I disagree with this. And IMO this completely undermines the idea of "training"...it's this kind of mentality that allows people to "sort of" replicate a tried and true form of fighting and be dismissive of it's essential fundamentals because "I'm just doing me, what works for me"...Andre Berto and Adrien Broner get beat up every time they drop their lead hand and try to replicate the Crab defense, because they were not taught it. Fighting is not sitting in chairs, sitting in chairs doesn't take a tremendous amount of work or a mind for your own safety. Floyd Mayweather Jr. was ABSOLUTELY taught a particular style of fighting since childhood, molded by his Father. Did he distill it to suit himself? Absolutely. But that doesn't negate the countless hours of teaching his Father put in, remove that and the rest is likely to crumble. Mike Tyson was ABSOLUTELY taught a honed style that Cus D'Amato taught to two other World Champions and he himself said it was FULLY refined by Tyson's time. D'Amato trained other fighters, and he did not teach them this. Archie Moore absolutely used his "Lock"...which he likely picked up from Hiawatha Grey (who was a bare-knuckle Champion). He taught plenty of fighters, his Gym in San Diego still exists, run by his Son Billy. But they did not teach everyone this style. George Foreman and Gilbert Baptist used it in Title fights. They did learn those styles, they were taught them as foundations of how to fight. I don't think style is merely defined as what you can do, but HOW you do what you can do. Ingle's guys were taught the same fundamentals, that they all had different athletic attributes and methods of applying those fundamentals that they favored personally should never undermine the existence of those principals. This mentality is also why very good fighters often make shitty trainers. Because when it's time to teach someone all they try to do is get them to copy what THEY could do, instead of teaching them everything they were ever taught themselves about fighting, which would enable the student to find their own identity instead of trying in futility to replicate their teacher's abilities.
