Response to Foot maneuvers are crucial,

 

Yes that is true, why I feel that much of the Kenpo in many circles is not worthy of good combat for real street or other locations...

Boxing is an example of good footwork, maneuvers etc...

Big guys as a rule suck with foot work, unless they really train hard in one that is very effective...FMA comes to mind...But compared to the little guys like Manny and his moves it does not look as good...Taking a few hits to deliver one or two comes to mind.

Whe in good shape and very fast like some of the bigger men in MMA now, they are pretty impressive...

The idea that most encounters goes to the ground is another myth as far as I have seen.

Like several of the old timers will say, grappling is good to know, so is a solid right cross.

Regards,
Gary
