anyway krav wont make you an mma champ but it is a great form of self defense.

Yeah, I know. I was watching some videos when I was studying for this fight and saw how it can be used. There is a reason Israel has kicked anyone's a** who has tried to conquer them since they've become a nation again!

Yeah, it's called guns and American weapons technology. I highly doubt they've done it by kicking arabs in the nuts one at a time.

Boxing because all street fights start with punching some form of Wrestling because when the flurry doesn't work they tend to tackle you and i think that should do you.

great choices. Wrestling is great (in fact my base style) the only problem is you don't know how to fight off your back. Krav will teach you some basic sweeps kicks off your back what to do if someone has mounted you how to move off your back and how to get up without exposing yourself.

one thing that krav also does well (or at least the instructors at my guy do) is it also makes you think past the fight. In your fighting stance they teach you to keep your guard up but your hands open instead of a fist and make a fist just right before you punch. If your hands are open it doesn't make you look like the aggressor (may even look submissive) as apposed to when your hands are clinched in fists. this could make a difference if it gets to the point where the police shows up and ask witness what happened and if it was self defense or just a fight.

YouTube - jkd

I was just interested to know which u thought was better for real life situations, JKD or a mixture of boxing, BJJ etc etc.

Also why is it that JKD has never been sucessful in something like UFC or pride? Are the moves shown in the video not going to work in real life situations?

Many thanks all!
I don't know if someone has already said this or not being that I did not take the time to read through most of the replies on this forum haha. But Jeet Kune Do embodies formlessness. Meaning it is whatever style when it needs to be that style. So, in theory, yes it could work in the cage. Being that it is an open style developed mainly for self-defense, then it could be right up there for what you are looking for. If it were to work in a cage it would have to be adapted for that sort of competition, as it is not generally a competitive style. I train Kajukenbo (karate, jujitsu, judo, kenpo, kung fu) and Wing Chun with some freestyle grappling (which is what we would be considered I guess, being that it's just a mixture of all sorts of grappling styles). I have trained in Jeet Kune Do as well. My dad actually knows quite a bit about it (he owns our martial arts school and has been training/fighting for over 35 years now). But you know, it's really all up to you and what you feel would be best for self-defense. My advice would be to test the waters with multiple styles and see which you feel suits you best. Everything is effective, it just depends on the user :-)

Oh and about your question about the moves not working in real life situations... Well put it this way. No matter how you train a move or how good you get at working those moves, a real situation will never allow for it to go exactly like your training. But yes, most of those moves if applied with full force and proper technique will devastate a person.
