He called you a bastard, didn't he?
You should have told him "Your mom!"
Sammy, sportfighting is a part of training for "street" fights. Sure, there are rules, but they are there so you can keep training. If there were no rules, people would be injured more than they are now and training time would decrease. Sports competition is there to give the closest semblance to a real fight without breaking the law or unecessarily risk people's lives. Sure, those people that only do boxing or kickboxing might have a hard time in a "real" fight if they've never dealt with weapons training. Everyone will have a hard time dealing with multiple opponents, no matter how they train. Also, people that do sports competitions don't have a magic spell on them that keeps them from using "dirty" tactics when it comes to a fight.
In short, if you train only for the ring, you'll be good in the ring and adequate for that particular type of situation in "the street." If you don't do any sport-fighting type of training, you'll not be good in any situation. There is a balance to be had. Train like a fighter but also learn the tactics that might be useful in a real "selfdefense" situation. I train Muay Thai and BJJ, which covers any unarmed self defense situation. I train in FMA to cover weapons. I stay in shape so I can run away from multiple opponent situations.
You really should read the Bullshido FAQ before starting a thread like this.
I can't say about your CMA training ,but it is clear from what you have writen you are not telling the truth about doing MT. You wrote MT teaches you how to take a hit not avoid a hit.
Yet 1st day we teach 3 way to avoid the hit . forward inside, outside, back .
You wrote any street fighter can do a MT knee kick .
Yet we see UFC fighters not doing it right.
So the only anwser is you don't know MT.
Now no school , no competition ?
Just come clean , you don't do MT
If you start being honest I think there are people on this site who can help you.
If not you best go back to Phil. IMO
How did I miss this trainwreck thread????
Anyway, with my RBSD hat on, I think that Sammy's opening post is, IMO,.... bollox. The sorta attitude that makes self-defence training a bit of a stigma these days.
You are a total Douchbag. Train more, post nevermore.

SammyKing, I challenge you to a street fight...
I think SammyKing is obviously jealous (or affraid) simply because it's occuring to him that Either Kid or Anna would absolutely destroy him in a fight.
Props to both girls, lookin' good.
I've already told Kat and Ashly that they need to stop scaring insecure men.

You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!
The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.
I think this is a gross generalization, but it is true, in relation to some other fighting systems.
You wrote MT teaches you how to take a hit not avoid a hit.
I do MT and you never take a hit you don't have too.

If you are learning to take a hit and not avoid a hit that not MT.
