There are certain types of opponents in sparring who are very difficult to defeat including those who are very aggressive, those who are good at closing the distance quickly and those who hit and run. This article will provide a few simple to use counterattacking solutions for these types of opponents.
Against an Opponent who is Good at Closing the Distance
