    What have you learned from your own experiences of real fighting?

    That fighting is bad.
    That when two tigers fight, one is killed and the other is maimed.

    Really, what kind of question is that?

    That the Street Thugs only moves are Tackle and Haymaker, and gives +30 experience when defeated.

    That fights are scary, can kick off quite easily but can also be avoided when you see the signs.
    Main point to take away: when your friend is being a nut to someone, jump your friend and pull him away.

    i have yet to meet anyone who has been in a real fight talk about it publicly to strangers.

    trained people will hardly ever talk about it. unless you have low self- esteem.

    One guy tried to throw dirt in my eyes,
    Another tried swinging his belt at me.

    Those are things you said someone did, your question was what has one learned so--what have you learned from fighting?

    1.) That it never goes exactly as planned

    2.) That loosing is part of the equation as well as winning

    3.) Avoiding is better than engaging

    4.) It gets "old" as you get old

    That there are many attacks that they don't show you in a dojo.

    I think this is a balanced question

    I'd answer the question with a question....

    Are your powers of observation and perception so poor that you can't avoid 99% of fights?

    This is a question from a guy who claims to have defeated five opponents in one fight, and a guys that has been training and teaching with some of the best martial artists in the world.
    Seriously flawed if you ask me.
    Anyone who has done martial arts and has come anywhere near a real situation has taken a long hard look at themselves and their chosen art.
    The feeling of weakness is horrible and the, "what could I have done better?", goes round and round in your head.

    I call into question the OP's experience; based on the way the question is worded and subsequent replies.

    And how with all of your experience have you arrived at that conclusion?

    define a real fight. i've never had to fight for my life or anything close to that because i can talk my way down or i get into minor scraps.

    actually, why am i bothering, i've read your other posts in other threads and im not impressed.
    It would be insightful if you could address dormindo's or Simon's posts.

    Insightful seems to not be the goal
