Just a glance at morning newspaper can give you many headlines concerned with crime and street violence. Things are the same with television’s headlines as they all cover with street fighting and rising criminal rates. Violence are raising in almost every issue, be it religion, social crime or petty crime.
The bitter truth of street violence therefore stares at every one of us in the face, whether we like it or not and it would be better to be aware of it and prepare to deal with it than to which it away as something that may never happen.
State fighting has been prevalent from ancient times and has always been used by those with criminal intent to gain some advantage of the other. In modern times, it has resumed proportions that are more lethal. This is because of the type of weaponry and the effect that they have. This simple and the bitter truth of street brawling therefore is that getting involved in it may cost you your life.
Dealing with Street Fights
Dealing with street fights is not at all easy. This is so because the victim is generally cornered in a situation where there is all else who could help in any manner. Not only that, there are also no rules and the attackers would certainly have no inhibitions in causing grievous injury in case they cannot intimidate and get what they want.
Knowing the Stakes
It is therefore important that one is able to gauge the situation at the earliest and think clearly and rationally as to how to overcome it. When outnumbered, the chances of being injured are very high even if you were the best of the unarmed combat expert. Therefore, whatever way one takes it, the bitter truth of fighting in the street is that survival comes first – even at the cost of your ego or your wealth.
