Most martial arts, especially those that you're learning for practical fighting, require at the very least someone else to practice with.

There's a few online teaching projects, like the Green Ranger? Tommy? He's pimping some programme. That all costs actual money, though.

I can point you at some free resources though.

Everybody hates this guy, but he does teach for free and he does have the gift of teaching.

Everybody hated this guy, but he put a lot of stuff online for free, and he knew what he knew.

And these sites have step by step tutorials.

General advice for solo training that I can give is, get a full length mirror so you can check your form and a heavy bag so you know when you're hitting with force.

https://www.gracieuniversity.com you can take up to blue belt then go test for it in person if you wanted to pay for it. White belt you mainly just learn escapes since you'll always be in a shitty defensive position since you're new.

Like, obviously every person training in MMA doesnt plan on making a career out of it, some just wanna be able to kick some ass, defned themselves etc. but ive always heard its not legal outside the ring or against untrained people or something like that because your hands are lethal weapons at some point? If not that its friends of mine who get in lots of fights talking about respect and how people who start ause they can win based on their mma training are like bullies and are not real fighters.. So whats the real common concesuses on this with everyone here?

Just make sure to train yourself in groin strikes and eye gouging and you'll be fine. Trying to street fight using professional MMA is gonna be a bad time, man. You'd be better off just training in boxing to improve your speed and hand-eye coordination.

No, the old urban legend about martial artists having to register their hands and feet as lethal weapons is false.

Yes, MMA training will give you a significant advantage in a street fight, in terms of strength, speed and stamina, conditioning against fear, pain and impact, and techniques for striking and grappling.

Compared to traditional martial arts it's probably more practical, especially arts like Aikido, Wing Chun and Bujinkan who do no sparring or competition. The downside is the sporting arts have no specific disarming techniques against weapons, and little situational, context-specific self defence training against sucker punches, unfavourable environments, training against multiple opponents, or psychological preparation in de-escalation or knowing when to stop attacking someone.

The specific street-fighting styles, the so-called "reality" systems and the military and law enforcement systems, can run to either extremely effective or extremely ineffective, depending on the instructor and the degree of pressure-testing done during training. And one end of the spectrum you've got Krav Maga and Combato-derived systems like Keysi and Aaron Banks, and at the other there's stuff that borders on no-punch knockout bullshit, like Ki Chuan Do and some of the more ridiculous Systema I've seen, where people throw themselves through the air while the instructor does some interpretive jazz ballet.

An MMA fighter will always beat a street fighter unless the street fighter hits the MMA guy in the back of the head with half a brick when he's not looking or the MMA guy takes the street fighter down to the ground and lies on top of him until the street fighter's friends show up and cut his throat. MMA will give you superior ability, but street fighting is more intent and strategy.

Which isn't to say you can't combine the two, I don't like to keep saying Bas Rutten, but Bas Rutten.

Tl;dr: MMA will make you a better fighter. A good street fighter, an experienced street fighter knows how to beat a better fighter, but unless you're working as a cop or bouncer or living in a real shit-hole you probably won't have to fight a good street fighter.

All of the strikes that MMA trained fighter land are just as legal as anyone else's.

If you happen to kill someone then maybe you'll be in just as much trouble as anyone else who kills someone else with their body.

In countries where martial arts were banned (Philippines under the dictatorship, Brazil where the slaves had to hide their Capoeira bullshit) then yes you were expected to 'register' but that was only so they could come and arrest you later to prevent you from training anybody your skills.

If you are say, a known boxer or other fighter and you assault somebody then lawyers will be all over that in court usually trying to prove that you premeditated the assault or just use it to try and trip you up so you say something stupid by ridiculing your skill so you claim otherwise (which is why you never take the stand in any case, anytime, anywhere it will never help your case).

In states that have that ridiculous law based on "mutually agreed combat" having any kind of proven fighting skills you didn't disclose before fighting would likely make you guilty of assault which is why that wannabe super hero idiot Phoenix Jones can get away with beating people up on camera because he tells them he has training when trying to provoke a fight.

McGregor has a solid left hook and Aldo basically lunged forward into it adding even more force. Blaming it on not being properly hydrated just sounds like an excuse imo. Aldo made a mistake and got caught. People just need to accept that instead of looking for excuses.

Haven't seen Kill Bill 2 in year so I'm not sure if I've got what you're talking about but there's places in China where they are still really in to martial arts. One of my friends had to travel around all different places for some sports/martial arts degree thing and one of the places he went to was some Shaolin place in China where he was telling me you'd get woken up at 5:30 am by kids practicing punches and stuff all in a row, and the stuff would go on all day. I'm not sure if he mentioned if it's a lifetime thing or maybe just like a couple of months summer camp type thing they sign up for but it would be cool to try out for a bit.

Thailand, Laos, China, Japan yes plenty of 'grandmasters' who just do martial arts in the jungle or mountains all day, especially all the monks.

The head of our flip martial arts style was a 70yr old dude who lived in the Cebu jungle and you could pay him to train 1 on 1. When you showed up he taught Arnis/Balintawak beside a waterfall with handmade bamboo sticks in the middle of nowhere.

Thailand full of these guys too, find some tiny village and a monk will be teaching Muay Thai. In China lot's of them are Qi Gong fruityloops kind of crouching dragon Kung Fu nonsense but they use swords and other weapons. Japan one of the "official" Ninja lineage masters has his own sushi restaurant where he slices the thinnest cuts with hand forged swords and knives. Not really a remote mountain

I dunno about the hermits, but I've seen some oldies that impressed me. There was the 70-year old monk that sparred with Walt Missingham in his documentary on Shaolin. The old feller kept slipping around behind Walt so he couldn't even stay facing him. Walt kept stopping and looking around for him, lol.

There used to be a Youtube of a 70-year old Wing Chun master in a street fight with a young guy who ripped his shirt off and jumped at him. The old guy sort of shoved him mid-jump and he landed on his ass. Then he offers a hand up and when the young guy takes it he boots the kid right in the face, HA! There's an old saying that "Old age and treachery will overcome youth and exuberance".

There's footage of Morehei Uyeshiba and Ip Man in their 80's but that's hard to judge unless you know what to look for, because Morehei is doing that co-operative randori where they throw themselves, and Ip is just working a wooden dummy and doing forms. So you'd probably have to be familiar with the styles before you could judge what you're seeing.

I don't know how this translates into fighting, but I'll bet there's no other guy his age who can push him around, lol. I'd be happy to be able to do this at any age.
