Personally I favor a more bladed stance with the lead shoulder covering the chin, but I don't fight like Tyson. Tyson's style of boxing would work fantastically for MMA.

    For someone that has an aggressive, explosive boxing style, this kind of guard can work just fine, yes even in muaythai. Someone with strong infighting boxing skills can be a menace, even to someone that throws knees.
    You're reading too much into my post there, but, that is what i said, if not what I meant.

    I think the peek a boo style is great for MMA and general self defense too. Especially if your kicking sucks like mine.

    His elbows were not in front of his face, and he had his knuckles on his forehead, as opposed to palms on the top.

    That guard looks like it leaves a fairly large gap for body shots?

    Edit: When I mean that I am referring to the CM 1 video above.

    The "Hunchback Stance" minimizes that.

    You need to look at the series in its entirety to get a better perspective.

    Besides, there's only so much you can cover at any instance of time. Where on your person would you rather risk being hit - head or body? :smile:
