threeoaks posted a topic in Muay Thai Technique, Training and Fighting QuestionsThe foot injury described in another thread inspired this question: can you experienced people please describe common and very SPECIFIC beginner's mistakes in sparring? I am not talking about going too hard and trying to "win"; I want to know about common & pointlessly destructive "flinches" like the elbow reaction that broke someone's foot. I don't know when I will be cleared to spar by my doc and my trainer but I'm excited (and have done in regular boxing) but I am big and don't really want to injure someone like that. Just visited an 12 year old girl who was concussed pretty bad at my daughter's karate school. I am not afraid of violence, just want to know what types of control you all notice are commonly underdeveloped in Muay Thai beginners. I have already read Damion Trainor's and Sean Fagan's posts on the subjects and again, I am not a total tool - I have sparred in boxing somewhat - I am just moved to inquire because though I am training teep defense, I am not yet aware of things like that elbow jerk tendency. Thanks!
