It's sounds mayabang pakinggan but you have to consider before it even reaches that situation , I will be doing my best to deescalate using my irresistable charm
I would just like to second the motion Allegra's suggestion.
Do you best to avoid/deescalate/make a major altercation into a minor one into oblivion.
Training physical and mental conditioning to fight does not mean you use what you learn in the dojo for putting up a fight.
Quite the opposite is true.
For those who are really listening to what your Sensei is saying.
The highest form of Martial Arts is being smart and alert enough to foresee and avoid trouble at all times!
In fact, the secret of earning your degrees in black belt is in showing integrity, by being selfless, sacrificing, helpful and loyal.
Some good fighters can't understand why they're not getting promoted
inspite of the level of skill they have achieved in fighting and the number of wins in tournaments.
An nth degree blackbelt guru was once put in a fight with 3 streetpunks (who had knives).
When they found the guru dead, his fingers and toes were cut-off.
Sure the 3 punks were black and blue, but the guru died from the ordeal, regardless of his martial arts skills.
The moral of the story is that fighting on the streets is different from fighting in the dojo.
When faced with armed opponents, one does not rely on his arms alone like what JetLee does in the movies.
He looks for weapons, he tries to escape and call for help.
We would not have lost a (sense) teacher if not for the incident of pride (of all the parties involved).
If we are all humble in our attitude, then there would be less fighting.
Sometimes, robbery is not the reason for mugging.
Sometimes, people are just plain envious of what others have achieved in life, that they rather erase that person's existence than improve their own.
And that is the problem with "CRABS" (alimango).
Btw, the word is irresistible, Allegra baby. Lesson in English 101.
You used the word "deescalate" correctly in the sentence.
I'll say it a million times:
The best self-defense gadgets are your feet.
Move away from trouble if you can.
Be courteous and generous to a fault.
If put to a corner fight back, make sure he won't be able to stand up again once you put him down.
I mean permanently as in RIP.
Like Tolits said, you can get legal counsel later, what matters is that you stay alive and get home.
