Well I personally would run but if they started chasing me I would begin to cry and scream for help. If no one comes to my aide and by this time I'm probably tired because I can't run for nothing , I would see if I could spot something I could use for a weapon. If all else fails I would jump on my assailant with my adrenaline acquired ninja skills and beat the crap out of him. Then I would walk home and tell myself, "That's what you get for going outside today." and not go out for a month.

Violent situation? Are we talking life threatening? If we are then I'm fighting. If not then it will be flight for me. It really depends.

Um...I don't think that quote pertains to this discussion

Anyway, I usually choose fight, and stupidly so. I am the kind of person who would charge at someone with a gun, going to probably end up getting myself killed one day.

In my current condition I don't have the speed to get away unless the environment is favorable to creating obstructions behind me. I do have the closing burst for short distances to hopefully quickly end a fight with a hard hitting off-balancing move and escape. I'd rather avoid conflict entirely as I wouldn't want to take any hits, but I can take hits and avoid them when possible to counter.

I'm going off the assumption that whoever would assault me is confident they have a chance of defeating me and would have the physical capability to match. Against any other unarmed attacker I might be more willing to stand my ground.

Against armed assaults the decision lies on distance:

Short (<10yds): Close the distance and disarm
Medium(10-20yds): Either the former or latter option depending on the environment
Far(>20yds): Escape

I've gotten into a few scraps growing up, but never lost one. I was the small kid who people thought would be easy to push around, until they found out I fought dirty, and was hella good at it.

Now, I'm not as open to conflict. If fighting for myself, I'd leave. But, if fighting for someone I care about, I'd finish it whether to my or my opponent's detriment.

I've never been in that kind of situation where I'm needed to make that kind of decision.

I've only been in 2-3 fights in my life so far and I've won them

But depending on the situation and the amount of danger I'm in, I'd 9/10 choose fight.

I prefer my chances of winning a fight instead of a race. Just remember when fighting the goal is to survive so everything goes.

Lol, this reminds me of middle school were we'd have fights like this to determine who's the strongest in the class. We'd do it outside of school so nobody interferes.

That was year 6, best year ever. Wed go home that Friday looking invigorated.

Depends if I can legally kill the other guy. If yes, then fight. Other wise, run. Don't see much point in fighting unless I kill the other guy.
