fighting tips, techniques, self-defence






It seems there is an increased interest in learning about fighting on the street. I base that on the number of emails we get on the subject.

Street fighting for the purpose of learning how to pick fights or to gang fight is not our interest. So when I get these type of emails I never even respond. Some, however, are really interested in self defense or responding to a street attack or fight.

Learning fighting techniques for the street can be a diverse issue. Winning on the Street is an interesting example. The ads for that product either get rave reviews or hate letters. Most of these come from martial artists who believe their martial arts techniques will always work in a street confrontation.

Most of us have heard of black belts fighting someone on the street and getting their butt kicked. This is sometimes due to their false security that their dojo fighting techniques will really work in real self defense.

Most martial artists are not familiar with adrenal stress conditioning. They have never trained under duress so when a real fighting situation occurs they are shocked to find they cannot access their multi-step, fine motor coordination techniques. Read more about street fighting.
