I got an email from a buddy of mine that I have known since way-way back in the day, about a fight he got in my old stomping grounds back in D.C. I met this dude at a martial arts class (that our parents were making us take) when I was like 13 and somehow over the years we have managed to keep in touch, one of my Old School boys.
Anyway, he was telling me about this fight he jumped into when one of his buddies was getting his ass stomped like a mo-fo by a steroided up douchebag outside of an Applebee’s. The reason behind the fight was a long-ass boring story that’s not even remotely interesting at all, let’s just say his buddy had been having problems with this guy for years – over a girl of course.
The fight started off pretty mundane, just two idiots trading fists in a parking lot over some broad. And besides his friend getting his ass handed to him, it was just a normal fight until the big dude kept pounding his buddy way after the fight should have been over.
So he started yelling at the big guy “ok dude, he has had enough, just walk away man, you won” – gorilla boy wasn’t even paying attention to him so he kept beating his buddy’s near unconscious body into the pavement.
Not wanting to see his friend get beaten to death in an Applebee’s parking lot (which would have been an embarrassing obituary) my buddy was getting ready to jump-in and go H2H with this fool when he decided to just pick up a brick and throw it at the big dudes head.
BAM – Fight Over, big guy taking a nap in the street.
Anyway, after laughing my ass off I said “sensei didn’t teach us that one bro” - he said “hell no, can you imagine a brick-throwing kata, that shit would be funny as hell dude”
So now besides having a new funny story, I have an additional H2H move in my dirty-fighting toolbox (not that thire is such a thing as “fair fighting” anyway) just incase I happen to see a buddy getting curb-stomped at the local Applebee’s.
