    so I was sparring in the gym today and Ive been working my kicks on the heavy bag alot. I realized that I was stopping at the moment of impact insead of blowing through the heavy bag. One of the reasons why alot of people say you shouldnt train on the heavy bag alone and you should do alot of shaddow boxing as well.

    I was sparring and then noticed I wasnt throwing my hip all the way through the kicks. I was doing the same damn thing i was doing on the heavy bag. So then I figured out what I was doing wrong mid spar and then tried something different. My freind through a lead leg front kick I blocked it and parried his foot away and countered with the round house and it hit his hamstring and I hear bam and he drops.

    Didnt think it was gonna be as hard as it was. We were training with out shin pads today to because the coach wanted us to condition are legs. Freind got me back later though. good times.

    Been having alot of trouble with my round house lately because I have long lanky legs. I was either jaming it up or was using crappy angles but I finally got used to finding my distance. Great day once I realized it

    mask = shin guard? :dunno: i don't really know kickboxing/mt terminology.

    i hate when i sit through a class and feel like i didn't learn/accomplish anything, just a shitty training session :hs: glad i don't have 'em too often.


    edit : after seeing sylva's reply, i'm starting to think the ripper was the one who posted that humongous full head gear mask awhile back?
