Okay, so I was sparring, right? And I was doing pretty good at mid-range, but being a power puncher, I wanted to close the distance even more. So I did what I always do. I inch forward and block as necessary. And when I'm close enough to start pulverizing his body, he executes a hip toss and drops me on the floor. Now, this is perfectly okay. Throws are legal for those of the boxing/muay thai ilk. But they just tire me out like crazy. The second I get back up, I feel like Shane Carwin probably did after round 1. So here's what I'm basically trying to ask: 1. Do I need to be that close to land power shots to the body? 2. If so, how can I make sure that I don't get tossed around?
