It’s the weekend, so you might be heading into a drinking establishment or two.
When you’re in there, watch your back. Depending on the place, things can get dangerous in a hurry.
If things go south and you do get stuck in the middle of a barroom brawl, consider these fighting tips from the new book Bar-Jutsu: The American Art of Bar Fighting …
- Most confrontations can be taken care of verbally. Tell the guy you’re sorry and offer to buy him a drink. Nine times out of ten, this will work.
- If a fight breaks out, there’s nothing wrong with leaving. You’re not a coward if you exit a sinking ship.
- Never strike first. You should only get physical after someone else attacks you.
- Don’t take the fight outside. This puts you at risk and gives your attacker a chance to prepare. The situation should always be finished where it started.
- If you find yourself in a fight with someone, assume he is right-handed and expect an attack with his right hand.
- When someone attacks you, try to get him off-balance as soon as possible.
- Punching someone’s rib cage is pretty much guaranteed to drop him. (MadeMan.com)
