In Martial Arts the highest goal is to be able to win a fight without fighting. By using the opponents psychological weaknesses we can overcome him without having to draw the sword.

Did you get ever into a fight/argument and came out the winner without actually having to fight?

Sounds like quite some book you've got there.Of course the pen is mightier than the sword

Agreed!

I have rarely won the physical fight and have the scars to prove it. But, spoken and written words are definitely a foe most are willing to take on, yet are rarely prepared to defeat. Rather harkens to the "sticks and stones" philosophy.

LOL! Oh, a PHYSICAL fight...I have never won one of those...but I have inflicted a fair amount of damage before I gave up!;)

when i was in high school, being the obnoxious little girl i was. i started an arguement with another girl, who was burlier and bigger then i, who then wanted to fight me. i dont know what the arguement was about. but i continued to talk trash, even though i was sure to get a beat down. and then she backed down, thank goodness. i think i appeared confident...that is my theory. or maybe she thought i knew martial arts.

I've won arguments without having to fight (ie: calm, rational tone of voice that makes the other person get angrier and even more irrational) but I've never been involved in a physical fight. I've had to break up a few, since in high school a good friend of mine was a trash-talker and started things. Ahhhh, the memories, lol.

i've won fights without fighting by being annoying, starting off in a very calm low voice with - ''by law as i hold a martial art license i have to tell you that i have one and that i have trained for over twelve years, i think that its silly i have to tell you but you're supposed to know that i'm trained to hit / beat you up, but don't worry its not for your safety that i tell you but to actually cover my own back in case of you trying to put any claims in against me, by the way it was nice knowing you while you were alive''.... it normally works, they rarely pick a fight after that...

If you can come out with something that stumps the other person or makes absolutely no sense (but sounds like it does)...that usually takes the wind out of their sails for a minute while they try to digest it....during which time you turn on your heel and flee the scene. :)

Yo E ... You wouldn't be referring to a red herring, would you?
