Common Denominator Range

WHAT IS THE COMMON DENOMINATOR RANGE YOU NEED TO KNOW IF A FIGHT?

If you knew the majority of a history test you were going to take would cover World War II, my guess is that you would put a lot of energy and focus into studying the second world war. In self-defense, the majority of altercations will at one time find themselves in a very close range. We’ve seen in play out in decades of boxing matches, where the opponents lock up on each other, and the referee breaks them apart. We also see the same in everything from kick boxing tournaments to weapon’s matches. Close quarters is also seen in almost every grappling event, as participants must pass through close quarters to get into ground fighting positions. Not to get too graphic, but even in a female rape situation, the victim finds herself in close quarters.

What should this tell us about close quarters? Because it is seen over and over again, in almost every combative situation, one must practice it, and know it backwards and forwards. Train in this range continuously in order to get comfortable, and use the tools associated in the range to know what to use. This clip covers “CQ” importance and more.
