Why ma-ai is a good idea

I lifted this video from the Fist of the Red Rebel site as a primo example of why ma-ai is a good idea. You simply can't afford to stand around within reach of guys like this, and when you get down to it, you can't ever tell if the guy in front of you has this kind of skill. This is why you'd better be moving as the bad guy first begins to move into ma-ai and you'd better be continually working to move away or behind him, keep him offbalance, and do not stop moving to do a technique to him. My recent matra applies here:
Do not engage. Refuse to engage. Roll the ball, brush off, and disengage.

  1. Lol. Cool video. If i see that guy on the street, i think i'll just take three slow steps backwards, turn around, and then run away as fast as i can. Definitely not someone you want to engage with.
