I'm sorry I find the "street fighter" comment laughable no disrespect but in any martial art/boxing/grappling type of community there is, go call yourself a "street fighter" and you'll have people rolling themselves on the ground laughing at you
As for the throat punch that slides well unless you fight people that have a thing for rubbing themselves with vaseline I don't know how you can't lend a good counter with a jab or direct in the throat without having 100% accuracy
Had you have any real fighting experience you'd know that in such event your in defensive position and while you don't have to attack you have plenty of time to think
I'm in Canada so the laws are different
The only thing aikido is do for in such situation is NOTHING

Pradal Serey and Muay Thai are both competitive martial arts. They are not systems of war. Pradal Setey does not allow for strikes to the back or genitals, it also prohibits striking an oponent on the ground. Both are dangerous and effective if used right. However they are designed to be used within certain guidlines to achieve a win in a sporting event. That is part of why you dislike Aikido.
Bokator and Sambo are both great martial arts. They are based directly on the true intent of war. However, it is almost impossible to find a suitable trainer in most parts of America. Most Americans have easy access to Judo, Jui-Jitsu, Karate (in some form), Taekwondo, and either boxing or kick boxing. The problem is finding a place that is not a "Mcdojo."
What ever man your absolutely right I have no fighting experience in the real word thats why I worked 6 years in the past as bouncer in a club owned by hells angels... You sure would love to see the dude I had to have a bout with to land the job... His nickname's Bear... wanna talk sweaty??? try fighting people on meth they don't feel sh!t... they are VERY mad and sweat like pigs... and never missed the good old throat punch... when the guy's 6inch taller than you and at least 140lb you have to resort to quick and dirty yet I never had to use "lethal" force... I wonder why... I must of not learn the right stuff then...
So I guess now I'll have to go learn how to do moonkicks and hadoken fireballs to know how to fight...
BTW... pradal serrey is an art of war it was derived from bokator than later on its rumored the thai's stole pradal serrey and created muay boran which is also an art of war... later on muay boran was watered down into muay thai as a sport which is still more than you need to kill someone the original bare knuckle muay thai was a complete system they only had removed the most "deadly" stuff from boran for the sport purpose but got watered down to today's muay thai with the years... as a matter of fact this is why they started to use hand wrapping hundreds of years ago because bare knuckle had too many deaths and injuries...

I have a question for some of you fighters... off topic slightly
I used to be a hell of a gymnast - double back flips, triple twisting layouts, etc so I always know where I am in the air or tumbling around. I'm a good wrestler too.
Would grappling and tumbling, a kick upward while rolling on the ground, and stuff like that fly at all in a street fight? Or would I likely just get pounced on and pummeled like the girl in McDonalds?
I can get out of holds, but wondering how easy it is to effectively hit a person who's moving in really unexpected ways?
