In sparring and fighting I tend to be more of a stand back, work the leg kicks, work the jab and then go inside on my own terms and get back out as soon as I've thrown what I feel to be an effective combo if I'm not going for the clinch. Aggressive/brawler type fighters who wade in throwing lots of hooks and knees I find the most difficult to deal with as I'm not one for brawling. My favourite technique (and the only one I've really tried and tested) is to stick the jab and then circle away to my right (being a south paw). Any other techniques you use on dealing with these types of fighters you've found to be effective that you'd care to share? BTW I am talking about Muay Thai but Boxing, Kickboxing or whatever other style of striking responses are welcome.
