...test their mettle and get hand to hand fighting experience in an uncontrolled enviroment where they have no assurance they'll come out of it safely?
A friend told me this, but im not sure wether I believe it
See what you mean, but wouldnt the barfight be the perfect opportunity to test their mettle in a potentially chaotic anything goes situation....they wouldnt necesarily use their most dangerous moves, and they could just pick on the local hard cases, but wait untill their opponent attacked them first, by being cheeky to them and winding them up so the person attacks them first
Like a field test, so to speak
Plus, maybe it would be difficult to identify the fighter as SAS, as not many ppl would know they were military because they keep their identity top secret, and just maybe the squadron RSM is in on it themselves, and encourages his charges to do as such, meaning their asses would be covered by the ppl at the top who are influential enough to get their guys off the hook

I was in the United States Marine Corps and studied martial arts on the military bases I was stationed at. I had heard of guys doing this and I became one of them.
When I started getting good at martial arts, the subject came up about, "I wonder how this would work in a real fight?" Someone told me that two specific guys regularly went out and "jumped" guys so that they could practice their techniques. Those two guys eventually beat someone too bad and they got thrown in the brig and eventually out of the Marines on a bad conduct discharge.
Of course, in the services there is no shortage of drunk guys to pick fights with and this was the course I followed. Eventually though it occurs to you that fighting fellow Marines has its limits in that you don't want to badly mess up one of your own. Biker bars became my favorite target. If you walk in a biker bar with a buzz haircut and a polo shirt buttoned to the top, within 15 minutes you will only be defending yourself.
PS. make sure you park your car across the street positioned where you can pull straight away because it is rare that you fight one biker and the incident is over.

there is several things you can do. show them how you do not like it by getting in their "personal space" by getting up in their face(after eating onion or garlic)real close and say don't touch me. I DON'T LIKE IT! of course, that may not work. you may scare them. then there is the written message excercise. write on a personal memo that you wold prefer not to be touched in the previously mentioned styles. you consider it to be improper, and would appreciate it if this behavior would cease immediately. or , if this does not happen at work, wear a t-shirt that says "KEEP YOU FU****ng hands off" that should get the message across. as a final suggestion, next time this happens, punch their lights out. then they will leave you alone (completely) have fun
I was stationed in England for 2 years, spent much of that time in pubs. I've never seen an SAS throw a punch, so my guess is no.

no one can walk into the sas, sas troopers have spent years honing their skills they spend years as regular squaddies before making the sas grade. If they assaulted a member of the public there is a good chance they would end up in the glasshouse, or even discharged for the army.

I'm not sure about pubs, but I've seen SAS pick plenty of fights in de_dust and other maps in Counter-Strike.

if five Royal Marines jumped two SAS guys, I'd take the SAS guys. What challenge do you think a bunch of drunk civilians are? This wouldn't be a test at all, and they're too mature to feel like they have something to prove by beating up a bunch of drunk idiots.

I'm not British, but no special ops person would be dumb enough to get into a bar fight.
They already train enough for what they're supposed to be doing.
From a martial arts perspective, bar fights/street fights have very little skill involved.

The Special air Squadron are not thugs they are highly trained professional soldiers who work behind enemy lines where anonimity is paramount they dont put themselves in a position where they may bring attention to themselves. If they were involved in a bar brawl there is the possibility they would be picked up by the police and end up in court. Not very anonymous is it? These men rely on stealth to survive and to them violent open action is an absolute last resort to save their own lives. They know what they can do they have no need to prove themselves to anyone.

Good one! Unfortunately they are sealing our fate as well.
Check this out.
n this fight, there is one statistic we have not heard enough about but which critics of the current system should bring up whenever they can: the medical loss ratio. This statistic describes the percentage of dollars that a health insurance company takes in from its premiums that it uses to actually pay for medical services. For example, back in the 1990s – when the health care insurance industry was quite profitable – the figure was generally in the mid-90s. In other words, about 95% of all dollars collected in premiums were used to pay for medical services. Since then, structural changes in the health insurance industry have led it to focus more on profits – as a Wall Street mentality took hold. Since the 1990s, the medical loss ratio has dropped significantly. Today it is in the mid 70s to low 80s – meaning $20 to $30 of every $100 paid in insurance premiums is not used to provide the services paid for. These profits – and the quest to increase such profits – has led to the health insurance industry becoming more like a Wall Street financial firm – with massive bonuses to its top executives and large dividends to shareholders as they skim greater profits from a rising bubble in the field in which it operates in. Our health insurance system is run by Wall Street tycoons.
