    Grappling range is chest to chest, striking range is pretty much arms extended and there is very little striking you can do from grappling distance from what little I know grappling, pretty much just elbows and knees since most G n' P has full striking distance when measuring shoulder to shoulder.

    I would say grappleing distance could be chest to chest, and being able to strike effectivly inside the optimum striking distance would perhaps negate the need to grapple

    The weakling could certainly attemp an eye strike of some sort, a knee to the groin, a head butt at chest to chest range

    I'm not saying at grappling range you don't and striking options and vice versa but they're defined by your options. When you have a full arm-length between you and someone else you have all the options available to striking but have limited grappling options (take downs and such) and at chest to chest you loose a lot of your striking options (punches, kicks, evasive options) but gain quite a few grappling options (positioning & control, submissions etc.).

    TL;DR: The ranges defined as striking and grappling are not whether you can or can't strike/grapple but what your options are for using striking or grappling.

    It's odd, the only times I ever seem to come off intelligent on Bullshido is when and only when I'm debating the semantics of this exact topic.
