because if you know self-defense martial arts and ****, he'll have reflexes just as good, and know manuevers to use your own punches against you.
In boxing, they don't teach you how to grab somebody's arm punching you and break it. . .
I just think the best fighting art for street fighting would be some kind of martial arts. . Maybe even a self-defense technique like krav maga cause the guy mgith have a weapon. . Boxing doesn't teach you to disarm somebody.
Really, it'd be best if you were were well-rounded, boxing, martial arts, and had a grappling, or ground game like judo, jiu jitsu, or wrestling. . .
Just too much **** can happen in a street fight. You'd want to have something else to fall back on aside from your hands. . .
Just my opinion. . But the chances that you'll encounter somebody skilled enough in those areas in a street fight are rare. So for the most part, if you've got boxing skills, you'll win.
