Schoolyard Fights

Perhaps I was just lucky, or just a very likable kid, but I never got into any sort of physical altercations in my time at school. The closest that I ever came was in third or fourth grade where I got in a shoving match with Jon Greene on the playground. I think he probably could have taken me. At that age with my lack of experience, I think a toddler could have taken me.

And in middle school there was one bully who did give me a hard time, but it tended to be more in the form of mind games. It was odd, too, because I had no idea who he was, never had any run-ins with him previously… he was just two years older and I turned out to be the object of his bullying.

I think that because of my lack of experience, if I were to get into a fight now, I’d have to play the “crazy, loony freak” card and hope I scared the guy away.

I've only been in one fight, ever: in sixth grade, I finally had it with constant taunts from one kid. One day after school, after he flung my glasses off my face, I socked him one. We fell to the ground in a big fight.

The next day he apologized, and we actually became mild friends afterwards. The moral of the story is, of course, that beating people up will solve every problem, ever.

In 3rd grade, I had my collarbone broken in a fight. In 6th grade I nailed a kid right in the 'nads and put him down and out. Amazingly, we ended up friends.

When I was a kid, there was a fight almost every day after school. Today, I guess they shoot each other.

I was in second grade and being chased by some boy and he grabbed my shirt, and a couple buttons came off. I was MORTIFIED. It was one of my favorite shirts, a hot pink short sleeve one. I think it happened because there was this "social hierarchy" of where we played on the monkey bars and he wanted my place on them that day.

I was pushed around for several years before high school. Then in the 10th grade a bunch of girls pushed me in the locker and I had had enough. I didn't back down and the fight was on. I gave it all I had and I threw her out a window and she landed in some bushes. That was the only fight I had been in and the only one. I guess sometimes you have to fight to prove yourself. NO ONE bothered me after that. I did't even get suspended. I had been lifting weights before that and I didn't know my own strength. The girls that tried to beat me up didn't know I was that strong by then. I showed them. We became friends after that. Fighting is not always the answer. It takes more curage to walk away, but sometimes you have to.

My first real bad ass fight happened when I was in the sixth grade I was a quiet kid who was not real arrogant or cocky and I did not talk alot. It was the first day of school and I was the new kid living in a new town trying to meet new friends it was lunch time and I was talking with this real pretty girl while standing in line at the vending machine I was about to put money in the coke machine when some dude cut in front of me that did not bother me much because I was talking with this girl and I really did not care if he cutted infront of me or not because I was focused on getting a phone number. Then the dude got his coke tapped me on the head with it and told me to move bitch that just really set me off into a rage and I unloaded with a straight right that senthis head flying back into the coke machine so hard the fiberglass broke and the machine busted and I landed the straight punch right on the nose his nose began bleeding prefusely and his eyes started watering he then got up and tried to grab me and I did not want to wrestle this guy I wanted to beat his ass with my fist I pushed away from him creating enough space to land 3 or 4 light jabs to the left side of his face he then threw a wild haymaker that missed big time and sent him off balance I had both of my feet planted and hips positioned right so that after he missed his punch I landed a THUNDEROUS right hook that knocked his ass out and I found out later broke his jaw and appararently those jabs were not so light because I broke his orbital bone around his eye socket.
After I knocked him out I mounted and pounded till I was restrained by the football coach. Turns out nobody liked this kid because he was an ass hole towards everyone and also turns out he was in the eighth grader. That to this day is my fondest memory of middle school because who would of thought the nice looking sweet kid that was a christian and sang in choir did musicals and was always smiling and friendly would turn out to be such a bad ass after that fight I took up amateur boxing and won three major tournaments I am now 18 years old and I plan on joining the Army.

I guess with all the fighting, clean language and spelling get knocked out before the fighters do. Sad!

But the only real fight I was in was in 9th grade. This kid that lived up the road, Marc, got mad at me because he thought I was talking trash on the basketball court. What he didn't know was that it was his own teammate. Anyway, after the game was over I had started to walk home. I could hear Marc screaming at me to wait so he could kick my butt. Tempting, I know, but I just wasn't in the mood for a butt whipping that day. He was about a foot taller and out weighed me by almost 100lbs. Scared? I'd say so! As he got close to me, while riding his sister's pink 10 speed, my "buddies" said that if he started anything with anyone, we'd all get him. Well I'm not a fan of an unfair fight, but man alive, the guy was big. He started screaming and cussing as he got of the bike and pushed me once. I told him it would be stupid for me to fight him and started to back up. He pushed me again and I made sure he knew it was his teammate that was talking junk. He pushed me a third time and I turned to walk home. He smacked in the back of the head, I turned around to say something and he pushed me again. With out even knowing I was doing it, I punched him square in the jaw. I realized I had done so only when he was stumbling back and my arm returned to my side. OH CRAP, I thought. He came charging, swung, thankfully missing and stepped back. Meanwhile, my buddies were no where near. They were doing the usual 25 foot screaming for ME to hit him. NO ONE came to help little me. Luckily, I landed one more punch and as he stumbled back he tripped over a stick in the road and fell. That was enough for me. I wanted no more of this. I turned around, walked home and called it a day. 4 days later was the last day of school before Christmas vacation. As he got on the bus that day, he shook my hand, apologized and we never brought it up again. Phew! I thought for sure he was going to eat me or something. He stopped bullying pretty much everyone after that. Prior, he was the last person you wanted to get on the bus or come to the playground. After, well you still didn't want him there as much, but at least he calmed down some.

Not the best story but it's the only one I have.

There was a big sophomore kid when I was a freshman in high school who picked on me. I tried to avoid him, but that didn't work. Then, I wished he was dead--but that didn't work either. So then, after his latest attempt, I calmly asked him, "What's your problem? Why do you have to be such a bitch?"

I guess he wasn't ready for that and he stopped. He tried to be friends with me later, but I had no respect for his little bitchy ways for being such a big kid, especially because I saw him try to pick on other kids just as he had tried to pick on me.

Five years ago he was killed in his BMW when it overturned on its roof and slid into a fire hydrant, which went right through the driver's side window and into his head. He had gotten into a fight with his girlfriend or something and was speeding down a five-lane commercial highway when he lost control of the automobile.

My prayers were answered twenty years late.

Today I fought this other kid in my class, and I was trying to punch him but I missed like 90% of the time. Anyway, even though I used a cheap shot while he was sitting down and he did a good job of defending himself, everybody thinks that I won. He even got up after the incident and he wasn't even hurt! Now I'm scared that he's going to fight me again and beat the shit out of me.

help!

Had a 13 year old 5' 3" 95 pound kid starte a fight with me at the formal dance last night. he said he saw me get beaten up and took me down and hit me about 10 times in the face. I countered with a few punches into his ribs finally I got control of him about 5 minutes later , hit him in the gut and the ribs and got on top of him and hit him 10 times in the jaw and knocked him out! It was so cool to see his dressed up body lying on the ground knocked out. I finally won my first fight. then the I ran into the other kid and he beat me up again!

I only got into one REAL fight. But first some adviced. Always bring two friends just incase the other idiot decides to bring some. Now the fight.

I was in the fifth grade. My best friend Dylan and I were walking to talk at the jungle gym. (bout girls, OF COURSE!) Well one of my other best friends
was p'd off at him. I saw him running up to dylan with his fists up. I turned around and punched him right in the face. So Dylan and I were walking away and he ran up and grabbed my neck. I couldn't breath, and he was at a spot I couldnt get him off. dylan punched him in the side and punched him in the side of the head. After a couple more of his crappy attacks I had it. Dylan and I were almost at the jungle gym, when the my other friend ran up to me and tried to punch me. I dodged it and grabbed his forearm and his armpit. and flipped him over my shoulders right in to the jungle )gym. : )

I've been in 2 fights, once when i was in 5th grade with a girl from my class during recess, but all we did was pull hair and slap. it was a gay, very girly catfight. the 2nd one happened after school in 9th grade and that one was an all out fist fight over my ex. the biatch was psychotic crazy and she wanted to fight me from the day we met. it was pretty rough fight, and long too. hair was lost, blood was spilled. enough said.
