For some reason I always stand kinda middle left side of everything. Even if standing at sports games and stuff back in the day, If a pit kicks off I usually stay on the egde or 1 or 2 deep for some guard. HxC shows I get the fk out the way , I use to go hard but im far to fking old now for that shit.
when I'm in the pit I'm in the pit
usually get tired and end up at the front of the pit and that's where I adopt the pose of ninja turtle Raphael with his twin sai pokey sticks. semi-crouched feet stagged, arms just under nipple height forming an oblong rhombus to my braced fists. have the structural taughtness to headbang, just enough cardinal orientation to shunt and deflect hits from the back and shock absorb the front with my forearms.
