    I find it laughable when "instructors" talk about having dozens even hundreds of streetfights. You know without being stabbed or shot or let's face it...killed.
    The videotape market has a lot of this stuff floating around. Jim West's series on streetfighting is pretty good, but he claims to have been in over "600 streetfights"....
    ...uh huh....I understand people try to hype and market their tapes but that's a BIT steep. It5's also something nice to say about urself that can't be PROVEN.

    Oh come on! There's nothing wrong with embellishing your stats a LITTLE.

    I've lived in some rough places, and I've only been in 2 fights in the past 10 years. And neither of them were, in my mind, STREETFIGHTS. More like squabbles.

    Well, at streetfight doesn't mean you have to be shot or stabbed.Thats like saying all fights end up on the ground. Its a pretty general statment. I do agree that many instructors hype themselves up though. I myself have only had to use my skills in real situations 4 times. I don't brag about this to my students or others, but If I am asked about it from one of them I'll answer any questions they may have.

    It depends what they're classing as a fight, I think most of them are bending the truth a little bit. e.g. including arguements and confrontations that didn't get physical.

    ok sure being in a street fight does not mean you are going to get stabbed or shot or whatever. But if you expect me to believe that someone has been in six-fucking-hundred street fights without getting shot or stabbed, then I have to believe he is mugging girl scouts.

    My first jujitsu teacher was in several hundred streetfights when he was younger, but thats because he was a psycho who would go picking a fight every friday and saturday night. Do that for a few years and it quickly mounts up. He modified his ways by the time I had met him, only getting in a fight every month or two.
    Lets face it, the majority of streetfights involve a swift pummelling of one by the other before being pulled off, and very little in the way of two people duking it out for half an hour.
    Also, if you are the one picking the fights, then life also becomes a lot easier.

    Street Fights doesn't mean having a knife on one end and a gun on the other. It may just very well be the same old technique, punch and kick.

    A guy who has recently started doing some teaching at my club has been a doorman for 23 years, and has been in hundreds of physical confrontations. He wears a kevlar 'second chance' vest at work now, due to the increased number of weapons being carried these days.

    Anyone not working in security who has been in that number of fights has got some kind of psychological problem...

    Bear in mind that starting a scrap back in the late 70s or 80s wasn't really lethal. Now, you could get capped for looking at someone the wrong way. This is the problem with our pussified society, nobody puts the scared, wanna-be tough guys in their place early in life and they grow up trigger-happy because it's so easy to force that "respect".
