(usually if you hit them hard enough they won't be able to strike you back so you can continue your barrage after that.)


Uh...You've never been in a real fight then. The most effective form of fighting is actually the wrestling tactics. Those of us who have been in a lot of REAL fights know this. That's why most martial artists will lose against a brawler. We know how to effectively grab ahold. Keep your head low, go for the lower torso. Arms wide and move quick. Then again, those of us who are actually fighters don't fight for honor, we fight to win. I have no issues punching a guy in the nuts to have him expose his jaw or throat.

Jujitsu and Muay Thai are pretty much the only really popular martial arts that are useful in a street fight. The reasons behind that are because they are very aggressive or handle other aggressive fighters.


Actually when i fight if someone goes down low enough to of where my knee can reach their face, i usually go for it, i even use my elbows , but its not that i cant "brawl" its just i prefer to throw punches and end it in one or two blows.

I tend to kick a lot when I'm far back with a couple of low kicks aimed at the knee, keep it up until the opponent starts to block it with some feints of course, and then release a high kick. In close quarters, I make some jabs and straights. Maybe a few hooks and uppercuts too. Get even closer and I will grapple or throw the person into the ground and then, I wrestle, throw in a few slugs and finish it with a suplex

i fight only smaller opponents with shorter arms and wait until they are too exhausted from throwing punches to let them go carrying their own momentum into oncoming traffic or subway trains.

Well, not always, because it takes some distance for you to grab and hold onto the opponent. What's your suggestion on fighting brawlers if I'm a ranged fighter?


You need quick foot work. Never attempt to win with force. I'd probably suggest moving constantly, dodging the charge the best you can. Jump in after they lose that initial force from the charge and try and hit them in the jaw or throat from the side. If you hit someone hard enough at the right angle in the jaw or throat, they are down for the count.

An experienced brawler looks for that though. So if you think you have enough power behind your shots, step in when they charge with your shoulder down and feet planted firmly. This will weaken the charge and allow you to get a few sharp punches into the guy. If you manage to strike him anywhere decent, he'll stagger. If you make him stagger, your ranged shots will probably bring the guy down for the count.

so true so true!



YET



though wrestling tactics and cheap shots are very effective in fights, it is obvious that you are completely vulnerable to any attack when in stances such as "tackle stance" or "parry stance". and no im not quoting tekken -_-"
anyway...
i kno that you're completely right about muay thai and jujitsu, but learning how to control power is obvious in fighting. sure, as you said you fight to win and not for honor and thats a good code to go by, but, you can obviously win with strike skills as well mate. some martial arts are even completely based on reversing wrestling tactics, not just jujitsu!

Yeah, that's pretty much what I do. I use their body's momentum when they're charging at me to add power to my kick or punch.

I think it's much more easier to become an experienced brawler, right?

I'd have to say a boxer beats untrained wrestling tactics any day. But then again I'm in the brawler category and I've never lost so I can't really say much for the martial artists.

I'm not suggesting half nelsons. I am suggesting wrestling tactics in the sense of always being on top of the guy by constantly repositioning yourself. Wrestling allows for you to bring them down and control the fight from above. It reduces the damage they can deal by quite abit and allows for you to use the room you control to bring in elbows, knees, and headbutts.

Technique and speed from experience are different from technique and speed from actual fights. Thats why I am saying against basic martial arts you pay 500 bucks a year for at a suburban dojo, a brawler wins.

Easier? Hell no. I had to lose quite a few fights and take some serious hits to gain all the experience I have. Most of my experience comes from concerts though and the crowd some of my friends hang out with. Normally I am relatively reserved but at a metal or punk show, people like to be asshats and start fights for no reasons. Occasionally I run across people who practice like Tae Kwon Do or something similar and won a few fights against less seasoned fighters. Mostly though I am just trying to stop some skinhead who is controlling the mosh pits with brute force from his size, not necessarily fighting skill.
