    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I would've said stepping in to cut the distance on a roundhouse, getting the thigh! blocking with the elbow hand a behind ear, punch to face/superman punch, but if kicker doesn't use much chambering, he shoots it forward from the hip, could you step in on time?

    I find MOST people drop their hands closer to their neck/chest level when commit a hard roundhouse kick so exchanging to an open face is still the good end of the deal.

    The best block for a roundhouse is your temple.

    Daniel: I don't know if I know enough karate.

    Miyagi: Feeling correct.

    Daniel: You sure know how to make a guy feel confident.

    Miyagi: You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.

    That picture should totally be used as motivation to make sure people keep their hands up. Just flash it at them whenever their hands start dropping.

    Starting off in WC?

    One question. Do you guys spar?
    If no...leave
    If yes... 1. Train your ass off, get in the best shape you possibly can
    2. Take jujitsu, or wrestling, or judo to cross train
    3. Take boxing or Muay Thai to cross train
    4. Copy and Paste: YouTube- Siu Lim Tao - G.M. Ip Chun This way you can learn and practice Sil Lum Tao before your teacher teaches it to you!
    5. Absorb what you like from WC but use what youve learned from #2 and #3 against your WC classmates.

    My honest opinion on WC is its good but boxing is better. WC kicks are pretty weak but It does teach your hands to be coordinated.

    as someone who was rolling around on the ground while everything in my vision turned white after getting nailed with a roundhouse to the liver, id disagree there. ive never gotten as wacked out from a punch to the head. and ive been punched in the head pretty fucking hard.

    Dont take advice from people who get hit a lot! Like Alex!

    Blocking is still getting hit in my opinion. Blocking should be your last option. The best way to block anything is to move out of the way (footwork). Since you are new I suggest you learn and drill proper footwork to evade attacks and counter, such as a pendulum movement. Get your body out of the way and immediately come back to counter. Your opponent cannot hit what is not there. I guarantee they will not teach the pendulum in WC. They do it in TKD but TKD guys tend to not keep their hands up. Have you heard of the ginga in Capoeira? Im not advocating Capoeira for real fighting but the ginga teaches you the same idea as the pendulum.
