They cover the important stuff that these other sites seem to have left out such as watching your surroundings and staying alert. They talk about knowing when to walk away from a fight, when to go on the offensive and when to fall back on the defensive.

There are loads of resources online for how to fight and win. Read, watch and take it all in and then – and only then – you should seek out a gym to actually try to put your skills to use. You will want to actually test out your skills before challenging someone to fight. Know your limits.

    Nice list :). One thing I found very useful was expert village. I found on youtube, but also on their site some great Krav Maga (israeli martial art) videos, a very practical martial art, worth looking at.

    It's important to be critical of the material you're learning from.

    Many "self-defense" resources (particularly on YouTube) come from practitioners of sport-oriented martial arts. They incorporate moves and techniques that are valid in sport situations but have serious drawbacks in real-life use because they're too confined by the rules of the fighting style they've learned. The number one rule in a street fight is: "there are no rules."

    So it's crucial to temper what you learn with advice from people who really understand the distinction between the two.

      Who really trains with "no rules"?

      Combat sports like judo, muay thai, or greco-roman wreslting will make you a better fighter with more consistency and reliability than training t3h deadly. Unless the rules actually give you an advantage over the other guy, if you can beat their ass with rules, you can beat their ass even worse when those rules are lifted.

        You've missed my point. There are bad instructors out there who don't understand the difference between sport and street fighting situations. The skills and concepts you pick up in a formalized martial arts setting give you a definite advantage, but might need to change in a street situation. The goal is to escape... alive... even if that means doing something your sport would consider dishonorable like eye-gouging and biting.

        For example, I came across a BJJ video demonstrating a hip toss to a crossing arm bar. In the video, the instructor tells the audience it's a good self-defense technique.

        Except it's not. Because:

        1. While the hip throw is fine, the crossing arm bar sacrificed a good defensible position for a poor one that leaves you open to multiple attackers or your assailant should you botch the arm bar.

        2. On top of that, the arm bar was performed using the sport technique which calls for you to cross a leg over the opponent's head. But guess what, if it's a street fight, there are no rules. There's no penalty if your opponent bites your leg, but now you've gotten hurt.

        3. Finally, if you pull off the arm bar and take it to the point of breaking the elbow, a drunken or drugged up attacker might not even notice the pain.

        So by understanding that the lack of rules can change the value of techniques you learn is important.

        It also plays a role in understanding the pros and cons of a martial art. There are no wrist-locks or striking in Judo. There's no ground fighting in Tae Kwon Do or Wing Chun. There are no weapons used in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. But the absence of rules means any of those situations can arise in a street fight.

        So while you can't train with "no rules," you can study what impact a lack of rules has on a fight and be prepared for it.

    I have a tip. go get in a real fight.
    You will NEVER learn how to fight from reading.
    Experience is the best way to go.

    Heh yeah. Very different from your usual posts but still handy all the same. Sometimes words just won't solve conflicts and you gotta get rough.
