Hi Guys, Been a While.
Dirty fighting versus the trained athlete. A classic discussion. While I lean towards the direction of the trained fighter I must say something for the less crude but effective techniques out there.
There are som things out there that do work and require no real training. A punch or kick to the groin or banging an oponents head off the concrete repeatedly seem to work wonders
. With that said its not a bread and butter technique to base a strategy around, like a jab for example.
I think the objective for either style of fighter would be to integrate a little more of the other way of doing things. I think any martial artist should have a rough side to him, and should be prepared for these types of attacks and I think that anyone out there relying simply on these types of attacks would do himself a servic by visiting the local boxing gym or wrestling hall if he wants to survive a real encounter with a real fighter. Thanks, and glad to be back
