Kenny is all about a certain technique. I can't say what it is because I don't want to give away any inside info right yet. But I have to say it is a very nice technique, but a fighter has to use a technique when it is an open option rather then trying it until you succeed. It was his downfall at his last fight. He was just looking for the opportunity to show his awesome skill, that he got beat with basics.
Kyokushin is not about fancy and flashy, it is about power and speed. It is about being smart in the fight.

that I am not as bad as I think I am
I just learned basic knee kicks. It is not that we don't train knees, but we only train them on bags. It is a no-no to knee someone in sparring in the dojo. I guess there were too many injuries. The first knee I ever had was a week ago. I was like Woe There Friend (like the acronym?) That is when Sensei said if I was going to be a fighter, then I would have to get used to blocking them.
|Another picture to help the confidence|
I am very linear. When I go after a person, I got straight after them. I back them up. When someone does that to me, I don't know how to get out of it. I practice the side shuffles and diamond steps but when it comes to sparring, my mind goes blank and the bigger person bullies me around. I am in the 150 and over division, the heavyweight. There are likely to be girls bigger than me. I got pushed around like that the last time too. Luckily, she got tired and I could push back.
