    Fist fights went out when I left high school.

    Now? I am a father, a husband, my family depends on me, my life is more valuable to me than some punk who wants to get physical.

    If someone feels the need to physically attack me, its not a game anymore, we aren't kids. I respect people who deserve respect, will avoid a confrontation if possible and dont go seeking trouble.

    If someone decides to physically attack me despite my attempts to avoid it, I will stop them as quickly, and as safely as possible.

    If I feel that their intent is to seriosly harm or kill me, then I will use deadly force to stop them.
    I will do whatever I legally can to turn the odds in my favor.
    I believe as an adult there are no "fair fights" there are only the attacker, and the victim.

    If someone tries to make me a victim, and avoidance does not work, my preffered deffense is to attack.

    THATS what happend to old fashined fist fights.

    Well I was wrong about the motive. Good luck on finding that one. These things can go back more than 50 years.
