I'm going to explain what each range will actually look like in a real fight.
Many people may disagree with me, but for those of you that are willing to listen, my ideas will help make your stuff work, regardless of style or technique.
Think about that, that is huge since most people spend their time arguing about what style/technique works or doesn't work. I'm saying any style/technique can work, but you need to know how the situation is going to be like.
You just can't go into a tough situation with the wrong idea!
Also think about this, many people will choose either sport or traditional and think that the two can't mix.
You are about to see how I mix them both together to help me become more effective.
4 Ranges of Combat
1. Long Range
2. Medium Range
3. Close Range
4. Ground Range
So what does each range look like in real life?
1. Long Range looks like Point Fighting.
2. Medium Range looks like Muay Thai.
3. Close Range looks like the MMA clinch.
4. Ground Range looks like MMA ground fighting.
It doesn't matter if you want to use the Crane Kick, jumping spinning heel kick, or Praying Mantis fist, as long as you have an accurate idea of what the fight is going to be like.
What about illegal moves like biting and eye gouging? In Long Range, it's going to look like Point Fighting with illegal moves.
What about weapons like a knife and baseball bat In Long Range, it's going to look like Point Fighting with weapons.
What about multiple opponents? In Long Range, it's going to look like Point Fighting with multiple opponents.
What about guns? In Long Range, it's going to look like Point Fighting with guns.
For Medium Range, Close Range, and Ground Range, well, it follows the same pattern, so I think you get the idea.
