modern fighting

Firstly lets confirm that we’re not condoning fighting, but you’d be delusional to believe that it’s a completely avoidable event.

Even the least confrontational man you can imagine gets put in a potential fight situation now and again, there’s always one idiot who’s too drunk or who’s had a bad day that you simply can’t account for.

So how do you deal with these situations when they arise?

 

The Thinking Man

It’s easy to lash out and start swinging wildly, and most people would tell you that this is a poor tactic for technique purposes. But we’re going to tell you this is a poor tactic for financial and law purposes.

People will say, don’t put too much into a punch just in case you miss, but what about if you connect?

People die every year from street fights where the intention was not to kill one another. This is obviously bad for both individuals, one is no longer alive and the other is facing 16 years plus for manslaughter.

Even if you only do minor damage, you’re still looking at a lawsuit or some form of a backlash due to the culture that we live in today. It’s simply not worth it.

We’re not saying avoid confrontation at all costs, this isn’t possible in a world filled with competitive people. So what can you do instead?

 

Brush Up On Your Arts

Most people resort to their fists or very occasionally their feet/head in a street fight, but all of these body parts can do severe damage.

There are far more arts to learn than just striking.

You could choose judo, BJJ even Wrestling. Once you acquire a high level in these art forms, it becomes a lot easier to constrain someone without using excessive force.

These arts are all about bodyweight, balance, angles, momentum and distance. It’s a very smart strategy, it means that you can disable an opponent without facing legal issues after the fight.

This is the smart man’s approach to fighting. Smart because it keeps you clear of legal backlash and smart because you’ll probably end up winning the fight on top of that.

Everyone’s expecting a punch to be thrown, not many opponents would be ready for a single leg sweep or hip throw.

We know this is the smartest technique because it’s what the Police force are taught to do. It enables them to tick both boxes, deal with the issue and avoid ending up in court, or worse, jail.

Remember, in the modern era, when punches are thrown, nobody ends up winning. You either end up in jail, a hospital or worse a coffin. It’s not worth the risk, especially when there’s so much more to be done and enjoyed in life.
