Win some, lose some

Hi guys,

Sorry for the late post once again, was away at chalet for my 1yr Anniversary Celebrations. Anyway I lost this match, but I'll be back for more. This time better! Interestingly, i was rather composed and not as nervous as before. But I felt alot more reserved during the fight and wouldnt do things that I usually do during sparring. I almost froze up and fought like a machine.


Have to learn and practise working the clinch man!
Gotta work on my heart, endurance and fitness level!
Less telegraphy on the punches
Train my legs hard enough to be comfortable throwing kicks!
Have to start on explosive strength training
As Sean summed it up nicely, Back to the strategic drawing boards for next time round.

Ok less talk more action right guys?

Heres the match:

Im the one in blue who ate alot of knees.

Enjoy and as usual, Constructive Criticism is encouraged!
