    Ghost's Tuesday Night (Kyokushin) Smackdown

    I promised content, and I'm a man of my word. Here's the first round I got. Me vs. a teenager that doesn't speak English.



    Yup. I still suck.

    Green belt has some tricky feet and some ingrained good nature and mutual well being. You look loose enough, it is KK so the cues I look for in confortablity aren't there to my eye all KK looks stiff... but you looked comfy enough but crispy. You kept things simple, aggressive, basic, and technical. Maybe a little to much go for the situation but *shrugs* the people watching seemed to think all was well so.

    Hell yeah, looked like fun... I wanna kick people ... :( ...

    There a round 2?
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past."

    Yup, vs a much, much larger opponent. Green belt used to throw those kicks with real bad intentions, and he only stopped after a few... Incidents. Other video is still uploading and it's... A lot more one-sided, and not in my favor.

    1.05 When he threw that back kick and tried to spin it into a roundhouse you missed a grand opportunity for a right teep into his chest that would have knocked him on his back without much force. As i saw him try to double spin my own right leg twitched a little bit lol

    Keep up the training.. good job

    For all the sadists out here, round 2. Someone reacted strongly to a poorly timed oblique kick, and the laws of physics came into play. No worries, we're good now. And yes. I really need to get better at checking leg kicks.

    Someone has very clearly talked to him about not rocking people with his kicking combos, he was very controlled and polite in the first round.

    Are you aloud to clinch a bit in Kyokushin or not? How about knees?

    A little more pivot on the front foot when kicking with the rear leg. More power and less destruction on the knee over time.

    All in all, good work.

    Knees yes, clinching no. First round had some missed opportunities for knees. Second round? My legs are short enough as it is, not landing that kind of thing vs someone that much larger than me without grabbing.
