I cant say I agree with this
Just because HE isnt learning anything doesnt mean that its the art's fault for not teaching him. A student has to learn for himself with guidance of an instructor, master, wut have you. Its definitely not the Martial Arts' fault, if anything (not saying it is) it could be the teachers's lack of in depth training and teaching.

I mean if he goes to another art and doesnt learn anything there, then what? martial arts doesnt teach him anything?? I seriously doubt that. And a big part of being a student I would say is THINKING, and its not exactly something easy to do. Look at a technique, observe the motion, observe the strengths needed and your put it together to see what this technique is really capable of. Kinda like wax-on wax-off, theres a meaning behind your techniques and movements...can you find them??

.... To quote Marc "Animal" MacYoung, infamous streetfighter turned self-defense guru "And to tell you the truth, in order to find yourself in a 'streetfight' you have to be somewhat of an [censored]. You may want to believe otherwise, but there is a simple raw truth....there ain't no such thing as "a good guy" in a streetfight."

Wow. I don't know about that.

Any kind of full contact sparring will make you a better street fighter. Take two fighters- Fighter A has been in 5 street fights, one on one, no rules, and is untrained. Fighter B has been in 5 fights, one on one no rules, and has done 1 year of hard regular tgraining in Choy lee fut kung fu., with regular full contact sparring with protective gear and rules.
In a fight, fighter B will most likey win.

just train harder, look and see how your techniques can be used..and yea the important thing is to spar alot more and alot harder.

When you just train for a good amount time and then you start to spar you get to see how much strength and speed you've developed...or you can see the more advanced guy and see how fast and strong hes become to motivate you some more

hard training + sparring is directly proportional to your survival on the street
increase in (training + sparring) = increase in (survival)
