Survival Tip #69
Step into the Punch
If you find yourself in a fist fight that you can’t avoid in the Primal Age, always remember to step into a punch. Everything in your body will tell you to step away from an incoming punch. It’s natural for your body to try to get away, and you should go that route if you can avoid the punch. However, there will be times that you can’t get clear of a swing, and by stepping into it you will reduce the force of the blow. Full extension is when a punch has the most velocity, so by meeting the punch sooner you are reducing the amount of damage it will do. Of course, you are still being punched, so it will hurt, but it will hurt less.
