In a streetfight, the last place you wanna be is tied to your opponent and lying on the ground (opponent); it limits your mobility and leaves you too open against multiple attackers.
I agree for the most part. Ground game might be useful for a quick takedown and ground and pound, although that's purely theoretical.

I have been fortunate to have trained with some of the best guys; Josh Barnett (PRIDE, UFC, DREAM), Francisco Filho (K-1), Tsuyoshi Kohsaka(RINGS, PRIDE, UFC), Maurice Smith (K-1, UFC), Randy Couture, Frank Shamrock, to name a few.

So much for my ground and pound idea, although one can get sucker punched in any position.

Interesting. The BJJ gym I've trained at definitely involved strikes. Another one I tried out did exactly what you said. I guess it's all about personal preference. Some people prefer sport BJJ.

Something I need to work on.

What's the secret? Keep getting hit until you're used to it? I don't want to end up looking like Mickey Rourke.

I've had the same experience. I don't like gi because it seems so unrealistic.

Ex do not just stop and reset after someone taps out, instead after they tap, the person should just release pressure and allow the person to work an escape and continue the role.
Great advice.

It is no weakling that stands in front of you and there is no room for bullies in this world because the bluff is called as soon as the bell rings.
Great post!

...After my 20 years of martial arts experience...you are correct! MMA is BS in the street or a bar. What are you going to do in a bar...take me down and put me in the guard while my friend breaks a Bacardi bottle over your head? Not quite. MMA works best in arranged matches with rules. Real martial arts work best in quick, reactionary scenarios where there is a definitive attacker and a definitive defender.

That's part of the reason I'm doing Muay Thai now. A well placed kick or knee can do wonders.

I have trained muay thai for 7 years now....been down training in thailand a month every year as well

really love this sport....the lowkicks, knees and the elbowes are so effective....of course combined with great boxing skills.....it's really the boxing that opens for all other great techniques....i always defend/strikes with at least 3-4 techniques in a row...

I just came across this thread, sorry for the late comments.

I've laughed at a lot of what has been said about BJJ. All I can say is that for those of you who think BJJ isn't legit in a real fight - You have never fought a real Jiu Jitsu guy. LOL.

To all of you guys who train other arts; that's awesome! I wish I had time to learn other disciplines. Nothing but respect to each and every one of you!

this makes no sense! MMA is a mix of martial arts, it not ground fighting.

As far as street fighting is concerned all you really need is good boxing and wrestling skills. Stay on your feet, don't get taken down, and if you do get taken down have the ability to get right back up.


I started martial arts because my friend's dad was an instructor and two because my friends got into a lot of fights. And street fights are totally different, confined spaces, number of opponents, materials around you... You also don't have hand wraps, broken hand if not careful... However, it doesn't mean MMA, boxing, or BJJ can't help you or translate into street fighting self defense. It's sometimes not practical to use a certain style in a certain situation that's all. Also consider that MMA is probably the greatest for self defense since there are rules and just like MMA we have laws in the real world that determine whether you defended yourself and/or restrained the person or assaulted them even if they attacked you first. Legally it's better for you to KO someone then to armbar someone and snap an arm. You'd have a 50/50 chance of getting assault charges with a KO and almost definite charge with an arm snap even if you were hit first.


I've trained, Judo, BJJ, scholastic wrestling, boxing, Muay Thai, and JKD. I loved BJJ until I was taught boxing. Boxing is just out of this world. Also learning how to disarm weapons along with good running shoes is also a good idea. Sometimes it's just better to run fast as hell. I remember doing JKD and the ground work, they use to tell us to gouge the eyes, pick up weapons, and do anything possible to stop your opponent, lol. Sounded good then...

I love my Fairtex stuff. I know it's like the Nike of Muay Thai gear, but I've never had a problem with the quality of anything from them.

Winning, Cleto Reyes, Rival, and Hayabusa. Winning are amazing gloves no matter what, but are even better if you've injured your hands or are prone to injury. Cleto reyes, the mexican ones are really nice, the fight gloves have less padding, puncher's glove... Rival is my favorite, all my gear is rival, all around great and not as pricey as the other top brands mentioned. The mma people swear by Hayabusa gloves, they are very nice.

How old are the majority of you guys training? How old is too late to start, not to be competitive but to just stay in shape and learn? I have taken some kick boxing lessons in the past from a private teacher, but nothing organized. I love watching UFC and WEC and have gone to a few local events now that it has been legalized in PA.

Fezz93 you must have also trained with Matt Hume, Trevor Jackson, Ivan S and maybe Luis? They all used to train together.
