As always the video is broken down into 3 sections:
Part 1: How you Should Stand when Someone is in Your Face
How should you stand when someone is in your face, should you take an obvious fighting stance? Well we suggest that you stand square and not side on. There are a number of risks of standing side on (in a fighting stance) at close quarter. This style fighting or boxing guard may not be appropriate for extreme close quarter combat. We discuss the main risks of taking a obvious fighting stance, but feel free to add your thoughts on the matter.
Part 2: What Position Should You Adopt: How to make the fight predictable?
We believe that you should, if possible move to one side of the person who is threatening or intimidating you. Firstly, you need to hold your ground and secondly you then need to move towards a side. It is better for the person to facing you at an awkward angle. This will limit their ability to punch properly with one side of their body, in particular the jammed side.
Part 3: Where do You Look? Do you look into their eyes?
This is an old question that many people have different opinions about. So we would especially love to hear your thoughts on this matter. From our perspective we believe that you should not put too much emphasis on staring into your attackers eyes. This only creates tunnelled vision and distracts you from reacting to fast punches. Although it may help you better detect a headbut attack.
