I took some Shotokan Karate in college and a good mix of forms from when I was in the military. When I was a kid I love Bruce Lee and studied Jeet Kune Do.

When I was a student, I liked to do shadow boxing. But now I like to browse through websites which have brought me a lot of fun. Today I watched a video about tai chi dance. I feel the pictures are so special. So I'd like to share it with everyone.

I especially enjoy Brazilian jujitsu; the physics behind it are very interesting. Besides, most street fights usually end up at ground level fairly quickly so it's probably a good idea to for everyone to understand the basics of Brazilian jujitsu.

In my experience, most street fights are a series of unfocused punches that the participants view to be the epitome of manliness, but are really just amateur, schoolyard flailing, and then their friends pull them apart five seconds later.

This is very true. They are also usually over within the first few seconds. It's nothing like MMA actually and many times those who have extensive MMA training are caught off guard in street fights because their trained mindset is to tap the other person out rather than end the fight as soon as possible. Still useful to understand body physics in that situation, however (especially for women, who are at a physical disadvantage) which was what I was trying to say.

BJJ and traditional Japanese Ju Jitsu are both good. Japanese tends to focus on locks from a standing position, which can be more effective.

Like many grappling arts, they look more beautiful in context to MMA, which is largely sport oriented, but not as realistic in a real life setting.

The truth is you dont really wanna go to the ground, you may wanna learn some in the event you do wind up going that way, but it wont be like what you see in a UFC match or anything like that.

Judo to me can be just as effective.

I got this book and it has some interesting stuff in it.

But all styles of martial arts are good for understanding certain mechanics.

But if you do watch UFC, see the Holms vs. Rousey fight.... Ronda got wasted by a striker, as a grappler. Holms destroyed her, that is a good indication really of how a good striker can defeat a good grappler. Her defeat was also because she didn't know how to think like a striker to that level, she had no idea how to properly defend herself. Never underestimate the power of a good striker, boxers are no joke.

Its also best to learn striking first IMO, before you start getting into grappling, and BJJ and all that, because most street fights against untrained people can be ended with a good Jab, Jab, Cross combo.
