    TBK's MMA and Self Defense Survey (Fixed)

    Moved here.

    Kat and Spat don't count until they fight their first MMA venues either.

    Anyway, this is for MMA fighters.

    Do you ever train for "self defense" situations (weapons, multiple opponents, bar fights.. dirty techniques)?

    Sweet. This will be a fairly accurate poll of bullshido members that have fought MMA.

    Which will be what? All of what, 10 to 15 people?

    Seriously, while we definitely have a competitor community here, it isn't that big. Or are you including all forms of full contact comps?

    No, just MMA fighters. They are all that matter.

    Just out of curiousity, what are you using this data for?

    Update: ok, backtracked and got my answer. Are you asking this in any other forums? Because I don't see how you're going to get a sample size that's any more representative than those TMA'ers slinging their just-so stories.
