    Re: Never been punched

    I'm just mind blown by how many people have never been punched or thrown punches. Were you only children/just had sisters?

    If I had a dollar for every time my brother and I drew blood fighting with each other, I could probably buy another set of season tickets.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Yea, that whole thing is weird to me as well. My brother and I were insane as kids against each other. Our backyard was basically Highlander for who would carry on the family name.

    Re: Never been punched

    I grew up with brothers but my parents had one rule: nothing to the face. If one of us ended up with a bloody nose or black eye we would be in **** loads of trouble. Everything else was pretty much fair game. Other than that no punches taken or thrown outside of organized competition.

    Re: Never been punched

    This is going to be fun to answer. I am 65 years old and can not say how many fights I have been. I think it was the way I was brought up breaking horses and the service in Vietnam. Still today I would rather fight than walk away. I have been beat up and have beat up people. Just used to think it was fun. The Iowa game this year got into an argument with a 30 year old. Ended up saying he would kick my *** but the hits I got in he would remember. Ended up just took one punch and he was out. He was liquored up some. Wife is still mad and she knows it's just me.

Big right hook to the face. I remember the shocked look on his face as I had never really fought back before. It got broken up immediately with only the one punch thrown.

    Had to go to the office and talk to the vice principal. I explained the whole situation. Kid had messed with me for years and I finally got sick of it. The vice principal shook my hand and I didn't get in trouble at all.

    The bully never said another word to me and works at his dads video store now.
    That sounds like it would be a great movie plot...

    Re: Never been punched

    This is a good thread.....normally i would say a lot of people i know never get into real fist throwing altercations so its not that rare. I have been punched so many times i cant count but mma as a sport its pretty normal obviously. Outside of that only 2-3 times

    Re: Never been punched

    When I was just a young sack of crap, my brother stuffed me in a toy box, and sat on the lid. Still hate closets to this day.

    Behind our house was new construction, and we would rummage through the foundations when the workers left. One particularly hot day, my brother entered the kybo, and without hesitation i jammed the door closed with some sticks and nails. Now, if you have ever been to a worksite kybo, you fully understand the unpleasantries. I had the son of a ***** bolted in that spot for 20 minutes before he cut loose.

    He destroyed me once he caught me. And it was worth it.

    Been in scrums in college, but never felt anything like that beat down. Still worth it.

    Re: Never been punched

    One time I was playing pickup b-ball at the Lied Center. On my team there four scrawny white guys (my friends and myself) and one small but muscular black guy (mini-Stinson, however a stranger to me).

    We were playing against at team of Asians. I got hit in the nuts. And the black guy was about to take on the whole other team for my sake. They looked scared. We finished the game though without incident.

    I never came real close to getting into a fight at ISU but about had to when I went to a house party at the Drake Relays.

    Re: Never been punched

    LOL at the number of people who have been "sucker" punched compared to the people who have "sucker" punched anybody. Lots of drunks or small man syndrome types think they get "sucker" punched. Let's be real...a lot of us can turn into punch-worthy people when we've had a few beers.

    EDIT: Also, it doesn't really help your cause when you just say you were sucker punched and can't tell the backstory.
