Street Fighting Works…Sometimes
Just throwing up the hands and having a good fist fight can work sometimes. Especially if the other fighter is just throwing hands, sure it’s great, but even a small amount of proper training changes everything.
Suddenly one guy is just throwing hands, the other is measuring their opportunities and wasting no energy. The moment a finishing strike becomes available, the trained fighter will always react quicker.
