when you say play fighting I envision a lot of slapping and giggling. Are we talking sparring or rolling, two buddies just messing around, or what’s the situation? I’m trying to gauge a level of intensity here. But like others have said, if it is actually a fear of an inability to defend yourself in certain situations that was brought on by this instance then you can use it, use that to motivate you to get better, to train harder. But if it’s just an ego bruise that is motivating you to come back and whoop this guy later then I think you’re missing the point of most martial arts. But if the martial arts aren’t what interests you, and you’re strictly looking for self defense, then maybe Krav Maga would be more up your alley.
