Me Hi guys, I thought I would re-introduce myself, as I havent been active lately. My name is Steven. I live in Michigan. I am 16. I am 6'7 and about 205 lbs. I'm in decent shape and have wrestled (amateur/olympic style) for 9 years. I also have a small amount of training in Jui Jitsu and Boxing. The Situation I have a pretty serious girlfriend. I care about her alot. There is this kid who she sort of dated over 2 years ago, we'll call him Asshat. I have never met him. He is 15, ~ 6'0, and about 275 lbs per my estimate from seeing him a couple of times. He looks really out of shape. There is another kid in one of my classes. We can call him Shortdick. Shortdick is friends with Asshat. In the last few days Shortdick has been giving me **** during class. HE is telling everyone that this Asshat, whom I have never met, is saying horribly vulgar things about my girlfriend, who she hasn't had contact with in months. The things he are saying are ruthless and I'm not gonna let someone disrespect someone I love like that. I wanna know what strategy you guys think I should approach this with. Someone told me that they pass him in the hall at the same place and time everyday. I don't want to get suspended or in serious trouble, but I am ready to deal with any consequences. What I'm thinking now is I'm gonna wait for the kid and blindside him into the wall. I'm not gonna swing until he does. I plan on just holding him there and making my point that he won't be saying stuff like that any longer. If all goes as planned it will end there. I he continues to spread rumors, I will find him and really hurt him. If he swings initially, I'm ready to fight. It's never good to have a plan, but I have some options I'm thinking about. If he swings wildly at my head, which I'm sure e will do, ad most people in our town are inexperienced fighters, I will hit a double leg on him and either start kicking or mount and start swinging. If it resorts to stand up fighting, I will try and hit him with a solid elbow to the nose. Then try and end it. What do you guys think? Any Advice? (Do you think I have a decent reason for fighting?
