    No one with good vision can post on this thread until we hear from Stick or Blindfury.

    This is true, its something i have talked to him about a lot. And he does want to be more of a unorthodox fighter, but he is not the most creative of a fighter, he has a hard time coming up with things on his own.

    Yeah we have been doing different drills of the sort. Only problem with the close enough to hit them is that he is a shorter dude. Just about everyone he fights has more reach than him. I think he is 5'8' and a pretty lean 170.

    By the way i like the peek-a-boo - dumbo ears thing. thatís funny as hell lol.

    I do think more bag work could be a good thing as long as he constantly worked himself in and out of striking ranges.

    I showed him these and he loved the ideal of them. Anybody know where I can get them? Shoot me a link.

    Half of our training crew (including our blind fighter) have been taking classes under a cop who is belted under Gokor. The blind fighter like most of our crew is primarily a striker. Grappling is a harder for him (except for leg locks for some reason). We all realize that with him being a close in fighter, he must have a grappling game.

    Hi.

    Fairly badly short-sighted dude here, I fight without my glasses most of the time and yes, depth perception is a bitch. What I find works for me is keeping the hands up high and the guard close and tight (crazy monkey), wait till I feel him before countering. Most of my more effective tricks are counters. Hope this helps.

    Blisterstarr, is there anything preventing your friend from wearing contact lenses? I have RIDICULOUSLY awful near-sightedness (with an extra dash of astigmatism), so I have to wear contacts in order to participate in any sporting activity. I've never had them pop out during Muay Thai class, so they've never been a problem for me.

    If your friend can wear 'em, tell him to get a prescription pronto.

    hey my vision is pretty bad without glasses, I get around it by keeping my lead arm further out than a typical stance, and throwing light kicks to help get inside. If you rely too much on shelling up, and keeping a super tight stance its easier for the other guy to come in. Sparring with taller fighters, or guys with better reach helped me as well.

    He is looking into it, and what I mean by that is when he was young he was told contact lenses would **** up his eyes if he wore them (by his eye doctor). Me and my girl friend was telling him how much contacts have changed and that he might be able to get a softer contact that will not mess with his eye. He is supposed to ask the eye doctor when he goes back. If his eyes are as sensitive as he says they are, im not sure that is a possibility.
