Does anyone have advice on how to fight a 6'5, 250lb jealous ex-fiance?

My girlfriend's ex-fiance is back in the picture after about 5 months. I saw him at a bar recently and started throwing bottles of beer, screaming obsenities, and making threats toward me. I've never been in a physical fight, so I'd like to know if any interferencers would offer good advice on self-defense, etc.

I'm about 6'2 and weigh around 220, so it's not as mismatched as you may think. However, I'm one of those 'gentle-giants', who wouldn't harm a fly. Now, I've learned that this Bruno type character is going to create a hostile environment the next time we cross paths.

I'll keep you posted, but I need some advice ASAP!

Oh, yeah...and this isn't like a version of "Fight Club", so don't take it lightly

Ciao

Baseball bat?.....Baseball bat?.....HOLY SHIT, that might just work!!!!!!! LOL

You know, I'd like to be able to take him down all by myself. I don't want to kill the guy, but I do want to show him I mean business.

*A group of friends, will only bring HIS friends into the fight, right? Is that a good idea? Will that cause us to resort to gangs for our eternity in this small, Oklahoma town?

*A baseball bat would be very effective, but then he might come after ME with a bat, and then what do I do? I don't want to give him any reason to bring this to the NEXT LEVEL. Wouldn't hand-to-hand be the most admirable thing to do?

Forget the baseball bat or "a couple of friends." Just take DiamondBruno9 with you; he is a "Bruno" type as well, and, after all, "the big guy IS made of STEEL" as Bono told us.

Ideally, "walk away" is the best choice, but I have dealt with too many thugs in life who take this as a challenge to pursue you. And you cannot spend all of your time wondering if he is around the corner and leaving every bar/restaurant where he shows up. As Sting says:

"Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can;
A gentleman will walk but never run."

Personally, I think such trashy thugs should spend the rest of their lives in jail, where they can't harm and harass people.

Best of luck, and DON'T let him break you and your girlfriend up.

Is it not possible to simply avoid him?
Not to sound like a mother, but fighting him is not going to solve anything. It might make you feel a short lived sense of satisfaction, but it could create even more trouble down the road.
He sounds like a fighter, so one fight probably won't be enough for him. The next thing you know you are faced with 5 200lb guys and have a kife in your side.
Sorry to be gross, but that is reality these days...
Don't fight.

Purchase a suit of plate mail. I think they sell for 750 gold pieces at Garth's Olde Equipment Shoppe.

There is nothing wrong with a little frontier justice. Find out where he lives and show up at 6AM right as he is getting ready to leave for work. He won't be expecting you and he won't know what hit him.

And the three of you could talk it out?

If youre going to tote a baseball bat around in your car or something, be sure to have a ball, a glove, and maybe some spikes, because if you get pulled over and a cop finds just a baseball bat in your car you could be in for some serious shit.
