    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    You are far more likely to need to escalate to H2H force levels than to deadly force, in my experience.

    I have some (albeit a long time ago) H2H training. Not like the more disciplined arts, but along the lines of street fighting. The two most basic principles taught were "If it hurts you, it hurts them." and "The only dirty fight is the one you didn't win.".

    Does having a twin brother count as training? plenty of hand to hand there!
    I don't have any formal training, I won't mind learning once I find time.

    I wrestled in HS and the Navy. About a yr of Gracie ju jitsu. I entered a Tuff Man contest once.....won my first fight in about a min. Next fight....well lets just say I didn't make it out of the first round! I'm 5'10 and about 235lbs. I've had a few fist fights in my time and not afraid to say that it always didn't work out for me.

    A vicious attitude is everything
    Hit 'em where it hurts/disables, always go for the eyes if possible
    Hit 'em hard
    Use any weapon you can bring to hand

    Starting in high school, I took several years of Tae Kwon Do followed by a few more years of an americanized boxing/karate fighting style, and some weapons training (short sword, escrima, chucks, bo, knife).

    I've fallen out of practice recently, but the mindset and lessons learned stay with you.

    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    In an honest to goodness, real world fight...there is no honest fight, it is anything goes, fight to win. Today I would have to take the person out quickly (or at least try) because I would never be able to trade punches for 30 minutes. Just as with a weapon if its a fight, it's for real.

    I totally agree.

    H2H experience gives one confidence and body demeanor that tell BG’s to leave ya alone, and go pick on an easier target.
