I was wondering if any of you have had to use your martial art skills outside of practice or controlled fight due to a confrontation? What was the result? The reason i ask is i work as a security guard at a liquor store in which often confrontations come up. Tonight an angry black man was pretty close to fighting with me over the factt that i asked him for his ID. I honnestly don't know what i would have done if he had jumped me. I want to take some martial art so i feel more comfortable if the a situation arises. I'm just curious if it has helped any of you guys.
