Should i switch partners???
Alrite this is a noob question but bare with me......
I am relatively new at muay thai and its only been a few months for me. So far i have been always partnered up with a friend of mine during training.
Today we were doing some combos and i got paired off with another dude. Mind you i am 5'10 170lbs and he is 6'8 270lbs. We are supposed to go light but he goes pretty hard to almost full force soo much soo that my elbows and shins are hurting from all the kick and hook checking i did today, i almost thought my shin was broken at one point.
Am i being a ***** and should just continue training with him in the hopes that my elbow and shin will desensitize enough to stand getting hit from this beast. I see the advantages of going full force in sharpening my reflexes, though i fear that i will be a pinata for a guy that big untill my skills get better.
Or should i tell my instructor to pair me off to someone closer to my size and weight.
