The distance between you and the attacker is the crucial factor. It can help you with what you can or cannot do. So is it good to make the distance or get close to the attacker?
You cannot say directly this is good or this is bad. It depends on the situation and what you want to do. Sometimes getting close to the attacker can give you the advantage and sometimes if you make the distance, that will give you an advantage.
For example, if the attacker hits you with a stick, it is better to get in. You get into the side while using your hands to parry and grab the stick. Then you go for the counter-attack. You see the attacker is throwing the stick and you do not have enough time to get in.
You should get back and make the distance to defend yourself at that time. But before attacking again with the stick, you should get in and stop the attacker. Otherwise, the attacker will keep attacking you with the stick, and eventually hit you.
You see the attacker is drawing his weapon, for example, a knife. If you get in and stop the attacker before drawing this weapon, you have a better chance to survive. Of course, you have to know what you are doing. Otherwise, only getting in without knowing what to do is like committing suicide.
So in order to get in and stop the attacker from pulling his knife, you should not be too far away from the attacker. If you are standing far away, it will take time to get close to the attacker and the attacker might have already drawn his weapon. You can consider making more distance and run if you can.
I think whether you are close to the attacker or be far away, you can use both situations to your advantage, it is up to you and what you want to do to protect yourself. What do you think about that?
