, I'd probably be KTFO and in serious shit.

How about the rest of you? Could you fight your way out of a jam? Do you carry any sort of self defense weapons (knives, guns, pepper sprays, etc.) just in case?

Yes I am proficiently trained in unarmed combat to deal with arseholes you use the ARSE principal.
Acceptable behavior-yes or no
Reasonable demand-yes or no
Safe do you feel safe-yes or no
Escape-yes or no.

Four nos means action is required.

Your primary objective is not to be there when violence erupts,if you enter a bar with a bad vibe-leave,if you see 4 guys that look suspect coming towards you cross the street.If you must run away.

Even when you do defend yourself there can be legal ramifications such as a charge of 'excessive force'.

Despite countless hours sparring and doing groundwork I have only had two serious encounters after which you shake like shit and feel a little sick due to the adrenalin dump.I am extremely non-violent but we live in a violent world so you have to know something about self defense.

Why not join a Krag-Maga or other good self defense course OP they'll take you in any condition and hell you might just loose a few pounds get healthier and a lot more self confident in the process.

If it was one person I know I would defend myself if I had to but a group of people about to attack you would be pretty scary. If I couldnt run I would fight them off though.

I was a rich kid but my parents fucked up financially and I was pulled out of the second best private school in england and thrown in with the plebs in trashy state school. first day there I was out of my depth and taking heat so the biggest fucking guy in the year beacame my punchbag. he had dental braces but was enormous, a few good hits to the mouth and his braces cut the inside of his lips and blood everywhere. after that no one fucked with me for 5 years that I was there. apart from cunts like me it was a pretty good school. ah crazy days.

Get one of those large crowd control pepper sprays and a belt loop container for it. Runs about 60-70 bucks. If you live in a state that it is illegal befriend someone out of state and have them send it to you. Also a back up collapsible baton, spray them then beat them. If you cant get pepper spray try wasp spray. Just know there is a risk involved with jail. Beaten or jail, beaten or jail. Hard to decide i know.

Re: If you had to defend yourself...
It does make one think of "What if", when it takes a group against one, and I mean group, not to many can defend themselves without a gun.

If a gun isn't your style, look for a 3" to 4" locking blade knife. With the quality, the light construction material, the weight has been cut way down, makes it easier to carry.

I myself like the Leatherman Blast multi-tool, the 3" blade is razor sharp. Also carrying one usually isn't questioned, not like a folding knife.

This is real life not the movies and the blood and pain are real. So defending yourself is a must, with the almost daily attacks by groups, it is only a matter of time before it is in your state, city, neighborhood.

Re: If you had to defend yourself...
Thanks for the feedback, folks.

The military base I work on restricts civilian employees to knives with blades less than 3" and absolutely no firearms. I suppose I could still find a decent knife to carry around. I do have a multitool but getting the knife out is no quick task. Perhaps I can look into some pepper spray as well. Not just for myself, but for my wife and kids, too.

I do have some guns at home, so at least I'm slightly more prepared there if something goes down. The house in general could use some more security improvements, though.

I wish I was like my cousin when it comes to fighting. He used to do some amateur fighting similar to Toughman for awhile. At a college football game a few years ago, some drunk idiot fans of the opposing team started jumping on his friend's truck. When he was done with them, he'd left 3 cold cocked; one in particular was lying with teeth scattered around his smashed face.

It looks like a cane, but it's actually a stun gun. I've got one myself, and I take it EVERYWHERE. It's twice as strong as the average cattle prod, AND it's got a flashlight on it. How's THAT for fighting fair, eh?

I've fought off multiple people before. Sometimes while bouncing groups of guys would try to jump me. I love when a group of guys is talking shit and act like they are going to rush you, the first one comes in and I knock him out cold with one left and the rest back off.

I guess being a former college boxer, amateur mma fighter, and high school wrestler help though.

Jesus Christ, you're getting mugged by a gang and you're worried about fighting dirty???

There is no question you fight dirty, no matter how tough you are, you fight to fuck them up bad, very fucking quickly.

This is not a boxing ring ffs.
This is not some action movie scene.
Forget any bullshit you see getting posted here about how "real men" should fight.

If you have no escape route and you have no choice, they're going to hurt you and you absoulutly have no way out... you fucking go psycho my friend, you lose the goddamn plot.

You hurt them fast and you hurt them bad and then you fucking get your ass out of there.

Can't be a "real man" if you're dead hm?


I'll tell you the truth, anybody who talks shit about "real men" and a "real fight" has never been in one outside of a nice safe ring/gym, and probably not even that in 90% of the fools who are going to post in this thread.

Me, if I have no possible escape route, I just hope my phone and wallet is worth the cost of their eyeballs and never having children (in fact, I'd probably be doing society a favour there).

On the street you fight to end the fight and save your ass, not to make yourself feel like Chuck Norris, not to be a badass or look cool... life is not a movie.

As for carrying self defence weapons, fuck me that list you gave is a bit overboard dude, are you Batman?

YOU GOT KEYS, PENS/PENCILS, LIGHTER? (bet you can't guess what that's good for, look it up).

You got keys, they got balls. You got a pen, they got eyeballs, nice soft necks/faces, you're just as well armed as them.
Let's see them mug you with a sharpened 2b pencil jutting out of their jugular.

Whatever it takes... what's your life worth to you?

You got walls, pavement, concrete and metal all around you, they just want your valuables... you want to live.

Whatever it takes.

You don't need to be strong or trained or even all that tough, you just need to have a greater desire to survive than they do to rob you.

You just be a fucking ANIMAL.

All this goes doubly so if they have a gun, because you are most probably dead... so sell your life dearly, make them regret it for the rest of theirs.
