Training to fight and feeling comfortable in all distances is extremely important in any confrontation. However, the most important distance and ironically the most neglected distance is the “pocket”.
This distance is when you are close enough to hit and get hit. That's where the real fight starts, that's where the damage is done, and that is where you need to feel the most comfortable. Be brilliant at the places most people are stupid and you will be dangerous. Start practicing and getting in the habit of fighting up close. Krav Maga literally translates to close combat because it focuses on exactly this distance in fighting; the only distance that will realistically win a street fight.
