My Fight Story, please give feedback.
 
ok so i got into a fight, before i was ever into mma.
me, being a street fighter, threw flurries of hooks,
didn't guard my face, had a bad stance, didnt jab at all.

and my opponent, a well trained boxer, knew how to counter them, by beating my hooks with a quicker jab.

he is skinnier than me, but has longer reach.
i am stronger but he was just better trained.

after he tagged me to the point where i was dazed,
i changed my gameplan instead of rushing in with hooks i waited, when he stepped in with his jab id step back and throw a hook when he entered my area.

now i know not to throw hooks, without setting it up.

dont get me wrong, although i was untrained, i grew up with the street fighter mentality, never back down, win lose or draw.

now that im in MMA training which i attend twice a week, i train hard everytime, trying to improve so next time if i fight him again, ill turn the tables on him

ever since that fight, ive been training my kicks, noticing how low kicks are so very effective against boxers.


what other things should i train on to defeat this boxer.
and what should i watch out for.

his strengths are, speed, strength, and reach.

i kno im stronger, but i kno not to swing wildly now, and use kicks help close the gap.

my game plan is to low kick him, then set him up with a fake kick punch to the face.

my fellow fighters, i really appreciate those whove read this, and please give me your feeedback, is will me greatly appreciated and absorbed like a sponge in water.

How do your ground games compare? If you want an easy win just take him down.. learn some BJJ and you will become humble and less violent. You will learn to avoid any situations like this in the first place. TOSS THAT EGO!!

if you can ;)

by the way who is stronger you have a typo :)

I have a rather odd history in marital arts so its hard for me to tell you what to do. work on your foot work for one. if he is a boxer the last thing you want to do is trade punches with him. Most street fighter arn't conditioned to take a leg kick a good leg kick does allot of damage. Also learn to throw and good front kick and push kick as the reach of your legs are better than the reach of his arms. if you keep a guy at bay long enough often times they will get frustrated and rush in or throw a big uncontrolled punch making it easy for you to counter. Dont fall in to too much of a patter though.

However this is easy for me to say because i took tai chi and Ba Gua where id developed a stance and foot work that a majority of fighters would not know how to react to. Also I took TKD and Karate where I have developed a strong front kick.

I dont recommend this for you but i know what I would do is throw some kicks with my left leg to get him watching it then i would raise my leg like I was going to kick but then come around with a right spinning back kick or spinning side kick. it would take allot of training for you to be able to do this effectively though.

Fighting in the street is the worse possible thing you can do.....Doesn't the gym you train at preach that to you?

ASTRO1D 02-13-2010 11:38 PM

hey, but sometimes its inevitable

xbrokenshieldx 02-14-2010 12:06 AM

Two things:

1. Fighting in the streets is extremely immature and useless.

2. Have you worked on any grappling techniques (i.e. wrestling, judo, jui jitzu)?

I think personally after training for a year and a half in muay thai and im on 5 years of boxing now i believe, i would walk away from a street fight even if i had my pride hurt over it. Its just never worth it. Most street fight situations when i was younger you usually end up stopping or winning becuase you or your opponent gas out in seconds. That would never happen to me now, and its very possible that you could seriously injure someone. But for some real advice...

Just kick the crap out of him. Literally, with kicks. Foot jabs, leg kicks, body kicks. You'll eventually frustrate him into becoming wreckless and then youll be able to punch him much easier. then continue with kicks!

Wait this is on the street?

Ok if you meet this guy again don't even think about fighting him fair. Are you nuts? Fair fights are for gyms and friends. If you don't have a weapon with you, find one. This includes anything long hard that you can swing, rocks, anything you could reasonably throw to inflict damage. I guarantee he can't dodge your punches with some dirt/sand/w.e in his eyes. If none of those are viable, you should be going for the balls. People severely underestimate a hard kick to the groin. If you can get a hold of him, tackle him, trip him, get him to the ground you can start gouging his eyes. Or if you can get him on the ground with you standing, soccer kicks and stomps are extremely effective. And hey, he goes to get up don't be afraid to throw in a couple knees.

^^^Agree. Use thrust kicks, snap kicks to keep him at a distance and tire him out, then dip because once he's gassed he's not a threat to your safety and the fight no longer has a point. That's the best strategy for self-defense.

As a rule street fighting is a no no. No self-respecting martial artist fights outside of the ring/cage. Self-defense or defense of someone who can't defend himself is the only reason. Revenge, or a grudge, is a pitiful reason to fight.

What kind of advice is that? Gouge out his eyes!? What the hell! Knock him down, quickly incapacitate him, and run the hell away. That is what you do in a street fight. Anything else is conjecture and honestly, a person willing to gouge out a man's eyes when its not completely and utterly necessary is not a man I want to know, because I can't respect him.
