Well I finally got to use the guard in a streetfight.
Last night in Pacific beach me, my sister and a couple buddies were in about the middle of the line to get into the tavern.
My sister is told by the bouncer to get in line cause she is standing about 2 feet outside the line, no big deal. The problem started because he started mad-dogging my sister like he was gonna punch here! She has some colorful tatoos and gets some looks normally, but this bouncer was on such a power trip he just had to give the "I will smash you look". Well as big brother I said so do you want to punch her or what, why the mad-dog look? He glares at me and said well you can stand in line but you are not going in.
Well I hate waiting in line, I hate power tripping bouncers, and so I had to tell him that he was a pussy on a power trip and that this is bullshit. As we get out oif line he still gives the tough guy stare and I remind him that he is still a power tripping pussy and he should talk to me in the parking lot about it. Well he waves for his back-up and they follow me to the parking lot.
Fat, angry, bouncer boy walks up towards me gets about two feet away and gets my elbow in his mouth cause he started to lift his arm like he could swing.
It was not a good elbow he just caught the end of it, we get in a clinch and my shirt gets caught in his hand and starts to go over my head, right then I decided to just go defensive and I was looking at his knees and feeling his balance to see if he was going to swing or knee me. I knew the other bouncer was right there and would jump in if I start kneeeing and elbowing this guy. Any way I end up on the ground, I think I just got off balance when my shirt went all the way over my head and came off. Fat boy is on me right away in guard. Right away I start to pivot and It does not feel good on my back, I can't really get my hips out so I just get a real high guard and start to work a triangle but he is too fat, and I can't get a good angle. I switch to his arm and secure it, start to extend his arm feel the asphalt in my back, my sis ter then jumps on his back smashing into the asphalt a little more and stacking him (thanks sis) the other bouncer jumps in, grabs my leg, fat boy pushes my sister into a car after one leg is peeled off him. She gets some scratches from the bumper of a bmw, 3 rd bouncer comes up and grabs me as I stand up and I just relax.
They call the cops, take a bunch of pictures of his lip, sit me in the car, tell me I am going to jail, let me go with a ticket and court date.
That was just about the worst conditions to play guard, no shirt on, fat strong guy on top, on asphalt.
It was probably only 20-30 seconds total, but he never even got close to attempting a punch in the guard. My back got the worst of it, just a big light scratch over most it. Pivoting was the bitch, I have long legs so high guard worked.
Guard is good for the street in some ways, defense from getting hit by a much bigger guy, subs are there but you are going to just have to sacrifice your body, the biggest difference is that pivoting smooth just does not happen the asphalt and skin just stick to each other.
No shattering bats or seven attackers, nobody even got hurt, legaly,physically, thats the best outcome.
I still can't stand punk ass power tripping security.
