Now Now would I have posted if I wasn't ready for critique. It is easier from the outside though isn't it?

I am not self conscious at all. I won't lose any sleep over any comments. Don't worry.

Re observation #1 Ha ha ha

Observation #2 Thanx Cord, I felt robbed at the time and knew I was after I watched the video. Oh well. Like I said Earlier. I'll sleep at night. It was a nice shot though wasn't it. I also got robbed of a front leg roundhouse at the end of the first fight.

This tournament was under different rules then we normally fight with, the fighting wasn't as intense as it often gets. But still fun fun fun.

The headgear I was wearing? It is made by Supersafe. There are many knock offs available. ( Tokaido makes a nice one )They run around 200 canadian. Full leather with the face shield. As I mentioned earlier we normally fight with head contact so the full shield is a must. The headgear is good. It teaches you how to control your breath. If you huff and puff away they fog up instantly, then you can't see, then you get hit.

My my, I knew that the headgear of that type is expensive but jeebus thats a wallet KO. You mentioned cheaper gear, got any idea/links to where I can find some...I already searched and found nothing below 175$ US. =[

Greetings Akhilleus

I might be able to get my hands on one for less, we had a bunch made a while ago. If you are serious I could make a call and find out if there are any left .They retail at 225 Cdn but Dojos were able to get them for 100. They are not as padded on the sides as the Supersafe or Tokaido but the face shield is the same and they seem to hold up pretty well.

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.




yeah, I understand that. If it was real self defense training I'd have been fussing at him for not running away instead of sticking around to fight.

Quote:

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 .




Eh, to a point. Even in a sport, rather than a real fighting style, if something doesn't work you shouldn't use it. If your (American) football coach is telling you to run straight at the biggest defender out there, it might be a good idea to think twice about taking that advice


Quote:

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




I'd say somewhere in his cranium after watching that kick again Why wasn't he wearing a cup?


Quote:

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!




Agreed, and the point that got scored on you was weak by comparison. You absolutely should have gotten credit for that.

I'm going to ask a couple of buddies if they're willing to make the purchase with me. I'll PM you soon. I know they may have no more but perhaps other arrangements can be made. THANKS!
