Well, it's defined by an author that there are six ways. Maybe there are four, maybe there are 7. Difficult to interpret. You can slip left, slip right. You can take a small step back. You can move your head slightly back. You can "roll" with it like Mayweather Jr. The list goes on. You can block if with your lead hand, and jab back. You can block it with ...

I only know 3: 1) Slip the punch: push on the front foot and slide on the back foot a bit. While doing this, also shift your weight on the back foot so the moment your opponent retracts their jab, you immediately push on the back foot and counter with a hard cross. Don't slide too much, otherwise you'll be out of range and unable to counter (which is ok as ...

I suspect it´s because your punching with your fist sideways, as apposed to punching straight, with your thumb facing up, but I´m just guessing :b

This seems pretty straight forward. If you plan to wear your prosthetic while using the mouthguard, mold it with the prosthetic in place. If you plan on using the mouthguard without your prosthetic, mold it without the prosthetic in place. If you are looking for advice on whether to wear your prosthetic, or not, you should consult your dentist. Your ...

Here are some defensive principles: Control distance - If you simply want to defend yourself, keep others ...

I haven't done straight boxing, but have 20+ years of striking TMA's with some kickboxing thrown in. I started BJJ when I was about 44, and got my black belt just before my 59th birthday. I spent about six years at white belt, but the rest of my belt progression matched that of many of my younger peers. I do pretty much all BJJ now, TBH I got sick of ...

One thing to realize is that you have two factors that affect blocking a strike: 1) reaction time, and 2) tracking. Reaction time is the time taken by your brain to notice the strike coming towards you, to calculate an appropriate response, and to begin to move to counter it. (Notice I said "begin" to move, not the complete movement.) If a strike has a ...

Why can you not dodge every attack? For the following reasons: If you dodge every attack (without supplying your own), you're no longer fighting, but running. That generally goes against the martial aspect of martial arts. Your opponent can keep giving out attacks faster than you dodge them. Your dodge could end up moving you into the way of the next ...

Sometimes your opponent is faster than you. Sometimes they can read your body language and your tells, and fake you out, or feint. Sometimes you might have patterns that leave you open in predictable ways, and they take advantage of that. Sometimes you think you are dodging to safety and you're walking right into the attack. "More training" could help, ...

The outcome is at the discretion of the referee. Referee's are human & have to make calls based on pressure of doing what is right for the fighter (a living human being), by the promoter (who pays the ref) & by the crowd (who pay the promoter). Sometimes they have to consider organized crime. In the end whatever the call the referee may be called up ...

Being unable to defend oneself at any time until the final bell has rung and the fight is over ends the fight. The fact that a fighter could conceivably not take another punch, or probably not take another punch, despite their being time on the clock, is immaterial. Your shock confuses me, since the rule is straightforward: if the fight is on, you have to be ...

Jiu Jitsu is about Technique. There are movements that needs a little more flexibility than others but not exceptional flexibility. You will learn movements that require or not flexibility, also movements that require more explosion or strength. During the fight you will use just that you are comfortable and confident to do. Because the Technique is the ...

Jujitsu isn't harder, per se, but the stresses of boxing/kickboxing on an aging body can be very different than those of jujitsu. While age doesn't do our joints any favors, stretching doesn't need to be the purview of the young. My 70+ year old father started Tai Chi a few years ago, and he marvels at the realization that he is now more limber than he has ...

There are many reasons for this. Boxers use oil/vaseline to make their bodies more slippery. Obviously doesn't work in a tank-top. 12-rounds of boxing against 8/10oz gloves would end up wrecking an olympic style tank top really fast. Something would go loose, and there would have to be breaks in the fight. You don't want to hit anything that is not just ...
