    Welps. Hi.

    So, after already making a few nonsense posts here and there (well maybe except one about a certain veteran who needs to get strong) I figured I'd introduce myself.

    I'm 26 years old and, after just wanting to take up a martial art for a very long time, finally started doing thaiboxing in a very small school in Würzburg (in the south of Germany). Training's actually pretty good. Our trainer's been doing thaiboxing for 20+ years after noticing in his youth that tkd didn't quite cut it for him. He's also a bouncer so we're doing just a small section of self-defense-oriented moves or holds and a little de-escalation at the beginning of every training session.

    So there you go.

    Basically, trying to persuade someone with a high aggression level out of trying to start a fight. I'm really not the best person to explain this.

    Palms out , low shoulders and all that. The first thing I recognise when someone is trying to sucker punch me. De-escalation my ass.

    Interestingly, that's what I've been wondering. When I first started I thought it was interesting to learn those self-defense kind of things... now I'm just waiting for us to take on the boxing gloves. It's better when there's someone there who I've been training with a couple of times, since then we're usually skipping the self defense part and just go to the thaiboxing techniques right away.

    I actually was serious by saying I couldn't feel more welcome. I had lurked long enough to get a grasp of what you're referring to.
