Q: Is it true that brute force is the only thing that matters in a fight?
-No, skill matters too.
Q: I hear all the time that skill,technique,speed is not enough to beat size,strength,raw power,and timing.
-Depends on the skill, technique, and the speed, and how much size, strength, and raw power difference we are talking about. An ant would probably never beat an elephant no matter how skilled it is. But if a person isn't frail and the other guy isn't unreasonably strong(like an olympian or something), then good amount of skill should be able to overcome the difference no problem.
Q: But my thing is if that's the case how do you build brute strength and raw power if you weren't born with it?
-They have this thing called gym. People go in to lift heavy things and do other kind of activities that promote muscle growth. It allows people to get stronger, faster, and it develops their coordination. Some people might even take a more novel approach of training martial art where they will practice fighting to help them develop skill and get fit at the same time.
Q: People say punches are made not born I presume kicks are also included in this theory as well.
-So I heard, but I'm not a big believer in that.
Q: But if that's the case then how can you build your punching and kicking power if you weren't born with it?
-Train and develop skill and fitness necessary to gain power.
Q: How can you hurt someone or even protect yourself and family if you don't have those physical attributes like a strong person?
-Without proper training and strength, I guess you would rely on external objects. Lock your doors and call for help, and if you have weapons then arm yourself so that if the attacker breaches the door then you can fight back.
Q: What's the point of training or learning to fight if it's all useless and dosent improve anything about you?
-But it does improve you.
Q: How? Just how are you going to beat these type of people?
-Train. Get better and stronger.
Q: Please don't say avoid or run away because some fights you just can't avoid and running away makes you look like a coward
-I envy that you live in such a tight knit community that will remember you on sight let alone remember that you ran away. As for me, if I suddenly ran away from a fight in the middle of the street, nobody on that street would even know who I am let alone remember that I ran away a hour later.
Q: plus I'm sure if your family was endangered your not just going to run away your going to try and fight and protect them.
-Yup, which is why I train.
Q: Also don't say fight dirty I'm pretty sure they can fight you dirty back.
-Oh, I'm expecting them to fight dirty in the first place. It's stupid to think that because I'm going to fight fair that they'll do the same. These are the guys that came to harm me and my family for no good reason. Fairly sure 'fair fight' isn't something they're looking for.
Q: Also if they are tough fighting dirty is not going to work or hurt them and most likely people like this are tough.
-Once again that's why I train.
Q: Last but not least it's a lack of man hood for males.
-Meh, I'm not into stupid male ego trips. I do what I need to do to keep me and my loved ones safe from jacks that's looking to harm us.
