    thanks guys , i will take your advice very seriously.

    about the leg checks i did manage to catch quite a few of his leg kicks with my knee, so i knew that hurt him somewhat. but i got caught with a few inside leg kicks.

    but in the 2nd round when he threw that high kick that connected, i misjudged it n checked for a leg kick instead n got kicked in the head.

    i have this problem i cant seem to judge whether the kicks r gonna be low / mid / high? n sometimes when the opponent teeps i end up thinking its a kick n checking.

    how should i work on this? drills?

    thanks once again everyone

    Hey stone,
    There are a couple of gyms I can name off hand. Like Punch Academy, Hilltop or BXG Boxing and Fitness. As far as i know, these gyms are pretty good. You can continue your personal training, but you need more exposure and someone who can teach you more, thats how you're gonna get better.

    Just a link you can follow if you need to find more gyms, http://muaythai.sg/muay_thai_gyms_singapore

    This is crap. Tons of great Muay Thai fighters never lift weights. Muay Thai gets you in the best shape for Muay Thai. If you have a soccer background I'm sure your cario is there and you know how to run. You probably just need to spar longer rounds so your body acclimates to Muay Thai. A good example is if you fight 3 x 3 minute rounds train 4 x 4 minute rounds.

    You can't learn how to do/drill this stuff online. You need to get to a gym where they show you how to drill this stuff.

    I think there are many ways to get where he needs to go. Your way will definitely work, and is probably the best way to get it done because you get skill training as well as fitness. However, I have to assume that the guy is doing MA training. My padwork rounds are 5x3, and I still feel it's beneficial to do conditioning sessions that solely focus on fitness without working on skill.

    Yohan, what makes you think his fitness is "poor" did you watch round 3? Except for the knockdown/injury between videos he looks pretty sharp late in the fight.

    most of the guys i know personally who are title holders also have a weightlifting regime, especially the HWs. Not that weights are gonna get you in good cardio shape for MT though
