    Clinch Fight

    You could practice a finger jab to the eye on a BOB as a knuckle jab to the throat. But I've been training in a pressure point fighting methodology put out by Contemporary Fighting Arts called razing. In this methodology you employ eye rakes, throat strikes, ear bites, and more. Basically a...

    Clinch Fight

    Clinch Fight

    I do not have any preference to whether the fight ends with a strike or on the ground.

    How to be Self-taught?

    Maybe you came into this thread late and did not catch all the details. Early people told me a I needed a teacher and I eventually conceded this. I am going to have someone give me pointers on my training. And secondly, I fully intend on picking up a sparring partner once the snow melts and I...

    How to be Self-taught?

    I'm not doing any of this. When I say modest skills I mean balance, speed, timing and power. Remember I'm just looking for martial arts to compliment my intellectual pursuits. But I've mentioned this before - I don't know why I have to be a serious student of the martial arts in order to be...

    How to be Self-taught?

    I haven't been boxing against my BoB much because it slides around and I have to keep putting back in place disrupting my flow. I've been training punch movements with wrist weights and kettlebells.
