I guess it depends on what you consider a street fight. My impression is a life or death situation, against multiple opponents with various weapons.
As long as it’s not something as simple as a bar fight.
First, any judo, BJJ, or wrestling is worthless, because as soon as you take one opponent to the ground, the others will kick the shit out of you.
Second, boxing, Muay Thai, Tae kwon do (sp?), and some karate is worthless as it is geared toward tournaments, with no exposure to multiple opponents or weapons.
Boxing and Muay Thai are excellent fighting techniques. The whole point of both of them is to inflict damage on an opponent to such a level that they cannot continue to fight. Although I have studied both, for a beginner, boxing is the easiest and quickest to get a basic level of competency. Therefore, it is the most effective at early levels of training.
I also recommended wrestling so if the fight does go to the ground, HHH is not lying on his back getting his face pounded. The majority of the street fights I have seen have ended up on the ground at some point. To ignore this would be stupid.
HHH, depending on how quickly you pick things up, you could be quite competent in both wrestling and boxing in 6-12 months. Not world class by any means, but you should have more than enough to take care of yourself in a local rumble.
Great points massif ,thanks heaps
Hmmmmm lots of good info guys and gals,i thank u for that.
Seems to me that Boxing is the overall winner here,with muay thai coming in a close second.
Very interesting opinions by everyone,different strokes for different folkes as the saying goes.
Someone asked me how much time i am willing to put into this,well having a full time job and small family plus afternoon gym work does not leave me much time outside of that,but i could probably get in 5 hours minimum to 10 hours MAXIMUM.
Im not looking to become a complete badass just looking to have confidence in myself to whoop somebody’s ass if they decide to attack me,and with a “fight training” background would give me more confidence knowing i could handle myself.
Cheers for all the reply’s
