Im with Ninja, I try to keep in balance. Im constantly working on internal battles of fear and reflection regarding the reasons for fighting and how it pertains to myself...and then I train constantly and workout externally, which is also a battle due to pain of training and sparring..fighting injurys which are a constant in this sport!

Yes I have! One time in particular this MMA guy was trying a new trick where he'd stick his hand in my face and puch me back, and I couldnt duck out of it and couldnt reach him.. I got so mad I screamed and attacked! (It helped)

Ya, but it wasnt a jab..it was a grab my face and push me backwards.. (Ive since learned some decent evasive moves to it, but at the time it was very frustrating!)

Arms length, and I learned how to roll back and around his arm. At first, you try to fight or duck it which doesnt work. Also, when I knew what was coming I could kinda trap his arm down as it came in at me y'know?

It was more like a scoop, then a move inward so that my hand would be behind his neck, thus allowing a double strike of palm behind neck and elbow to the face! I learned this move in some drills recently where my trainer was teaching me how to get out of that particular attack of the push to the face!

sounds like a muay thai or silat drill.. very interesting..
does it work? i researched on pencat silat.. and it looks like it's effective on selfdefense situations

i agree.. the harder you push yourself the stronger you become.. internal battles are key factors.. how calm can you be...can you really push through.. will you get passed the fatigue, and physical hurt..to succeed..

to me.. that's a sign of warriorship no matter what background or occupation, or status..
something fighters know.. no matter your in the ring, on the mat, or at home trying to feed yourself, or your family

knowing the sacrifices you must take to gain.. so you see,
the hardest part ..to me.. is can you get up one last time.. one more time.. counter that trap, that choke, that problem prevail
channel all that..
