Don't make the fatal mistake of thinking that ANYBODY fights "fair" any more. Those days are over - they have been since the John Wayne era! Expect multiple attackers, weapons, possibly both.

In today's world "fair fight" is an oxymoron. Understand that many people these days have a cocktail of drugs and booze in their veins. It makes them argumentative, aggressive and "Mike Tyson-esque." Avoid people who are "off the planet." Even a casual glance at them can set them off. Leave them with their own demons.

This article just galvanizes our concepts at Chuntian Academy. The fact is most students and even teachers go around thinking traditional karate, sport or technique specific styles such as Aikido are for the street and the real world.

I learned the hard way too, bringing local gym Karate to the street with a massive sense of "False" security. I was lucky I was only a student and low blackbelt in karate. The only thing I injured was my ego. But I am happy it happened as it opened my eyes 25 years ago and I started training in reality based defense way before it became popular in America the last few years. It's hard to believe people still don't understand the differences. There's a great reality school in Shizuoka, Japan www.chuntianacademy.com

Remember, sparring is a game that is basically safe, and no matter how good you get, it isn't fighting. It will teach you balance, movement, range and openings, but it will not prepare you to face death, adrenaline dumps and brutality.

From my experience of living in a dangerous city in America and working in security and having more than 30 years experience in the real world. I can tell you for a fact, most street fights, including bar fights and even road rage fights I have seen are over in about ten or fifteen seconds, usually the person with the fastest and the most attacks wins.

Forget about your Resume, belt color, trophies, The trophy is your life and the attacker could care less about your belt color. Prepare for REAL LIFE. Don't try to be the "One", you may have lucked out so far. Don't set yourself up for humiliation, or death by blinding yourself and your "students" from the truth. Step out of the DOJO and into the real world in every sense of the word. ( Chuntian Academy International )
