I have a question for guys on TSR. How well do you think you'd hold up in a fight? Watch

    Saw a post on TSR recently from a guy who said he got into a fight on a night out, and got arrested as a result. I know that most people would say that isn't something to be proud of - it probably isn't. Despite that, I actually respect the guy for defending himself. To be honest, I can barely throw a punch, and I'm quite sure I wouldn't be able to take one. The one "fighting art" that I know is one that's been passed down through my family for generations - it's called running the **** away. I think I'm just lucky that I've never really been in a situation where I've needed to fight. I was wondering if any of you guys have been in any situations where things have ended up getting physical? Did you get into trouble or anything?

    As an ex boxer I'd be alright although I never look for a fight as if it went to court given my background I'd be screwed unless it was proven self defense.

    No idea, never needed to fight. These days if someone's willing to fight you in public chances are they have a knife/offensive weapon so it's better to simply run away. The stories you hear of people seem to indicate that if someone's willing to fight you, they'll do enough damage to land you in hospital or dead before backing down.

    When it comes to fighting I follow the wise words of Jeremy Clarkson:

    "I prefer passive resistance, and if that doesn't work, active fleeing"

    I would like to think I could take them out butI guess most people think that? But I would most definitely not run away if I was in that situation.

    Depends, some people are adept at making weapons out of most objects. I'm not sure how good muscle is when you're being carved like a turkey.

    Violence is a horrible thing. I've been in too many fights in my life and would love to never be in one for the rest of my life that wasn't friendly contest.


    The truth is, up to a certain point between muscle builds, there will always be one person who is willing to take it that step too far. That person will win. It might be biting an ear off, it might be a thumb in the eye, or it could be finding a weapon. But there will always be one person that will take it too far, and there are probably a few of those on TSR like there are in most places where humans congregate. It's not a good thing. :indiff:

    I wouldn't fight. I'd just get to the position to restrain them.

    I use to get in to a lot of fights when I was younger up until age 17/18. I would like to think I could handle myself with someone of equal size or just bigger. But it really depends upon the situation.

    I'm fairly muscley but when against a big group, or weapons it's obviously going to be a lot harder
    anyway I've had my fair amount of fights in the past (especially with brother) and know how to defend my self anyway

    Pretty badly, unless I get the first hit in which case I'd probably aim to break a knee and run away
