The picture attached (I'M THE SHORT GUY) is a classic position that I like to be in. In this range I've nearly eliminated the striking range. I'm also in a decent controlling the position. Its easy to move into close range strikes or grappling whether it be on the ground or standing up. I would like to hear some detailed descriptions of how "our"(our refers to all of us) fight strategys are alike and are differant. Please try to be realistic and descriptive with universal terminology that we all will be able to relate to. I would also like to hear how differant techinques are perfomed by differant arts. Like how a Karate system defends against a left lead punch. And how a Gung-Fu system would defend against the same attack. And Thai and..... It would be excellent to hear about many differant systems approach to many differant defenses. Strikes, grappling and everything in between please. A technique thread without the negativity. Strictly positive and open minded responses please.
