Howdy, thought I'd link y'all to my first kickboxing fight I had tonight. This is the 2nd round of 3, I lost by split decision :( I learnt heaps though, had an awesome time

Good round. You looked decently sharp and you kept up a good work rate for most of the round. The first few matches can be tough. Good luck on the next one :)

Eheh, thanx mate...it's suprising how much it can take out of you compared to sparring :O

For sure. The huge adrenaline dump makes it so much more exhausting. It gets easier the more you fight though.

thanks man, I've been working on that recently except I was just running on instinct and haven't been doing it that long.

ahoy, i got the full fight now, so here it is:
please gimme some tips or tell me what ya think..
i know i need to work on keeping my left hand higher, lighter on my feet for checking faster, gotta throw more combos and stuff when i get in there, i always throw like 4 punches when sparring but when i got in there it was pretty much jab cross kick :P

you looked like you had the same problem i had which is not letting go with your punches, you looked like you were so tense you were almost pulling them back before they landed.
At the start you were doing real well until he hit you a couple of times then you shelled up until the last round, try not to be discouraged by getting hit but you should work on your head movement and your guard. i try and move my head all the time while punching (try being the main word there i guess :D) and with your guard, you want to put your gloves against the top of your head to form a wall. you had your arms up but there was no real protection, his punches were just brushing it out of the way.
Other than that you looked good but just tense and theres not a whole lot you can do about that except fight more. that guy you were fighting seemed a lot more relaxed and experienced, how man fights did he have?
Really though any advice you get won't help until you become more relaxed in the ring, i know all the technical stuff i had been working on went out the window when i fought.
They don't think it be how it is, but it do

Style: lol yet again more Judo !
Looked pretty good . I shell up and forget to move off and around after I get hit with a good couple shots . It was the only thing I saw that I felt I could comment on and Alex gave better , more detailed advise on how to fix it . I am still working on it .
I mainly just wanted to say thanks for the vids and stepping in the ring . I found it more fun to watch than the last few Kickboxing matches I have seen .
