Hah, yeah - that's just about the only one I can recommend :P Attacking the groin is way underrated, so is punching the body - nobody expects it

Though this thread is silly, learning a martial art for revenge kinda defeats the whole point of it :/

I bet many get into Martial arts to revenge something or simple get rid of the bullies, BUT once there they learn the TRUE ways of life, its too late for anything else, they're hooked already

The only problem is when u get to know a bad teacher, so many 'pitbull gyms' out there

Do like Drillbit Taylor and hire a bum to be your bodyguard. Or just by a pistol and tuck it in your pants and when they roll up on you, lift up your shirt and ask "what's the problem?".

They teach us to kick in self defense class all the time so idk where some peeps get there training. Most of the kicks are to the groin but we have a few that are leg kicks, start in a right lead, hands upwaving like you don't want a issue, spike the eyes, kick the groin with the left leg stepping down not back right x, left hook,right bolo Bobbing and weaving back, left jab, right leg kick, back step left leg kick, right kick to the groin, rinse and repeat.

This is called boxer threat and it works we've had several ppl use this effectively. One dude came in learned it his first night at the dojo and had to use it the next day.

Muay Thai. It'll give you everything boxing does, plus the ability to put a serious hurting on someone in close quarters with knees and elbows.

That depends how good the boxing coach is. Most of the time a pure boxing gym will get you hands that a muay thai gym couldnt even come close to giving.

Well depends on the Muay Thai coach too... most modern MT teachers have absorbed western boxing in its entirety, so you have the full jab/cross/hook/uppercut/overhand and defense arsenal from Boxing built in to MT, but with a modified stance etc. to account for kicks and knees.

If you're talking traditional MT that has weak hands and emphasizes knees and elbows over all else, then yes, but modern MT already has boxing built in IMO.

The rest of the stuff a pure boxing coach will give you is for sport purposes anyway and not much use in a street fight. For example full bobbing and weaving, peek-a-boo type defense, clinching without offense etc. is suicide without gloves or rules.

Yeah you are right on the coach part.

That might be true but just because they absorbed it doesnt mean they are as good as a boxing coach is. Its like MMA guys. Most those guys can throw everything a boxer can throw but very few of them have hands that can keep up with a proffesional boxers. Its unlikely that your hands are going to be as good at a Muay Thai gym as they are at a pure Boxing gym. It just comes down to the boxing gym having focused on it alot longer and the Muay Thai coach having less time to focus on pure boxing.
