Transition Into All Striking Ranges

One of the most important skills you can have is to be able to fight and transition between the different ranges in fighting. This is a good illustration:

A front or push kick is on the way.

Scooting back to avoid the kick, while keeping the weight forward to counter.

Right Thai kick counter to the upper leg brings the hands down...

Which opens the head up for a couple of punches.

... then Thai clinch

To a series of knee strikes

What this illustrates is that you need to be confident in fighting in each of these ranges:

Kicking, punching/striking, Clinching/infighting. Then of course, grappling.
