Well if someone means to do me harm then I'll be fighting to seriously maim them.

I would rather walk away if I could. Like everyone else I would fight if I were left with no other choices. I don't believe in physical violence or any violence period. Words are not weapons even if they can sting at times. Words only have the power that you allow them to have and I would never get in a physical confrontation over something so stupid. I'm not a child. I can take it. About the ONLY thing that could make me want to swing on someone would be if they're abusing a woman or a child. I've nearly been in several fights over seeing that crap and got into a sort of fight over a parent just wailing on their kid in the Walmart parking lot. That one went well beyond discipline which is why they were arrested.

I don't really care much about me unless there's violence involved then I'll do what I have to but when it comes to other people I can and will get angry enough to fight. Just seeing anyone abused especially the young or weak makes me see red. That's especially true of animals. I wouldn't be able to just stand there if someone was abusing a dog or cat and would probably end up in jail over it. Other than that I try to do the right thing and just walk away. Even in those really extreme examples I would try to call the police and let them deal with it if I'm able to. I just don't believe in putting your hands on someone else. We have the most potent weapon known to this world in the form of our brains and we need to learn how to better utilize it.

That's pretty cool. Sparring with each other is a very positive way to let off a little steam.

I never understood the whole taking punches thing. Like if a person is punching the living shit out of another person who just stands there and takes it. The person won't punch back at all and just accepts getting hit. They won't cry or whimper. They'll remain silent and strong as they're getting the shit knocked out of them. That weirds me out. Most people would have fought back to defend themselves but not those guys. They'll just take a punch and walk away.

This happens a few times in anime and manga. It's not even cowardice because it's mostly bravery. But it's so weird to just let yourself getting beaten to a pulp and not even punch back. Is it pride? Is defending yourself not worth it?



Back to the topic: I'll probably walk away but if the person comes at me then I'll defend myself.

I will never fight anyone for name calling or anything, but the second someone makes a threat against my family I will give them no mercy and damn the consequences.

Only got in one fight in my life, kid attacked my brother on the bus while in elementary school, I took care of him.

A few other close calls though, but when I was ready to throw down, the other guys chickened out. You know what they say about all bark and no bite


Yeah< I have a policy on the fighting rule ...if I am not willing to die for it ...then I am not willing to fight for it.

If it's something you are willing to die for ...then you fight otherwise ...no.

I mean, anytime you fight, you take a risk that you will be killed. You also take a risk that other people in your family can be killed.

Had a cousin ...beat up another kid, and that kid went and got his family members but because they couldn't find him ...they beat up his brother instead ..almost to death. What was the fight over? A GIRL...so really no. If I am not willing to die for it, then I am not willing to fight for it.

Call me weak, call me a chicken ...but in reverse ...what it means is when I fight ...I plan to take it to the extreme to make sure you don't come back for more. It shouldn't be anything less than broken limbs, and a trip to the hospital by the end of the fight.

?? That's crazy talk, fighting has nothing to do with strength or bravery. I'll fight at the drop of a hat and I'm in my 50's. However what I will fight for makes all the difference. I will fight at the drop of a hat in order to save someone under assault, anyone who tries to strike me. Someone verbally abusing the elderly may get arm barred. I have walked away from plenty of conflicts, because they were too stupid to comprehend or the other party had something to prove. If they have something to prove, I just say that they must be a badass, and I'm to old and weak to fight, take the "coward" stance and walk away. Better to walk away than open up with a full barrage on some poor person having a bad day. Look, most people just want to feel good about themselves, and want to save their ego. Sometimes it's just best to let them have it their way. They walk away feeling better about themselves and you walk away knowing that you were in control. There's no other use for fighting. I only ball my fist during training, walking away is a sign of training and control.

Not physically, no. It's too much effort.

Seldom with words either, I won't force myself to convince someone else to see things my way, i'll merely value my answer above all and disregard whatever thought they believe. It's unpleasant and too much effort to argue as well.


So, nope! I will not get into a fight.

I'm not sure if such a thread existed. If something unreasonable occurs, will you get into a fight or will you walk away?


Considering my nature and past experiences, I fight.

I can't stay quiet when something or someone bothers me.

If someone is threatening my well being, then yeah. If that person is just trying to instigate something by saying or doing stupid shit, then no. I would just walk away.
