DISCUSSION

I'd have to disagree. I think monster fights - unless the monsters are humanoid - tend to lean towards instinct. This generally leads to confrontations, where protection is of a lesser concern, whilst the creatures offensive tools (usually the mouth/teeth) are used to target the opponents neck. There is sport, for a gambler, but little else.

Because of this, most monster related bouts tend to be squally messes; a wrestling match absent of technique or strategy.

Now, one wildcard, if you will, is the Kaiju type monster. As even the likes of the Super Sentai and Ultraman - both of which are well studied in their martial disciplines - need to be aware of some Keiju techniques. It's a whole different (pardon the pun!) beast.

But this is serious business, so we can't just use 'monster' and 'best' all willy-nilly.
