    I just read the article and here's some cynical comments.
    A. the headline should be more like 'How to avoid street fight' or something similar.
    B. reading some stuff doesn't help a ****. One has to actually train stuff to have it work. Especially in stress situation like street fight.
    C. there were lots of stuff that I would call beyond reasonable. Like who the hell goes around and checks surroundings in active manner? Not even cops or soldiers do that on duty.
    D. There was some stuff that was pretty obvious. Like people naturally try to prepare themselves if they see a threat.

    As a whole pretty decent stuff and some good tips, but the context stays a little unclear for me. To whom this stuff is written for and why?

    Class, who can tell me what's wrong with this statement?
    Your opponent is a better fighter, and has backup; They have a blunt or edged weapon, such as brass knuckles or a knife; and you will be hit. Be ready to take a punch.

    That it didn't mentioned the glass and lava? :tongue3:

    The "be ready to take a punch" must be part of some machiavelian eugenics plan to kill any tard who buy into that advise.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    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

    • Grappling means "holding tight onto [your opponent]."
    • When an opponent goes to ground, they will always try to get up immedietely.
    • When this happens, you speed punch their torso "for about a minute."
    • Family members and soccer games are invaluable MMA training
    Okay, that article was some of the dumbest **** I have read in my life. I would LOVE to know what exactly was running through the "mind" of the guy who wrote that.
    "[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
    A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."

    It helps to wear a big helmet like the guy on the left in the picture. (Plus, if your opponent tries teh d34dly eye thrust, you can slam the visor down on his fingers. ) Never understood why NFL players take their helmets off to fight.

    It's that simple!
