A Lesson in Street MMA: The Taxi Driver Standing Arm Triangle Takedown

If there’s one lesson to be learned from all the lessons in Street MMA that MiddleEasy has posted over the years, it’s that there’s no telling who tranes UFC (bro). All MiddleEasy readers should know by now not to mess with random people in the street because you never know whether they might turn out to actually have some skill in fighting.

For example; if you’re vacationing in Romania and are lost on your way back to the hotel from the street horse race you just attended, don’t hail a cab and then get upset at the cab driver for actually pulling over to pick you up. That is what you wanted him to do in the first place. If he pulled over, get into the cab and politely tell him the name of the hotel you are staying at so he can take you there. Pay the cab driver when/if he drops you off at your hotel. Now, if the taxi driver decided to perhaps rob you or took you to the opposite side of town instead, then you have the right to be upset with him. But don’t just decide to bust out them sweet MMA moves you saw on the TV, because the taxi driver might just get you in a standing arm triangle, use it to get a takedown, and ground-and-pound your head and kidneys. If/when you get your head and kidneys ground-and-pounded, don’t run after the taxi yelling at him that you still need to get to your hotel.
