    What should I train in?

    If I want to learn how to fight in a realistic, high-tension and fast fight, what should I train in?

    I'm thinking a martial art thats focused PURELY on how to fight in a real life situation. A martial art where stalling or only exposing the back of the head(cuz its illegal to hit there) and other competition style tactics aren't allowed. One that would allow me to see an opening, react to it and take it without hesitation.

    Chat-fu and Commonsense-gung. 99.99% of all fights can be avoided by common sense, lifestyle choices and talking.

    There isn't any martial art without stalling or exposing the back of the head.

    Awareness of the moment of opportunity and reaction timing are trained by all good combat sports. Boxing, Judo, BJJ, Wrestling, Sambo, Muay Thai etc... No one martial art has a monopoly on that. Hell Rugby, Football or Ping Pong will teach you how to spot an opnening, react to it and take it without hesitation. Its a basic sporting skill

    Sounds like you want to go out and get in street fights. You really need to join a club or gym and start training. Sparring may help you get some of this pent up aggression out. Also may give you a realistic notion of what can happen with someone who is trained.

    If you're looking for self defense, common sense and avoiding fights is the way to go.

    If you want to beat people up without getting your clothes dirty, boxing and kali.

    If you want to throw people onto their heads and make fun of them afterwards, Judo.

    Didn't you just start boxing? That's pretty much what you want based on that.

    Mostly self-defense. I live in a bad neighborhood and just recently noticed that EVERY week there is a scuffle in the streets(gotten so used to it I barely notice). Couple that with the fact that I sometimes walk home late at night. I just don't want to get dragged into one of the disputes that unprepared.

    So far, I've avoided most of them via "talk-fu" and just getting the **** out'a there but what if I can't get out?

    It's a common phrase in English to refer to someone as having a 'broomstick up their ass'.
    This serves as a double entendre, since Wing Chun fighting stance utilises a 'broomstick' posture.

    This thread poses a general question, and does not concern martial technique. Therefore it has been moved to YMAS, the general martial arts forum.

    StepInCross, the training fora are moderated for content. Please do not post off topic or non-technical threads in these areas.
