    The only trouble with that, as i've found, is that when you're sparring against people in your club that you can beat easily (without sounding big headed) that you hold back, or throw kicks you really wouldnt try against a good opponent. Theres a few guys in my club that can test me, but apart from my teacher no ones really faster than me, which means i play game-of-chess type sparring against the older dudes, who always get ****ed when i throw a fast combination, or get a good headshot in.
    (Or even worse fail to aknowledge a headshot, 'That was pretty close'...yeah to snapping your neck.)

    Oh well, competitions are the way forwards.

    I understand, I just play around with opponents.

    Im not even allowed to kick to the head any more! And If I kick hard to the mid section my master yells out " Control your power" Im like give me a break, he was asking for it, completely open.

    So I hold back too.
