    That's an interesting subject for another thread, if you're willing. I'd be like to know more about it.

    The girl is great regardless of any error anybody can point out. She's 10, a year older than my daughter.

    None of the kids her age who take kickboxing hit the pads like that.

    Having read more about her background I'm pretty sure she's punching exactly the way she was taught to punch, whatever anybody might think is wrong with it.

    No headgear???
    This is Thailand. She's already 2 years older than some of the fighters out of my gym. The crowd loves it. One of my friends (who's been here a little longer than me) told me an 11 year old started crying after an accidental kick to the nuts and while he was bent over the crowd was screaming "Hit him now! now! Hit him! Go!" to the other kid.

    Short answer: I don't know for sure -- it's never been explained to me.

    I do know that it's easy to convert a punch into an elbow if the elbow is already up. Perhaps that's the reason.

    As much of a fan of pedobear as I am, he doesn't belong here, unless he wants a flying knee
