I'm sure you've honked your horn, yelled inside your car, or flipped someone off some time in your life while driving on the freeway. I was cut off on the freeway earlier this week and gave the guy some choice words and gestures. The guy then followed me off the freeway and told me to pull over to say it to his face, trying to fight. So I said "Sure, pull over". The guy ended up driving off after I pulled into a parking lot... but what would you have done? Some people I know said it was stupid, but I think I know how to handle myself. I pulled into a fairly busy parking lot (Belle Tire... wheel/tire shop) as a first instinct. Witnesses to either contact the police, break it up, etc. I drove off the freeway, and he followed me. Should I drive home so he can see where I live? You can't always walk away. I train at a school that teaches people how to fight for real, but also teaches respect. I know a situation that is an unneccessary fight, and when to defend myself. Walking away is one thing, but I'm not going to walk away when I know I would then get hit from behind. Another friend said to me "One of the first lessons of any good martial arts school should be that fighting is an absolute last resort". But I go to a gym that trains people to fight. Because my school does not stress non-violence, that does not make it a bad school... far from it. People go to different schools for different reasons; Muay Thai, CSW, and BJJ are combat sports. I don't spar and learn how to fight to never fight. I would prefer to never use it on the street, but I will and have. What do you guys think?
