I had black belt/instructor ranks in Tae Kwon Do and Hapkido, which I would rate very low on the "real fighting" scale, and extensive training in a wide range of other systems including kickboxing and shootwrestling. I also worked as a professional self defense instructor specialising in full-force self defense, using padded body armor and realistic assault scenario training. One of the first myths that experience knocked out of me was that an "untrained" opponent is automatically easy meat; it's a dangerous assumption to make.
