Footwork is key to any fighters success. Chris Romulo explains why great footwork is so crucial when training combat sports.

As a young, lost soul with very little direction and aspirations in my life, I found myself in a street scrap that left me with a broken nose, fractured eye socket and a crushed ego. Till this day I am grateful to have the ability to talk about the experience since I could have easily lost my life.

With the 8 weapons we have as Nak Muay’s, we can all imagine even one of those tools being able to stop our opponent dead in his/her tracks and not having your win or loss being decided by 3 people with differences of opinions.
