Do anybody else notice this? Or is it just me

OK this is going to sound weird but ever since i been trainning in kickboxing, i notice whenever i walk by someone, and they are walking by me, i notice opennings for a strike like a jab or a left hook lol. I notice the distance, and what their own attack and defense maybe in my peripheral vision. I can see the body langauge of a fighter or if they're an athlete, I can sense if someone's about to approach you into your comfort zone (squaring off) i can feel the danger and my body naturally gets out of the way or goes into rhymnn ready for self defense. People testing each other's defensive body langauge. Like when i walk by someone who's carrying his backpback on his right shoulder, and his other hand is out. I notice in my peripheral it looks like a fighting gaurd. I always get these people, because they can tell you can fight, they want to walk by you (i guess to show everyone else around that they arnt scared) coming to test you. People just treat fighters like we are like weirdo's, i dont if if its fear or what. I notice that sounds of the enviroment are like rhymntic with attack and defense. I know this probally the weirdest threat, sorry if this may be in the wrong section.


I also notice when im about to spar, or watching fights on tv, like..before you begin a fight you look at your opponent and you feel him out with your hands. You know what attack and defense to use before it starts.

i always get people like you are describing(trying to act tougher towards me than others). And yes it is natural to subconsciously size people up as training becomes part of your life. Thats just your killer instinct making its way out

P.S. try having a mohawk, scruffy beard and earrings. And add in a few tattoos. Youll get all the looneys in your face esp at night clubs etc

Yes 24/7

In fact upon entering a room I notice all guys that could pose a risk to me in a fight and how I would go about fighting them and whether I could "take" them or not.

Isnt it just some animal instinct in us? I mean even before I did martial sports, everytime I see a guy coming towards me I think if i can take him out or not.

im constantly sizing everyone up however i dont get too many people coming to act tough towards me as i am a 145/155 fighter at 5'5-5'6 in height...not to say i cant handle my own with most anyone around here (which admittingly i do a bit too much, living in the country with all the drunk rednecks).

I know a little bit of what you mean, but the main things I notice are that if anyone knows you train in martial arts they'll always be the guys who feel they have something to prove, who'll try and give you the I can knock you out routine, and occassionly the ones that actually try to do it( I love these people,lol), another thing that I sometimes find myself doing especially after training a lot of bjj is opening or holding objects with my thumb on the outside, as opposed to the full grip, strange I know,lol.

Another thing since trainning, when i walk my hands feel loose, fluid, and sometimes stop moving and when that happens it lets me know there may be danger. I also been having to constantly look around my surroundings and it seems hard to walk around when i dont lol. I guess i have really heightended sence of awareness. Also when i walk next to a road and car approaches my hand likes to do a strike towards them or my feet step away, like i just did a counterattack because it seemed like they attack'd me from the side lol. Also when i walk in the mall where people are ususally closer to each other, i can feel the energy, and once i get s my hands in rhytmn noone messes with me, with the expection of those people who want to test you. Also, like in the mall, I was about to reach the exit of the mall, i had to do a sharp turn and then this lady wanted to show who was boss and so she approach me like coming from a 45 angle distance and like, what seemed like she did a jab, I step out and did the samething and I knew i humbled her because I felt comfortable after that and didnt loose balance. Of course I was looking at my enviroment the whole time not her. Anybody get similar situations in mall? can you like feel people's energy?
