    LOL! I instruct the 6 month beginners course at my gym, which is soon finished, and the guys in the advanced classes are all pestering me for fresh meat this summer :p

    No worries tho, it's a phase, if you dont let it get to you.

    Thanks very much for the reply. Believe me I'm taking into accoutn Everything you said, can see it really helping. I think it's a case of me trying to relax, and slip / bob etc, and generally having better defense, but because no one is worried about getting hit, they can jus crowd me out and because I don't reply I just take a beating, at most i throw a couple of retreating jabs out. And obv, my defense is not very good right now lololol. I think i'm trying to be TOO Relaxed - what you said about being competitive, I am ridiculously competitive - But I've managed to keep it under wraps for sparring, but so much so that I think I've literally dulled down lol. :( (related to just taking it beacuse you know its sparring.)

    Will work on the thing about counter punching and my conditioning immediately, guna start using the heavy bag for tabata style training. You know I said about taking the final kick or punch of a combo, I always spar a very experienced guy who ends his combos with a rib /high kick. As i said I see these coming and just ignore them, beacuse I don't wana block with my hands (I used to push the kick away with my forearms when I first started and just ate punches), but i don't really know what I'm thinking - maybe that I can't get my leg up in time lol. (getting pretty good at blockign low, but lets face it the movement required for that is nothing more than a shift of a few inches.)

    >boxing cover drills is one of the few self drills you can do that will help for defense.

    Had a quick search but had conflicting ideas, please explain this to me... The only cover drill idea I found was someone saying stand against a wall or whatever and just take flurries of punches and learn to block them, slip them, etc, then when you can take them well throw in the counters... but obv partner rquired for this.

    Any tips on my comment about being stuck 'outside' range? Or is it jus a case of attitude - step in behind the jab, take a punch, and answer.

    On reflection, post was so me thinking about it too much - I know im not very good, but i know im not real bad either lol, but then coming bk from 5 months out there's bound to b some rustyness. As u can see I don't like underperforming... Thanks again. Refocused now and ready to go lol.


    Also, LOL to the guy who sed nice book millasur or watever it was lol.

    I am talking about you, in front of a mirror, doing this type of drill but with high and mid level blocks included.

    For the range issue, read KK's Closing the Gap Instructional.
