What martial art really works in the real world, as opposed to stylish stuff shown in the movies?
 Quoting: EarthSkies


1. Concealed carry
2. A knife.
3. Run
4. Martial Arts

Coming from a martial artist that studied various disciplines for close to 20 years, I wholly endorse this series of recommendations.
Within the surreal depths of "reality" lies the truth.

Re: If you were being attacked in the street, what martial art would be the most useful to know?
when i practiced Pencak Silat, we would have fighters from every style in to spar. In every case, it broke down to KICK BOXING !!!! As soon as somebody got hit, their technique was out the door and they were kick boxing. Yes, kicking is highly effective in the street, but you cant use spinning high kicks. What you should do is NOT JOIN A CLUB as most of them are for sport, not killing. Take up kick boxing and enhance it with some techinque from Krav Maga, Systema and some other no bs stuff. Forget any style and just practice highly effective moves from any source you see; get a friend to go along and learn too.

I have trained in Aikido, jujitsu, TKD and Krav Maga. Instructed in TKD and Krav.

If I could only have one of those arts, in would be Krav.

They all have strengths and weaknesses, but Krav is best overall for street defense, IMO.

Spot on. Street kicks are below the waist. High kicks are dangerous, as you never know when an opponent knows how to catch kicks, and land you flat on your back.

That's the thing with pepper spray and guns. If you attacker is within 20 feet of you, you will not have time to produce the gun/spray and use it.

I agree with conceal carry. I carry all the time, but also understand the gun is of no use in some situations.

Best approach is avoid. It takes a bigger pair of balls to walk away, than to stand there, ego bound, and fight.

Krav Maga. I have studied martial arts for over 30 years. I have studied Kung Fu, Tang Su Do, Tae Kwon Do, Krav Maga, and Aikido. However, the best and most practical system I have studied for pure self-defense is Krav Maga.

Re: If you were being attacked in the street, what martial art would be the most useful to know?
Boxing.
And not just “boxing”.
Mike Tyson Boxing.
 Quoting: Steamer


All street fights end up on the ground in less than 10 seconds. I boxed competitively for 6 years. Got in at least 10 fist fights before I graduated HS. Went to a mixed school. Boxing is pretty much worthless in a real fight.

Wrestling is probably one of the most important skills you’ll need in a real fight. But it should be combined with skills from other techniques.

It is why Krav Maga is superior. It teaches you last resort methods. My qualifying test in Krav had 3 instructors attack me with knives. I had to take their weapons and deliver death blows to each of them and do it in about 3 seconds.

If you have no formal fight experience then Krav Maga will take awhile to really button down. Most dudes in my Krav class already had black belts. Krav is the perfect compliment to an already accomplished fighter. But it’s still good for the wanna be.

Another good method is Filipino Stick Fighting with Open Hand Aspect. You’ve prolly seen this method in the Jason borne movies. I took some private lessons from the guy who choreographed the fight scenes in that movie. At the time he was the only instructor in the US and just happened to live in my home town of Traverde City.

In the very end though, if you aren’t naturally a vicious fighter, then no skill will save you. Since I was a kid, time would slow down for me in a fight. Or I’d see everything in slow motion while the speed of my mind remained quick. I remember my first fight and thinking this is too easy. I could see my opponent’s punch coming in slow motion and had time to consider different moves I might want to do. It was this natural ability that propelled me into competitive fighting from early on in my childhood.

In HS I’d get in fights with the blacks and basically just toy with them as I chopped their face up like wet meat.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75781610


That’s not my experience. Never been in or seen a fight yet that ended up on the ground in any significant way. The fucker that punches mostest and fastest and connects the best wins. A gatling gun barrage of fists will drop all the dojo queens all day long. Half the time the ‘trained’ guy in better shape will get scared/ponder legal consequences after his second punch and start to immediately stop fighting and paralyze himself with fear while the pot bellied drunkard pounds away like a windmill and wins. Also, different ethnic groups just wildly throw haymakers and miss. Very inneffective.
Go watch liveleak and worldstar hiphop if you want to see the type of opponent you will ACTUALLY fight.

Krav Maga.
 Quoting: jailarson


^^This^^

Krav Maga is hands down the most lethal and effective form of fighting.

It combines the most lethal moves from ALL fighting styles.

I’ve studied fighting techniques for over 30 years. I boxed for years. Took 4 different types of martial arts. None of them came close to Krav Maga. One year of Krav made me a better fighter than 30 years of other fighting techniques.

But you should also carry a gun. It’s your duty.

The most lethal technique is my Sig Sauer Ultra .45.
It's the undefeated, reigning world champion.
