Next time you're chilling with your friends, why don't you stand hella close like that and ask 'em to jab you in the face, then hit you with a hook or an uppercut, so you can sleep easier.
ok, next time you do some punching excercises with a partner, y dont you tell him to hold a mit at a regualr distance, and another right up at your face, after you punch both of em as hard as you can without moving forward or back or anything, except your basic punching maneuver, if you ask your partner if the close up punch made him feel anything compared to the second one, i promise you he'll say no
Which is why you teach them how to block. Really, weaving and blocking are not hard to figure out.
i only suggested this as one of the ways to defend, i never said the best, and obviously it's very simple, you can be a retard and still know how to do this, (i know poeple who dont know how to block)
If you come in like this, you're basically setting up the clinch for your opponent.
it is very difficult to land a knee unless you have a hold of you opponent and if your in a clinch, this move is obviously not the move you should use
Sure, but to say that it will protect you from a follow up punch is delusional.
about sever damage can do through guard.. that i dont understand.. what i said you get to keep yourhands up.. obviously you will be more protected with a guard than without one... never said you wont get any head damage as long as you keep your guard up, but it is certainly, no doubt, better...
No, I didn't imply anything.
Also after you stepforward, you said after you do it youll just eat a knee... are you implying that a simple step forward will stop you from doing any movements?
I said that if you step in on a hook, your opponent will put a dirty-boxing clinch on your head and knee you in the face.
Go ahead. You're still in the clinch.
can you not step forward and kick, or punch?
If I was stepping into an opponent's fist? I wouldn't block the punch that way.
If you were the dude doing this wouldnt you throw in a counter while stepping froward?
I'd weave, then throw a counter. I like to not have my opponent's hand in my face when I punch.
And as your opponent wraps that hand around your neck and smashes through your guard with that knee, you're going to be in trouble. I'm interested to hear how you would defend those from the dirty-boxing clinch, because moving forward into those is probably not a good idea.
why would anyone wait for someone to throw in a knee, its not like this is a defence counter combo, i just said step forward and you might find it beneficial, not step forward, and do nothing thats all you can do as your defence, now do nothing as you see knees coming up at your face, and wait for another round house or a hook...
Personally, I'd rather not get hit at all.
When i said it is similar, i meant as in it is a defence where you realize that you are going to get hit, and atleast try to get hit in the least painful way. Also the skull is strong enough, that if you actually punched it direct on, you will break your fist.
You understand that the skull is not the part that matters when you get hit, right?
If you do this, you know that you'll still have your opponent applying pressure to your head, gauging the distance and making it fairly easy for him to land his next punch, right?
when you say when your busy taking the hit, you wont be able to see anything.. you take it with your forehead, not your nose.. if your forehead cant fit a fist without covering your eyes, you have a problem with the size and shape of your head, since most homo sapiens can do this.
That's really the stupidest part of this.
That's fine. There isn't another soccer ball that knows how far away they are now that they've gauged the distance.
When you see a soccer player head the ball, if they didn't close their eyes, they are perfectly able to see what is going on, even if a soccer ball is obviously bigger than a fist. and also if a guy is right in front of you, and you miss, even with your eyes closed, thats pretty bad....
Just because you said one thing that's true doesn't make you right.
one inch punch like i just said, no one uses them in mma do they, you disagree with what i have to say, yet you explain to me yourself that noone uses them... doesnt make sense.
You may also note that no one in the sport blocks punches with their forehead. (except Mark Hunt, but he's special)
I do know about boxing, bro. And this is a stupid idea with or without the clinch.
i don't know about boxing bro... they usually keep at an arm length distance, and if your talking bout a clinch, that is completely different than what i am trying to explain here...i'm talking about being at armlength distance, then move right up in front of the guy's face
Even without the clinch, you are setting up the next punch.
With the clinch, you are giving your opponent a free pass to beat your ass.
Ummm... I'm the moderator here. It's my job to point out things people say that are ridiculous and going to get the members of my forum hurt.
Please, i didnt put up all this just so i can start arguing... so dont get mad if i put some dumb stuff on this just ignore and correct me, but i will go on putting up what i know, and it is your choice to listen to it or not...hey maybe one day you'll get in a fight and find out what i said wasnt that bad... oh and i'm sorry that i mix around streetfights and mma alot in my replies....
I've been fighting for a long time and I've seen guys use this method and I'm telling you, it doesn't work against someone who's going to hit you with more than just one punch.
