I got my ass kicked last weekend by an ROTC asshat

    Totally got moped up and down the university drive. I've never been in a fight in my life and also generally I'm all about peace and love.

    I'm starting mma kickboxing + lifting weights now. Only because i want to be able to defend myself.

    edit:-----

    here's basically what happened. sorry i didn't elaborate earlier, i was kind of busy and had to put this down to vent a little steam.

    it was me, that guy (who i'll call E) and my other friend (that i'm calling J). it was j's birthday so i was celebrating with him and we were hanging out with e and two other girls. now i had hung out with e for a while so i thought we were fairly cool - but something about him just wasn't right. plus all my other friends had warned me about him.

    alright, so fast forward through the night, we escort the girls back to their dorm and proceeded to go back downtown. along the way i realize j's had a few. i'm trying to take care of him because he literally cannot stand. at the same time, i'm trying to hold a discussion with e - it was nothing important. i wasn't heated and i am actually a generally nice guy. anyway e starts telling j that he wants to fight me or something and i basically have NO clue why. i've had a few drinks so i'm like - welp, bring it.

    got moped up. cut my left big toe pretty severely so i had to get stitches at the hospital.

    generally i'm going to avoid the guy, but i NEED to be able to defend myself from asshattery. i already semi-lift and now i'm just going to add that + yoga and mma kickboxing (sorry, living in the stix in va, nothing fancy around here :( ). that's basically it. thanks for reading my thread.

    i feel totally like a pussy and need to get my head on straight.

    no weapons please, i'm not trying to spend life in jail. if they pull one out i'm sprinting the fuck outta there.

    Yeah, unless the ROTC guy was a psycho and just jumped you out of nowhere, there are some missing parts of this story.

    Get a knife. Cheaper than a gun ~$15 at walmart, and you can carry it with you everywhere.

    You should be crazy to use a knife... Never in my life I will it.

    Knives are safer than guns for the user in close combat. But, I don't think you need a knife or a gun (except in your house for intruders.) I'm all for peace and love and all that jazz too, but training is good for anyone. I took kickboxing for three years and it helped me quite a bit. Quickly stopping someone is all about pressure points.

    It's not normal to just walk around public with weapons waiting to get your ass beat LOL. Seriously, I don't think a few classes could hurt.

    Don't listen to the dicks in this thread saying get a weapon , their pussy's! your doing the right thing taking up mma, 6 months training and you'll have enough confidence and skill to defend yourself. No one takes 3 knee's to the face without sleeping.

    Where are you located? There are a few guys on this very forum that are in MMA/BJJ (Jiu Jitsu) and can give you some good recommendations. In fact depending on where you live I might be able to steer you in the right direction.

    I take that times about 20 each Muay Thai practice.

    Time to chime in:

    1) For Self Defense I suggest Krav Maga - It's a Israeli jujitsu all about beating the defending yourself and doing it fast so you can dip out of the problem. Most programs are about 9 months long to becoming a "master".

    Don't do that pussy commando krav maga shit though

    2) Like MMA? Check out the following:

    Wrestling
    Kickboxing
    Muay Thai
    BJJ
    Judo

    Muay Thai and BJJ > everything else.

    How did it start? Were you at all deserving?

    With a weapon there is always the chance you'll get it flipped on you and get yourself killed. If a guy is going to beat your ass, he'll beat your ass.. it is not likely he'll kill you with a beating unless you really make him mad.

    if you have a knife or gun you could drop it, he could take it or hell, even if you do stab him, he could take it out and stab you right back.

    Krav Maga isn't what I'd recommend, though. Like they say... it's Israeli Jiu jitsu...why not just learn jiu jitsu? Take up Muay Thai or something like that and skip the krav maga stuff.

    you'll thank me

    OP,

    I think you have the right idea.....learn some basic self defense and forget the
    ideas about using a weapon. Most of the guys are not considering what happens after the fight....use a knife or gun and possibly look at spending the rest of your life in a very small cell. Better to take a beating and NOT lose your freedom, know what I mean??

    It isn't either or when it comes to weapons and martial arts. Get both. You're a businessman.

    One of the best things about martial arts is the average predator knows
    when you have it and they look for an easier victim. :cool:
    Stay up pewep.
