    while sparring with a guy who seemed a lot bigger yesterday. I guess at this school wearing your headgear and thick shin pads in the ring means you want to go hard. I came out throwing some soft jabs thinking we were going to go soft since I had a fight the next day (actually I was taking this guy's place) and immediately got hit with a powerful cross right in the nose. From then on I treated it as a fight but was in pure survival mode. The best I did was land almost all of my round houses which seemed to hurt my partner good but now my right instep is now swollen and I can hardly walk. The kicks were only like 90% so I might've injured it while doing the bags beforehand.

    So much for fighting tomorrow although realistically I don't think I'm quite ready for an all stand up fight (my instructor says 2-3 mo's). My sparring partner's front kicks were brutal (my ribs are a bit sore) but I took his round houses with ease. If he had to be weary of being taken down things would've been way different.

    Do any of you guys who train at a "genuine" muay thai place ever do any rolling? I know the thai's are all about keeping their art pure so I'm afraid to even ask.

    You in Thailand or something? Cause I know there is like one BJJ school there and I believe one of the instructors is a purple belt.

    Just double leg him one day outa no where and put him in a RNC. And when he wakes up, ask him if he wants to roll or not. :bigthumb:

    As far as ring fighting goes I doubt they ever roll... But traditional muay thai has throws, trips/takedowns, and some wrestling/grappling.

    haha...I'll have to make sure my instructor isn't looking. :o

    I know one guy there has done some BJJ, but he seems to pop in and out of the gym like 5 mins at a time :mamoru:
