    From the description of her last fight, she sounds like she knows what she's doing

    Women's Amateur MT Light Welterweight
    Marie Sturm, Lake View, IA, USA (1-0, 140 5'4", 23, 01-03-1983, Pete Peterson, (712) 792-8178) defeated Katie Vogel, Minneapolis, MN, USA (3-2, 140, 5'6", 26, 11-03-1979, Greg Nelson, (763) 560-5696) by split decision 28-29, 30-27 & 29-28.
    The second women's fight of the card also started out strong. Vogel tried to use her reach advantage to keep Sturm away and then throw an overhand right. Sturm was able to swipe Vogel's hand out of the way and respond with upper cuts and jabs to the body and head. As the round continued, the fight got closer with short clenches with a lot of knees. Sturm was able to stop Vogel with push kicks twice before the bell. During the second round Vogel used her height more effectively and attacked to the head. Sturm answered with a leg attack. Vogel fought solidly even though the crowd shouted "Roo" in support of their hometown favorite. Round three began fast with Sturm landing a spinning backfist to Vogel's head. Vogel then tried to regain control with knees in the clench. Combinations dwindled to single techniques until half way through the final round when both fighters turned up the gas. The last 10 seconds left both ladies fighting for the win. Katie Vogel and Marie Sturm fought in what was the closest and most evenly matched fight of the night, the split decision was given to Sturm.

    Roo Strum certainly looks beefy enough, but is she dropping her guard to swat at a kick in the second picture?

    If so, remember that every time you thai kick someone's leg to a nonfunctional charlie horsed state, an angel gets his wings.

    And every time you follow up with a punch to the face because the person swatted at said thai kick, Satan downloads more porn.

    I think she was attempting to catch the kick, though it's hard to say

    it actually looks like she was throwing her own kick at the same time just so happens to swing her arm down looking like she was trying to catch or block the kick.

    Even if she's just dropping her arm to torque her kick a bit better, that's still probably not a good tactic, since it makes the consequences of her opponent successfully crashing the kick worse. I mean, is a little extra power on your kick worth increasing the chances you'll take one on the jaw?

    If she's covering with her shoulder properly then it's unlikely that she'd get punched off this kick.

    it really looks as though she's attempting a catch/counter kick there. If she was swinging her arm out to counterbalance her kick her body and arm would be in totally different positions.

    Yeah, I'd have to agree that it dosen't look like that arm is torquing anything in that picture. It really looks more like some kind of grab attempt or swat to me.
