Hello all, Hope this topic has not been posted before. I know Balintawak is known for being an extremely close quarter system, but I am curious how do all you Balintawak practitioners close the gap from a largo mano game? Footwork is trained, but, IMHE, it is not overly emphazised. Long range is also not a range that is often played in Balintawak. Ultimately its up to the practitioner and all systems can work in all ranges, but I would like to know how fellow Balintawakans bridge this gap with a resisting opponent.
