He Challenged People On The Street To Punch Him In The Face And They Could Barely Touch Him
The best defense against a punch is not to be there.
FightSmartTrav posted an interesting video some time ago that demonstrates something that a lot of people miss when it comes to martial arts: the incredible power of not having your body in the same place as somebody's punch or kick.
That sounds obvious, but as you watch the video, notice that Trav is simply bobbing, ducking, and weaving as he frustrates his opponents' attempts to break their hands on his head. At least one puncher runs out of steam pretty quickly. Had Trav been trading punches with them, it seems unlikely they would have lasted more than a few seconds. As you can see, footwork is the basis of any good martial arts training.
H/T: Lost At E Minor.
