    Well, obviously there's been a talk or two, but I figure as long as it's going to take him to figure out how to rein it in a little, I might as well learn how to handle people like that.

    Thanks to everyone, I'll see how it goes tomorrow.

    I'm not talking to the boxer...I'm not looking at the boxer. A little pinch on the neck shows my Dominance!

    I am the boxing whisperer

    On a serious note...just tell him to go lighter in a polite way I'm sure that'll work

    Is he standing square or turned in? If he's standing like a boxer, show him why Muay Thai is a different sport, and kick his lead leg to ribbon.

    Plus, a lot of side standing fighters know how to deal with leg kicks. Its the art not the style that would make him eat leg kicks. A square standing boxer wouldn't know how to deal with them just as any side standing boxer.

    however, it does seem that guys who use a more square boxing stance tend to make an easier transition into mt.

    Most important advice is already given:

    - talk
    - sweep the leg
    - never try to outbox a boxer: it hurts (speaking from experience)

    One of the things that I learned from Savate and most other Kickboxing styles don't have (or don't practise) is kicking and boxing when backing-away. (no "created by the French jokes" please).

    It works wonderwell in confusing your opponent, but it's more difficult than it looks.

    Instead of backing-away and than moving-in for the kicking or boxing, the backing-away and then kicking/boxing have to be timed as one movement, it takes some training to get the timing right and than some practise to throw combo's while backing-out.

    But once you get it, it's fun to give your opponent a false sense of victory by letting him gain territorium while he's eating a first set of hard roundhouse kicks, than see his expression change when he comes to the conclusion that he has been set-up and back-away while you come in with hard kicks.
    Afterwards he will always hesitated when sparring with you, since gaining territorium =/= winning.

    I nearly got knocked out by an ammy boxer (12-1) last year when i tried to "just kick his leg". It turns out a good hook can counter a good leg kick :psyduck:. If the boxer has done just a few months cross training you'll need more than leg kicks.

    Try conversation first, if it doesn't work at least people will remember you asking to go a bit lighter should it escalate.

    Unless the dude is way taller than you a hook really shouldn't be the same range as a leg kick.
