First of all let me say that I know this topic was discussed already so don' bother pointing that out.
What I wanted to add is just like we are used to only training and fighting against martial artists, stret fighters only train/fight against other street fighters so doesen't these two variables negate each other? A street fighter will prob. have more experience, less discipline (in maintaining guard structure), no kicks (prob.) and weapons ( which he may or may not know how to use effectively). A MA will have less real world experience, better kicks (hopefully) and is less likely to be carryinga weapon (unless he's trained in weapons in which case he's probably carrying something and is very skillful with it. of course I mean legal or semi legal weapons, I dont expect people to be crusing the subways with samurai swords and nagenatas (5 foot pole with a 21inch blade)}

unless you are experienced in fighting on the street you will surley lose against one.
if you have little or no fighting skills, you will not have a single chance. don't kid yourself.

In your profile it says you study "Sayok Kali". Where and who do you study under?

Jamoke could you be more specific? Saying street fighters kick ass is pretty vague. Like Os said, what makes a street fighter? Some guy who fights every weekend at the bar, a bouncer at that bar, or some guy who maybe fights a few times a month? You're being way to vague.
I personally am not impressed with the whole street fighter thing. An "experienced" is dangerous, but who says all "street" fighters are experienced? When does someone become considered a "street" fighter?
And fighting once a month is not as good as training 3 times a week.

"And fighting once a month is not as good as training 3 times a week."
That's like saying getting in the pool once a month is not as good as going through your back stroke motions on dry land three times a week.

Your comparison only works if he is talking about doing kata 3 times a week.

Inner cities (at least where I live) have people who have been fighting constantly since grade school, against multiple attackers, as multiple attackers, with and without weapons. Their "art" is based on simple survival. I wouldn't underestimate anyone.

InsideOut : that's correct.
As I said before, I personaly know people that specificly go out looking for fights just aobut every week, and are pretty good at finding what they look for. Most of these guys would hand me my ass, despite the time and effort I spend training, sparring, and lifting weights.
Reasliticly, I think I need another year or so to be able to take one of them in a real fight.
