I am now trying out some local schools and trying to decide if I want to return to my old martial art, Muay Thai or if I want to give judo a try. Anyways guys thanks for all of the advice.
    Best wishes to you!

    So, I just had my first sparring class in about 4 years! I felt like I was about to throw up half of the time, but also felt great afterwards and am going to enter the NC State Games in two weeks.

    I'm 6'3" 270lbs, 23yrs old, 3rd dan WTF style.

    My favorite kicks are the defensive jumping back kick, and axe kick.

    I need help with my running kicks and combinations though, i feel like they are sloppy and slow. Anyone have any good techniques or drills to work on these things? I'm fairly quick for my size and can usually beat my opponent off the line for one kick, then my speed leaves me.

    One of the juniors we have at my school is heading to JO's at the end of the month and he was saying that headshots are now 3 points, spin kicks to the head are 4, and receiving a standing 8-count awards your opponent 5 points. Is this true?

    Prob the best thing for you to do is get in close and use your hands.
    How you get in close, well that's for you to figure out. You could try using your legs to close the gap and then go from there

    He's talking about Olympic Taekwondo sparring.

    Getting in close and using his hands won't do him any good.
