SELF-DEFENSE HAS NO RULES...

THE UFC DOES...
...to protect the lives and careers of its competitors. To those of you who think you can withstand an eye gouge, groin crush, etc: most of these were accidents--and they STILL incapacitated their victims, even though these were professional athletes and the fights were STOPPED. Imagine if illegal moves were done NON-STOP and with FULL INTENSITY and RUTHLESS INTENT. That's just ONE of the differences between Sport fighting and real self-defense.

EYE GOUGES DON'T WORK?

    • CRIMINALS DON'T FOLLOW RULES--WHY SHOULD YOU?

    • TRAIN PATTERNS AND FORMS--
AND YOU'LL FIGHT WITH PATTERNS AND FORMS.
