    ya know, I gain nothing from sfe taking up muay thai, but doing so should help him fill in a lot of gaps I see in his standup game.

    Like I mentioned, I learned a lot of lessons in my fight in that tourney. I will be working on them a long time.

    Muay Thai is awesome, but I prefer Karate (for many reasons other than fighting). I don't want to be a pro fighter (or am fighter for that matter), I just want to be better than the average Joe at protecting myself.

    Yeah, he needed 90 days. He fought with a black eye in his last fight.

    I talked to the ring doc before the tourney started. He didn't seem like the sharpest tool in the shed. He let the guy who took second in my division fight his last fight with a broken hand.

    His hand:

    sfe even if you do not plan on competing in kickboxing I would still check out a Muay Thai gym. If only to get a feel for the way they move and more specifically the way they kick.

    I noticed you when you guys were kicking each other in the legs you were using your instep, if you opponent were to check the kick you could wind up with a broken foot.

    If you crosstrain, even just to experience something new or to incorporate/learn something that may work better for you is not betraying or abandoning your style.

    It's a Kyokushin thing, whoever wins with the most damage to their body wins.

    My style is all about toe kicking, not instep kicking. Again, the clip was us just mucking around, we didn't want to hurt each other (the clip was taken about a week or so before our tourney).

    I know all about proper leg kicks, I lost my fight due to being nailed in the thigh by my opponent. It felt like he was trying to chop down a tree. After reviewing the DVD of the event, it was the best thigh kick of the day. Regardless of weight class.

    And I agree about crosstraining. We're working on it but again, our focus is Karate.

    I know what you mean If a hadn't trained Enshin even a bad leg kick would have taken the fight out of me. An inner thigh kick would have left crying on the floor.

    As for kicking with your toe, Whaa...?
