Been working my back muscles for grappling. .

Man it's good to have a strong back for clinching and stuff. Really helps doing those, err, what you call it? Chin ups? you know when you hang from a bar and pull yourself up.

Anyway, my back sore's as hell but it's fun.

Technique wise I'm trying to work both hands for cross but it seems my left hand isn't designed for cross somehow. No problem with hook but it's hell trying to deliver a strong cross. It either is good form but no strength, or it completely misses the target.

Scrapping with people who have natural talent is awesome, because it forces you to adapt and also necessitates skills as well.

Change of course!

Doing kicking now so here I come Karate, TKD and who knows what!

More info can be found in the karate section.

I'm going to supplement boxing with those kicking techniques.

See what'll happen.

Discovered that the "cover up" technique from can be used well in karate when, excuse my rude way of putting it, when the sh!t hits the fan. However due to the open mats where I have mostly sparred is open I is possible to use a technique I copied from TKD; retreat jump, shuffle and kick.

I've also noticed it's a lot easier using grappling against a karate-ka with kicker instincts than one with a tendency to 'box' his way around.

I agree. Gotta watch out for uppercuts when going for a shoot on someone that knows how to punch. Kicks are much easier to avoid or cut off.

Also noticed though~
'Kickers' are a lot easier to keep in the clinch than boxers.
