I got used to stubbing my toe. I do it quite often and honestly, it annoys the heck out of me.

I mean so many years and I still stub my toe!!

What's with all the Toe Stubbing in Muay Thai class??

Ran the class last night and tried something new. I had everyone partner up with a blast master. They had to clinch up and knee their opponent as much as they could. The pupose was to hold and control your opponent long as possible. The person clinched was suppose to try and evade/or slip out of the clinch if possible. Amazing how long you can clinch/control someone up if you have your arms and hand properly locked around their neck. Oh by the way make sure your not wearing an ear rings, people know better and have been told to remove those silly things, it's not my problem your ear is bleeding!

Week 3... I am now feeling like a noob... I wish I didn't have an ego when it relates to MA but in all honesty.. I do.
I'll have to work at it... I just get frustrated that I am not as good as I once thought I was..

Let the learning begin....

I feel your pain. I thought I was getting Muay Thai down pretty good, and then an instructor comes up to me to show me the right way on doing something. Don't let it get to you and remember, be humble when it comes to training. You will never stop learning .

Or do like me;

Ignore the teacher and find what works best for you.

IMO, my sidekick can do a lot more damage than my front thrust kick, and my footwork lends better mobility than the one taught by the teacher.

BUT BE WARNED!

You're there to learn!!! If you're there to display ego, you might as well pack up and go back where you came from.

You can start innovating once you're on the level where there's not much you have to learn beside actual sparring experience. Then you use some tricks from the "old days".

I am definately there to learn... and to get in shape..

Week 4...I get frustrated in my inability to execute certain mooves efficently but, I am learning...
Wed may be my first sparring session in this class.
We did a little "leg sparring" (just kicks) Monday.
I was able to get in on some of the less experienced students, but I partnered up with a guy who is one of the better fighters in the class and he blocked most of what I tried, he also took it a little easy on me as I'm still new.
But it was good to patrner up with a guy who has some experience.
then we did conditioning... taking turns kicking to the leg or body and no blocks.. that was fun.. ouch.

Applying what I have learned to actual sparring is my big weakness right now. When I spar, I just want to brawl and I know that's not the correct way to do this. I'm supposed to use the techniques I have learned, so I understand where you're coming from. All I can say is keep at it and eventually, hopefully, we will both get it!
