If you do not fully understand the question, then respond instinctively.
Also if you are a fighter give your opinion on forms of striking. Can TKD/karate/kung fu practitioners have a fair chance against boxers/kickboxers/MT practitioners? Are these arts all on par with each other generally in effectiveness? What are your experiences with such things?
I also would like to hear IronMan's opinion on this subject. Sorry to single you out but you are one of if not the most knowledgeable people on this forum.
in real life id say boxing as unfashionable as it may sound, it lends itself best to quick effective ambush, connecting the most efficient form of attack ''punch'' with the most efficient target..''chin''.
this is not the whole answer, but within the narrow context of what usually counts as real life, it is the best one.
