Interesting article in this month's Black Belt magazine. A guy studied YouTube "real life fight" videos and produced some stats: 78% of fights started with a punch 85% of the time, that was a right 97% it was a punch to the head Looking at the entire fight, there was only a grab, hold, or lock 10% of the time, and a kick of any kind 8% of the time. 75% of those kicks were below the knee 52% of fights ended up on the ground. On the ground, 100% of attacks were punches (no locks, holds, etc) There are major method objections to these results - 86% of the fights were male-male and 12% were female-female. Since it's mostly cell phone footage, there is a bias towards public places, the first world, etc. Attacks on women are likely to be different. Etcetera. Still, I found it interesting. In my experience, every untrained street drunk throws a right roundhouse punch. Your average guy doesn't have the flexibility to kick high or the knowledge to use any kind of throw or grab (or escape from one). Anyway, not saying it's some kind of definitive study or anything...just something that was interesting.
