    You're saying that Marc Young hasn't been discussed on this site before? Seriously, I'm pretty sure I got the web address from this site some time back, damn.

    He's...okay I guess, somestuff I disagree with, however the majority of his stuff is just common sense, so I feel bad for anybody finding this stuff "revolutionary" in fact, I'm sure the concepts have been done to death here before.

    It's so much about fighting, but more avoiding certain places, recognising behaviour signs etc.

    Interesting article. I'll give him the fact that you should avoid starting fights, people who do start fights, and places where fights break out, but otherwise he's full of **** if he says he has training that will let you survive a "real" street conflict. The badasses of today carry guns and roam in packs with similarly equipped and like minded individuals. If you start something, or they just have it out for you, you get shot. End of story. The best advice the author gives is "don't piss these people off" and even then you have to read between the lines. He ignores the fact that two bit punks, wannabes and drunks who have just been having a bad day start fights too. Most martial arts training, even some of the stuff that leans toward McDojo and Bullshido, will allow you to at least hold your own against these types of people.

    Much of what he says is true. You'd think it's just common sense but it comes from experience and reflection. Even if you beat someone there's a lot of people who are too prideful to let you go unpunished.

    I have two books of Marc Macyoung. He's a terrible writer (he could say what he has to say in 50 pages instead of 300), but his books have some useful information, but also a lot of bullshit.

    What confuses me about these mythical streetfights is that supposedly the street people have some secret streetfighting skills that instantly nullify all your training. Doesn't this sound a lot like those RBSD scams which promise to teach you unstoppable killer techniques? What is this "cheating" that Marc says streetfighters use? It doesn't seem to be defined anywhere.

    Everyone has just two arms and two legs.

    He could mean that people 'cheat' with dishonorable ways, such as weapons (knives, guns, brass knuckles), eye gouging, low blows, surprise attacks, backstabbing, first shots, more people with him, etc. Basically every trickery involved with fighting unfair. On the street, there's no such thing as a fair one v.s. one, according to Marc.

    From the posted article, it sounds like Macyoung means that a streetfighter will always hit you first, which will then nullify your training.
