    You definitely need to work on your defense. I like to do a sparring drill where one person isn't allowed to strike back. You need to try to block everything. You'll learn to block strikes very quickly.

    You can teep if you have room, or you can clinch up. These are the two I would go for if you are short on room an are having trouble blocking or catching.

    P.S: It may not seem like it at first that the teep is a very good tool (didn't to me at least) but once you get experience with it it is perfect. There is nothing btter than teeping someone who is in the middle of trying to kick you, sends them flying.
