    I'm one of Sinister's students and I can tell you that Locche has better positioning and inside fighting than modern defensive genius Floyd Jr. It's Locche understanding of this very concept that allows him to do what he does. If you ask me I think him being feather fisted resulted in a higher mastery of the inside game and use of angles. Because he pretty much didn't have a choice.

    Another interesting thing about Locche is he was a heavy smoker and seldom ran.

    What do you exactly mean by positioning? Curious to also know more about this guy. He has a mean lead hook to the body also which I wonder how he gets so much success with this and not get countered after time and time again

    Interested In reading this one day too, some of the moves locche makes blow my mind.

    A little off topic but wasn't able to post this in the closed thread, does anyone have a link to the thread where sinistar discussed how to use the double end bag to develop correct reactions?

    Weird thing is, to me, that Locche always seems to be right over his front foot, and yet he's a defensive genius. I truly don't know how he got away with the things he did in the ring.

    press "play" on the video, and ignore the punching. just watch the feet and legs

    Well there isn't much footage of him available. People forget or get caught up with punching to figure out your legs are part of the game too. Where he moves is very important, pretty much was DoctorTaco said. Another great fighter who understand positioning is Jose Napoles, one of my favorite fighters check him out.

    A visual example is; Think of punches as knives/daggers. You never want to be in the direct line of fire or you will die. You move around them limit the target area of your vital organs.

    Bingo!

    This. It is always blew my mind when people get pissy in my threads when i said i am trying to practice defense using footworks and positioning rather than hands up in high guard. That's not exotic, that's fundamental. What's the problem with it?

    I think you can either PM him or make a seperate thread about it.

    nuke,

    and u wonder why people continually attack u. you showed horrible footwork and positioning when u were fighting those kk guys. u were in perfect range for their kicks, u moved poorly and your head was more or less stationary most of the time from what i recall.

    u are just feeding the trolls with comments like that.

    But...but... His toe was pointed at their centerline the whole.. That takes care of positioning by itself, no need to actually position yourself in an advantageous angle... Wait what???

    Now now let's not derail the thread here. My rant was even refer to periods and videos way before the KK video, mind you. It is not something "new and just now". And i think you forgot the circumstances of the KK video too. And i will stop my explanation at that.

    you are baiting people to attack u with post like this. that is why a lot of people here get annoyed at u. u feed trolls cause you continually feel the need to defend yourself and your actions.

    i don't care what the circumstances were with the kk fight. regardless of the rules, you fought poorly and didn't show anything from your training besides a proper stance. but that is besides the point.

    I don't think anyone says that's the entirety of positioning, but that little detail is like the key for a basic understanding of defensive positioning. Learning to threaten the center line with my lead hand and foot completely changed my ability to spar, and gave me so much more confidence than I had. I went from floundering to swimming almost right away with just that little detail.

    I dont wanna derail the thread, but I said that because nuke said in the other thread that the only thing he had to do to practice positioning, was to point the toe to the centerline (I know I dont do this conciously while sparring btw), that it wasnt a mindblowing concept so no need to practice it on real partners, he could do it all on this reflex bag...
