I'm going to make the bold statement that any person who is on a path of spiritual development, is going to be met by some resistance.

Violence should always be avoided, it achieves very little for the human race. Obviously. However sometimes the true Seeker, has these energies thrust upon him/herself, and as an extra precaution, it is wise to know the basics of how to defend ones self.

This is a short guide, to the secrets of fighting that have allowed me to protect myself, and knock cunts the fuck out! (The Author insists that a true seeker will NEVER start a fight EVER! (In fact, starting fights is the absolute best way to get your head smashed in)

So if the occasion would occur, and someone hits you, what do you do? Well, the first thing one has to do is ask oneself "is he going to hit me again?" If a person just hits you once, Perhaps to make a point, and has immediately deflated his desire to do harm to you, best go with the flow, no point in encouraging further violence by hitting back, unless of course, the assault is continuous, in which case, you better gird your loins, caz shit is going down.

Rule number 1 of street fighting: protect yourself. Keep your hands up, in closed fists, about three inches or so from the 'temples' you must protect these soft parts of the head, as well, and very importantly, the chin. If you take a hit to the chin, from the side, even one of medium force will knock you unconscious. This is due to two nerves that are between the hinge of the jaw. When the chin is hit from a side angle, it forces the jaw up into these 'pressure points' and it can instantly send you into un-consiousness. Which brings us to our next rule...

Rule number 2 of street fighting: Aim for the Jaw, or the throat. Don't try and kick them I'm the balls, it doesn't always work and it leave you in a position where they can grab your leg with either their legs or hands, and seriously effect your centre of gravity, of which this centre is the key to all your strength, because without it, your about as effective as a butterfly trying to headbutt a mountain. And this brings us to our next point..

Rule number 3 of street fighting: Do not allow yourself to lose balance and be knocked to the ground. People have died, from being boot bashed to death, because they were overcome, fell to the ground and got a steel cap boot right in their head. (Those who fight in this style are usually very cowardly group attackers). If you go down, protect the temples and jaw, and use your legs to kick as hard as you fucking can, your already on the ground and losing so now would be a really shit time to show restraint. KICK THOSE MUTHA FUCKERS. In the knees. As hard as you canand look for an opperunity to get up as fast as possible, you are much less likely to suffer serious head injury, if your standing up. The goal at the end of the day, is to make it through this situation with the minimal damage done to yourself. That's the only reason your fighting. Sometimes you may have to hurt another person in order to be safe yourself, however you should never forget your primary objective, getting out of there alive. Which leads us to our next very important rule of fighting.

Rule number 4 of street fighting: Learn how to through a hit. Reading this is a good start but you should always practise. An effective punch uses as much of your body weight behind the hit as you can, it will be aimed at a sensitive area such as the ones mentioned previously, it should also, and this is the most important aspect and the one that will keep you alive, 'follow through'. When your arm is at full stretch, your fist should not only reach the persons body to hit them, it should continue to move THROUGH the persons body, as if punching a punching bag that is behind them, don't over-do it, however this technique is invaluable and has saved my ass many times and is a paramount skill to learn if you want to protect yourself. Even large scary men, can drop like a sack of potatoes, if struck in the side of the jaw with a follow through hit. Most people cannot hit, if you do get in a fight, and it becomes clear that they are aware of this technique, I highly suggest simply running. Even a small person who knows this technique can be very effective at fighting, and a large person could quite literally be deadly, if they have a lot of weight on their fist and arms and they follow it through to your throat or temple. Practise this style of punches, following through on your hits, it can keep you, and sometimes those around you, alive. Which touches on our next point.

Rule number 5 of street fighting: be aware of who and what is around you, at all times. Multiple enemies can cause serious problems very quickly, most especially, if you don't even know they are there. Be smart. Be aware. Don't put yourself in an environment that makes you vulnerable to attack from multiple sides. Don't let anyone behind you. Consider other environmental factors, am I standing against a hard wall? They could smash my head back against it, your enemies will use the environment (most especially the cowardish ones) and it's your responsibility to use it as well. Or at the very least, to be aware and ensure that the environment does not cause you a disadvantage. Be aware as to wether or not there are weapons around. Do not fight people who are holding weapons. Your not a kung-fu expert, your an armature street fighter and a steel pole will make short work of you.

This are the very basics, I could go on all day but this is not a paid course so this is all your get :p

Love you all, take care of yourselves.

People who inflict pain on others without thinking is because they have not experienced much pain this is my experience. People who would kill another human without thinking it is because their life is cheap and they have never meditated on what life or death is.

So if someone tries to hit me for no reason I know it is because they have never experienced pain, they are cheap in their character and they think nothing of personal sovereignty.

Let me explain more about that last point. The person who would freely hit you is the same person who will freely impose their speech upon you even if unwanted, is the same person who thinks nothing of taking something that belongs to you, is the same person who thinks nothing of damaging something that belongs to you...is the same person who thinks nothing of invading your personal space or hitting you.

These people are usually cowards and when they finally experience pain their true cowardly nature comes rushing to the surface as they scramble to get away.

So how would I deal with such a person, as a seeker of truth it is also my job be a teacher when I can. In this case I will teach them what pain is. I will counter attack absolutely ferociously, I will put the fear of death into them, I will make them piss down their trouser leg, they will witness the flame kindling in my eyes... In short I will teach them what reality is and after knowing this they will think a second time before they will ever think about hitting someone again.

Rule one for street fighting: There are no rules in a street fight.

Spit, bite, hair pull, everything goes... the person who's still standing despite whatever method of fighting or violence was used is the winner. The first person to concede is the loser.

In other words: "What matters is not who is right, but who is left."

That's what Ed Parker said, the founder of American Kenpo and my teacher's teacher. :)

I hate fighting but understand the importance of protecting yourself. When I was younger people would always try and start shit with me. Most of the time I would just ignore the people who would try and start fights, just walk away getting called a bitch, pussy, faggot etc. Other times I was the dumbass who got his ass kicked for trying to stop a fight before it started.

One time while trying to prevent a fight I got hit in the head multiple times from behind by two guys with skateboards. After a few knocks to my dome, I heard a loud ringing sound and my right arm dropped to my side, couldn't lift it anymore. I turned around and the look on the guys faces was priceless. They were very surprised that I didn't get knocked down by their cheap shots. Though it was pretty scary not being able to protect my head or life my arm for awhile. Thankfully my bros were there to help.

Then over time things got more serious with people pulling out knives and guns so I decided to take a few classes on self defense. If you're in a situation and you can run away like ElixirMixer says do it. If not here are some tips to add to these great rules.

1. If they have a weapon and your inside or outside try to get away. If you cannot get away or run, always put something between you and the attacker for example a car or truck, one of their buddies, table, tree. If you're inside like in a house or restaurant a chair is a great way to defend yourself and others from a knife/weapon attacks and they are everywhere. Try and use the chair to push the attacker back while trying to stab that attacker in the head/face with the legs of the chair. Kind of like one of those lion tamers.

This guy is holding back a lion with the same technique but it wont work against a gun. Don't try and defend against a gun just get the fuck out of there.

2. Balance is the very important like ElixirMixer said so you want to keep your leg stance wide and keep your knees bent. If not it will be easy for you to lose your balance and get knocked down to the ground.

3. If you are caught in a situation you can't get out of look for weapons around you and use them to defend yourself and inflict as much pain/damage on the attacker as possible. A few examples a chair, pen/pencil, bottle, pipe, lamp, stick, rock. If they try to take your weapon from you and you feel like you can't prevent this. Throw the weapon as far as you can or hide it where they cannot find it so they can't use it on you.

Another good technique is what Musashi Miyamoto taught me in his book The Book of Five Rings.

When an aggressor is approaching you, look at him in the eyes calmly with restful eyes, and with your spirit unexcited. Musashi Miyamoto says this will cause your opponent to adapt a calm spirit or, calmer, and if you time it right, hit him fast and hard with an aggressive and excited spirit which will inevitably catch him off guard, but Musashi Miyamoto says that one inevitably wins with their eye, and through timing.

I can see how it works because I've been in a handful of fights and noticed the truth in what he's saying. When one is excited, the other person will likely become excited (my adrenaline tends to flare up around people who are yelling at me, and threatening me... ''excited''), when one person is aggressive (excited) the other person may sense danger, and will become excited... but if one remains calm, and eyes are in a restful position, this will give off a calm vibe which will reach the aggressor and once your reach is in range, an aggressive attack will seem like it came out of nowhere and may catch the aggressor off guard... though I'm only hitting the mere surface, his book goes deep.

I used to be in a kung fu school about 6-7 years ago and learned a lot about martial arts and self-defense. I was there just for the discipline, exercise and spiritual growth. It was without a doubt a hard program with tons of discipline, physical and meditative work. I never wanted to use what I learned there anywhere or on anybody, but once I was forced to do so as the ex of my then gf tried to stab me with a pocket knife. The training paid off and he went to the hospital knocked out and vomiting blood. I did get the upper hand from the situation but felt terrible afterwards about it. Upon lots of meditation I found out that he couldn't be reasoned with and unfortunately it was the only way to deal with the situation. So Elixirmixer is right. Whatever path you've set yourself on, you'll be met with some resistance. For the spiritual aspect it is much more terrible than the physical. How many times do you have to drag your nearly lifeless body into a temple to do meditation or winch yourself up from the comfy sofa to do some energy work? For me these obstacles are nearly always there and as Donald Michael Craig states in his book. "even if you can do a measly LBRP half-ass done it is better than nothing when you are really weighed down by your troubles". The same applies to any discipline we endeavor to take.

Thanks for the technique it does sound exciting, but don't know if I could do that. Musashi Miyamoto sounds wise but I need to work on my spirit, eyes and timing. I'm still learning but hopefully don't have to get in any fights.

Kung fu looks fun. That sounds scary about your gfs ex. I would like to learn more about meditation but don't have much time. Haven't heard of Donald Michael Craig before but I'll check him out.

At that time I was at my prime you could say. Yeah I distanced myself from low vibratory people after finding out who they were, the people that they used to hang with. I can tell you that my schedule at that time was mon, wed and fri at the academy doing exercises and tues, thurs and sat at the buddhist temple doing meditation work. I was feeling like my mind, body and soul were made of diamond at that time. Hard to keep up that schedule but well worth the effort. The rewards were nothing short of amazing. I managed to keep that up for quite a while until I had to let it go. Donald Michael Craig RIP was the author of a revolutionizing esoteric book called Modern Magick. It is circulating freely on the web. It is a best seller.
