Quickest Ways To Win A Fight:
1. Run away.
2. If a person were attacking you and you had to defend yourself, yell to someone behind the person, then when they look, defend yourself.
3. Wait ’til they throw the obvious overhand John Wayne punch then move in and take it to the ground.
4. Land the first shot. Normally, this always directs the outcome.
5. The chin, but kids, don’t fight, it’s weak. Be prepared to defend yourself. David beat Goliath down for bringing it against Yahweh!
