thai-boxing

I hadn’t been to Muay Thai for a while and I thought the lack of practice would show tonight.

They partnered me up with this 6 foot tall French girl who very quickly asked “have you done this before?”. “A bit”, I replied.

A bit actually means for the past 10 years, in addition innumerable body combat, ballet and yoga classes, which normally give me the highest kicks and fastest punches in any class.

OOoops.

I guess my usual 1 hour runs uphill also means I have more stamina than the average girl. 5 minutes into our high kicks session she was burning. 

Her lack of flexibility meant she could not move her knee up high enough to block my side kicks and after a while, she asked for a “break”. Fair enough I did get some bruises on my shins that are going to take weeks to heal. But she was beat.

Towards the end, I thought of a few jerks I know to give my hooks more power. That finished her off. YES. 

I’m bruised up to my eyebrows now. 

Man, I feel GOOD.
