    My girlfriend came with her camera to take pictures to put on our BJJ clubs facebook group(still havn't resized those yet) but afterwards me and a friend got into some Muay Thai sparing and got some good pics.

    Yes, this hurts. Yes, ninjas can get punched too.

    I /almost/ look like a Muay Thai fighter here, but don't be confused. It is ninja all the way.

    Flying Knee!(that didn't hit shit)

    Right Hook/haymaker that actually hit.

    Here is his answer
    [​IMG]

    Getting pushed into the corner, I just planted and let the right go. No clue if it hit...

    Leg check. You see how I'm dropping my hands to help block? yea, don't do that.

    Him being bigger made him way better in the clinch, I spent most of my time trying(and sometimes failing) to keep him away from me.

    Puch kicks can take the breath out of you, or take your balls off. Thank god he wasn't 4 inches down, i wasn't wearing a cup.

    Him checking my kick. See how hes keeping his hands up? I should do that more often.

    Great pics.

    I've got a killer video of me blocking a back kick with my face that I need to digitize.

    I did Tae Kwon Do for 7 years, I still carry tons of bad habbits. I've been doing Muay Thai for about 2 years now, but I boxed for 4 years too.

    Yea, I've got 13 Am fights.

    And I don't give a fuck if he is a brown belt or a white belt, I'm not on the fucking ground rolling around. I didn't come here to be critized, esspeically when I pointed out the fault my self. I could have only posted the pictures where I was doing well and made my self out to be some kind of kickboxing god. I'm not that amazing but I thought some of the pictures were cool.

    I did Karate and TKD for 16 years before MMA and I still downblock kicks and get jacked in the face for it, so you're not alone.

    Don't forget to point your toes towards the ground whenever you check a kick.

    Also...being a smaller guy myself...when you find yourself in a clinch...fucking punch your way out of it with short uppercuts and hooks to the body. We're lethal in close fighting range...but we get thrown around like rag dolls if we try to battle it out in a clinch.

    Great pics...and I give you credit for sparring pro-style (no headgear). Was that light sparring or did you two tag each other hard?

    I'm a sucker for a leg kick and then an immediate head kick, I eat it almost every time. You think that getting smacked in the face would teach out pretty quick but old habbits are hard to break.
