About the only art other than Barfightdo that you will see with any regulararity is Highschool wrestling. This can be very dangerous to just about anyone. The simple charge of a drunk translates well to a single or doubleleg takedown. Warstory time...I have a friend who rarely lost a barfight even against guys alot bigger than him because he used common wrestling techniques...later when he started taking Aikido he started to avoid fights...usually by getting out of the way but I'm more convinced that he just grew up. You are correct most fights are over quick smashing the fragile 26 (or whatever) odd bones of the hand into the solid 3 of the human head is not healthly and usually promotes a quick finish on the part of the puncher.

Suck, Squeeze, Bang, Blow
That's what makes my Thumper go
