I got a look at this months "Fight Magazine", and they have an article about 'underrated' martial arts. On that list was included krav maga, which I will also agree doesn't get a lot of press. Most reputable street-based self defense programs taught to women, however, are based in krav maga.
Be nice, until it's time to not be nice.

Ahhh, the mythical "The Str33t", where we learn what arts are truly effective. 'Course, the most effective system is a good pair of eyes and a good sense of danger that lets you avoid most things.

Having said that, having gone through a really stupid phase where I put myself in dangerous places just to see... being bigger and obviously stronger than the other guy helps a lot. Coupled that with a calm attitude and most things can be dealt with without the need for physical confrontation.


I see commander nitro again...

If you purposely pull guard on a good wrestler or a person good at ground & pound you may have done the wrong thing. If you are intent on grabbing miss and catch a right hand that drops you, you may be in deep trouble. All in all Jujitsu techniques are just as competent as any fighting disclipine it how you apply them that is the X factor. Its not what you train in it how hard you train it. You make your Art it does not make you. JJ covers most ranges.

Totally agree.
Also, In my view traditional jujitsu mixed with techniques for self defense on the streets will be a lot more effective.
