    Either move back or get in close imo. Mid-range is a dangerous place to be. Cover the head as well, but don't take your eyes of them. As to what to do to neutralise the threat depends on the opponent and the situation. A kick to the knee is always a winner if you're not sure what to do.

    I would politely ask them to stop

    Not really. I have no idea what I would do, because I don't know the situation. No two fights are identical, and you can have all the plans in the world but half the time when it comes down to it the plan goes out of the window

    Throw a low kick and move in with punches. Anyway, it's easier said than done, and usually in these situations you don't really get the time to think of what you're gonna do, so I guess the natural reaction would be too move back.

    Just a few ideas....

    1 - Turn around and run away
    2 - Knee/kick him in the balls
    3 - Get in closer to take power away from him punches and look for an elbow, headbutt, etc
    4 - Charge at him and punch back, but with harder punches
    5 - Drop your weight down lower, charge in and grab both his legs, pick him up and dump him on his back
    6 - Pray that this guy doesnt have 10 friends in the pub who are also willing to do the same to you


    Not saying any of these are what I would do, I guess you never know till the time comes, but just some options

    fight back or run away are the only two viable options i can think of. the other is to get beat up which is not acceptable for me.

    if you can out punch them, ride 1 punch and throw your own combo
    if you are faster, counter
    if you are no a stronger punch nor faster, you'd take away there range, force them back and step to the sides picking them off with your skills
    if none of the above - cheat

    IMHO

    If there is room, do a round kick to his knee with your shin, "no matter how big a guy is, if you smash his knee he goes down" 'Patrick swayzee Roadhouse',
    Or if not much room, move in to close range and attack using downward or side elbow. If succsessful with these routines, hope that any witnesses are on your side to say you acted in self defense, if they are not be prepared to go to jail, because you will have done a lot of damage.

    Join a martial arts club, preferably one based around striking (i.e. boxing, muay thai, mma, etc) where you will learn some fundamental strategies for dealing with this type of scenario.

    Definately, but with respect to all martial arts, they all have there place, i woudlnt bother with karate, kung fu and tae kwondo and similar arts, but as Osagi says boxing mma thai boxing are the ones to look at, and far more realistic/practical.

    tackling someone to the floor is almost alway a bad idea in reality as your likly to get kicked in the head by one of his m8 or even a random bystander

    this happened a couiple of months ago to me, some bloke came at me with windmills quicker than a tornado, i pretty much tried to move out the way and then kicked to the knee area. slowed him down and gave me time to smack him back while his windmills slowed.

    you cant really plan for these situations though, and when you do it never goes to plan anyway!

    i always prefer running though

    cheers for the replies guys

    I was just wondering really, your typical village hardman has one two many and starts windmilling you what would you do?

    rightly or wrongly i would lead with my 'nut' then throw my punches.

    Osagi - thats the 'politically correct' suggestion. but im sure most of us know someone who was/is into boxing,thai,mma etc but got smashed to bits in a street fight.
    i certainly have, i feel some can carry there skills outside of the ring and others forget everything when a real adrenaline pump hits them.

    If your smaller, get in close and uppercut
    If your taller, get back or try to sidestep

    As already said, nobody bar the most experienced fighters can actually do this in a fight.
    My natural reaction would be to block my face and get out of the way I suppose.
