throws some powerful punches…great technique

@DrummerInTheCity1091 Boxers train to do quick striking and to knock the person out as quickly as possible. Jui jitsu is a lot of takedowns and in a real fight… you do NOT want to get on the ground. People will get involved and stand over you kicking the shit out of you. I’m sure any martial arts is adequate to handle a fight situation but all im saying is, boxing’s simplistic and direct style would most likely work best.

When you talk about being in a street fight, you have no idea whats could happen. Where-as in a boxing match u know the opponent wont bring out a knife or run towards you to take you down. So when your in a street fight, you want to stop the opponent in there track as fast as possible. I’m 16 years old and have done judo for 8 years, mainly i teach myself how to fight…

@wasasa666 whereas karate is two hits, me hitting you and you hitting the floor. make sure you read my above comment first.


DrummerInTheCity1091 March 10, 2011 at 7:12 pm

When i say mma i dont mean ufc faggot style swinging like there is no tomorrow. I mean a combined style of boxing and jiu juitsu. there is no way to tell what situation you will be in and no martial art works for everything, but i think something like karate which has emphasis on striking and is a self defence art rather than a combat art would be most useful in a self-defence situation. boxing is designed to be used in a long situation where many punches are thrown


wasasa666 March 10, 2011 at 7:42 pm

@DrummerInTheCity1091 Not really, when people start MMA, they lose the style of striking as boxing. If you watch an MMA fight their striking is nothing like a boxers. If you were to put a boxer against an MMA fighter in a boxing match they wouldnt compare. The fact is the fight would probably be in close quarters and you wouldnt have a lot of room to work with. Considering takedowns and such are complicated processes and involves you going to the ground, boxing would be MUCH more useful.


DrummerInTheCity1091 March 10, 2011 at 8:29 pm

@wasasa666 of course they are not comparable, they are two completely different styles of martial arts. however, if somebody tried to rob me on the street or attack me i would be much more comfortable if i was disciplined in something like karate or jiu juitsu rather than boxing. boxing on it’s own is really only effective against boxing, but if you mix up boxing and jiu juitsu you have a deadly combo.


wasasa666 March 10, 2011 at 8:39 pm

@DrummerInTheCity1091 I wouldn’t say it isnt applicable on the street at all. In fact it may be the most useful. A street fight isn’t a real fight. Whats going to count is the first hit. With a boxer you’ve got the speed strength and precision to end it very quickly. Then again boxing and other martial arts are different sports. Personally i’m both, i both a boxer and martial artist mostly a boxer. You cant really compare them in any situation.

is this guy a pro?


erosener93 March 10, 2011 at 10:07 pm

you dont have to know BJJ to beat a BJJ fighter. If a boxer simply trains himself in wrestling or something similar he can learn great take down defense and avoid the ground completely. If he does that he’ll have a huge advantage.

@fafey1983 lies


ilikeamp March 10, 2011 at 10:13 pm

i wish i had enough in my basement for my bag to move around like that.


fafey1983 March 10, 2011 at 10:43 pm

@DrummerInTheCity1091 i would have to go into detail on how i fought them but yea boxing is the way to gooo


DrummerInTheCity1091 March 10, 2011 at 11:26 pm

@fafey1983 I don’t believe that you KOd a guy in the first hit unless he was really shit, but I do agree with you that boxing is one of the most fun martial arts to practise, even though it is not applicable on the streets. Also the muai thai fighter must have been shit or stupid otherwise he would have just kept his distance and taken out your legs with kicks and then gone in for a KO or submission. But boxing is cool ive been doing it for a while too.


fafey1983 March 10, 2011 at 11:59 pm

@Betjamin u mad?


Betjamin March 11, 2011 at 12:41 am

you don’t know what the fuck ive been through
but i know something about you ………… eminem? Anybody?

You sir are a lier!! I fought a black belt …. I fought a cage fighter …. I fought a jedi!!! L I A R L I A R pants on fire x


fafey1983 March 11, 2011 at 1:24 am

@LiLmJBayBehh i already fought a black belt, a close friend of mine, his name is jonothan kim. He was a black belt in karate and jujitsu. It was a good fight but i prevailed. Don’t put that “I dare you” shit on me. You don’t fucking know me, or what ive been through. Ive been through it all man.. thats all you need to know. Go live your life and don’t bother mine


LiLmJBayBehh March 11, 2011 at 1:53 am

@fafey1983 If you end up on the ground you’re screwed. If you’re taken down. You’re helpless IF you don’t apply BJJ. Go step in a cage with just pure boxing and fight against with a guy in a Gi. And a true fighter do not judge/insult other styles. Go fight a black belt. I dare you.


fafey1983 March 11, 2011 at 1:56 am

the mma guy got me in a clinch, another jaw-breaking uppercut. The muy thai guy was fun to fight. Me nd Him have great respect for each other now. All im saying is, personal opinon, all those grappling arts are useless. I don’t dry hump my opponent till he taps, i stand up and fight with my hands. Boxing is the way to go


fafey1983 March 11, 2011 at 2:25 am

i personally been boxing for 4 yrs. One of my friends who practices jujitsu(srry if i misspelled) thought he can beat me in a fight. So he came up to me, real cocky nd shit,jumping up and down, then we start.. i knocked him out with my first punch, a straight jab. Some other friends heard of this and wanted to fight me too. A wrestler, Muy thai, and mma. I won all of them with the first punch, wrestler went for my waist, he didn’t even see my uppercut–


tbraysmanee1 March 11, 2011 at 2:29 am

remiinds me of james toney


h0rangi March 11, 2011 at 3:11 am

@GanGs7a does anyone else find that impossible to do if your punching fast? knocking yourself silly with your own shoulder.

it’s unnecessary i think.

necessary if you’re doing a kick and the arm comes down for twirk but other than that….not needed.

just my opinion.

and also apparently the opinion of this young talented fighter
