    and the weapon is only as good as the person using it, any type of stand-up would be very effective if used properly in a while facing multiple enemies, or even just one. Keep your distance and pick your shots, preferably striking after they make a move. Defence is really important. If you go in swinging chances are you are leaving yourself open
    A lot of the stand-up fighting got short changed after MMA fame it seems (especially at the beginning with little rules to limit groundfighting...I remember Royce Gracie fights it was like watching a spider jump on its prey. Effective but relatively boring to watch.

    I speculate that Japanese Jujitsu would be effective yet it seems pretty hard/time consuming even redundant to get close to mater/master. For the quickest training Jeet Kun Do, Muay Thai or if small arms were allowed Kali would be effective under those conditions (I dont know enough about the Hawaiian fighting arts/Kimbo(sp) to effectively speculate on it reliablity under those conditions)

    That would be cool if Jeet Kun Do were anything more than a philosophy.

    But it's not, and that makes it greater than a style.

    For a specific martial art meant to fight multiple opponents, there's Krav Maga. It's not very popular, but everyone's probably seen it, since that's what they used to choreograph Christian Bale in the Batman flicks. There are a lot of multidirectional attacks - fists one way, legs out the other, etc..

    And like the above dude said, JKD is a philosophy, and thence, leaves you open to study anything.

    Last but not least, the good thing is is that most people on the street, in some bar or whatnot, can't fight and live out their lives using scare tactics. Real fighters tend to have a good head on their shoulders, and don't engage in this stuff. OTOH, just run if they all have weapons.

    You find out what works for you. Some people aren't optimally equipped to perform high kicks, some people have poor upper body strength, others have problems that prevent extreme cardiovascular conditioning. Like JKD says, 'take what works for you, and throw out the rest.'

    Not everyone wants to be able to do a flying roundhouse kick, 8 feet in the air...:rolli:

    Some of us just prefer to time it so we punch dumbass in the groin as he sails by, or just move out of the way.

    Jun Fan Gung Fu is the core of JKD, but I agree, the ultimate meaning of Jeet Kune Do is to liberate yourself from all forms.

    You guys do mixed martial arts?

    Disco does.

    Don't think Rasofy does.

    I'm about one step away from starting training BJJ.

    But, like an NFL thread, or an MLB thread, or an NBA thread, this is about spectatorship, not participation.
