How to deal with someone who leans back in a fight

Tuesday, March 10, 2020

There are not many people that leave the house during the day or at night that intend to get into a street fight.  There are some that do but those people are few and far between as the average Joe has no intention of getting into a physical altercation…EVER.

Even rarer are the life-threatening or life-changing situations where a person may have to defend themselves because their life is quite literally at risk and to make matters worse the attacker may have a weapon, may have set a trap, or there may even be multiple attackers.

There are those instances when this happens and what happens when you are in a situation that absolutely requires you to fight and your opponent is leaning back and simply seems unreachable as he is out of range?  Well, neither www.mixedmartialarts.com nor myself promote street fighting or physical acts of violence in any form or fashion but there are those occasions that arise which simply require that you defend yourself or you may, in fact, be in grave danger…

Enter Shane Fazen from Fightips. In the video below, Shane takes a look at those situations where you not only are forced to physically defend yourself but are up against an opponent who is leaning back to keep out of your striking range.  This can, without a doubt, be one of the scariest scenarios you find yourself faced with as you simply cannot reach your opponent.

As frustrating and perplexing as it may be to not be able to reach your opponent there are a few things that you can do to nullify this strategy so check out the video below and learn how to properly employ techniques to help you find success in this situation.
