Here's a couple of where martial artist are taking down the bad. I know that some videos are staged, but the ones I'm about to show you aren't & you can see for yourself if you don't believe me,







Here's more on this link

P.S If you practice sloppy then you'll do sloppy

My brother's been taking Muay Thai for only a few months, he's not particulary skilled in. That being said, he's become significantly better at fighting than me and I don't think I would have a chance now. I think any martial art where you spar and specifically are forced to take hits to the face will give a huge advantage over the average person. I think people really underestimate how unprepared the average person is in fighting and it only takes practice to have a large edge over other people.

For the most part, it takes time to be really skilled, especially Muay Thai. I know some moves like.

Elbow

Knee to the stomach

Teep

However, I don't have too much experience in it

I do have a bluebelt in TKD and Shotokan Karate.

like Muay Thai footwork matters & so does having a good block

Be able to control your breathing. If you don't you're going to get tired very easily & you're more likely to be defeated by your opponent, which is really bad, especially if your opponent knows how to fight back.

I would advise to work the core of the stomach as well because it'll help you longer into rounds.

These were excercises I did during my time at Sovereign Martial Arts. The head instructor was Jose Di-Cervo(Diaz-Cervo)

Split for 13 minutes.(I was in my teens at the time)

Plank for an hour (Was also in my teens)

It was disciplined for it because I failed to write my report.

400 push ups

Rolling a heavybag back & forth, which was the worst excercise because that was the one you did after we exhausted

Here's their YouTube channel



There are are Schools I went like

Christian Karate Institute the head instructor was Michael Morris. They taught regular Karate

Universal Martial Arts the head instructor was Damien Harley. I took mostly the TKD class. There were a few occasions that I took cardio Kickboxing.

World Class Martial Arts

Head Instructor Master Perry(never got his last name). I was mostly trained by instructor Myles

Now I go to Rare Breed MMA. The head instructors are Coach Emilio & Stephanie.

Edit

Haven't been as much shape as I was then, but that's another story.

Meh a bullet to the head in Central/South America, South Africa or knife in the streets of London makes them pointless
That's false. When someone takes their fighting style seriously their body acts independently when defending themselves, in other words your reflexes will increase. That's if someone takes their training seriously & I address the firearms situation when I first posted this.

This is something I have been interested in lately. There's so much theory and variation involved in fighting which you don't always think about when judging martial arts. A short trip to a dojo just isn't gonna prepare you for everything that can happen in a critical situation
