In my original post, I said this:
Well for one you say it was a boxing match yet you were throwing sidekicks?
Why throw sidekicks I know you think they look cool and everything but they aren't necessary, you don't need to be attacking his knees in a friendly match.
Just throw to his thighs or lower shins some roundhouses if thats what you are trying to do. Also I don't care who you are, if you are covering up there is a way around it.
We established the ground rules: no face, kidney, or groin shots, kicks to the shin and thigh only.
