  1. Isn't it funny how those few strikes that we manage to land stick in our memories so clearly? It's that one in a hundred hook or clean round-house across the belly that feels so GOOD when it thumps home. What sort of training does your trainer put you through? It sounds like he's got you doing a lot of sparring, ie, not just drills.
  2. Gregor, my trainers don't encourage a lot of clinch, and I'm not entirely sure why. I'm with you on this: Clinch IS Muay Thai! Maybe they see it as high risk b/c it's easy to throw ugly spear knees or wrench someone's neck, but I don't think that should stop us from training it.
  3. Recently, my trainers have been moving our gym toward more technical sparring and away from the 'old school' beat'm up approach. As a tenured student who's been a part of the old way, the improvements have been amazing. The big guys are allowed to go easy on each other, the little guys don't have to be (as) afraid going up against the big guys, and everyone has more mental space in which to analyze their partner's style and develop answers. What positive experiences have your sparring partners given you lately?
