Heck I don't have a problem admitting when I am wrong or think I am. I learned with the help of this board that I would love to learn to FMA but I don't have the time commitment/money at this point. Who knows maybe I am all wrong and he is right? I am all about objective truth, if your ways works better than that's the way to go.

An eye gouge on somebody whose head is moving (as in "they're really fighting back") may happen by accident, but the percentage is low--and it's even less likely that it would be a strike that would have the exact depth and angle required to end the fight...though it might serve to piss off an adversary even more. If you already control the body, neck and head enough to get your fingers into an opponent's eyes, what will you tell the judge who asks you: "If you already had him, why did you rip at his eyes"?
I am trying to keep an open mind about MMA for SD. I guess I default to MMA=BJJ and I don't want to go the ground because I disagree with many on this site that all SD attacks and street fights go to the ground. That has not been my experience personally and you can watch many a YT fight where I see nothing more than a sloppy haymaker shot and then a clinch.........the clinch occurs because of sloppy technique IMO, maybe I am wrong?

DanielSaun. Where in Colorado are you? One thing that comes to mind is that Enshin is pretty much based in Colorado (there are multiple schools in Denver), will teach you to fight, and isn't a "going to the ground" art. It sounds like you're not that hot on the instruction you're getting in the first place.

So i'd say either join up with other MABS people and larp it up- OR check out Dog Brothers/ Paul Vunak to learn things SIMILAR to what you are talking about/interested in- but grounded in an alive realistic system.
What is MABS I tried do a search and can't find a description or website? I like Vunak alot I just never found learning from a video replaced in person instruction. And do to $$$ training with him in person isn't possible.

Martial Arts Bull ****- You'll find [if you lurk this site and read alot] that there are ALOT of people that value ear slaps/eye gouges- unfortunately MOST of them train these- to the exclusion of functional systems.
There are alot of "anti MMA-sport" people who teach techniques based off of 'what isnt allowed' and incorrectly assume that means the techniques are SUPER good.
My suggestion? watch 'die less often' by the dog brothers- and then join up with a FMA- or BJJ school. (and keep your moth shut when you disagree with them- lol)
