Did a lot of martial arts and worked as a doorman also ran my own free style kick boxing club.

"there was a clever fox and a cat stood on a hill,they heard some hunting dogs coming there way the fox started telling the cat of all the clever ways he could escape,the cat stayed quite,as the dogs came into sight the cat jumped up into the nearest tree, the fox was frozen by indecision and eaten by the dogs,

Keep it simple boxing ,muay thai I tells ya hope you enjoyed the story.

I’ve been involved in a fair few fights with my last job, there’s less call for it now as a shutter and blind fitter!
The early UFCs showed that if you could take a punch or two and grapple, you would dominate. Almost every fight ends in a wrestle on the floor.
It’s a good idea to be able to block or avoid a punch, but I think the smart money would be on grappling martial arts - probably best to go to a good club with a good local reputation than go to the “best” style

Was out for a few drinks earlier this year chatting to this older guy. His topic of conversation was a Zombie Apocalypse...

He made the 'well intentioned' point that in the event of armageddon my muscles wouldn't get me very far, but his martial arts practice, sword and ninja outfit would put him in a good place.

Weeks later his missus (my masseuse) told me he got mugged on the way back that same night. She was picking bits of gravel out of his face for hours. Amusing.

If it were me, I would pick a striking martial art for the street and get the kids into lifting to build the power along with the skill and fitness of something like boxing/kickboxing.

I doubt too many proper BJJ/MMA guys will pick a fight in the streets, so if you're strong and fit, then you will have a decent advantage over many untrained thugs at grappling (provided you have no fear).

I don't claim to be tough by any means, but if someone ever got me on the floor when young, I would try and poke their eyes, dig my nails into their face, bite them or whatever you can do. Fight dirty where possible!

Be a good, humble guy (or girl) and never, EVER start a fight. But honestly, do what ever is necessary to defend yourself if the time comes.

Mass, Strength and Skill, not all children have all three early on.
Plus children grow and develop at different rates.

I cannot see Ronda Rousey having an issue with a potential large male attacker either in her Judo days or her MMA days, so skill sometimes is everything.
The arm bar queen but maybe not the best striker.

Interesting to see the different views, thanks for all the opinions so far.Happy

What if the male attacker had an 80 inch reach with speed and power. One shot and shes out.

Adam, fair point, your right.
If the attacker has all that speed and strike force then it is curtains.

We can only be the best we can be, and develop and learn.
All of us can be beaten, my point is the average attacker with average ability can be beaten by a more skilful or trained person in most cases depending on the environment, and no weapons etc, in a one on one attack.

Holly Holm did a good striking job on Rousey.

Fair point Adam.
Happy
