^^Topic.
I find myself getting that "rocked" feeling when I spar, and am not yet at the point where I feel good about getting hit in the face. Does this get better with time, or am I just not cut out for Muay Thai? I don't think I would ever want to be a fighter, but I like the training and want to continue, I just wonder if I will ever be really comfortable in sparring since I don't have a head like Mark Hunt. Thoughts?

1. Avoid getting hit in the face.

2. Avoid the notion that you should "feel good" about getting hit in the face.

3. Carry on.

well theres nothing nice about getting punched in the face so thats a pretty normal reaction

...and if you do start feeling good about getting hit in the head, it's probably the outer covering of your brain disintergrating. stop and desist from boxing immediately if said feeling occurs.
or it's the drugs kicking in, and you should probably stop boxing then, too.


i think what you mean is, "how long did it take for you to be able to recover quickly after getting rocked by being punched in the head."
or maybe "how many punches to the noggin did it take for you to realize having your guard up was a good thing?"

for the first question, i have a weak chin, so i get rocked pretty easily by hard hits, but i can recover from lighter hits faster than the average joe. when i'm drunk and belligerent, you should probably have a baseball bat on hand. apparantly i don't feel much pain then.

for the second, about 17.

Hm, I don't think I phrased my question well. The situation is: I am not good at sparring (at least right now, my experience is very limited), I get hit, it doesn't feel good, now I am feeling apprehensive about sparring. It seems like I can defend somewhat, but eventually I get backed into a corner, or I get cut off when circling, and I get hit with a mean hook or something like that. I am not sure if my problem is a lack of experience, something I am doing during the exercise, me personally, or what. Forget I ever said "feel good" about being hit in the face.

Your gonna get tagged ... your gonna walk into jabs like a dumbass ... your gonna circle into hooks once in a while ... it is just part of it . If it sucks ... learn from it .

Keep your hands up and record your sparring sessions so you can really see what you are doing right or wrong . Eventual you will get sick of watching yourself looking like a tard and get it right . I am almost there . I figure four more years of sparring and rolling and I won't look like a **** up .

I swear it will help your game .

You might just have to accept that getting socked in the jaw is one of the shitty parts of learning how to fight .




sorry if this doesn't apply I am drunk as hell and it makes sense to me

backfist is sort of right. sadly, but true.
however, that doesn't mean we can't try to isolate any specific issues you may have. keep spilling the details, sir.


i'm starting to drink myself. just finished a 4 pack of redbull and 1/4 of a fifth of ketel one. what's your poison, fist?
love the pack of cigs with the pope hat i'm apparently imagining on your monkey, btw.

It is just a normal everyday squid on my head people ... no pope hat , and I have no idea why you would think I would advotcate smoking by having a cartoon charecter do it .


anyway I only post in fucked up fonts when I am partaking in absinthe ... it was a suggestion made to another by another member ... but I only remember it was either Anna or Kid who it was suggested to .

Honestly it isn't all that much fun when I am feeling talkitive . And the bright green text signifying absinthe , just ends up looking juvinile and pretensiouse ... or how ever it is spelled ..

pretentious, i believe.

****, i wish i had absinthe. it's just SO FREAKING EXPENSIVE in the US to get imported.
so, do you drink it in shots or make that sugar water/absinthe mix (leush/loosh, w/e)?


on the subject, yes, getting hit in the face is bad.
it's just when the person who made this thread is absent, we have a creative license to talk about drinking... i did ask a question that delays the posts made here w/o the reply of the person questioned.

Don't feel like a ***** if you ask your training partners to go light on your head, either. It can be very negative for your training if you are learning to fear your opponents (and it can even cause you to lose the desire to train). Be sure to communicate what you are comfortable with.

In my training, we start with getting hit in the chest. I've been surprised at how I've been able to move from hard shots there to some light shots to the face without losing my posture, will, aggression, or balance. However, if we started including regular shots to the face, or anything harder than an occasional light smack, you can be sure I'd close up, hunch down, cover needlessly, and resort to never learning how to un-pussify myself.

The first rule of P.A. (pussies anonymous) is admitting that you're a *****. :icon_blac

The right thing while sparring especially at the beginning is to keep your front arm almost fully extended. Also you should always keep your rear leg on foot's forepart.

I thought I'd throw it in there that my doctor told me that I'm going to get teh braindamage from doing boxing. It's not as much the big heavy blows that rock you (though they'll do it too), it's the small ones that add up after a while. You'll appearantly start to gradually lose social skills and such, and get depressed, etc.

...Good thing I don't do boxing, I just get hit in the head during MMA practices. (I'm very bad at it) :icon_chee

I never minded getting tagged, but it could be your training partner being a dick and taking out his frustrations on a beginner. The best way to test this, is to punch him in the face. If he gets pissed and starts wailing on you then you its him being a dick. But if he takes it and even gives you a little smile then his alright in my book.

Being relaxed helps absorb the hits as well, roll with the punches dont try resist them with your head.
