    I would immediately be lead to believe that you are either immature or violent. Both of these things scream lack of intelligence.

    Conclusion: rise above it.

    A massive turn off. The martial arts training, yeah great, I guess that shows a certain amount of talent and commitment. But scrapping? It's pointless and immature.

    Unless you follow 'only once or twice to stop these chavs' with 'when I was a kid/younger/a little boy' then I will be put off.

    I would get the impression you were immature and unable to control yourself (not saying you are, just about guys who scrap in general).

    personally speaking, yes its a turn off just cause it automatically makes you seem violent - even though the fights may not have been your fault - its just how it comes across.

    "once or twice to back up my friends" will make it look like your friends were the one in the fight and makes you look a good buddy too.

    cool, which it has been every time

    i find the martial art lifestyle addictive. Started out with one lesson a week, and gradually grew. Love the whole discipline and self-control aspect of the older arts combined with the fun and awesomeness aspect of more modern style arts. you like martial arts too?

    Yuss I've done shotokan karate for 6 years now, I am a major addict, I use to train like 4/5/6 times a week but couldn't train so much over time cause of work and other stuff so now it's down to about 3. I love the discipline and the whole conditioning your body to make it do what you want, when you see that your technique is spot on it feels amazing =] if I had the time and money I'd take up kendo, aikido, muay thai, ju jitsu, wing chun, ninjitsu. Anything really. I'd LOVE to devote my entire life to learning martial arts. Unfortunately no one will pay me to do that =[

    I was at a stage where I was scouted for the JKA (my organisation) england squad but it was right in the middle of A levels so I couldn't commit to it cause I'd have to train all the time. Also the England squad were a bunch of *********, the most 2 faced people I have ever met in my life so having spent a lot of time training with time I didn't really want to be a part of them.

    What do you do?

    Offering someone a cigarette diffuses all the situations I've been in. Even ones where knives or worse have been drawn. If they don't smoke, asking them to come in for a drink and a talk over sorts it out.

    Ah, good old martial arts. Creates massive lulz when it utterly fails, which is a fair few times in my experince.

    The above comes from a friday/saturday night out set of experinces. If the OP is speaking during the day (EDIT: Missed out the a in day!), then epic lulz to you sir.

    Wouldn't it make it also look like your friends were all immature/violent/unable to control themselves, which is what most of the girls are saying completely turns them off?
