One of the key components to fighting is being able to take it as well as dish it out. In looking at martial arts, there is always a lot of theory and discussion about what works and what doesn't. All you need to do is spar and compete and you will find out. You can find footage of real fights (street and ring) and see techniques applied (legal and illegal in sport). If you fight you will feel pain and see who you respond to it. This is inevitable and necessary. I see guys talk about what they think will stop an opponent but they've never used their theoritical techniques in reality.
