      This is what can happen when an elite judoka that cross trained in striking meets a black belt Brazilian jiu-jitsu grappler that cross trained in Muytai/striking;

        Marc Macyoung - nononsenseselfdefense.com is one of the best.

        As he will tell you it's more about strategy and reading situations than anything else - putting yourself in safe places. You don't have to defend yourself from violent people if you're not there, and violent people tend to gather in certain places.

          One other tip is to spit in your opponents face and strike immediately after. No matter who you are it is instinctive to want to wipe your face if someone spits at you, this act will buy you enough time to get a strike in........make it count !

            I don't think there is another woman mixed martial artist anywhere near her level right now.

              Thanks Owen, that was the other name I was trying to remember. IIRC some very good stuff, especially around awareness of potential attackers and how they carry themselves as an indication of whether they are carrying weapons
              If you're interested in my (very) occasional updates on how I'm working out and what I'm eating click here.

                Street violence is awful, completely unpredictable and has no rules - they might be armed, they might have hidden accomplices. No martial art is going to replace basic common sense. In most cases an attacker will have already sized up a victim by the victim's lack of awareness.

                Martial arts is the final 10% of an overall personal safety model that should have more to do with psychology than it does grappling or punches. I'm not against it in any way. But the single most effective self defense technique is called 'the fence' as developed by Geoff Thompson in the UK.

                  I find that a good set of cauliflower ears, and a quietly confident demeanor is the best self-defense. But I don't exactly live in a high violence area or hang out in places where unexpected violence tends to occur, so maybe the cauliflower ears and good posture are the second line of defense and choosing your environment carefully is #1.

                    I love what everyone has posted about awareness. I had started taking Krav Maga, and loved it. "The point of Krav Maga is to get home safe" the instructors would say. A couple of the instructors were police officers, I found it helpful for them to say the move/defense/skill they were teaching worked effectively in a real life situation. I stopped going when I was pregnant, and now we moved, but I want to find Krav again. It seemed more practical rather than showy to me. My daughters will go in it to when they can, as well as their dad and I picking on them before hand. .

                      I've also been doing krav as of late; it is pretty practical.

                      Some months back a roommate of mine got mugged at knife point and, thanks to some of the WMA dagger/knife work we'd done in the past, managed to get away with only a hole in his jacket. However, it's also important to remember that if someone just wants your wallet, give them your wallet. Escalating the situation just means you're going to get hurt.

                      Who were those ladies fighting (and what's the difference between a judoka trained in striking and a bjj prac. trained in striking)? I haven't followed WMA in years and years, since the fights basically ended up as ground-n-pound all day every day, which got dull.
