    Hi I give advice

    Yeah, just signing in I guess. Another faithful noob follower. Not a bad thing to be a noob, always gives you a fresh perspective. If you ever find yourself not quite feeling like a noob, try doing something a little harder.

    Kick boxing and Bjj, sounds to me like you pretty much got it covered. If you can afford it go to separate school - one specializing in striking and one in grappling. Once you get good at striking and find a couple of punches that work very well for you, and a few throws and strangles your most comfortable with, you'll find that you have a confident way of solving most problems that may arise. That however means you have to invest a few thousand hours in training before you get confident enough in your base techniques (which you will have tested through sparring). It's the simplest things that will work best: quick, accurate, and strong techniques will end a fight quickly. All the rest you learn, as Geoff Thompson would say, is your backup, or safety. If it gets to the ground you've got Bjj, if he doesn't go down right away - striking combinations, if he gets to close - dirty boxing. You'll have to amp the aggression however, and deal with the adrenalin. Since you are in London you could also look up some of Geoff's seminars or classes or whatever, they'll teach you a lot about fear control, the right mind set, and behavioral psychology of a violent confrontation. There's a great concept Geoff calls The Fence, where you appear non threatening but still have your hands ready for attack. They do a lot of pressure work and full contact sparring. It's worth looking into, even just a couple of seminars will help you get the general idea, and pointers on how to train for real brawls.

    So yeah, my advice: boxing like crazy, Bjj as a backup, some Geoff Thompson (he's got tons of videos and books that can be a great help also). Be an absolute master of a few trusty moves, and have a nice, reflexive backup response.

    No, he was posting in another noob's thread, combining what everyone else said and that post was born.
