from that link:
Despite the best training, some things will be out of your control. Therefore, you must remember that you can’t control everything. It’s part of the preparation. Accept the following facts:
• You will more than likely get hit (hard.)
• Despite your abilities, you may end up on the ground, even if you don’t stay there long.
• Weapons may present themselves, and you may bleed. (Remember, bleeding does not mean certain death. It means only that you've been punctured.)
• You must become familiar with all ranges of combat--this is an absolute!
• You must first learn how to fight in all combat ranges, against all types of aggressors. It may seem like a lot, but it’s the only way you will be prepared for any eventuality. Therefore, you must learn the techniques and tactics of:
1. Firearms: Rifle, shotgun and handgun
2. Edged weapons: Long and short
3. Blunt weapons: Long and short
4. Projectiles: Rocks, slingshots, bottles, knives, etc.
5. Various kicking methods: Thai, French, African, Indonesian, Filipino, Korean, Japanese, American, etc.
6. Various punching methods: Western, Filipino, Chinese, Japanese, Egyptian, Indian, English, etc.
7. All types of close-quarter fighting methods: Filipino, African, Mongolian, Russian, Indonesian, Ethiopian, etc.
8. Different standing grappling methods: Japanese, Swiss, French, Chinese, Korean, Turkish, German, etc.
9. Various ground grappling methods: Brazilian, Indian, English, Japanese, Russian, etc.

Ronin, are you agreeing with what you quoted from that article?

Without trying to criticize anyone, I prefer to train based on my own personal experience from street fighting. That doesn’t mean that I’m not open to suggestions, otherwise I wouldn’t be here.

What do you mean by "train based on my own personal experience from street fighting"?

Include finger grabbing and (gentle) finger locks
Include hair pulling
Simulate biting and (very gentle) eye-gouging
When training with my dad we do these things and more. Ear grabbing just to establish that it could've happened, very controlled (stopped before impact) strikes to the naughty bits, equally controlled strikes to the throat and knees. Keeping these options in serve as a big wake up call to a lot of things that are considered unkind, or illegal for good reasons. The longest lasting injury was probably like 5 minutes when I got poked in the eye once.
As long as you make sure to keep it safe, you'll remain safe. While it might not be full force full contact and all that jazz; it's alive and it keeps your mind open to the possabilities.
When training at TSK we do self defense drills. They start light and end up full resistance. For each situation we are normally given a quick striking sequence said to stun and give you enough time to run, a grappling sequence or something that integrates both where you take the attacker to the ground and apply some choke/lock. Simulated groin strikes are the only thing really added.

I have competed in boxing, kickboxing and wrestling. I also took a little Jujitsu. Based on my experience from street fights, I have modified some of the techniques and drills to make my sporting martial arts more street worthy and less sporty.
