So I was sparring last night and getting really tired half way through a round. I was trying to create some space between me and my sparring partner with a few teeps and snapping front kicks. But every time I tried to kick him, he would pick his knee up and I would hit my toes on it. After a few of these I had to resort to sidekicks because of the pain in my foot. So is there any way throw front kicks against someone who checks them constantly? Or is there any other way to create space against a bigger guy when hes in your kicking range but your in his jab range?
