Anger is a dangers emotion, it can make the smartest people do the dumbest things. In a fight however, anger is ten time more dangerous.
No person should ever make any sort of decision if he’s angry, even more so when fighting. In a fight, anger can cloud the judgment, ruin the awareness, and destroy common sense. All the trades that are crucial for winning a fight, and the lack of them can get a person hurt or worse.
In a fight, you need to be aggressive, not angry. There’s a world of difference. Any idiot can go crazy from anger, that by the way is considered to be temporary insanity. Sure, it makes anyone dangerous, to himself and others. But not nearly as dangerous as a professorial, who can be 100% aggressive, and still stay in control of himself at all times. No emotions, purely the business of fighting.
What you need in a fight is called control aggression. If you’re able to do that, then you’ll become a dangerous person when need be.
Through proper training, aggression is a tool you could learn how to control, and switch on and off when needed. Without losing common sense and sanity.
