Well, I disagree that all styles are equal, but I'm not going to spend time going around trashing those that I don't think are that great [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/wink.gif[/IMG] I think how effective a style/system is in a fight depends on a combination of things...
1.The style itself
2.The individual student(talent, intent, and work ethic)
3.The teacher(what training methods, techniques, and strategies he teaches you)
