The vast majority of people practising martial arts or any type of
combative sports and defense systems and especially combat movie fans
think that they have to look in their opponents eyes to predict his
strike intentions.
Real life street fight experience has but come with something totally
different.
There is no way you can predict what an assailant has in his mind
unless he begins to act or unless he gives his intentions straight
away (Like threatening someone with knife and yelling "I'm going to
kill you!").
What a fighter should do when in a fight, is to watch attackers hands.
Are they in his pockets? Is he grabbing something? Is there a gun or
anything like that? Is he attacking already and if yes, does he hold a
weapon to attack with?
Street fighters have to look for weapons in real street fight. If
attacker is having hands in his pockets, there is a big chance he is
going to pull out something to fight with. And they better pray that
it is not an arm gun.
There are no rules on a street so don't expect any judge to disqualify
that attacker for using his weapon. Sorry for that but people fight
almost always on their own in a street fight.
Fighters should always predict that the attacker has a weapon hidden
somewhere.
There is also another factor, fighters - movement reading. If read
properly, one can tell what kind of strike is attacker going to
perform and even the direction of it. But that requires some fight
experience or aimed combat training.
Some say that when you look really properly in attackers eyes, you can
see their crystalline lenses resize before performing an action...
That is one big peace of crap! How can anyone see such a little thing
changing it's size during combat when your opponent is at least on
meter far and he is moving? I can't imagine someone to be able to see
that.
Street fighters should fight according to proven experience and not
according to some movie. Like I say "Myths are going to kill you in a
street fight. Facts are going to save your life!"
and also.. "Knowledge is a weapon, Fighters!"
