If its a joke then don't reply. He was asking for pointers and we're giving them. Simple.

I get what you mean that you can't study it of course, but the guy just needs a few tips. Help a brotha out from getting a beat down

It depends on you as a fighter. If you like to swing then I have a few very specific pointers:

Keep your chin down.

Keep you hands up.

Throw jabs to set up big punches.

Don't underestimate the body shot.

If you get the chance, throw a knee.

Me I'm a grappler, so in a street fight I have a few very simple rules:

I like working from my back, but if we're on cement, that's a bad idea.

Use quick, short elbows, because if you cut him open he'll tap quickly.

Use basic and effective submissions, don't be over-complex, because it's almost never necessary.

Best of luck with it.

How to win a street fight... or more importantly, how not to lose...
If you are truley talking about a fight on the street and outside of an organized even then you need to more than just boxing tips, you need to take a step back and re-asses your priorities.

How to not lose a street fight in one easy step: Don't go.
So what if you get "called out?" Try "No thank you very much, oh and here is this dandy restraining order."

Non-self defence violence outside of the gym, dojo, cage, ring, or mat is retarded. It's a quck way to get hurt, killed, or thrown in jail. Take it from someone from the "other side."
Last "Streetfight" I was involved in we picked up the target in the car and took him to a back road and handled business. That's how the world really works, none of these one-on-one niceties and so much for any kind of rules.

Get the cops, get mace, get a restraining order, get a shovel, just don't be dumb enough to get into a "streetfight."

^The kid's in high school. This isn't a kidnapping, brought out to the middle of nowhere deal. He also seems to know the other guy to some extent. A school fight is a school fight. Even if none of this materializes, which I too hope for, wouldn't it be nice that he at least has the peace of mind to know how to defend himself in the future?

I'm not glorifying the situation but sometimes you don'thave control of when sh*t is about to go down. You know what I mean?

ya, its better to be prepared then get jumped and get your ass kicked. I've been in fights where the guy doesn't give you a chance to say no. Like I said earlier. I got in a shouting match with this guy and it started getting out of hand. I said "Whatever" and started to walk away. As soon as I turned my back he clocked me. I turned around to flying fists. If I hadn't fought back he woulda hurt me. I managed to get the best of a scramble and I held him down by his throat and got him in the full mount. From here I could just pick my shots until he gave up. The point is that I coulda yelled "NO! I DON'T WANNA FIGHT!" But to him that would just mean he could beat me up with out me fighting back. He was determined to hurt me and my only option was to fight. I, unfortunatley, ended up paying some small medical expenses and a $250 fine.

So to avoid all this trouble try as hard as you can to keep yourself away from these kind of people. Even if you win you could loose (via legal penalties). But if you have to fight its better to know how.

How do you win in a street fight? Simple...

Don't get into one.

Call me old fashioned... Call me a worry wart... But I'd rather not waste my time putting up instructionals on a scenario too chaotic to predict, neither would I want to put the idea into some kids head that he'd be invincible "in 3 simple steps..."

This thread is a joke. No offense to the OP, but it's closed now too.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

I reopened the thread. Organju, you need to know that none of us are condoning street fighting. But like what was said above sometimes you cant help it. The kid doesnt wanna get his ass kicked and how little these "3 steps" may help they could help none the less. Self defense is neccesary. Thats why Im glad I've wrestled all my life. I take it you'e never been in a situation but if the kids gonna be in a fight thats out of his hands I'd rather him have somewhat an idea of what hes doin.

Okay...

But this isn't a self-defense thread, neither was it opened in the intents of being one. Truth of the matter is, the best method of "Self Defense" is not to get into a situation where you are knowingly putting yourself in danger. Now, I know real life doesn't always work like that, but I truthfully see the OP's situation going down like this:

The OP learns his "death touch/super move/fatality/etc..."
The OP confident about what's going to go down meets up with his opponent and 1 of 2 things happen:
1) He loses.
2) He wins.
But it probably won't end there. 'Cause this is usually what happens afterwards...
1a) He loses, and after he gets his ass kicked or KO'd, his opponent (maybe even his opponent's buddies) continues to kick his ass sending him to the hospital, or to the morgue.
2a) He wins (or begins to win), only to have his opponent A) Pull a weapon on him, B) Have his buddies jump in. Both of which will probably result in what ever else happens above.

Let's say he wins convincingly and get the hell out of there unscathed. Next time his opponent finds him in a moment he's looking for him he'll probably be armed or with his buddies in tow. Then what? Are we going to be answering questions on how to defend a knife-wielding assailant?

You see where I'm coming from now?

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

I second Onganju's sentiment.

The great thing about MMA is the street element is largely left out of it. Granted there is a time and place where you might HAVE to fight.

But most of the street fighting threads on this forum aren't about self-defense at all.

There's little relation to MMA as it is now, a sport, and street fighting.
