4 Ranges of Combat part 4

Moving from one range to the next is called a transition.
A good fighter knows when they are in transition and knows how to use transitions to their advantage. 

SIX TRANSITIONS:
1. Long Range to Medium Range
2. Medium Range to Close Range
3. Close Range to Ground Range
4. Ground Range to Close Range
5. Close Range to Medium Range
6. Medium Range to Long Range 


Remember this, when a person is changing range, it means they are trying to get an advantage in the next range. 

1. Long Range to Medium Range
Offense: Use feints. Use combos. 
Defense: Stop their charging in.

2. Medium Range to Close Range
Offense: Use armor or change levels.
Defense: Have your arms inside.

3. Close Range to Ground Range
Offense: Attack their balance.
Defense: Make space and get in base or pull them into your Guard. 

4. Ground Range to Close Range
Offense: Create space.
Defense: Kill space.

5. Close Range to Medium Range
Offense: Break off with strikes.

Defense: Keep you guard up.


6. Medium Range to Long Range 
Offense: Shield and move away.
Defense: Stick and move but don't chase.
