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.

Krav Maga is worthless in a real fight.

Teaches men to fight like girls with scratching and kicking.

Ehh I started out in krav maga and quickly moved into muay thai then finally found my home in plain old boxing. Got a really good personal boxing coach with a documented pro record of 20 something fights and an amateur record of 100 plus. gave it my all for several years. Krav maga was just mediocre and there was way too much to work on to become great at any one thing and the sparring was pretty lame. IF you are not doing hard sparring or taking actual fights competitively All the technique, bag work/fitness wont do you a whole lot. Its a completely differnet animal trying to beat on a person that doesnt want to get beat on and is determined to hurt you. Going to have to give a few brain cells in order to get good at this stuff unfortunately.

Re: If you were being attacked in the street, what martial art would be the most useful to know?
I wasted around 27 years training in martial arts. None of them really work irl, it’s just that cool choreography on the silver screen makes it seem like it works.

All you need to master is a kick or punch to the nuts, and keep distance where possible. In other words, if you’re out of range, you can’t be hit. When / they rush to attack you, you counter strike to the balls, then immediately back off. But even then there’s no guarantee you won’t get hit.

While I’ve been a life long Bruce Lee historian, and believe he had some good ideas, I also believe he was a hype job and was nowhere near as good irl. That’s coming from someone whose studied the man. Nd his philosophy since 1991.

Don’t waste time nor money on traditional martial arts, OP.

P.S. OP, so many people have been brainwashed - via Hollywood - into believing this horseshit works. They see some movie about some wise, old oriental master teaching his unenlightened, western disciple all of the ancient fighting secrets, which then turn him into the ultimate killing machine. I think it was the karate kid that spawned this myth or perhaps drunken master. Who knows? Who cares? It’s all make believe horseshit that never worked for anyone. Watch any martial arts tournament / fight, and see how much of a sloppy mess it always turns out to be. If they look that shit in the ring, then imagine on the street and against multiple opponents?

Jeet Kune Do. Kind of a stand up, dirty boxing style, street fighting. Coupled with a grapple and takedown syllabus. Bjj or Judo.

Street fight is street fight, grab a couple good sized rocks, hit em, knock em down, shove a rock in their mouth and pound their head on the cement. Grab a metal rod, anything and hit, jab, and beat. It won't be pretty, but street fights aren't. Once you got the adrenaline flowing, those kicks don't feel anything. A female wearing white boots grabbed me by the hair and threw me on the ground and started kicking me. A couple of minutes later She's begging off with a broken bleeding nose, and I have white shoe polish on my face, never felt it, but she was begging off bleeding.....aim to maime, was what my brother taught me. Shove that nose,
Jab in the chest, in the center, poke your fingers in their eyes, grab and squeeze their.......lol. tomato

Wrestling and Boxing is the best combo, Both keep you on your feet and strengthen your core and balance to do so.

Boxing gives you ko power and ability to fight multiple people at once without having to kick which kicking opens you to being taken down.

Wrestling helps keep you on your feet and the ability to get back up in case taken down.

Trying to kick in a street fight can be the end of you.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 72951825


Replace boxing with kickboxing. You will need those kicks.
Boxers weak point is almost always their ground game (you got it covered with the wrestling) is their inability to check a kick.
Also kicks can be very useful in a street fight, especially if you go for knees and balls.

You're not giving kicks even nearly enough credit. A skilled footworker can destroy a straight boxer.

Sure be in trouble if that wrestler gets hold of him though. But that's still not a simple task. The wrestler has to either push through superior range and power or sit and wait for a catch.

Surely, no-one is going to suggest 540 kicks in the pub, but a single front kick to the diaphragm or solar plexus area fucking hurts.

I whole-heartedly support the use of stop-kicks too, despite their being labelled inefficient and silly.

Re: If you were being attacked in the street, what martial art would be the most useful to know?
The unasked question is how a 75 year old should get started and train with what(other than a pistol)? Older people have almost no adrenaline and their reactions are slow. Yes, training will speed reactions, but not the adrenaline. There needs to be a method that's effective in gun free zones, since thugs can be anywhere.

It's possible to maintain some muscle and bone strength, but the reaction time and anger/adrenaline fugue state are the missing links.
