i called out a half-traveller who damaged my car bout five years ago (after he threw a few digs at me i mite add), a different one, not the one who assaulted me when taxiing that i was talkin bout before, i showed up in a hurling pitch as he asked to meet me there - on my own, no back up, two hiaces and a merc sprinter drove by at the appointed time, i was standing out on me own in the middle of the pitch. i think they thought i was nuts. he was actually a boxer, he was a settled guy who married a traveller. they drove off. needless to say i thanked all the saints in heaven. but yeah, i often thought if i had a few lads with me the fight wud hav gone ahead and id a been picking my teeth up of the ground. i almost bumped into him a week later as i was collecting his neighbour. he stayed in his car with his missus til i left. try show no fear, its difficult but it works. as for self defence - my thing is i know how to clench my fist - i do press ups on my knuckles and i know that if i have to ever strike someone my intent is for my knuckles to make contact. im no heman but my knuckles are rock hard and it gives me a sense of having a chance.
