it all depends on the fighters.

i say street fighter would win. because street fighting all about being as fast as possible and not hesitating to hit.

but. i have seen martial arts work on a street fighter. the street fighter hesistated and was too sure of himself. so, it's all about who hesistates first and who has the will to kill someone

let's face it. a martial artist(mainly upper body fighters) intent on killing you can't be stopped easily. especially if you're caught off guard, you hesitated, or you were just plainly surprised at how angry your opponent is.

high confidence isnt a bad thing.YOU have been watching too many movies to think that.


hahah are you insane!?...ive watched some mma fighting with guys who are "suposidly" highly skilled in that type of style and ive watched them just get obliterated by people who are freestyle or streetfighters...... you have to go with the street fighting its raw and unpredictable.

The only way your convincing me that muay thai would win if you somehow magically get Sagat from SF Alpha to walk through a door and challenge someone.

Okay, firstly, Black people were NOT bred to be slaves. You are VERY mistaken in this assumption. Black people were FORCED into slavery b/c of their physical superiority.

That said, karate, when used by a highly skilled martial artist would totally fucking kick ass. That is, until someone whips out a fucking gun.

I think street fighting. Unless you have attained a certain level in karate, you don't really get into matches often. In street fighting, the fighting itself is the practice already. I think you'll get more experience that way. And as paperback said, a real fight is different from just punching wood, as in basic karate. You'll definitely learn more tricks in street fighting. Karete just makes releasing force more efficient and practical.

Kyo, I don't really consider MMA street fighting. That is, if MMA means what I think it means (mixed martial arts). I think Chuck Norris (in his prime) might lose in such a case.

^ True. Chuck Norris doesn't have a stick. The bats and sticks would wipe the floor with most karate experts. Of course it still depends on the people he's up against.

^^ yes it does but that doesnt mean everyone does martial arts alot of people only have one style such as boxing or street fighting.
Either way your remark was pretty ridiculous
I do believe greenbane covered it quite well i must say.

It depends on the dojo your in and the instructors thats teaching during that day because for my dojo we mostly train techniques, kata, and sparring. Also, you can actually gain fighting experience by fighting with other members, as long as your up to it.

Bats and sticks are clumsy weapons of limited mobility and usage. The average person wouldn't use either in an effective manner making them more of a hindrance than an advantage against an experienced and trained fighter.

This thread is chuck full of 12-16 year olds or computer geeks discussing the outcome of something on pure speculation or very limited experience and observation.

kyo: i don't think the guys in the mma arena are your regular joes on the street (as seraph was referring to) so i'd still have to say i'd disagree w/ you, especially as i was referring to a martial arts expert (someone who actually devotes his life to martial arts not just some random kid who took some classes for a while).

^ I agree with that. I mean, who would have the confidence or will to fight against styles he's not familiar with.

But then again, confidence and skills are different things...

I'm not sure whether you're referring to me, but i have a brown belt in karate and i'm a second dan of taekwondo. My best friend studies arnis (a Filipino martial art that uses wooden sticks), and i have a hard time with him. Please take your false assumptions somewhere where you won't get hurt if you find out you're wrong.

Now back to the topic...
I got a question. Do you guys think it's faster to learn using repetitive training like in karate or by fighting real fights?
