The link I posted doesnt mention bjj.

MT is good. but training from YT isnt good, especially from "experts" who are nothing of the sort

I know, I was referring to the other video that I posted the link to in which he says BJJ is his preferred Martial Art but I loved the video as it made sense.

This one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfu7YRjd86Y

And yes, that's why I posted the first two videos asking for opinions as the two videos didn't really make sense. I have a good boxing instructor. It's all I'm doing atm.

Aye sound pal, I'll wave to you as you pass on by in the ambulance.
Hahaha. Exactly. I would rather get in the ring with wild haymaker man than even a guy with 2 months boxing not to mention an actual pro boxer.

Watching this guy work the bag at the beginning I could already tell I was going to agree with what he was about to say. Notice how you don't see those other two guys working a bag? Also the one guy had what looked like FMA training sticks in his bag, and in general people who do FMA do not have good hands. In my FMA class we teach some boxing, but if people want to learn how to throw real hands I tell them I can help them out to a point but they would be much better off going to a boxing gym and training (like I did).

Then you are lucky and should stick with him and get good with your hands.

The guy in the video is allegedly one of the bestime FMA instructors in the UK.

Well the man is clearly a very experienced martial artist. But I would guess that his striking is good most likely because he has trained other striking arts (like boxing) and not due to him solely training FMA. He may very well have awesome stick/blade stuff but I would be surprised if that is what made him good with his hands.

Basically what I meant was, and I still stand by this, that JUST training FMA will not give you good boxing/hand to hand combat skills. Of course in the PI a lot of FMA gyms are also boxing clubs. I know for my art, Bahad Zubu, GM Yuli trained boxers and trained FMA out of the boxing gym. But to think you will get good with hands just by training FMA is, from everything I've seen, pretty unrealistic.

Swinging a stick/blade is just too different from fighting with empty hands.

Of course, nobody would disagree that boxers have the absolute best hands (not that I'm biased....). not to mention the footwork/duck/slip/bob/weave/sway....
