    Great stuff! If the opponent is moving in range with hand and feet combinations and immediately moving out again do you just keep walking around the person?

    • Ben Sterling says:

      It depends, typically you’ll simply walk away from them. They’ll have to chase you down if they want to get to you and in doing so they’ll overcommit. They’ll have to lot of forward momentum that will prevent them from immediately moving away.

      With a little more practice and understanding of space, you change the arc of your circle as you walk around them. This will allow you to create or close distance in a very deceptive way. So when the opponent tries to close or retreat they will be either closer or farther than they meant to be and you can capitalize on that error.
