    You do realise that every tippy tappy wimp with a ponytail will spread this across the internet as proof that MMA thugs can only fight in a ring/cage, and that their stuff is useless in the street. Example:

    Wimp: "Full contact sparring is unneccesary"
    Martial Artist: "That doesn't make sense, how will you know what works in a real situation unless you train full contact in a controlled enviroment? thus closely replicating a realistic self defence scenario."
    Wimp: "Oh yeah? Well one of you MMA guys got into a real fight an was beaten, here's the link:
    http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/dy/national...31TDY02002.htm
    That proves you MMA thugs are only suited to sportfighting competions, you don't know anything about real martial arts, the stuff we learn in secret can kill people!!!!!!!"

    It sounds to me that the guy simply got out of his car and hit Sakurai. Im not familiar with Sakurai's temperment, but I would imagine this story would be a bit different if it were someone were involved with the temperment of say a Phil Baroni....

    Possibly nothing- the guy might be twice his size. And, maybe the construction worker was a fighter himself. With the exception of some of the more sophisticated grappling and certain fighters techniques, most of the striking is probably effective ( as in real life) with people in the same or not too much over, the weight class. dude, it sucks, but that kung fu movie stuff where a guy just breaks out and destroys someone just isn't the way it goes. Didn't Tito Ortiz get pwned my Lee Murray? **** happens. Now, if only he new the SCARS concepts, this would never have happened. Someone better contact Sakurai and have him get in tough with Kungfools so he can learn the "real" ****.

    I don't know if that's a fair indication. Regardless of ring experience and titles, Lee Murray is *was* clearly one badass mutherfucker on the legandary street. Besides, how many years of actaul MMA training to Murray even have, not much I think

    The street is definitely a different animal. That doesn't mean that MMA isn't the best way to learn how to fight, but there are always other factors that can't be predicted. Unless you take one of Kungfoolss seminars, and you can handle ANYTHING!

    Fighting outside of the ring (i.e. in "t3h str33t") is a different animal if you manage to let your emotions get the better of you.

    Jiu Jitsu was made to teach people how to fight with their minds, not with their heart. Its been my experience that when people get emotionally involved enough to get into a street fight, their emotions get the better of them and they just want to pound some fuckers head into the concrete. This leads them to fighting in a sloppy manner and in a way that would not best suit their fighting style (i.e. a BJJ'er who trades punches rather than taking the fight to the ground).

    He fucking flips over people. He'd more likely cartwheel out of the way or something.



    Could have been anything touching him, such as the guys mirror. "You ran into my mirror, I'm going to rearrange you face!" Besides, a lot of construction workers aren't terribly bright. You need a lot of brawn, not brain power to do their sort of work.
    It was probably a beat up pick-up truck too.

    Oh wait, it's Japan, they don't know what a truck is.

    Well, not a 'real' truck anyways. They can't even drive on the right side of the road.
