Hi guys, After months of constantly changing my mind between the two stances, I think I should simply suit it to my opponents style. 1. Boxing stance: Shoulders in line, feet in line, 45 degrees to the side. I feel its great for mobility and footwork. Jab is great in this stance, faster and harder, and cross is more powerful. The down side is that a good kicker will kick the shit out of my front leg, and its not really aggressive (which I like to be), and not too good for takedowns. Plan: I will use it only against guys I think are better grapplers and Im a better striker, where controling the distance and footwork is number 1 priority. 2. Bas Rutten style stance: All facing forward; shoulders and feet. A more powerful left hook and right uppercut, and much more aggressive style. Very easy clinching or takedowns after a punch setup. The down side is that I have no Jab and weaker cross, worse footwork and mobility, and more important, the stance is so much "forward" that I always end up in the clinch, which I dont want against a better grappler. Plan: I will use it only against guys I think are better strikers where aggressive punching will setup a takedown, or at least a clinch. I would really like to hear you thoughts about this, because it bothering me for a too long of a time. Any help is appreciated.
