You know...this really brings up an intresting question. What exactly *is* Fonzie's fighting style? I'm sure he dosen't have any one spifficic trained style of fighting...but it brings up question like...What's Fonzie's primary attack in fighting? There's a few hints that he punches more then anything...the refrenced fightscenes as well as the post-rumble scene when there's a reununion of "The Falcons" and Fonzie is talking to one of the members after they got into a rumble with their old rivels...it's hinted from the scrapes on his hands that he punches more then anything else.

Still...it seems that he has a habbit of grabing people by their shirts when he's threatening them. Could be he holds on to someone while he beats on them? Could explane why someone so small is so greatly feared? Also...wouldn't it make more sence for him to *kick* a little more? Those boots would have to hurt with enough force behind them...

While its fresh in my mind... in the "Fonzie meets the Kat" ep, there is a part where the two of them trade off displaying different holds/nerve pinches on Ralph, so the Fonz definately knows some Eastern/Martial Arts influenced moves, and,
in all of the fight scenes that I can recall, the Fonz's greatest asset seems to be dodging his opponents moves - he never seems to actually get hit, and winds up tiring out his opponents.before he needs to resort to any punching or direct physical attacks of any kind.

BTW, Richie became a good fighter because of training in the Army. I wonder if we were supposed to believe that Ralph Malph did too.
I know, i was about to say that

I think Fonz's jacket was bullet proof.

Then why did he wear it so as it left the middle of his chest exposed? Was he so worried about getting shot in the shoulder it didn't occur to him to protect his heart?

Sorry, little miss logic strikes agian.

Oh yeah, and thanks for the info about The Fonz's fighting style. Unfortuntly, he might need a diffrent stragity if he was protecting someone. (Yeah, I know, I just want the info for a fanfiction. Bad bad bad me.)

No - if someone had a gun in front of him he could see it and take the appropriate defensive actions. However he needed it to keep his back and sides safe. And if there was ever a gun fight he simply zipped up. Don't let little miss logic fool you, she is a wh#&^

Default Happy Days Glove Story

Did they ever show Fonzie punch someone on the show? A: Yes but it was only once.
Only because it was out of necessity so it was needed as self defense for Chachi. As mentioned before, they implied and off camera had Fonz punching and beating guys up but never showed it because this is a family show. BUT in.....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZ1ujsTgQQE#t=2m52s
Click on the link to watch it.
Season 11 Episode 235 "Glove Story" Tired of Fonzie treating him as a kid, Chachi enters a boxing tournament to try to earn some respect. But when Chachi breaks his hand practicing, he tries to keep it a secret. He is trapepd in the ring being beaten up unmerciful, and even after the towel is thrown in the guy continues to pound him. Fonz has to step in and this is the ONLY time you will see Fonzie ON SCREEN hitting someone.

no - they also showed it when the Fonz punched Howard in episode #245- Like Mother, Like Daughter (1/24/84)

I put together the 2 clips showing Fonz actually throwing a punch and hitting someone.
s11 ep06 Glove Story (punching out a boxer in self defense for Chiachi)
s11 ep12 Like Mother Like Daughter (punching Mr.C)

Bonus+
s8e p21 - Mother And Child Reunion (off screen fight)
s07 Ep03 - Fonzie Meets Kat (throwing a guy over a bar)
s4ep83 Happy Days Joanie's Weird Boyfriend (kicking someone in the face)

Like everyone said, it was a family show so they did not want to show people being hit by the Fonz.
https://vimeo.com/108055811

On Happy Days they NEVER or RARELY EVER showed Fonzie hitting or punching someone because it was considered to be a family show.

I always thought the motley crew from "Knock Around The Block" looked pretty tough. This is probably my most favorite Fonz saves the day episode. "Alright gentlemen, help yourself to some cue sticks here"

I TOTALLY AGREE with you 100% here's the video clip of it:

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xu7...ock_shortfilms
This is the FIRST ULTRA-COOL Realistic Fonz situation where he saves the day with a tough crew to back him up.
FIRST Time saves the day.
FIRST Time he hits something (pre-jukebox) and free soda
I Loved this scene TOO!

The other thing was he they DID repeatedly show how strong he was which definitely helped explained why he was feared. There was was also another fight on camera, no punches but it showed not some actual skill (fonz blocking an attack, not just dodging) and Fonz then bending a metal claw with his bare hands.
