Street Fight - Can You Defend Yourself?

Street Fight - Can You Defend Yourself?

In general, street fights unfold in a few certain ways. Theres either an extremely quick knockout, loads of swinging punches between the two fighters, or the fight goes to the ground after a while. Street fights are very unfair in some ways, they take no prisoners. The feelings that go through your mind and body when you know you have to fight can be scarey. You feel shakey and weak, not forgeting nervous. Your adrenaline takes over. These feelings are actually helping you, although it may not seem like it at the time.

This is your bodys way of preparing you for a fight or battle of some kind, so don't be scared of it. Everyone feels like this, or has done at some point. These feelings can be controlled, you can use them to your advantage. The fear factor can save you, keep you alert. If you do a Martial Art of some kind, or boxing, you don't feel the same scared feeling, your still nervous but in a different, more prepared kind of way. You feel more alert towards the situation rather then really shakey and scared. This nervous feeling can be overcome with the right mindset, no problem.

Like i have said before, the more you practice fighting, whether it be Boxing sparring or Martial Arts etc, you will be much more at ease when you know a fight is going to happen, rather then it be totally alien to you. It's the same with anything in life, a new job, after a while you get more experienced and become able to do your job better.

If you keep on feeding and working on the thing your scared of, throwing yourself into the fire, you will become so used to it, that after a while it becomes second nature. We are creatures of habit. In order to conquer anything you have to face it full on. The more you face it, the more you become less fearful of it. So then a fight doesn't seem that scarey anymore and it's down to the fact that by training in boxing or martial arts, your confidence has out grown your fear and you know you can defend yourself.

Always try to stay out of a street fight, they are bad news and should be avoided if possible. Never set out to learn to fight just for the purpose of fighting for no reason, just because you know you can. You will never find inner peace, or make many friends this way.

Avoiding a fight should be at the top of your list, but if it can't be avoided, you have to know how to defend yourself, because at some point, it will be needed.
