Hardwood floors are at least somewhat street-like.

Back in the wrestling boom-time of the 19th century, it was common for professionals to wrestle, say, 3 rounds, each round being under the rules of a different style - collar-and-elbow, side-hold, Cumberland/Westmorland, etc.
The unintended homogenizing effect of the Olympic Games was a real dampener, though, as many regional folk-styles not selected for Olympic competition found themselves struggling for funding and recognition. Those that had enough grass-roots support struggled through, others faded away and (some) have been subject to more-or-less imaginative revivals.Check out the Bullshido.net Western Martial Arts Forum for all things Western, martial and arty.
