Hi. I'm Sifu Romane and this is Shaolin fighting tips.
The first tip that I can give you on fighting is whoever controls the distance controls the fight. This is really important to understand. Basic, basic concept. If he's a strong puncher, I can use my foot to keep him away from me. If he's a strong kicker, I obviously need to come inside where I can use my hand skills. If he's a strong puncher, the other thing I can do is come inside the grappling.
That will also eliminate his punches, as well. Another fight tip that we use for Kung Fu in particular is using our contact reflexes. This is important because this range is what we call immobilization range, and it's one of the things that makes Kung Fu unique. So as soon as we make contact, we know exactly where he is. You don't even necessarily see him to know what to do.
The other thing is, if I come inside here, I can automatically pin his arms against his body, and that's what we mean by using your contact reflexes. I'm Sifu Romane, and these are some Shaolin fighting tips.
