The Best Way To Win A Fight
It has been years. I remember a moment in my life when I was a fighter. I would go out of my way to fight and I would fight anyone. I remember a moment when a guy wearing a crazy looking outfit was walking near the railroad tracks in Fremont, Nebraska and some friends of mine and I decided to give the guy a hard time. The guy tried with all he had just to get away from us. He talked with calming words and tried to just move on. We should have taken that as a sign, but no. I was one of the prime instigators and before I knew what happened, all of us were reeling in pain. Some of us were catching our breath, holding our stomachs and others rubbing knots on their heads. This guy had just kicked our butts and we had no idea how.
I had lessons and lessons. I was hard-headed and had to learn the difficult way in many ways.
I still think it was this guy who did it to us.
I lived in Fremont, Nebraska. Robert Bussey who is just a couple years older than me is also from Fremont.
Robert studied with some of the best martial artists in the world. He ran a dojo in Fremont that was known as R.B.W.I. or Robert Bussey's Warrior International. Yep, I just had to pick a fight with the greatest American Ninjitsu. Yes, Robert is a Ninja.
Some years later I was in county jail and one of the guards, James Rosenbach, who was also Robert Bussey's good friend and business partner watched me accept Jesus Christ as my personal savior. I had many good talks with James and he helped me with my walk with Christ.
I spent time studying many of the R.B.W.I. ways and videos. I learned how God has to be the central part of my life and at the same time I learned how to fight.
Before I share with you the best way to win a fight, I want to share some of the excellent quotes by Mr Bussey and another two videos.
Robert Bussey's Book
“The trail leading to technical expansion and diversity is to always be
alert for new and varied principals.”
“Avoid trouble by interacting with others in a genuine way. Don’t fake sincerity but find within yourself a connection with others through an attentive, caring nature.”
“What is defense? It is a countermeasure to aggression, an act of protection from danger.”
“To master a thing, you must remain teachable. In time, you will make it your own.”
“What drives my physical techniques is certain underlying ‘principals’ and therefore, my movements are constantly in a state of change.”
“The impact of violence is happening at this very moment…it can be immediate,
and seems always to be lurking.”
“Once you’ve resolved to fight, summon every tool in your arsenal, place them in
reserve and be prepared to trigger them.”
“Actual conflict is different from the formalized scenarios on display in the dojo and at tournaments.”
"Neutralize hostile arguments. Resist the power struggle, take pause, then commit yourself to redirecting their emotional energy.”
"Fight to apply yourself unswervingly to devouring your enemy with all of
your senses working together on your behalf."
I am proud to say that I grew and lived in the same town as both Robert and James. I learned much from them and due to the fact that both recognize that it is all from God through Jesus, it is wonderful.
Here are a couple more videos by Master Bussey and I will then tell you the best way to win a fight. Between the videos is a link to Robert's web site.
The very best way to win any fight is to just walk away from it.
Fighting never does anyone any good; it really solves nothing and the bigger and badder person is the one who can just walk away.
Jesus taught us that very principal and both Robert and James highly agree with it.
It is wise to be prepared and to be able to defend yourself, but fighting for the fact of fighting really makes no sense. God didn't make us to harm each other.
Robert and James, thank you for your dedication to teaching others these principals. I know that you James probably always wondered if my hard-head would ever "get it". Well, it sank in finally.
I wish you both many blessings from God. Thanks brothers!!!
Have you ever studied any forms of martial arts
I highly recommend any R.B.W.I. course instruction if you have them near you. I know that there are locations all over.
You can learn much more from these guys; just Google them and be sure and check out Robert's web site I posted above.
God be with you all. Stay strong in both will, desire and your walk with Jesus!
