Well, regarding the block, you're supposed to push his shin away on contact. If you go bone to bone, of course it's gonna hurt. Oh, don't just bring up the knee, move forward.

The MT kick is like a katana. The closer you get to the hip, the less it will hurt. Like if you're getting swung at with a katana, it's sometimes smarter to moves towards the handle instead of the tip where the force is maximum. With a low kick, bring up your knee and thrust it at his thigh like a diagonal knee. It's one of the MT secrets, making each defense an offense.

The gash will be there for another 3 days I guess and its gonna hurt. Admit it, you're human just like the rest of us.

One I liked was when theyre trying to knee to the face, move your hand down a little to the chin area and keep the elbow straight and you will get a nice spike on the top of their knee - I do this offensively in BJJ and it is a very sensitive spot to hit on the leg, and it is a good defense in MT (so my combatives coach says)
