Here's another idea to get us back on topic that relates to running away.

Learn the area you're going to be in. Look a map over before you go, and walk around the area. As a motorcyclist, I was trained to ride while looking far ahead of me, anticipating moving obstacles, and planning escape routes. SEE is an acronym for the steps you take: Seek, Evaluate, & Execute.

I'm not encouraging getting into a vehicle if you're being chased, because you'll endanger everyone. Please don't. I'm not even saying resist arrest if your pursuers are real cops. That'll just get you in more shit when they catch you, and they will catch you. I'm just saying keep your head up and look and plan ahead.


As for self-defense, I've studied Tae Kwon Do. Learn to read people's movements to see where their attacks will come from. Watch their stance, their weight shifts, their wind-ups, and either get out of the way of put something there to block. I've never had to sacrifice a forearm bone to block an overhead attack, but I've learned how. It's better than getting knocked in the head. I've also studied Fencing. Learn to parry. Then riposte. And although Chinese internal arts have martial applications, I've studied Qi Gong, Tai Chi, and Pa Kua Zhang as energy practices.

I sometimes fight in real life against cops, when i join demonstrations against new rules from the goverment.

I am very bad at close combat fighting, so, any hints for fighting techniques ?

Some boys from LA told me, do not waste your time learning combat, just buy some AK47 or Uzi, when those corp pigs, or police bastards attack you, just shoot them... Remember Rodney King, LA 1992.
Anyhow, i am not violent, just wanting to defend my selve.


If you want only to defend yourself just use pepper spray easy to use and effective.

You know, lately I've been watching too much TV.
And it's true, tvtropes will ruin your life D:
Exactly as advertised, and that's the issue
Even the forum has commercial interruptions.

the interesting thing was that what they showed in the simpsons in here, was a very nice satire about america, so maybe the revolution already happened.

Winners don't do it.
Also, in most cases, the cops are just waiting and salivating for the chance of kicking some ass.

I met one cop at one bar (I was passing as a guy then) and we started talking and he was like, "I joined the cops in order to kick ass. I don't care about law or whatever."

That scared me, and I left him talking alone. I hope he doesn't remember me.

That's interesting, I had a psychology professor who knew a cop diagnosed with anti-social behavior. According to my ex-professor, the officer claimed to have picked up a hooker for fellatio. While she was sucking, he blew her brains out (with a gun, not his dick). the psychology professor asked the cop why he did it, his response was "I wanted to know what it felt like." Let me point out that this all happened in the back of the police car. How does he get away with it? I have no clue.


Wow, what the hell?

Here's an idea.


How about not getting involved? Thumbs Up


No ideal or belief is worth losing an eye let alone your life for. Especially when you're seeking advice and suggestions on self-defense from this lot.


Self-defense - Take a self-defense course
Legal defense - That's a task only you are responsible for
