Are you serious about this statement.

How do you propose you troll for a fight on the street?

Is that really ethical and responsible?

Do you not think there are better ways to train?

You are correct in once sense. I did learn a valuable lesson 22 years ago in the first and last fight I trolled for. I got my face busted in, chipped tooth, busted nose. I learned don't troll for a fight that you ain''t willing to lose.

There are good ways to train yourself that allow for isolation and control, that minimize the amount of real damage.

I don't know you well enough to really tell if you are being serious or not....I hope not.

Read Min's post carefully, you will find that there is a deeper purpose behind what he is looking for.
