Now I've moved away and got a GF and I get so worried being out at nighttime when I'm with her because I know if anything happens I have no
way to protect us other then my fists, I'm sort of skinny and never been in a fight in my life. They can do what they want to me though but my main
worry is if anyone ever touched her.
Most of my fighting experience came from being just like you! I was 120lbs when I graduated high school. I was a little cocky, I always had
good-looking girlfriends, nice cars, and I grew up in a rural area on the edge of an Indian Reservation. For my size, I found it was always better to
strike first than to wait around and see what someone's real intentions were. Looking back, that might have been a bad strategy, but it got me
through at the time.
As I got older, I finally grew up, both mentally and physically. Now, at 240lbs, with my experience as a little guy, I am a force to reckon with, but
I never have to take action. My maturity and size prevents 99.9% of all confrontations.
My advice is to get some experience fighting. Join an MMA club, or take boxing lessons, or just buy some gear and fight your buddies in the backyard.
You'll never know how it feels until you take a few shots to the face and ribs and then continue on. One important thing I've learned is to be
patient. Be patient before the fight, and be patient during the fight. I once got in a fight with this guy, and he got me in a sleeper hold, I was
pretty helpless, I thought I was screwed, but then I noticed, he wasn't hurting me whatsoever, and he was supporting a lot of my weight and wearing
himself out. I just hung there until his arms got tired, when he started to sag, I flipped him over my shoulders, climbed on top of him, and made him
There is nothing wrong with being a little guy, but you have to acknowledge it and play to your own strengths. Awareness and attitude are so
important in every situation.
