Went to my first live Muay Thai show last night night and had a great time. Then, this morning I had my first sparring session and got to hit a person instead of the bag. I caught a few right on the nose though but I was so hyped I hardly felt anything. Learned that it's pointless throwing body shots to the front when you spend so much time conditioning your abs to take full force kicks and knees. And it leaves you wide open for a counter!!! Ah well, every day is a school day. My goal now is to get ready for a real fight in front of an audience within a year.
