We worked with Thai Pads and concentrated on power and speed. No new combos, but we worked the heck out of the ones I know.
It was a great class. At the end of class we did 20 minutes of cardio bag training again. I was able to hang without a side ache or feeling of throwing up. I didnt have much power though, so I will work on the stamina until I can keep my power the entire time, then I will be ready to start fighting.
On another note today we practiced on defending ourselves when we are in someones guard. Hips in, head up, back straight, hand on stomach other hand supporting and elbow on inside leg.
Step up on the same side the strong hand is placed, spin and do ankle hook.
