I'm usually a pretty peaceful guy. Even when people piss me off a lot, I never do anything, and just walk away. However, there have been, maybe 2 times in my life where somebody has tried to hurt me, and when I tried to defend myself, I've been incompetent. For example, a few years ago, in junior high, a person was holding the door shut when other people were trying to get in. (It was raining outside). I walked up to the guy and told him to stop. He proceeded to punch me in the nose, and when I tried to punch him back, I missed and he kicked my balls. Ouch. The other time, a guy spilled an entire drink all over my shirt. Then he proceeded to start laughing. I told him to apologize, and when he wouldn't, I slapped him. (whoops shouldn't have done that). He proceeded to grab me and throw me to the ground, then started to punch my head until literal KO. Ouch. The third time, I won't go into too much detail, but I got tripped by a 4th degree taekwondo black belt while I was eating a pizza. As you can imagine, my face was covered in pizza sauce, and I got angry and got my ass beat yet again. So you can see when it comes to fighting I'm incompetent. However, haven't got into a fight for many years, and fighting isn't something that happens frequently at all. Well, I hesitate to call these "fights" since they are just me getting completely wrecked. But yeah, I considered getting some martial arts training, but my parents are not conducive to that idea. Carrying weapons is completely illegal and extremely dangerous so I can't do that. But is there any means that I can protect myself better in the future?
Oh yeah, I know the "JUST DON'T GET INTO FIGHTS" mentality, which I respect. But sometimes, once in a while, it happens (when you meet retarded people). I don't want to get fucked that badly again. And, I don't expect this shit to happen any more because all of the above happened somehow as a result of this unfortunate thing called PE class. But, still I don't want to be completely helpless and useless.
