Dissecting fighting styles
« on: February 12, 2006, 01:35:53 PM »
what are some general principles in analyzing and dissecting various fighters styles? also what kind of personal styles are there with stick fighting?

for example in boxing, the guidelines are you usually don't brawl a brawler. you box him. using your slick footwork, angles, in, out, keeping the range.

to fight a guy who does a crash cover to close the distance i have been trying to use the sidestep and lateral movement, even a shove to off balance them aor to zone out aor attack. so sidestep forehand or sidestep backhand.

Crafty has composed a list that personally, I believe covers every type of stickfighter.  The swatter, stalker, evader, and linebacker are examples from the list of ten total.  People can then be a little bit of each which can create even more fighting types.  There is an article pertaining to this in the member?s forum if I can recall.
