I can only think of 2 offically, I dont think it counts if you get into fights when your young or with no combat experience since you were never properly trained unless it was a vigilante situation or a must fight situation.

So using any of the facets of MMA, JJ, Kickboxing, Wrestling, or what have you, has anybody ever had to?

i guess i never really HAD to but i when i drink its hard not to get pissed. Generally at bars watching UFC events with other loud idiots my boxing seems to emerge and its never my f'ing fault! its usually my bro that shoots off his mouth. thats happened quite a few times in the past couple years. thankfully the cops around here arent to concerned with two dudes brawling so no convicitions of anything yet.

Yeah, ive been in a few street fights where my training has helped... i dont train much anymore but i used to do boxing briefly, and Muay thai for a few years.

Ive been jumped for my basketball before by two dudes, luckily where im from alot of the people who do things like that cant fight well and usually show up in huge packs of people to compensate. I had a black eye a sore jaw and bruising on my cheek but i was able to win that fight with ALOT of footwork, leg kicks, a right, and a single leg that luckily dumped the last guy on his head.

Other than that all my fighting experience has either been in the gym, with friends, or having to do with school in some way. Luckily in school the only people that know how to defend a takedown are on the wrestling team. , guillotine chokes are really easy to get when people dont know to watch out for them.

Not since I started training Muay Thai. I think of the benefits of training in a Martial art, and something that should be impressed on all students of the arts, is that yes, the learned student now has the ability to easily deal with thugs on the street, but just because he can does not mean he should.

Once you know you can defend yourself in a fight, you should be more confident in finding other ways to solve disputes. I for one, would not want someone to sustain the kind of injuries a Thai boxer could give them unless they absolutely had to.

Some guy was ******* with me all day, I had some food I was eating, he smacked it out of my hands and to the ground, so I got up in his face, but I'm rather sensible, he's 17 or 18 and stronger then me, I'm 15 and would probably get me ass kicked, so I walked away and called my then girlfriend, 'bout minutes later the same guy comes up takes my phone out of my hand and start runnng, I got in front of him, and sce I'm terrified of getting hit, I pulled guard, the guy was shitfaced, so I was able to get his back with ease, I put on a Rear Naked Choke, but was pulled of by some of my friends before I could choke him out.

For the record, I have no formal MMA or JJ training, but I do own some JJ books(Eddie Bravo:Unleashed for example) that I study everyday.

Also, I was able to call my girlfriend back so she didn't think I hung up on her like some asshole or something.

Never had to and hope I never will have to. However, I pity the person that lays a hand on myself or any member of my family. I will probably send them to the hospital with at least one broken bone or ligament.

Got in a couple fights, I've taken some boxing and judo classes. The last guy I fought ended up with a concussion, and lost 20% of his eye sight

I've been in some stupid scuffles around the bars, but I've never actually had to go full out on someone. Mostly just throwing a punch here or there to get a dude off one of my friends and then drag a friend out of the fray.

I did a couple boxing smokers while I was in the Army and came out on top in them. One of them I knocked the dude out in like 5 seconds- that was pretty cool.

Other than that just training around the gym and inter-school matches. I'm kind of curious to see how a real fight would go, though. Then again, I'm not itching to kick someone's ass or anything like that. Even if I put in a submission or knocked someone out I wouldn't press the matter and would probably let them go once they realized they were up against someone who knows what he's doing.
