Fronting - martial-arts


"Fronting": The dodge to get in close to you. The fore assault, as contrasting to the ambush.

Fronting can be each a address battle (intimidation) or it can make use of "artifice", i. e. "got a light?", "got the time?", "how do I get to such and such?" Whatever thing "innocent" to throw you off your guard and allow the goon to "get into your shelter zone". That is the area where act is Constantly earlier than re-action.

The key here is NEVER TRUST anyone's "intention", NEVER!

Maintaining the "reactionary gap" is the free most central "thing" in this situation. In order for ANY argue with to be optimally helpful three effects must "work" in the attackers favor: Time - Coldness - Opportunity.

NEVER "allow" a person surrounded by arms distance. If they are close an adequate amount of to easily reach out and touch you, you have a BIG PROBLEM.

How did you get there?

I wish I had a dime for every self-defense "expert" that starts with this line - OK, the bad guy throws a punch. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

WHAT? Did he just arrive on the scene in a cloud of smoke? Basically appear from nowhere? What preceded this "punch"?

How did he attempt you and cope to get into your wellbeing zone? Is it an "ambush"? How did you wind up big business with the attack? The equation for commerce with this is NOT the "defense", it's accepting our "triad", TIME - Coldness - OPPORTUNITY.

Increase the TIME compulsory for the attacker to be effective.

Decrease the TIME basic for YOUR assail to be effective.

Increase the Detach crucial for the attacker to be effective.

Decrease the Detachment de rigueur for YOUR argue with to be effective.

Remove or curtail the Occasion crucial for the goon to be effective.

MAXIMIZE your Opening to make YOUR argument effective.

The attacker has to Aim YOU, COVER THE Aloofness TO GET TO YOU, and then have THE Occasion to execute his assault, in other words you have to be there when he gets there.

Now! Time - Coldness - Opening = SPEED - POWER - ACCURACY.

That's the full "combat" equation. It works for the attacker AND it works for you.

So, I'm more anxious with "how" we disrupt the equation for the foe and use it to our advantage, than I am about "defending adjacent to the punch".

Here are two good ones:

"A miss is as good as a mile" "Almost only works for horseshoes and hand-grenades"

That's also what I mean when I say look at the "big picture".

Combat shooting:

Speed and "man-killing" accuracy: "nail driving" exactness is great as long as it doesn't assume your SPEED!

Distance: amount off the greatest "area" in your home. Hallway, bedroom, kitchen, or all the sitting room that an act of violence may occur. What's the distance? Don't waste time at firing ranges over that!

I know associates that have weapons purposefully to be found about their active environment. Never know where you'll be when you need what you don't have, right?

How about the one place where you actually are naked as a jay-bird? How about the shower? Drawstring or a fake bag (waterproof) with you, in the shower, containing 230 grains of "soap". No, I'm NOT kidding. Beat to have "it" and NOT ever need it, than to need "it" and NOT have it. ALWAYS, ALWAYS. . . . . remember Uncle Murphy! The SOB will continually show up when least expected, ALWAYS!
