I dont thunk MMA are for real fighting.
MMA is a great sport but it has many limutations for streetfighting lets take a look at some common MMA technqoues:
Boxing striking: The problum with this style of striking is that MMA are only used to hitting with gloves on. On the street there are no gloves do you think your opponent is going to sit there wile you put your gloves on? So these people that train this way will hurt thier hand when they punch for real. besides punching in a streetfight will probably hurt your hand if you hit thier skull this is why in eagle claw kung fu we use strikes like this
my frend trains at this place and i think thier ranges fighting is better than in MMA and before you ask yes i have been on the receeving end of his technqiues and they hurt a lot and work. http://www.headingleykarate.org/range.htm
armbars: i would also just bite the foot. I think when you go for armbars you leave your kneecaps open to counterttack. in eagle claw we have technic to attack the knee
we dont have groundfighting but we can apply this principle to the ground and destroy the kneecap. at my kung fu school we have been testing this against guard, mount and rubber guard and it works great.
mount: the mount is not a safe position there could be someone sneaking up behind you. you also leave your neck exposed to breaks
yes this is standup fighting but we also apply this principle to the ground this is why we dont spend much time training on the ground.
im surprised how many people here hate TMA when all arts came from TMA. You have lot of people that do brasilian jujitsu but they dont know that it comes from jujitsu so why all the hate?
(this is were brasilian jujitsu comes from)
i just want to say that i respect all styles including things like bjj i just think that they dont work and are a waste of time.

In the time it took you to write this, you could have done something constructive.

That karate group's choice of picture of the "clinch" is concerning.

Jesus Christ hasn't this dead horse been beaten, beaten some more, hung, burried, dug up for yet another round of beatings, shot, whipped and beaten yet again enough fucking times?

oh wait...you're serious
have you been in a real fight before? in my experience, a couple of punches are thrown, someone throws the other person to the ground, person on top or standing beats vunerable opponent to bloody plup. sounds pretty close to an mma fight to me except the person on the ground knows how defend themselves much better in an mma fight.
opps forget one last thing, while standing victoriously over beaten opponent, his jackass ***** friends run up and completely blind side you.....all out brawl ensues till principle/ police officers show up
ps- biting a foot while in an armbar is an open invitation to a stinky heel sandwich and some broken teeth

I can't believe anyone can't see this for what it is.
