Report Post interesting talks / presentations / conferences in Off-Topic Posted May 17 · Edited May 17 by 0kelvin Translating the story: He is a specialist in Krav Maga, personal defense and public safety. (the guy to the left). He is telling the story of how he was in a car with his wife driving it. Two random guys driving a BMW insulted him, his wife and zigzagged in front of them in an attempt to really provoke he and his wife. At a certain moment both guys stepped out of their car and approached his car in an attempt to start a fight with his wife and/or himself. He stepped out and using his arm extended fowards tried to persuade both guys to go away. At that point there was a crowd watching the whole drama happening in the middle of the street. That guy made the conscious decision to walk backwards to the sidewalk. He did that because he knew that a fight in the middle of the street would mean more opportunities for him to be caugh off guard or from behind. One of the aggressors took the initiative and tried to punch him. He easily blocked it and knocked down the guy. The other guy kept insulting, provoking, but was not brave enough to fight. Later on a woman showed up and started to insult his wife that was still in the car. Another woman came out of nowhere and began to yell that the street fight was an act of racism, that the white guy was beating down two black guys. She started to yell, insult and provoke him. He tried to intimidate the woman in an attempt to make her stop but instead she began an assault, beating him with her purse. He could have attacked her in self defense, hold her arm or something, but he choose to ran away. The furious woman pursued him and they both ran like a cat and a mouse, in circles, around his own car with his wife in there. His reasoning for not touching the woman was this "Had I touched her in some aggressive form, somebody from the crowd could have had missinterpreted the whole situation and it could have spun out of control. I was consciously protecting the crowd, myself and my wife by not giving any chances for somebody to step in, wrongly beliving that it was racism or that I was a crazy guy beating a woman in the middle of the street. Imagine the scenario of a fight that would involve more people from the crowd and could potentially get worse with weapons and people, that were not aware of the situation, getting hurt?". Later he found out that both guys were known troublemakers and that they had just left prison months before the inciddent. Judging by their behavior and even their smell, he's pretty sure that both guys were high. He has a channel and a school dedicated to teach self defense but I think that the most important lesson that he teaches is not how to fight, but how to think before doing anything stupid.
