Last one I saw in the street was about a year ago.

I was driving past a local pub and a family "do" seemed to have resulted in an argument which spilled out into the street. One guy cracked the other with a single punch to the sweet spot which caused an instant knockout and a nasty impact with the street.

I pulled over to go and see what was happening with the unconscious guy while the bloke who had hit him looked completely and utterly devestated.

Everyone was find and dandy by the time the ambulance and police arrived but I do remember being shocked by the speed and ferocity. Even though I had seen quite a few KO's beforehand and certainly seen a few since.

ive caused and seen a few knockouts . its mainly the aftermath for me that used to disturb whether the guy would come round,also whether i would be trouble with the law.

as for being knocked out only happened once in a bare knuckle fighting bout in my teens both ended up hospital overnight ,but have been friends ever since and laugh about it how stupid it was.

Haven't seen any, to be honest, most street fights I have seen have been poor, with both fighters exchanging blows for a good couple of minutes!!!!!
Have caused a few though, and I always get the shakes really bad afterwards, I also get a really intense feeling of quilt which can last for days!!!!!

I've seen a few and to be honest, they don't bother me that much.

I can assure you that I don't like them but whenever I witness or am involved in something, things kind of go weird like I'm having an out of body experience and I'm watching a movie about myself. Does that make ANY sense?

Makes sense to me, and I've experienced sometimes. For me it is a very relaxing experience, and it feels like you just know you will not be beaten. To date the feelings were spot on.

But it doesn't happen every time, not at all. And I have no idea why sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. Whatever it is I wish I could call on it at will. Or maybe sell it - cheers

Re knockouts? I don't mind seeing them. It's the sight of what people set about doing to the helpless victim that makes me angry and sick to my stomach.

I've caused quite a few but none of them with a punch to be honest because i always went to the ground from my wrestling background or when standing up use anything that comes to hand.
But the first i saw was from a friend of mine who punches like popey,
i was in shock and couldn't sleep all night seeing the other guy's picture in my head as he laid unconcious in a star shape, i thought he was dead.

If I'm honest,causing someone to go to sleep,when it really is necessary at the time makes me feel exhilarated and powerful-in control.
It can completely change a situation,when suddenly the main aggressor is sparked out,and very often it will calm everyone down like 'that'.
As long as it's justified,my only immediate worry is getting nicked!
On the other hand,I have 'lost it' in the past(when I was younger) and kicked people into a bit of a mess(and gone too far for the situation),and these times have sickened and saddened me.
Seeing someone bullying people,looking for a fight all night etc.,then themselves get sparked or just battered(and often running away!),is very amusing and can leave me in stitches(laughing-not literally!).
How about yourself,John?

Hi Kemlyn, yeh pretty much sums it up. before i went on the doors i did'nt think twice about stamping someones head into the floor it was a me or them situation. I was filled with anger and fears and that resulted in a rage that drove me to extreme violence.

when i changed my outlook on life through my experiences, i did'nt want to harm anyone. generally I had no bad intent no desire to harm. Truth was if i did'nt do it first it would have been done to me and i was'nt prepared to let that happen. It was my duty to protect myself not for my sake but for my family it was also my duty to protect the persons i had to fight knocking them out and finishing it quickly was the best for both me and them.

And like you say if you only fight when its absolutly 100% nessescary when its in your face and so close you can taste fear then you are within your rights to exact your defence.

After all the years and experiences i've been involved in i'm still the same person only now i have the knowledge to enable me to control myself and the fire within.

Fear maybe the friend of exceptional people but it is also the driver of anger and rage. That anger and rage needs to be channelled into something worthwhile in our lives it needs constant nurturing. change takes time.

There is something beatiful about having control of the self it makes you feel real good when you say NO to something as destructive as stamping on someones head after they have been render unconsciouse or robbing, stealing, lying, cheating, or any one of the bad deeds men are capable of.

Only fight when you have to, but be first or you may never wake up!!
and when you achieve the knockout show some compassion.

take care
John

Have you seen one in the street?

Only a handful. Most of the brutal violence ended with someone bloody, semi-concious and incoherrant.

if so how did it affect you mentally? were you disturbed? How did you react? Question

To be honest I was just glad it wasn't me at the time.

Afterwards though, that depends on why it happened. Some deserved it while others didn't.
