Usually, when someone finds that they are at the close quarter part of a bad situation, it happens very fast. They allow the situation to get into the grabbing, tugging and pushing part. That is because they have no strike, or strikes, as they are forced inward toward the attacker. OK here it is. Practice getting your hands to your chest in a snap. Almost like you are praying. From there your hands take off as you are forced toward the attack. Attacking the attack. My students get tired of me constantly saying that. If you have to grapple, you have allowed yourself to get into that position. Go to the heavy bag and practice this. Stand back from the bag slightly. Snap your hands to your chest and explode strikes at the bag. Let your self fly at the heavy bag as you are delivering the strikes. Check the striking section of my web site . www.artrabesauechikarate.com Watch the hand position while striking. Remember --------work on hitting going in. It may be over before you actually get in. ---------Happy Trails --------Art Rabesa

I usually go over all the posts on my forum. I do this because there might be something I'd like to add. For this one, I see a quick little point that will help. To be a good infighter, you have to be able to hit hard from real close. We all know that. Lets highlight the point in the above post. To practice the hard fast strike going in. Many have to set themselves in order to deliver a strong strike. A good foundation is very helpful, but we do not always get the time to get into that proper stance. It is essential ,in most self defense situations, to be able to hit moving forward. Usually, because you are being forced forward. The hands tend to fly all over the place when you are pulled or pushed. So, you must train to snap the hands to the chest as a reaction. An automatic, muscle memory, reaction. I do it sort of like a praying position. The hands snap up to the chest, palms inward, on touch. From that hand position, practice firing a short hard punch. You can practice this on the heavy bag.Use a partner to start the assault. Lets see how fast you can get your hands to your chest, and fire that punch as your shoved or pulled. This can fit in the post on having a "Hair Trigger" as well. SO! When you are startled, snap your hands to your chest. PRACTICE. ----Happy Trails----Art
