Well, my sensei always used to tell us that in a real fight, you wouldn't have time to think, only to react. The whole idea behind putting in endless hours of punching, kicking, and blocking was to train your body to react without thought, to let the attacks and defenses come out on their own without you having to think about it.
Also, it appears that we'd really be the wrong group of nerds to f*ck with.
Never judge how dangerous a person is by how he looks; learned that one real early in my training. There is this little old lady, she looks like she's 90, not even 5 foot tall. She moves like fucking lightning though, and sparring with her used to leave me with bruises from blocking her strikes. I pity anyone who tries to snag her purse.
