6-04 Transition Between Ranges


In order to dominate the standup fight, you must be able to control the range between you and the enemy, and to operate effectively at the various ranges, keeping the enemy reacting to your techniques, and setting the pace of the fight. The ability to keep your head and continue to execute effective techniques requires practice. This is the heart of standup fighting. To transition between ranges, use a combination of techniques such as:

  • Jab—reverse punch—shin kick to the outer thigh.
  • Jab—reverse punch—shin kick to the outer thigh—high single leg takedown.
