a fight with no rules , no ref , an assualt or even perhaps mutual confrontation , is different than one goverend by ruleset .
however there is a large crossover .
being a survivor of a few real altercations is not the magic bullet either .
some folks will go through the real thing and not learn anything .
some will find some answers in terms of mindset phsyche , and more importantly perhaps ask the real questions .
having said that it`s all perspective , A good ring fighter could go out pick a fight or two or a hundred , and then brag how they have had a hundred street fights and never been beaten , it would be simple ......
but would they really have been in a real fight ?
I think were talking about Assault , the ambush , and the physchological ramifications that go with that .
the desperation , the intent and will to overcome .
Look forward to where this thread may go .
Real fight ...... ring fighters are fighting for real , they arent fighting for there lives though .
A real fight to me would be when your fighting for the will to survive , to overcome , to continue despite your failure or demise , to fight because it`s the only real thing you have , to go on or out the way you intend to live your life .
the example you gave the person was injured and, as you pointed out, could have been killed, because he tried to apply a specific skill in an innappropriate situation. His injuries (and his death, had the threats chosen to keep kicking instead of leaving) could have been directly attributed to bringing an MMA mindset, skills and instincts to real life.
