Fighting Bigger Opponents

In 2004, I came out of retirement (after 2 years out) and fought in the Shidokan World Open 8 Man Welterweight (170 lbs) tournament. In the semi and final matches I fought fighters who were physically bigger and stronger (fighters who fight as heavy as 185 lbs). I want to share some strategies that I use when fighting a larger opponent. In this clip you will see me cutting off my opponent's power by getting inside of his reach. I use movement to stay out of harms way when he presses forward. You will see jamming techniques to get a clinch.
