Okay, so recently in a fight next to my house, I was cornered by a guy who, I will admit, I had no chance at beating. My punches did next to nothing, he responded nil to any kyusho, I had no leverage to throw him, and he was always a step ahead of my grappling. There were no weapons to secure, and I had no way to out maneuver him. What did I resort to? My most trusted weapon of all: The tongue. I didn't know what else to do, talking this guy out of wailing on me wasn't going to happen, so I had to resort to sarcasm. I didn't have to worry about getting hit, I managed to avoid enough of his attacks and bend my way out of a fair amount of his locks. So, knowing this, I tried to attack his psychology. I broke into playful insults, random conversation, and at one point broke into song. I realize I took a heavy risk, that by angering and taunting him, I may have caused him to become more hazardous, but I had limited options, and that was the quickest one to me, and it payed off. He started to lose focus and left himself open to a lot. I didn't get to do anything flash, I took him down with a knee to the back of the thigh, which brought him to his knees, then I used an omote-gyaku (wrist throw/lock) to send him to the ground. That gave me enough time to head out and to my house, but I knew that, had I not thought quick enough to annoy him, I probably wouldn't have gotten to leave without harm. My thanks to Tom Jones' It's Not Unusual So, my question to all of you is, what have you done? What secret weapon do you have for winning when the physical part is moot? What situations do you have that are similar to my own?
