Okay, I know there's a common assumption that fighting is easier if you're taller than your opponent because your reach excedes his, but I've been sparring with a friend of mine who uses a lot of head movement and looping right hands. My defense isn't superb, but I can slip punches if I see them coming. Problem is, he's so short I lose sight of him. To make matters worse, I get hit and go into my peakaboo guard and limits my sight below my hands. So here's the question: Should I be bending down at his level. It seems like a feasible solution because not only would I be able to see the punches better but it's more easy for me to get under the punches. So: Am I giving away my height advantage by lowering to his level?
