I apologize if this belongs in a different thread.
In many TMA, you bring your opposite fist back to the hip. Push-and-pull and all that.
Quick question for you: How can you incorporate TMA techniques with a guard position more similar to Muay Thai/boxing?
I don't want to leave my face open to attack, but most TMA schools have a hand down. How do I train in a club without despising my form?
