After watching myself spar Ive realized how bad I am. My biggest flaw is using my kick like a jab, just throwing out to try and control the match, not as a damaging strike. I didnt realize how stupid this was till someone pointed out you wouldn't do that with a hook. Ive decided to re-build my fighting style from the ground up so I was wondering, how do you get into punching range without eating kicks, and can you do body kicks from punching range (We dont leg kick). What is the correct way to block a side or front kick?
