Self defense style

No offense, but this looks pretty much like a street brawl >_<
I don't really think this really works for real. The guy got stabbed 2 times before he neutralizes his opponent.

Some of it looks good I think. They Muay Thai style take downs work very well in my experience (grabbing around the head with booth hands).

Using a chair to create distance between yourself and the knife of an attacker also seems like a good idea.

In most MA there is mostly one on one situations in training, but in street-fights there is often a lot more people involved. Here they seem to simulate those situations in practice, which I think is good.

I like it. It seems very realistic.

I just want to qualify this by saying I don't train for self defense and know very little about it, but it does interest me. I think scenario based training is beneficial to self defense training, but I think it's best when you have other training to bring to the table.

I trained with someone who was into this scenario based training and Senshido in particular, and I'll put it this way I always died. But that's not all they did they also did padwork, and bagwork. The only thing I disagreed with was his views on training in styles. From what I understood he felt training in styles caused "stylistic interference", which would stop from using a technique quickly, like an elbow for example, because you'd be too concerned about throwing a proper muay thai elbow as opposed to just throwing the elbow.

Self defence and scenarios are all right, but unless you are a bouncer, bodyguard or a streetfighter it seems to me easier to train within a style where I can measure my skills with belt gradings and tournaments. Only training SD with violent scenarios has a little bit of a "I am always at war" attitude in it, that I personally do not have the need for in my peaceful daily life.
