These are from a Kohaku tournament this afternoon. Strictly no head contact and first good hit in. I am the one in the black shield. First time fighting in a while. ( injured hand) We normally fight head contact, and continuous fighting, this time we didn't, so the guards admittedly are a little lax. Feel free to comment.

It was an accident!

You're not half bad. Don't spin kick. Your opponent was slow, otherwise every time you spun he had a nice opportunity to rush you and there wouldn't be a thing you could do about it. In fact, don't kick at all unless it's low (knee or below) (and if that's against the rules in the fight, then don't kick at all)- - look how many times you guys grabbed each other's leg off of a kick. Kicks are SLOW and it's way too easy for an opponent to grab your leg if you kick that high. Concentrate on your hands. They're faster and harder to stop, and if your opponent does manage to grab one, you can knock him off balance by rushing him. Any time your foot comes off the ground, you have lost balance, and the unbalanced one is at a disadvantage.

Thanx for the advice. I thought did Ok for an almost 40 year old who hadn't fought in a year due to hand injuries.

Oh, almost 40. Gee, you're so ancient

Yeah, I think you did OK too. You were certainly better than the guys you were up against.

If your hands are healed, I saw alot of opportunities to enter while opponents were kicking with their guards down, hitting the solar plexus/stomach area would have been easy or will be once you get your timing/cardio back up.

Good power on some of those kicks..... minus the groin shot. =P

Edit***

About being older....even though some of the older cats in my dojo are about the same weight/height as some of us younger guys they seem to always have a little more power/weight behind strikes. I usually call it jack hammer strength because it seems to come from manual labor. It's functional muscle. I guess what I'm saying is even though you are older it shouldn't be hold you back one bit, use what you have to your advantage and work on those hand strikes! Nothings more awsome than landing a hit to the solar plexus through a bogu and having your partner fall to his knee's.

It is always easier from the outside looking in. Good observation though. Thank You

I'm getting the impression you don't want anyone to critique your performance. If so, perhaps you should consider for next time not including the remark "feel free to comment."

Aw, well that's okay if he's a little self conciouse about his performence. Not to worry though I'll have a clip of my self soon and he can judge away at my inadequacies.

On a side note, I liked that headgear. I'm wondering if those are the same as those worn in Kudo? Where are they from Mike?

this wasn't self defence training, this was moderate contact training of his art, and as such he was attempting to utilise techniques he has been taught. Learning comes from application, and it can be tremendously satisfying and fun if a nice kick lands home- you think they were kicking a lot, try Savate! now thats a foot happy kickathon .

observation 1. In the first clip, was your oponent jumping up and down to try ang 'jiggle' his nards down from where you kicked them? If so, did you get any feedback on where they ended up after the kick

observation 2. in the second clip at 1 min 44 you land a sweet reverse punch that put your oponent on his butt, yet never got given the score. you was robbed!

looked like a lot of fun, wish I was as light on my feet at 32 as you are at 40
