ive heard guys like Tim Tackett and Ted Wong are great teachers at teaching how to fight on the street.Don't now if it works in the street, my guess is it does if the person is well trained. I did have a teacher that said it worked rather well in a bar. He apparently got in a few bar fights before I knew him and JKD worked rather well
I’ve heard it de

It's right there in the theme song. Poor kids always begging to be told how to get there, every show.Ah well... I'm sorry but nothing will help you there.
There are many factors that make a great fighter, speed is definitely one of them, but reflects is the other. You can know all the moves in the world, be the strongest, but if your opponent is faster in speed and reflects, you do not have a chance.All things being equal, it does. However, discerning factors can make a difference. One such is speed. If you have incredible speed and only 1 kick, 1 block, and 1 punch then you will most likely win. Even that is questionable as I remember my old karate days and being in a 4 Seasons Tournament (Long Beach, Ca). My speed on a block was too fast and blocked nothing but air-then my opponent scored against me. Bummer and embarrassment. (That is why Sifu/Guru Dan Inosanto says "timing is more important than speed"!
Other factors make winners or losers too. Experience and mind-set, for example.
Remember: It's not the size of the dog in the fight-it's the size of the fight in the dog.
Few people have ever been jabbed in the face. I mean really nailed. Most people don't know what that feels like.The question is whether it works at all. Which should be pretty easy to tell.
The reason works on the street is not a great indicator is you probably won't see it working. Or see it working enough times to get a good idea.
Where if say some guys jab hits everyone in the room all the time and nobody has an answer to it. That is a much more reliable indicator.
