    i been giving up on these bc leg kicks are easier to land, also very effective, and little risk of getting totally pwned on the elbow. anone have any advice?

    well, yea it hurts like fuck to get an elbow in the shin/foot. just pick yer spots and dont always throw it up there. keep hitting with the leg kicks, and suprise him/her ( if thats how you roll ) with one to the midsection or the face ftw.

    ask your instructor if you're doing it right

    A Thai kick should almost be at a 45 degree angle upwards to your target, not parellel to the ground. You get more power going in a straight line at a diagonal angle rather than "lifting" your leg up then bringing it to the body parallel, if you know what I mean. You can sneak it under the arm sometimes when you do it right (at an angle).

    For kicks to the body you want it to angle upward like that. For leg kicks, they tend to angle downward a bit. Try setting up your kicks to the body with punches to the head. If you get him backing up and really covering up, thats a perfect opportunity to land a good body shot, kick or punch. Also try creating angles. I.E. jab, cross, circle out a little, then kick.

    BTW djvash I love the new av. I like how there are little wrestlers on his shirt.
