There are basically four ranges in fighting: Kicking, punching, trapping, and grappling. Of the thousands of fighting styles such as kung-fu, karate, wrestling, or boxing, most styles fall within the confines of only one of these ranges. 99.9 percent of all martial artists (or street brawlers) are familiar with two or three of the ranges – most no-holds-barred fighters can kick, punch, and wrestle. But one of Bruce Lee’s biggest revelations was that almost no one knows how to fight in trapping range!
In trapping range, we can utilize the most barbaric tools on the body (headbutts, knees, elbows) that have the capacity to take an opponent out of commission. If you stay out in long range and trade bombs (punches and kicks) with someone, the bigger, stronger, faster, younger person usually wins. On the other hand, when we talk about slamming our head into someone’s face, or driving a knee into the groin, size and strength become irrelevant.
