This week at Crossing Fight School, we’ll be reviewing, among other things, the plays from Longpoint. This popular guard has many advantages and is a good compromise between offense and defense, allowing you to ward off what would otherwise hit you while presenting a threat.

What the text doesn’t say much about is that there are ways this guard can be defeated. As we shall see, some are rather violent, and others more subtle. Though these methods aren’t fool-proof, they offer a few different options when confronted with someone’s point.

See you all on Sunday.
