    Experience with street fights?

    Hey guys,

    I am sure I will find a lot of gym or street fighters here, so maybe some of you an give me an answer.

    What techniques do you use in street fight? Do you rely on fists or do you thing you should know levers and other things you learn on MMA?




    Here is why I ask (if I sound silly please read carefully, I am sure it makes sense )

    I want to be good street fighter. Don't ask why, I just do. Punctum. I train Muiai Thai and and I love it, but I have a problem with it: I also want to have nice shape but Thai is simply for me soooo exhausting and it makes very difficult to gain any muscle at all (unless I want to train Thai only once, twice a week and even then I can feel significant growth speed decrease). I tried MMA and it was much less intense to cardio. ...But I still like Thai more .

    But the primary goal is being a good brawler. I had a couple of fights so far with but with not very strong opponents. So fists was all I needed. But next time I don't want kinda end up completely beaten by some kid just because he knows a couple lever techniques and I don't . So I wonder, should I carry on with Thai or should I switch to MMA?

    And as for martial arts as Judo and so, I know that would be ideal option, but I simp0ly don't like it


    Thank you for answer and thank you not laughing at me

    These are tried and true street fight tactics.

    Honorable? No. But neither is getting knocked out and kicked in the face/head till you end up in a coma for a few days it forever.
    My daddy always told me the only rules in a street fight are there are no rules.

    Unfortunately In my younger and dumber days I had experience with this. I would say the two best things you can learn are boxing and wrestling. And by that I mean getting back onto your feet if your get knocked down. I once took a guy done jujitsu style and got my head kicked in by 3-4 people standing around that had no business in the fight other than they saw an easy target to hit. Never underestimate the allure of a coward getting a sucker punch( or kick in my case) in on someone. Once I got to my feet on that one, the guy I was fighting was fighting the crowd because they were kicking him too. Honestly thought I was going to get beat to death that night.

    One on one fighting I still like jujitsu, I was getting worked over pretty good one night by a dude until I by accident slipped a punch and got ahold of him and took him down pretty hard.And by worked me over, he messed me up pretty good. That’s when I knew I needed to learn a bit of boxing. But one on one on the streets is very very rare. So being able to stay standing, avoid a take down or bodyslam and throwing good hard accurate shots and not throwing hay makers and getting caught off balance is the key.

    At least that’s what I learned getting may ass kicked all those years

    I've been a boxer and kick boxer for over 40 years. Well, I've actually fought for 10 years and coached the rest of the time. So I'm teaching stand up fighting at this MMA school. As long as the rules are stand up only, I'm kicking tail. The next class is a rolling class. I thought I'd hang around and see what that's like. We start standing up and I feel comfortable. In the blink of an eye I'm flat on my back with this guy on top of me choking me out. I thought my head was going to pop off. Mind you, I'm an experienced fighter but being off my feet I had ZERO leverage to do anything. If I had the choice when I was starting out, to choose muay thai or mma, knowing what I know now, I would have chosen the mma for sure.

    I have some skill in boxing but most of my experience is in wrestling (sambo, freestyle, and Greco roman). It's important to be well rounded but if I had to choose I'd rely more on my grappling skills. The odds of knocking somebody out (who knows how to stand properly/ move their head, angle, etc.) vs. getting joint lock or choke hold always seemed lower to me. I feel way more confident closing the distance and looking to improve position vs. swinging at a moving target.

    Train as best you can. The problem is, real combat can't really be trained for. You can set up whatever kinds of drills you want in a dojo, on a gun range, whatever. But we aren't REALLY trying to kill each other, and that's a limitation that can't realistically be overcome. So the real answer to being a better street fighter would be: practice getting into real street fights. Trouble with that is you get hurt, killed, or locked up for hurting/killing others.

    The real best advice is: Keep your hands to yourself and stay out of trouble. You'll live longer that way.

    Fighting (actually fighting people you don't know, not MMA matches) is not a game, or a hobby, or a sport. Not one with any future anyway. Anyone who treats it as a game will eventually run into one of us who doesn't. Don't be a "tough guy".

    Not much a of a fighter here, I’m a big guy so if I absolutely have to fight, I’ll get to the ground ASAP. Never know who you’re up against.

    Thinking under a rush, strong core/legs, and the inability to be knocked out. The rest is taking them to the ground and raping them.

    Seen several great MMA fighters get their asses straight up handed to them by drunk rednecks.

    My brother was the ultimate street brawler. When he came at a guy he could take a haymaker square on the chin by anyone but it didn't matter. They were on the ground and his big ass bowed legs weren't gonna let them up. His first shoulder operation was from pounding the back of a guys head.

    He has knocked more people unconcious than chloroform.
    Every toe to toe fighting teqnique is useless on the ground and you cant learn taking a hit and being unphased. Its a birthright.

    Most stiffen up in a fight and get clusterfucked from adrenaline. Its the rare breed that turn off everything in their mind but killing fast and hard. Martial arts are useless against satan. After a motorcycle wreck my brother was extremely combative with police with swelling of the brain and 27 skull fractures.
    Study all you want, someone like him won't be beat on the street by tia jin jistsu or all the technique in the world.

    To normal guys like me it will be whoever gets that lucky shot or two so study boxing and wrestling as MS said.

    That’s the best point yet. I’m not proud to say that my buddies and I treated it sometimes as a form of entertainment. Lucky for us, none of us got killed or hurt. But looking back, that was just pure luck we didn’t run into the guy that was strapped and wasn’t about to play our little game.

    I take that back, we did get a gun pulled on us. My friend was making fun of this Eminem looking wannabe at a party. He pulled out his glock, put it up to his head and said something to the effect of you about weren’t anymore. Talk about a music stopping moment like in the movies. My buddy was ghost white, I’ll never forget that. That wasn’t really an instance of picking a fight. Just a matter of fucking with the wrong dude.
