If anyone wants it...

Here's the link to my first novice Muay Thai match. I'm fighting out of the blue corner, wearing my green shorts. Let me know what you think http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Nw6AtxHuy4 WFS

Re: If anyone wants it...

Nice job! Biggest negatives I saw were you were visibly flinching away from punches in the first round, but you loosened up after that. The one slip in the first round, and a few punches later that went wild. Good solid kicks, good transitions from covering up to throwing combinations, nice knockdown in the 2nd, you owned all 3 round IMO.

Re: If anyone wants it...

Thanks man. Yeah, I took a bit to get used to him. I hadn't sparred anyone that small for a while. The next smallest guy at my club was 72-73kg, so my opponent was different to what I'm used to. I did slip, but apparently that's because I should have had some spray or something on the bottom of my feet. And yes, my punches went wild, and I dropped my hands after throwing them a lot. I chalk it up to nerves and excitement more than anything else.
I think I could work on my clinching a bit after this fight. I got him up against the corner and my mind just blanked out. Live and learn, hey? I probably should also have worked my kicks a lot more (kicks asides from a push kick anyway haha).
Thanks for the feedback!
