Closing the Distance and Close Range Combat
This is practical martial arts at its best! In this DVD, Master Instructor Tony Massengill presents the keys to effective Close Range Combat. Covered are such skills as, Creating Bridge Contact for control of the opponent. The famous “Inch-Punch” from Wing Chun and the differences in the way Bruce Lee demonstrated the technique compared to the way it is actually used in fighting. The “Returning Punch”, a devastating strike which is nearly impossible to defend. An analysis of the anatomical differences of the vertical and horizontal punch, and which is more structurally sound. The shifting knee strike and close range kicking to destroy the opponent’s base. All this and much…much more!
Sifu Tony Massengill brings his unique blend of over 43 years in the Martial Arts combined with 25 years working as a Police Officer, Firefighter and Paramedic, to his teaching style. This is practical experience from the street, not theory based only from Dojo training and sport martial arts.
