I grew up in mainly bad places, and I've been mugged tons of times and
have yet to see one intellegent fighter. They come at you with rage but
little common sense, I used to wonder why? But now it makes sense to
me; why are they on the streets picking fights?
Limited thinking abillitys; So they use no strategy.
Drug habits; Bad health (may get tierd fast unless on meth)
Lack of discipline; So you Know they're not training seriously
Lack of positive out look; Get demoralized easly (unless on substances in
which case lack of reasoning ability will compensate for this)
When weapons are used they are rearly wielded with any skill, and
thugs mainly rely on the victim, being to scared to oppose them.
I feel sad for thies poor ppl who are mostly abused children who dont
know how to deal with there lives. At the same time no ones going to give
me brain damage through repeated blows.
One point I have to bring up is Ground fighting is for an arena not the
street! If you go to the ground you want up ASAP!
1.A side walk full of glass or just plain concrete is not comfterble to land
2.You don't want to get kicked in the head by friends of opponent either preasent, or on the way around the corner.
3.If some one ties you up on the ground your a sitting duck.
Ground fighting is an important skill, but think about it how many ppl in the UFC get off the ground at will or anytime soon?
the UFC has rules and only one opponent the street has no rules and almost always at least 2 opponents.
Oh and punching some one in the throat or solar plex, is more effective than the abillity to punch through a brick wall.
At least thats my 2cents.
Peace, be still!
