well, NOTHING guarantees anything in a street fight situation.

BJJ doesn't have striking, so even a BJJ black belt doesn't guarantee when we're on the ground and you catch on punch bare knuckle to the face you aren't going to freeze up and get hurt anyway.

I think BJJ has applications in the real world, heck I am a BJJ guy now,
but I think any sort of standing combat training has much more use in the real world.

I guess the best idea is to be well versed on the ground and the feet

The best thing to train is MMA period.


I think the two best skills to have in a street situation are some form of boxing and straight up JUDO.

If a guy tries to grab you or you can get a hold of him JUDO is the ****. Dump that dude right on his back and he won't get up especially on the concrete.

I think with street fights most of the population don't know how to properly throw a punch. Thats the good thing that my children know already how to properly block they're faces, how to throw a jab, cross, hook. Take me for example I know how to box, but if I were to land on the floor I would not have the necessary skills to get myself outta that dangerous situation unless it was just a wild fight and I started going haywire, but that doesnt mean the outcome would work in my favor. I think I would be in trouble, because after they finish they usually kick you in the head so I have seen.....

And conversely I don't wrestle and I always seem to be a great disadvantage when I spar. Either put him in wrestling or have him work on subs from his back.

That's ok no biggie. My favorite fighters are Marquez and Vitali Klitschko. I like watching friday night fights to see upcoming fighters. In the boxing world we seriously need some new blood!!

Boxing is rough to watch now. I used to love it, now, it does nothing for me. It's like going back to bluegill once you've had swordfish.

I would guess that wrestling would require the smallest financial investment to get started. This way if he isn't any good at it, you can try something else without having broken the bank.

But I was never into sports as a kid (PE was the only class I ever got an 'F' in), so what do I know?

How do you get an F in PE? I got a lot of "I"'s for incomplete but I always did good in PE. I took creative dance.I was gettin' my grove on in the 7th grade
