A brawl comes when it comes the location is not always up to you.
I have had a few in the public bathroom.
People think they can catch you off guard there.
true story, a guy tried to sneak up behind me once as I was peeing (I had to pee real bad, full bladder)
I just turned towards him and kept peeing.
Got him dead center with a big blast of pee, he freaked and ran away.
So I finished emptying my bladder, when I came out he was no where to be found.
you could say that I just said to him, hey piss on you IM busy here.

Pissing on someone - What kind of technique would that fall under? "Grabs??"  "Punches??"  "Tricks??"

I was in the middle of peeing one time and was totally taken by surprise.  A guy came up from behind and punched me in the back of the head, slamming my forehead into the tile wall in front of me.  Thank God for my hard Kaj training and adrenaline, because my head just bounced off and I looked toward him and saw another punch coming, which I evaded.  I evaded strikes for a few moments as I tried to zip up, with no luck on the zipping.  I used a front thrust kick to knock him back but he kept coming.  I finally said F-it and hit him once in the face with my right - automatically raising my left to guard, thanks to training.  He flew back all bloody, my hand had his blood all over it and my pants dropped to my knees.  Just at that exact moment, the bouncer from the club and the female bartender entered the restroom, due to all the noise, etc. and I was standing there with hands up, pants down (though boxers on) and this guy laying on the floor with his friend just standing there in surprise (he was in there too watching but obviously too scared to get involved too).  I got to stay at the club and they got kicked out.

This was in early 1999, a long time ago, and now I am much more aware.  I would've never thought that was going to happen.  I have no clue who he was or why he attacked me, but I was off guard.  Not anymore.  Needless to say, i learned alot from that experience.

Thought it was kind of a funny story, and though I don't really post on here anymore because of all the political stuff, I HAD to share that one.  Have a great day.

Don't look at me?

Like hell am I going there!!!!  I have the 'tude, but I'm no "stall brawler", no way!!!!



Stall Brawler, that's a good one.  Actually, that is very Kajukenbo.  Tournaments and MMA stuff is great, but as far back as I can remember we always escorted each other to the head in a public place for that very reason,  to provide cover so some one doesn't get jumped while taking care of the personal business.  Same for walking people out to their car in a parking lot.  There are some clubs here in Hawaii that practice that religiously, more out of hangin on to a tradition, than really being needed.

a good friend of mine who has trained in tkd and kaju(and is about 5'2" and 125lb) was at a bar one night with her boyfriend, and she went to go use the restroom. as she was in the stall, another woman who was about twice her size opened the stall door and tried to sexually assualt her-was on top of her etc. my friend started yelling, and hitting the other woman. My friends boyfriend, who was starting to wonder what was taking her so long to go pee, had go over to the restroom to check on her, and heard her yelling, so he went in to the restroom, saw what was going on, pulled the other woman off of my friend.
  when my friend was telling me about this, she said that she had never thought about being attacked in the womens restroom by another woman. 
 so be aware of your surroundings and be prepared for the unexpected and watch out for each other 8) ;D

When I was a youngster ( in Hawaii ), I was a "white gi" practitioner and I was always warned by fellow "white gi" practitioners to watch out for the people in black bacause they can fight.  Well, I wanted to be one of them ever since.

Wow!  Those are some awesome stories.  I guess awaerness is the key, which is a cornerstone of our style and reputation. 
To dig further into a subject, if I do have a student who becomes a veteran "stall-brawler", and masters the "bladder-blast" technique as Professor Harper has........


.....can I promote him to golden belt   ;D

Just my silly thought for the day.

Oh yeah, by the way it's not good to choke anything in the public restroom.   ;)

Richie wears a blue gee, maybe he can tell us wha it means.

nah, I'm probably getting an Atama Judo Gi/Kimono. I believe they run different character standards than heavy/medium weight Karate Gi's.
