    i would say my weakest points are my combination punching, i pick shots alot and pot shot people; i use alot of lead rights/jabs/lead lefts, i don't often put my punches together. Not as much as i should.

    I am not great on the inside, clinch, or just in chest to chest exchanges

    An i am limited in regards to kicks/knees, i am ok w/the knees; but i just don't use the kicks much or very eff.

    hoenstly cardio...

    i think that was the one thing i ahd the ahrdest time with. the techniques you cna refine and aquire but cardio i always struggled wiht. at my competitive peak i was far from the typical body of a striker. i was stockly so the added mass isnt a strikers best friend.

    that was always my biggest fear.. that i'd gas out when i needed a second wind the most.
     
  3. I weakest points that greatly stand out are defending front kicks, and backing up and circleing without countering. And I sometimes throw punches with bad technique, but im still a beginner.

    My weak point is my counter punching, I'm I guess would be a aggresive fighter, pushing the pace, but when I have to defend and counter then I get tagged or I'm a little slow in countering. Like eveyone here, I'm learning more and getting better and hopefully with some sweat and luck I'll be better at this.

    Everything, lol.

    For the most part Footwork, head movement, and letting my hands go.

    I'm a bleeder. And I scream like a little girl when I get hit.

    leg kicks and defending them. I feel confident with my hands and can slip/counter pretty good.

    I am to considerate of my sparing partners, after I land decent blows I am always asking "Was that to hard?" I think i would do alot better if I actually threw harder, let my hands go and was more aggresive.

    That and cardio and working closer to taller opponents

    Definately cardio!

    If I dont knock somebody out or seriously hurt them by the mid/end of round 2... Im done for.

    But besides cardio, my hands need a little bit of work in MT(straight boxing theyre ok). I honestly throw 80 percent kicks/knees its always how Ive trained. I think I have to work more punches in into my combos instead of just throwing the straight left or lead right hook after a kick/knee combo.
