I think people underestimate distance, angles and timing and just how important they are. I spend a lot of time controlling the distance and training to do so. Down to weight placement of my opponent and my weight placement as an example. (my weight placement for explosiveness) I specifically specialize in trying to create a situation where my opponents weight is either too much on the back foot or too much on the front foot. Either situation with the right distance allows me to utilize my A to B speed to cover the distance and strike my opponent before they can do anything. I set this distance and weight displacement up with fakes and movement with angles to create the proper weight displacement and then it is all about timing. Currently I am working on a video project in this area because this skill set is very relevant for IRT practitioners. It doesn't matter your size, attributes, etc. if you can control the distance and utilize the right angles and have the correct timing you will be effective!
