The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
Try reading Mark Hatmaker's " Savage strikes"an excellent inexpensive book that'll give an idea of how to adjust you boxing game for mma.
God you people need to learn your American already.
I would suggest training as much as possible on fighting in and from the clinch - if you like to box on the inside, that's where you're going to end up a whole lot.
I was beat to the punch recommending Mark Hatmaker's Savage Strikes book. Basically he makes the following modifications:
-although slips are okay, bobbing and weaving can be problematic as in MMA because bending over opens you up to non boxing stuff.
-Stonewalling is your friend. For high stonewalling, see Rodney King's videos as they are a bit more well suited for the lack of gloves.
-Upper body tools are the meat and potatoes of the MMA striking arsenal, and it is built off the straight boxing arsenal. So you've got that going for you.
Aside from that, learn to sprawl well.
To the original poster, definitely check out Rodney King's crazy monkey defense. Easy to learn and become proficient in, and it works even when you're tired and sloppy.
On this topic, in boxing, aren't we always taught that wherever you're hititng with your hands, your head must follow?
I.e. if you hit high, your head is high. When you hit low (body shots) your head must follow and go low (bending legs).
In my muay thai class, I'm told not to lower myself or my head to do a body shot, as I may have to eat a knee or low roundhouse. My seniors in class site a recent Sanda match (I didn't get to see it) where one opponent was bobbing and weaving and going in for a body hook when he got a roundhouse on the head and got KO'ed.
What does everyone else think? Throw out the boxing "rules" and always keep head high for kickboxing and MMA fights?
