Long time lurker, second time poster. I write for Fightland and cover combat sports and martial arts. Some of you might have seen my previews and breakdowns of most UFC events. Most of the time I'm talking about boxing or kickboxing technique and martial arts strategy overall, but sometimes I get the chance to throw in a karate piece, which I love!
My Study in Saifa was posted here a while ago, this article is basically a follow up with the idea that formal, ritualized movements can be adapted to more commonplace, realistic scenarios.
