I have a black belt and have never encountered a problem. Come to think of it I have brown belt too. I use to have a maroon belt but I lost it somewhere. If anyone found a strange maroon belt unde

But what if someone's belt or pants are too tight and they can't readily reach into their sock...

Riding a Jeepney or walking in Colon is no rieskier than doing such things anywhere else in the world. 98% of mankind is nice and friendly - the 2% stupids you meet everywhere.

Unfortunately most of that stuff doesn't hold up in the real world.

It really does

 

As long as you can get the bad guys to attack one at a time. Oh, and no knives, guns, chains,  clubs.

Good morning Lamoe.

I have been around and trained in TMA's (traditional martial arts) and if you practice it correctly then yes it works good.  You throw a punch where the other guy wants you to and he blocks, perrys or moves out of the way. It looks pretty and works in the gym.  Or guy one throws a punch and guy number two grabs it and bends the wrist. incapacitating guy number one. 

 

In real life (I have also been around a bit of this) people dont move the way you want them to.  People dont act like they do in a dojo when they are on the street.

I can faint with a jab and throw a right cross hitting a TMA guy and bring my arm back before he has time to block me. There have been many a black belt who got whooped by a street fighter.

Now Mixed Martial Arts or kick boxing(some first hand experience here as well)  these work good on the street.

I agree - my point was they always show 4 to 10 guys attacking one at a time  - BS

Not trying to be as a$$ or argue but being a rather small person AND very cautious  - I always carry  a 2/3 M collapsible baton (found a Man Bag with side holster for it) along with  a 5 M range pepper spray. At if we're walking at night - see post about getting back from Seaside - I do have both out and ready

Me and Big John

"If the left one don't get ya - then the right one will"

If I know you're coming :unsure:

 

We practiced  the time honored technique  called "Dog Pile"

I do Karate and Arnis myself 

Holding up multiple attackers is only a matter of how much you trained - because the training you do is only to build up your reflexes. DONT think that you DO martial arts in a fight - you wont have the time to think about what move to do !
What you do is teaching your body the moves over and over again - and in case of a fight you have the ready programmed as reflexes - YOU dont think at all - your subconsciousness does the fighting !
All YOU need is enough stamina to last for a couple of minutes in a fight.

Same for Arnis - even I still only know basic moves I now lost being afraid of someone attacking me with a knife - because I know how attackers will usually attack and I know how to defend against those moves in case I ever happen to get attacked.

But I also can carry my Arnis stick anywhere - even in malls - its just a rattan stick - not a weapon.

But I know how to use - and if someone attacks me and sees that I KNOW how to use it - 90% of all attackers will be smart enough to leave it that way - the 10% bugos then I have to fight - but Im prepared for that - are they ?

Do you carry the stick in the case? Or how do you carry it.

For me it's more like -"Are you really that happy to see me?"

Maybe 50% of the time mall guards will point  at the baton  - I just say "baton"

Only once has a guard wanted to confiscate it (and not get it back?) - said

"I checked with police - it's OK"  I actually did at main PNP facility on Osmena BUT like many laws here it's a yes and no depends who you ask - also like in US  - some places yes  - some no.
