How To Spot A Trained Fighter by PhiTuS How To Spot A Trained Fighter by PhiTuS
More tips on how to make your character look like a trained fighter.

- The first one is debatable. I'm not implying that every trained fighter does exactly that. But when retired MMA champ Bas Rutten says it's a good idea, it's a good idea.
I'm already getting the feeling that ~Dojang is gonna start arguing at me on shit like this. He always does.

- Trained fighters use arcing punches, but they don't simply flop their arms at people. The punch only has power if the forearm is lined up with the trajectory of the punch. Also, the real power isn't from the arms, but the legs.

- Here I showed the roundhouse, but don't forget the other moves such as the side kick, hook kick, etc. Though I doubt those are used that much in a street fight, especially in close range. So that's what knee strikes are for.

- Pictured here is the hip throw. There are many moves such as the shoulder throw, leg trip, tomoe nage, etc. You may have seen characters like Ryu from Street Fighter perform some of these.

- The front choke is easily counter-able since you're basically presenting your whole body to the opponent. You could do stuff like armbars or nut kicks to counter it.

- To counter that headlock, you can trip em, throw em, grab their nuts, or reach over to fishhook their face...it's just too easy.

- Seriously. No girly flailing.

- But of course, in a street fight, there are no rules. Pick up any object to use as a weapon. Bite him, fish-hook him, kick him in the nuts. Anything goes.

- Also, using a gun is always better.

I think you forgot another rule:
The common man can't win fights themselves so there 20 guys with him. The trained fighter is shit outta luck....lol

Nice stuff man!

In that case, the trained fighter had better learn some parkour skills, so he can run the fuck out.

That's when someone hooks their finger(s) into your mouth (or nose) and pulls really hard.

Having learned Karate first hand, though with a pretty basic moveset only. "Punch, Knife hand, Back hand, Front kick, Round kick, Side kick" And three separate blocks. I have tried to give everyone convenincing fighting styles... And everyone has fire arms.

So the local justification is that Light bullet immunity is fairly common, and Bullet immune monsters are bloody common...Bring a sword.

Which is practical when it comes to common personal shields in setting, How ever much you can bring with you.

Bullet proof monsters though tend to go from killable with bullets or special ammo, or needs anti armor weapons...Disposable anti armor weapons are common with different groups. :D

This is great, but do you have a guide for CQC fighters? A OC of mine that I've yet to draw fights with a wing chun/krav maga inspired style, and I'd like to know exactly how I could draw that correctly.

But it's only striking. I haven't covered grapples since they're too complex. I might do a guide for slams/throws.

I don't think you can get a decision win in a street fight (in Garcia's case, not Leben's)

That's a very good point, but they say Jon Fitch could take a knife fight to a decision. The judge-hypnotizing power of Hypnogarcia can't be contained by something as pitiful as logic.

Judge's cannot withstand the allure of a man flailing so hard he knocks himself on his ass.

The COME AT ME BRO, while hilarious, is a bad pose in general. I once had beef with a guy who made this pose. The fact that he was stupid enough to do it with wide legs and that I am a pretty tall guy made it pretty much the easiest crotch kick ever. I didn't even had to move from the spot.

Combat pragmatism, fuck yeah.
