I hope this isn't taking the wrong way, i know there are rules against asking things like "i get beat up at high school, what can I learn to beat them up". I havent been in high school for a LONG time lol.

this is not one of those post. I just wanted the opinions on this forum on a question.

what do you think are the most useful or proficient styles in a street/bar fight ... where there are no rules and no boundries.

To not be in the bar in the first place.

The one you know and can apply best.

Actually not really kidding---some hypothetical "best" style does you little good if your no good WITH IT--or if your get caught off guard.

Besides, if your really in a "no rules and no bounderies" kinda of thing---then I would hope that you can get to your opponent before they can get to their firearm, knife or something they can use as a weapon.

This question keeps coming up in various forms but the answer is always the same, "it's the fighter, not the style".

You need to choose a style that suits you best thus allowing you to utilize the full range of techniques inherent in that system.

It's like finding your perfect occupation. It doesn't matter that being an entertainment agent sounds glamerous if you're not good w/ people & negotiation. But maybe you'd be a super auditor.

I'd say the best are those listed as individual topics on the main menu of this forum.

http://www.fightingarts.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/Cat/0/C/2

The list starts with Sword Arts and is followed by Judo/Ju Jitsu and finishes with Filipino/SE Asian Arts. If you pick from these you should be in good shape.

Ravaan -

It is less about the style and more about how the school in question trains. Look for a school that offers a lot of resistant drills and sparring in all ranges. This will be the fastest way to gain proficiency with fighting fundamentals.

Pointless for us to recommend a style that is not available in your area, anyway. Check around for yourself.

If your training for a bar fight, consider a style that doesnít use a lot of complicated technique. Chances are you will have a few brews in you and your coordination will be affected. Also, bars are generally crowded, so pick a style that is close range. Donít worry too much about offense because the bouncer will be there within two swings anyway. For a bar fight, I would recommend boxing, krav, or a southern style of kung fu. Ground fighting would also be ok because help will be on its way soon. I would stay away from long-range styles or styles that emphasize high kicks, such as TKD or timing and coordination like Aikido.

A street fight is different. Chances are the bad guys will outnumber you, have weapons, and there will be no-one coming to your rescue. How to prepare? Pick a style to train in and good luck.

Before the fisticuffs commence, offer to buy a round for your assailant and his friends.

Congratulations on one of the most stupid suggestions I've heard in a long time.
