I am 6'7" tall, 300+ lbs. and I find it difficult to effectively pull off anything but the most basic boxing combos, palm strikes, low-line kicks, and clinches/groundfighting, against a "live" opponent.




And this is a problem because... Seriously, I have seen professional fighter use about as much and do very well. Randy Couture is a prime example.I never saw him throw a kick in a fight until his match with Tim Silvia and he has had a very successful career using just boxing and wrestling. Throw in the low line kicks that you already have and your all set.

Good point tribal. No law says anything you use HAS to be complex. Simple techniques win fights all the time.
