    Little guys are better on the inside in the ring but the average non professional fighter probably needs to stay on the outside in an actual self defense situation?

    Size differences are not much of an issue in the ring are they?

    Because of that whole weight class thing?

    Your average non-professional fighter usually goes down the centerline doesn't he? Or is that the motherline?

    Well, maybe, usually "dancers/steppers" tend to be tall. And Mantis, weight classes, not height classes. Altrough if happens more often then not that the height difference isnt too big, they are way too much exceptions to ignore it (Im thinking of Thomas Hearns now, he fought Duran, he was almost twice as tall as him). You see, most people at my heigh, are two classes below me, sometimes even more.

    Sometimes, being shorter than your opponent may help you to dodge their punches, step aside and counter. But I think is wiser to fight inside, were their bigger reach plays against them.

    Most fighters, myself included, use a combination of both.
    Being a smaller and lighter individual, there are benefits to BOTH principles.
    Its what you prefer, that this thread is about, and why you prefer it.

    So if someone tries to push me with both hands..I hold my ground, eyegouge them and stomp the instep. That's a good defense and that's the centerline.

    If someone tries to push me, I step to the outside and deflect both their arms, kick to the back of the leg...that's the blind spot.
