While attending the Feile na Gaiscigh 2019 event in Dublin, I had the opportunity to do some sparring with Jordan Mock. This was a lot of fun, and also exceptionally tough, because Jordan is a very tall person indeed.
My approach to the fight, therefore, was to push myself to get into distances where I could do something constructive, rather than letting my taller opponent dictate the fight. Although I ended up landing a lot of hits onto his hands, my goal was to get in closer and make more meaningful actions towards his head and torso. I didn’t quite manage to achieve this, but I think I did fairly well at dictating the fight on my terms and not letting him bully me too much with his height and reach!
