    Based on your additional detail, would you define "modern fighting" as acclimated for use in the ring/octagon, or competition otherwise? If so, then you wouldn't necessarily want something traditional, but rather, something catered for competition or easily translated to competition. Off hand, I would think of Sanda / San Shou.

    Wing Chun for one on one fighting. Hun Gar teaches the animal forms and some very practical drills like eye gouges /snake strikes. Southern schools teach the low stance and power strikes- very good for defense/offense, ShoRei Ryu/Shoalin

    I wasn't aware that modern fighting exist?  Last time i checked everyone has two arms and two legs, two eyes, a neck, and groin.  What exactly is modern fighting?

      OK, whenever I get a chance to fight in the ring I'll just bring a pistol then..
