last week i had a fight.
my opponent used a really weird fighting style that i identified as mao gong (cat style kung fu). this was really rare and afterwards i asked him where he learned it. he said from the internet.
mao gong is very artistic and stylish, but i can prove that it is street applicable.
what do u guys think?
Ultimately I think it is more down to fighter and their adaptability and how they use their chosen style as opposed to the style itself. Saying that, there are plenty of style I would advise against for street combat, but then again I would advise against them full stop.
I think 'testing the waters' is a good method for deciding a street applicable style. If you have a buddy that you could spar full contact with you will learn quickly what works and what doesn't.
In street fighting there are no rules and anything goes. Setting up a fight to find out what your opponent can do is a good way to get yourself killed. Unless you are familiar with the techniques used by your opponent and the rules they fight with or without, you are setting yourself up for a beat down.
