Very true. I study close combat like Wing Chung. Getting that close makes most people uncomfortable. That being said, though, I've also found it hard to get inside some of the distance strikers I've worked out with. One of my good friends in college was a brown belt (?) in Tae Kwon Do and studied Nin-jitsu. He was very quick and I had a hard time finding my range. I'll never forget the jump kick he hit me with on my solar plexus. I would like to learn more distance training, Tae Kwon Do high kicks, bouncing movements. My uncle is a NI Dan in Tae Kwon Do. We often shared wisdom. He was very fond of the slippery side kick.
