Yes you are totally right sensei8.

Increasing one's odds for survival on the streets is not based so much on skill but understanding the consequences of fighting there.

However with some of the right skills...

Boxing skill is the foundation of being able to combine moving and striking off combinations effectively like no other discipline can; that includes a balanced defensive and offensive approach, suitable for quick actions suitable for many self defence scenarios on the streets.

I'd say that if anyone was going to learn anything, and nothing else, at all, boxing would be the given choice, and then having learned some grappling of some sort; fights end up on the ground more than not.

Albeit, for all of that to work effectively will be dependent on the individual, and not so much on the boxing and grappling.

MMA starts from the true boxer stance.

All MMA stand up techniques derive from the true boxer stance which involves punching, palm, elbow, knees strikes, eye gouging, also kicking, tripping and throwing.

From the true boxer stancs, it can take different steps in to ground fighting, but considering to fight two people or more whilst on the ground becomes dangerous for oneself.

Whilst on one's feet it increase the odds of surviving with options, than it is fighting on the ground.

Considering the chance that the attacker is a boxer and using boxing against boxing, it will be the more experienced that will most likely to prevail, which might not be you.

Having something other than stand up boxing skill is a big plus, here being one, silat.

All instructors in the three links here in, are all well worth watching further than the examples mentioned.

In doing so, it is possible towards becoming effective maists,, also on the streets if needed.

Considering boxing skills is similar to an airport, where taking off from a good place also works well when landing.
