It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.

From as early as our ancestral caveman days, humanity has hurt and killed each other for gain, pleasure or out of necessity. Fighting, defensive or offensive is our oldest skill, not much different than any other animal.

Animals aren’t restrained by arbitrary rules or hindered by the concept of right and wrong. They fight dirty through the instinctive nature to survive at all cost.

Even as civilized humans, we should defend ourselves equally unrestrained, brutally but methodically if our life was dependent on it. As the most sentient species, it’s logical and appropriate that our instinct for survival is just as strong as any lesser organism.

The Art of Dirty Fighting /// VINJABOND

Most of those combat tactics are for good reason, prohibited in legitimate sport fighting as well as friendly sparring – dirty fighting has no place in such venues.

If you’re about to be assaulted and escape is not an option, those dirty (but situationally justified) fighting tactics should be executed with extreme prejudice.

There’s a difference between “fighting to win” and “fighting to kill”, or in this case “fighting to survive”. The concept of “winning” makes it seem like a game or a match, and those things have rules and limitations.

This “beast”, while retaining a conscious and level head should embrace the animal within and fight as if your life depended on it, because it does.

I like a man who grins when he fights.
