At the moment the question is very broad: all stances?

@DaveNewton I disagree, but would be interested in seeing the decades of evidence.

comment Which martial arts focus on self defense?
@DaveNewton I guess I should've worded my perspective more strongly. I think the opposite: six months of judo plus six months of boxing will make someone a better hand-to-hand fighter than a year of Krav Maga or similar self-defense, non-sparring-focused art.

comment Which martial arts focus on self defense?
@DaveNewton Studying non-SD arts can produce formidable self-defense skills for the vast majority of confrontations. People who compete seriously in the arts listed rarely have trouble modifying their sport techniques to the rare hand-to-hand combat situations they find themselves in, primarily because they have gobs more experience sparring at a high intensity.

@Ginamin The counterfactual to your sprawl is to get taken down. Then you get your head stomped in, plus you're on the bottom of the original attacker.

Are you training under a coach currently? Video could also help greatly.
