Many different fighting styles have their merits. In hand to hand combat you are fighting for your life. Much of the hard training is forgotten when
the adrenaline kicks in. If the fight is not over within the first few seconds, it will normally go to ground and grappling takes over.
The base line is basically, who gets the first good strike or who can adapt the fastest, utilising what is available to use as a weapon. There are no
rules, no styles no sport. There is only a winner and a loser. Do whatever you need to do to be the one that walks away. Punch, bite, claw, scrape,
stab, bludgeon. It matters not. If you have some level of expertise, all the better, if not, remember that you are fighting for your life. Nothing
For my tupence, watch the Philipino SF and their knife fighting techniques.
