How many 'tournament' fighters got knocked out, embarrassed, or beat up thinking otherwise. Remember new people if u get into a fight in the street and must fight, do not think a referee will save u. U are in the street. Trust what ur art says or begs u to do even if its talk, yell and strike, or escape in order to survive. That feeling that comes to ur chest is not fear. Not defending yourself is! Size does not matter, trust me.
