Likewise, if all you do is grappling and you fight a guy with a knife, or friends then you're fucked. However, I would prioritize learning striking over grappling if you could only learn one for self-defense, applicable to more situations, and keeps you on your feet if you need to run. The main advantage of grappling, imo, is helping you get back up if someone puts you on the ground.

>Does boxing work in a street fight?
https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/champ-hatton-mugged-on-hol-639249

>BOXING champion Ricky Hatton has been mugged on holiday in China. A gang of thugs confronted the 27-year-old WBA welterweight champ and snatched his £4,000 Rolex watch.

>Agent Paul Speak said the boxer had been out for drinks with friends but became separated from them. He was trying to make his way back to his hotel in Shanghai when he was attacked. Mr Speak said: "There was a scuffle. He was pretty scared but did the sensible thing by not trying to fight his way out. Whenever he goes abroad he usually wears a cheap plastic watch but on this occasion he forgot it.

Then, there's the cas eof Amir Khan getting ebaten up by some thugs in Birmingham. The original article has beens crubbed from the net, it's now about Amir claiming he knocked 1 guy out and escaped with his pals via car vs. one of the thugs claiming they ripped Khan and his posse a new asshole and showing off some of the good they allegedly looted off them.

Case 3:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denis_Boytsov
tl;dr: Russian pro boxer from Germany (20 fights, 18 KOs) is found unconscious in a subway tunnel, big head trauma. Is now more or less a vegetable. Official version: It was an accident. Rumors: He messed with the wrong people.

Anyway, there are lots of stories like that. Boxers aren't exactly invincible in a street fight. Nerds on /xs/ will obviously disagree, actual boxers won't.

>>111764
Freezing is just a matter of being accustomed to the situation. So, get into trouble, not necessarily fights, but trouble.

Another trick: Deep breaths are said to help, as is smiling or even moving just a few fingers (as in sleep paralysis).

Basically, freezing is when your brain doesn't know what to make of the situation.
>>
>>114893

now go on Youtube and look up "boxer street fight knockout"

For every fight about a boxer getting knocked out you can find quite a few that ended up fine. Anything can happen in the streets anon, no fighting style will make you invincible, but here you're framing boxing as ineffective which is just dishonest.

>Funny thread because I went to BJJ yesterday for the first time and that is literally what I did. I am so much stronger than the average dudes who train there that I can simply get up with them holding on to me like retarded koalas. Until yesterday I was apprehensive of the whole "technique beats strength" but now I will never shut up again. Grapplers who don't have an advanced level in terms of strength are absolutely useless. At least a striker can simply try to drop you with a well placed punch to the jaw.

What happened to karate, bros?

This footage from the 1987 world championship seems exactly the type of ruleset that makes karate interesting. It's full contact, punches are utilized resulting in a faster-paced match.

This looks much more exciting and useful than whatever the ruleset is today.

That was true back in the 1970s & 1980s. Now that shit is fucking boring because they barely do anything. So much so that most people would rather pay millions to see a bunch of 30+ W, 0 L midgets point spar.

Still prefer kickboxing with minimalist gloves without wraps or bareknuckle when it comes to ruleset for full contact.

is there any onthological difference between a fight and a savage beat-down? is a beatdown a fight where one opponent was just too strong?
or is a fight a failed beatdown where the 2 combatants just happened to be of equal skill and might?
why is it socially accepted to watch a boxing match,but if you watch a "hobbo street fight beatdown" you're suddenly labaled a freak?
>>
In a fight there is a reasonable chance that either party may win. A beat-down is necessarily one sided.

To everyone saying BJJ is shit: Every loser I've smashed in a street fight has felt like they're made of playdough and never stand a chance against me. I train BJJ 99% of the time, and practice some striking maybe 1% of the time for my training. It's so easy to plow through these losers that think grappling doesn't translate to real world fights. Once you get these losers with overinflated egos on the ground (takes all of 5 seconds), you can either open up on them with strikes, or just choke them out/break an arm. Why is it so easy to beat the shit out of these losers? Well most of them are beta idiots that've never excercised a day in their life, and the ones that do lift simply don't have the base and elite muscular density that most BJJ practitioners have. Basically it's like comparing a gorilla to a human, the gorilla has insane muscle density compared to a person. That's why BJJ is the MOST useful martial art out there for self defense.

the main countries in the "bloody" tauromachy are mexico and spain. i think USA has some rodeo version without any blood drawn.
and in chine some kung-fu guys are wrestling bulls..but i think theyre not matador bulls nor sementals.

How difficult it is to do tricks on skateboards with longboard wheels?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>113556
this it's the softness that sucks. big wheels are fun, soft wheels are not
>>
>>113505
Without spacers, enjoy the wheel bite.
Obviously the biggest thing is a steeper angle for your pops, it's all good though I run this setup personally. My board is kind of old school, but not with a flat nose. Not sure about the terminology, it's not a fish tail maybe I'll post pics if interested.
I can still kickflip, do grinds and all that. But it's mainly just for transport, I don't go to the skatepark (local one is shit). I'm mainly into just having fun anyway, normally just on my driveway fucking around doing casper/primo shit when I get bored.

>>113556
Also this. Assuming by unresponsive he's only talking about landing.
>>
>>113505
Take off the riser pads and size down to a 56mm wheel. Longboard wheels will make it flip slow af and is a dead giveaway of a scrub
>>
had those exact wheels on a mini board that i used for a cruiser back in high school (7 years ago). i'd be able to ollie up curbs and do kick flips, but more advanced stuff like tre flips where just too weird

All flip tricks will be slower

No one is saying Sanda and Shuai Jiao are traditional CMA. Quite the opposite. They are recognisably modern hybrid arts like most effective modern arts (MMA, K1 Kickboxing, Submission Wrestling/No-Gi, even Muay Thai has a part British boxing lineage and Gi BJJ a part catch-wrestling lineage). Just that they are CMA.

So OP was right. No Kung-Fu (i.e. traditional CMA) styles work in a street fight vs MMA or modern combat sports athletes (including Sanda and Shuai Jiao practitioners).
>>
>>108861
Depends on how you're using the word "traditional" I guess, but Shuai Jiao has been around for thousands of years.
>>
>>108863

I thought it borrowed from much more recent sources like Mongolian wrestling, Judo etc? That would make it a living modern hybrid art.

>No one is saying Sanda and Shuai Jiao are traditional CMA
This is what litteraly every tcm fag says. You can see this in litteraly every single kung fu thread on this board, including this one

Well, both are older than some so-called TMA, depends on how you define TMA I guess.
