thinga,
Gald you liked that! It is very difficult to say a traditional MA has any value in a street fight, since traditional MA vary so much. Overall, I would say the majority of TMA schools I have been exposed to are bullshido when it comes to a street fight.

But on the flip side, there are many TMA schools today that have been enlightened to the real world and trian effective street application to some degree or cross train with another MA to improve their chances in a fight. That was really not the case when I started MA some 20 years ago.
