Just wanted to know what fighting range people here are most comfortable.

Mine is the elbow and knee range. I like getting in close and personal. Get me in that "phone booth".:D

I love the clinch, so I guess that's one for elbow and knee range. Let's not forget the headbutts either!

I would have to say punch AND elbow/knee. But it depends on the oppenent.

Punching of course since my style deals with close range fighting.

We work on dealing mostly with the punch since that is what you most likely will see on the street.

I say I am comfortable in punching range, although I'm not uncomfortable in kicking or elbow and knee range. I want to be comfortable in all ranges eventually, but I would say right now that is my strength.

For me, it depends on the situation. Outside/nice weather/good surfice? Kicking range. Indoors (bars), punching/elbow/knee range. Outside bad weather (snow, ect), punching range. I wouldn't even attempt to kick in these conditions ....eeeekkkk.

For fighting, my comfort zone is definately knee elbow headbutt range...when I feel threatened I can use that range the best to save my butt. If I'm sparring then I definately like kicking and boxing range.

I perfer the elbow and knee range because it sets up for me the looping stomp kicks and conturing knee-strike stomp combinations! Sincerely, In Humility; Chiduce!

A few years ago I would have said kicking range, but since I got back into kenpo I'm more at ease in the punching and elbow/knees range.

Since I'm not a big fan of pain (yeah, I'm a wuss), I like to keep 'em as far from me as possible. Because my legs are longer than most peoples arms kicking range is most comfortable for me.

Pain is fear leaving the body........... slowly

(saw the quote on a t-shirt of a guy I was sparring, thought it was cool)

i tend to like the kicking range. although i can use my hands in close combat too.

somewhere inbetween kicking and punching is good for me. not in too close, but not so far out of range.
