The most important thing for physical conditioning is that your able to move. Being agile and mobile is far more important than endurance cardio vascular.
    I'd recommend going to Bankstown, Auburn or Birrong station around 3:30 on a weekday and watching some fights, seeing as you've never actually witnessed a street brawl.

    Combatants engage, dis-engage, threaten each other and psych themselves up, then re-engage, so fights do go on a lot longer than one punch ko's, with new participants joining all the time.

    Get out of your head the idea that fights are solely between two people with plenty of space to manoeuvre, and that no one will intervene at any point before the conclusion, cause that just doesn't happen

    You have to be a special kind of retarded.
    News flash, here buddy, sparring is very good exercise, it sure as fuck works your Physical conditioning, your agility, your mobility and gasp your ability to fight.
    A better analogy might be trying to learn how to drive on the street by going to Track Days.
    Yes there are adjustments to be made but you sure as fuck are going to know how to control the car.

    Winning street fights doesn't make you good at Martial Arts or Fighting.

    Physical fitness and fighting fitness is not the same thing.
