    i tried to remember to keep my chin down, i probably didn't always do it, and you're right, we're not doing that when we're doing hand trapping drills. i do want to clean that up for myself

    That is why I wouldnt bother to re invent what you do. But keeping your chin tucked will really help you not get hurt in these tournaments

    Have you considered Sanda/Sanshou?

    That's basically what you're trying to do.

    As much as I hate the Man-Up Stand Up rules set, your clinch striking didn't look that bad. Framed out with your hands to make space then threw short punches as the guy tried to come back in.

    Since almost no pure striking gyms work the nuances of clinch striking in NY it's something good to know. I wish that you would have thrown some knees and that the rules would have let you stay clinched longer so we could have seen how good you really were with it.

    I could critique your outside striking but the fact that you showed some genuine and applicable skills in something Chun claims to be good at makes you the best Chunner I've ever seen fight. Plus, it's a little silly to focus on the negative in someone's first competition. Everyone makes a lot of mistakes their first time out that they probably don't make in practice.

    Kyokushin and knockdown karate guys don't lean their heads back and they don't train with gloves. I know part of it is unfamiliarity with getting hit but I also wonder if their isn't something inherently wrong with the posture that makes it so prevalent. Literally no other striking style (done well) does this.

    Are you not rounding on a logical conclusion here?

    What now? I'm perfectly serious. Leaning back while you're fighting is not a great idea in any situation. Yet almost every time I see accomplished KF guys fight they are leaning back once the fight starts. I am claiming that it may be more than unfamiliarity with getting hit.

    Yes I know, and that leads to the logical conclusion of...... "cough, ahem ineffective bullshit , cough cough"

    Let me be more direct. DV7, do you think leaning back is a good idea? If not do you think something besides lack of sparring experience may be leading to this propensity?
