Who in here trains taekwondo or any other martial art as an effective fighting stlye for the street?

How do your train it? What are the exercises or training methods you use?


I personaly dont train any of my arts as fighting stlyes, but i am learning how to street fight and i incorperate the stlyes techniques and theories into my fighting stlye.



btw- i currently and regularly train in taekwondo, tai chi, and jeet kune do. I know other arts, but these r the ones i focus on...peace over war

taekwondo(pretty much you can't kick if the enemy is too close) judo (you can't grab on to him if he's beating you up)
and pretty much bored to think of more . . .

if the enemy is too close to kick...then punch or knee...head butt even...if u cant grab a moving opponenet, beat him down till he stops moving...then throw him...


restrictions on certain arts is not a justifiable way to tell the combat effectiveness of a martial art...most martial arts have restrictions...and those that dont r generally mixed/hybrid martial arts....in a real fight restrictions r removed from combat...u might be trained to kick pretty well, but that doesnt mean u cant throw a punch...

this whole topic focuses on trained martial arts for combat purposes, and how that training is done...
and back in acient times, all martial arts were used as effective combat arts by the military of thier respective countries. So in a sense all martial arts has/had some kind of combative purpose, all i want to know is who still trains in those purposes and how.peace over war

Honestly, they have a pretty crappy instructor. I had to teach them to stretch before class, because the instructor never did. They are learning Tae Kwon Do and are almost danbo (hope I spelled that right) belts, but I don't believe that they could protect themselves with it if they were in the situation.

i don't see how it would work in a real situation. most fights start out with both fighters about 4 inches away from eachother, right in each others faces. if you can pull off a kick at 4 inches away, then i think it could be very effective.....otherwise Muay Thai or Krav will reign

Of course any trained martial artist can probably beat an untrained fighter but there does seem to be a dominant strategy in fighting. Simpler movements are faster and more efficient. Thus, mma or kickboxing is probably more likely to win in a fight. The basics in fighting are takedowns, locks, power, speed and endurance. If your body type is too small for takedowns, you'll need to focus more on speed/power. I'd say the dominant martial art is probably kickboxing. It's the basics of boxing and kicking, how can you lose? Oh yeah and you are not going to use a 360 tornado kick with 3 second air time in a fight... It shows discipline sure but that won't necessarily win a fight.

Who needs to spend money for tae kwon do lessons? If you watch enough anime, you should know that all you need to do in a fight is scream as loudly as you can and thrust out your hands while keeping them shaped as if you were holding a ball
