I'm into my second kickboxing lesson. I usually box so this is entirely new to me. I have done some low kicks with my taijiquan training before but never to a great extent and they were nearly always low line to shin. Im kind of doing it to do something different, as my trainer usually can teach both boxing and K1 kickboxing. Thing is....I'm actually NOT enjoying it. While usually I take to physical activity and body co-ordination like duck to water, I'm finding kicking really hard and counter intuitive. (I'm still going to give it a go for a bit - because I'm bloody stubbon) but I can't see myself sticking with it, and both myself and my coach know this. Admittedly I am 36 and my leg flexibility is not what it is was, And I read somewhere that while boxers can box into middle age, kickboxers tend to be ...younger. So I'm going to dip into into for a number lessons, and both my coach and I have decided to go back to Boxing when we both feel Ive gone as far as technically I can go. So my question is what should I take from my brief foray into to kickboxing? Are ther any tactical manouvres or particular skill sets that a boxer should take particular notice of which could prove usefull in: A) On the Canvas B) Self Defence Now ...yes obviously I'm learning to kick and perhaps spot or defend against kicking attacks, so its an entirely new range (im stocky though so my arms are almost as long as my legs!). Im more thinkig about subtle things that you might not necessarily think of, that boxers or kickboxers have found from experience, so that I can focus on them in the forthcoming lessons. Thankyou for your patience.
