I recently took interest in learning how to strike with my legs, which is very different from anything else that I have tried. I'm just looking for some pointers and a little guidance, can f11 steer me in the right direction? Helpful Information (possibly?): -I boxed from 11-17yrs of age as a youngling, so I'm very familiar with striking and being struck in general. -Currently learning grappling as well (Just passed my first 90 days, woo) -I train at an MMA gym where experienced leg strikers help me out, but I only make it out once or twice a week, so I'm trying to pick up everything that I can in the mean time. -I currently do mild training with some shin guards that are for mountain biking, although they help a little.. the top part of my ankle/lower shin is still bruised up after a couple nights of bag work. Questions: -Should I learn a particular style of leg striking that is easy to transition to from boxing? (MTvsTKDvsKickBoxing, etc) -Is it recommended to invest in something that is designed specifically for leg strikes? (http://www.performancemma.com/venum-shinguards-amazonia-black/?gclid=CLnV6qjA4bQCFYYWMgodzUwALg , example) Or will my body just adjust over time? -Any "go to" 101 videos that any of you suggest? Probably going to post a video of my noob-like leg strikes sooner or later, but just looking for some basic advice right now. Thanks in advance F11. **********Video Update********** 1/22/13 **********Video Update********** Well, here it is. One week into this mess. I saw myself doing a lot wrong and I can still tell that my boxing is rusty since I haven't trained it in a very long time. Overall I feel like I've made improvements, help me make more! First part of video: I warmed up shadowboxing and kicking the standing bag since it is easy on my legs. Second part of video: Heavy bag work, trying to incorporate kicks into my boxing repertoire and working on mid-level kicks.. This bag has all of the sand sunk to the bottom : /. Third part of video: Switched bags to something a little softer and was trying to work on my higher kicks.
