What do you guys think the most important range to train is? I know that all are needed, but which would (or do) you choose to focus on and why?

Interested to hear everyones take on it.

Clinch IMHO. This range decides where the fight goes (or stays, LOL).

Great thread Chris.

That is a very good question,

The short answer is the clinch. The reason IMO is because it's the pivotal range. If you want to keep a fight standing or take it to ground, your clinch game will largely determine how this goes, does it not?

The longer answer though will sound as if I am contradicting that somewhat. The truth is, all ranges are interdependent. Your stand-up game will facilitate your clinch. Your clinch will facilitate your ground game. Your ground game will facilitate your stand-up game. It's a big wheel that keeps revolving.

There is a lot more I'd like to add to this, but I'll leave it for now. Let the rest of the folks have their say.

I would also say Clinch, since I'm more of a puncher. Having good skills in the clinch/trapping range will allow me to continue to use my fists.

I say the Clinch because it is the range where your deadliest tools come into play. Headbutt, knees, & elbows all the way.

And ofcourse that most ancient and deadliest of technique the nipple twister.
