Remember i was just talking about entertainment value - Not practical value for confrontational fightting for disputes
or self defense.
Both full contact Karate [modern sport version] and kick boxing are almost always action packed and interesting
Yes, I have also seen some really good MMA fights - but there are just too many dull ones for my taste.
But since you all seem interested in real fighting for disputes and self defense - this may interest you.
Mnay years ago I read a book with the title 'Street Fighting of the World' [not sure if that was the exact title]
The book was written by a rich heir to a fortune who just happened to be fascinated with street fighting which was very
popular back then [1950s - 60s]. There were famous street fighters all over the World and they could be found and were
often willing to engage in fights - But often you had to sign a disclaimer first so they would not be responsible if you
Two interesting fighters in the book I will never forget:
1. He had mastered the 'chin' - supposedly there is a spot on the chin that if you hit it right - your opponent is out!
and he was very effective in using it to win fights.
2. And the most unusual in the book was 'Bad Breath' - He had mastered a herbal fomula that he eat and if
you confronted him you were finished - All he had to do is breath on you and you were finished - His breath was
so bad that just one breath on you and you got sick, instantly!
Otherwise the book had many other street fighters but most were more tradigional [knife fighters, etc.]
If you really like confrontational street fighting get a copy and read it [might be tough to find as it is probably out of print] - but worth
