Boxer vs. street fighter: someone goes down

Saturday, June 24, 2017

The sport of Mixed Martial Arts has been around a lot longer than most people believe, however; it was introduced to the world on a cold evening in Denver, Colorado on November 12, 1993, and called the Ultimate Fighting Championship.  The premise was beautiful in its simplicity: to simply answer the question of which martial art is most effective.

Fast forward over 20 years and we now have a sport that jockeys for top position in popularity in many countries. Although the sport has evolved, the original question that was set out to be answered is still one that intrigues people to this day.

The question of whether or not a martial art is effective is also a question that has been asked repeatedly.  Not necessarily effective as in being more effective than another martial art but more along the lines of is it effective against a street fighter?

In the video below we find out as a trained street fighter takes on a neighborhood street fighter.

Neither www.mixedmartialarts.com nor I promote street fighting or physical acts of violence in any form or fashion, however; we wholeheartedly support the advancement of one’s knowledge and ability to protect themselves as well as those around them in situations of peril.

There are some valuable lessons to be learned from the video below, in particular, the usefulness of even the most basic of martial arts or self-defense knowledge.  The art of boxing is very simplistic in the sense that you have two available weapons: the right and left hands; yet just as many other arts, the level of intricacy and detail which those two weapons can be utilized is astounding.

So check out the video below to see what happens when a trained boxer takes on a street fighter.
