      Knifes would be better in a hand to hand situation. Good portion of fights start with a sucker punch. A trained cop needs 21 ft of distance to be able to take out a loaded gun and shoot it without being tackled by a running assailant. A knife can just be taken out and swun much more easily.

        If you kill with a knife in self defence it's much harder to defend in court hence a gun is better

          Don´t get caught. Turn your phone off, run away, get rid of your cloth and the knife. Don´t kill people who know you and don´t run into places with many people.

        That rule involves the man with the knife being shot EVERY time, and assumes the man with the gun does not move or use their off hand to defend. It also assumes the man with the knife is already running at the start.

        Knives are shit.

        The “21ft rule” is a myth based on a misunderstanding about a training exercise where they shoot from 21ft away. Even if this were exclusively the situation in which one would need a weapon, a gun would be better than a knife. There is almost no situation in which it would be worse to have a gun than a knife.

        Knife is the WORST self-defense tool ever, period for legal implications alone. Better to carry any heavy metal object, like a multitool, or I dunno a fucking wrench

        Knives are good in that any idiot can use them. But guns and blunt metal objects are better.

        Movies have made knives into anime swords though. A ball-pen hammer is a lot more effective. One swing to the dome and you’re out. Any movie where they use knives in stealth missions is retarded.

      Yup. Ironically the more familiar you are with martial arts, the more difficult it can be in a real fight with an untrained person because they won’t move or act like your competitors at all. Most people don’t even know how to punch, so knowing the fundamentals puts you far ahead of at least 80% of them

    As someone who has trained and competed in many different martial arts over the course of my life, I would say kickboxing/muay Thai. I think it's better than boxing because of leg kicks, anybody can throw a punch but when leg kicks are involved, its throw them off guard. One good leg kick would put someone on their ass pretty quick. I would also recommend training MMA style BJJ no gi grappling so you're not completely clueless on the ground but I would not recommend resorting to it unless it is a 1v1 fight. I don't recommend training sport BJJ because Pulling guard and trying to get a Dela heva is going to get your head stomped in.

          Yea just ignore the thousands of kicks thrown by professional fighters that have been caught. You really think your slow ass or some other average person is going to do better? Outside of a handful of people who have been training well over a decade I’ll sure as shit snap your leg if you throw a mid to high kick at me and I catch. This is advice for the average person, stop pretending everyone is throwing the fastest kicks.

            You don't even have to throw kicks fast to catch people with them. There's tons of ways to set up kicks. Angles so you can't see it coming, combos, feinting with a question mark kick etc. Thinking you you're just gonna do something in a fight vs actually training to do it is. So no you're not just gonna catch it

              The issue is you have to train to catch kicks just like you have to train to throw kicks. You are not going to just catch a kick. The only thing that works in fights is muscle memory. You have never seen people grab a leg outside of an mma/ufc context because they aren't trained to catch kicks and sweep. The notion that you're just gonna do this or do that is just your ego

      Throwing leg kicks in a MMA fight is fine, because most opponents are going to just check it and respect your counter punch, because they're fighting for multiple rounds and not just going all in every attack.

      But throwing leg kicks in a street fight is just damn stupid. If you throw a leg kick at some rando off the street, most likely they're just immediately going to bum rush through it and shove you down on your ass, and then congrats you're dead!

    Boxing. Condition your hands to hit without gloves on, and know what areas of the body to hit with a close fist without breaking your hands. Open palm strikes to the head or other bony areas are best. A solid palm strike to the temple or jaw can fuck someone up (assuming you’re not a DYEL) even with their guard up. Look up Bas Rutten’s fighting style for reference. Retards talking about kicking, BJJ, karate, or Krav Maga are clueless. Kicking in a real fight should be used sparingly as it makes you extremely vulnerable (if I catch your leg I can break it or throw your ass on the ground, it takes you off balance while you’re kicking, etc), Karate is mostly for show, BJJ is great when you’re on the ground or for submissions, but you don’t want to be on the ground at all in a real fight so it should only be a last resort, and Krav Maga is barely even useful for a real knife fight. You don’t want to get in a knife fight btw even if you’re seriously skilled you’ll likely get stabbed and cut a few times it’s a shit situation to be in. All of this isn’t even factoring in a scenario in which there are multiple people or you are taken by surprise, both of which are more likely to happen. At least know the basics of punching/submissions, and carry a gun or knife.

      assuming nobody is going to walk up and stomp on your head while you’re on the ground probably traditional wrestling. Otherwise I would say that the 100 metre dash mogs.

      karate is perfectly fine if it’s not a meme dojo though, what do you have against the art performed properly?

      Is there any martial art that would help in a fight with multiple people? I went to a few self-defense classes after I got mugged by a couple of people but when I asked the instructor about this, the question seemed to piss him off and he left it unanswered. I feel the only thing that helped me with mugging (hard neighbourhood) was putting on a good few pounds and not walking like a potential victim.

    The real answer is any that has you sparring regularly. Really, it doesn't matter. When you get in an actual fight, you're going to rely on instinct and if you can default to any moves that actually work and are more efficient than just throwing haymakers, you'll wipe the floor with anyone unless they're way above your weight class.

    Muay Thai, BJJ, Boxing, whatever. It doesn't matter. Do what you enjoy. You could make arguments for one being better than the other but really you're way more likely to come across somebody who has minimal training than end up in some Youtube video titled "BJJ VS MUAY THAI STREET FIGHT".

      Even sparring is debatable. I’m very nice while sparring compared to a real fight as anyone would be. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t fight unless it’s in self defense or I intend to practically kill the person. I won’t bother if the cause of the fight doesn’t make it worth severely injuring them. For example in a real fight I’m gouging eyes, breaking bones, kicking balls, and smashing faces into walls. Obviously nothing even close to that happens while sparring, but it does at least get you more familiar with how to move.

    Being a well-balanced person who can avoid conflict, deescalate it if it comes, or just smash some fool's head in when there is no other choice. The one serious fight I've ever been in, I
    >spat in the guy's face to blind him
    >kicked him in the sack as hard as i could
    >then slammed his head into the wall behind him repeatedly until he collapsed
    because if I hadn't, he would've used his height and weight advantages to slaughter me. He started it, I tried to walk, and he wouldn't let me.

    But that's fighting for survival in reality. To prep for that, train in any system you enjoy (savate, boxing, kickboxing, etc.) and recognize that many of those rules will not apply when you get into it for real. My own background was in boxing.

    martial arts train movements and real fights wont wait for your kata or well placed elbow. do boxing and focus on not getting knocked the fuck out, standing there and being able to move facing the coin tosses of death without tripping on your opponent's foot is the best you are going to be on martial arts. scientifically speaking, if you are not paralyzed, cant get knocked out and can keep hitting your opponent as you can, what are you even doing wrong, while you still have energy. so just do boxing, think mike tyson peekaboo style, hitting and trying to not get hit.

    The real benefit of muay thai in a street fight is the ability to effectively throw knees and elbows in a clinch. And for this reason it mogs all other martial arts for use in a real fight.

    imo if you have practiced boxing, muay thai, or wrestling and aren't in horrific shape as far as cardio is concerned then those are the best odds you're going to get. the thing that surprised me most about boxing was how fucking exhausting it is and how the average untrained person will be gassed very quickly and therefore susceptible to getting wrecked by the other guy
    so i guess cardio is the best martial art, lol

    Boxing, you want to keep distance, not get down on the ground, BJJ is useless because of that, in a real fight if you go down you’ll end up with your eyes being gouged out, that’s assuming that you don’t get kicked by his mates or stabbed.

    >For 1 on 1 encounters:
    A combination of BJJ, Wrestling and Judo. In a real world fight, everything is going to happen in less than 10 seconds. In all likelihood, the only thing your opponent knows how to do is throw a few wild haymakers at your head and hope he knocks you out before he runs out of gas. If you can get him on the ground and control his arms, he's probably going to be helpless. This video is a good example. Black kid is tough shit when he's throwing punches, but helpless as a toddler as soon as the white guy grabs him and he can't throw no more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGIVCD8lBH0

    >For 1 vs. a group encounters:
    #1 is knowing how to run the fuck away as fast as you can.
    #2 if you can't run, is probably just boxing. If you go to the ground against multiple opponents, then you are basically dead. You have to stay on your feet, stick and move as much as possible, be explosive and overwhelming, and try to end it as quick as possible.

    Self defence, ranked by effectiveness, from my experience as an mma fighter:
    1. not being a retarded mouthbreathing ape that gets into fights in the first place
    2. running away
    3. gun
    4. pepper spray
    5. closed range weapons
    6.Wrestling/bjj/Judo
    7.any striking
    Striking gets more effective than grappling if you also know grappling, but choosing only one, I’d go with no gi Bjj every day. I don’t know why people here have the misconception that Bjj guys want to be on their backs. Everything is designed to get you in mount, aka on top of your opponent, and you don’t need to be Mike Tyson to pummel someone from there
