How we can use our martial art skills, the smartest way in a street fight. Anyway I have a very good example here. There are two guys about to get into a fight here and as you can see the guy in your left here, he is a martial art expert for sure, you know he is the guy who has been training and he is probably just trying to get that bike. That bike is his at end of the fight he takes his bike and then walks away and leaves with it. And this guy standing between him and his bike, I don’t know for what reason, that’s not really what we are interested, what we are interested in seeing is, how – what’s the smartest way to – to approach a fight?
Well for me the number one thing is you want to avoid the fight at all costs. Because you never know how it could escalate, what can happen, a third-party might jump in. So let’s see what the guy in the left here does first okay so the fight starts and exactly, he did the exact right thing, look he got into a staggered stance, this is brilliant, brilliant on his part. Watch here look at his footwork, right away he is in fighting stance. And he is using a frame here, I really did a tutorial on framing and I will add that in description so you guys, can you look at it. If you guys can see that that line there is his yellow hand is his hand, and look at his other hand, here. Because he is in a staggered stance. Because he standing sideways, he is not only making himself a much smaller target you look at our friend over here. He is a huge target, look at all that, you know he have all this to attack. That’s a huge target and his head is just right there, nothing in between the head and the fist.
Okay, so it’s really important, the first thing I do is keep myself at a distance. Because distance is safety, you know, I always use a distance to protect myself, that’s my number one objective. Always use distance to protect yourself, get into your fighting stance and then walk backwards. Why do you want to walk backwards, because you want to tell the guy, ‘hey, look if you want out of this fight I can give you a way out of this fight, just walk away and I’ll walk away’. But this guy, our friend here on the right, he is walking forward, he is walking forward, now you got a decision to make. Okay, a martial artist on the left has a decision to make, do I fight? Or do let this guy hit me, you know, and he did it while – still look he kept his hand out and he kept in the frame, you know, I show the frame in the tutorial I’ll keep it into the description later on.

When you’re in frame position, it’s very hard for you to punch me, this guy on the right here; he would have a hard time punching me. Because to throw a punch here, he has to cock his fist back and then he has to come forward. Now on a trained martial artist that’s going to take sometime and I’m going to recognize that, you know, it’s going to be hard for you to just throw a punch from here. Because it would be very little power and because of this frame here, I’ll be able to nudge you, if I nudge you backward just a little bit, it kills the power in your strike. Now another very important thing, why you should frame? Because you’re always keeping this guy in your view, you see this guy’s view here, look at this, the further the guy is, the more you view of his body the more you can view, right?
So that’s very important, not only are we had a greater distance, okay, distance protects me, because it’s harder for you to reach me, and I also have a much better vision. So getting yourself sideways has many advantages. One, you are smaller target, two you have better vision, three you’re giving the guy a chance to get out of the fight. And four you are protecting your vulnerable areas, you are protecting the guy from kicking on the groin and trying to poke him in the eye, and lets not forget that a strike – a straight punch is always faster than the eye, now this guy were really closer if they were nose to nose here. This guy could throw a punch, below reaction time, human interaction time it’s about a 156 milliseconds and the punch can land before that. So you got to be – you got to be at a distance, it’s no brain here, so let’s see what happens.
Let’s see what happens.

There it is, there is a head kick, now you notice that being sideways, this guy right here, his fist is loaded here, his leg is loaded, there are ready sideways, if this guy want to throw a kick here, with this leg, he’d have to go back and then back forward and that will take a longtime and before – as he goes back, this frame would have interrupted him. It would interrupt his entire ability to strike. So this guy is doing a really smart job, the guy in the left doing really smart job, he is a ready loaded, the guy attacks him. Bang, that’s it, fight’s over, that’s the bottom line.

He’s going to to go get his bike, be on his merry way, see that fight again here. I’m going to let it play through, take you stance, keep the frame between you and him, back away, if the guy doesn’t want to let you out of the fight and you have no other choice, throw the cross or throw the head kick. This is a good example of how to use Muay Thai in a fight, trying to look at the fight escalate martial arts is for self defense. I hope you guys enjoy that.
