    Have you entered any "oriental" or standard ring fight orientated fights yet, I would suggest if k1 is the route you want to go to, get into that way of competing as soon as possible. Very different to the stop/start style of competing, Good luck on your journey

    I watched the video, and have to say I was real impressed with your composure. You didn’t get over-hyped or overly reactive to your opponent. Looked to me you were finding strategic opportunities to score in a thoughtful and deliberate manner.

    Best of luck to you. You ,may not have gotten the result you wanted in that particular match, but if you keep up with training I think you will hold your own. Personally, I always like systematic fighters....

    thanks very much for saying that sir yeh im a strategist my instructor told me doesnt matter if you are not as skilled or as fit as your opponent just be smarter so he taught me to figure out a persons good and weak points in a very short time. as soon as he rushed forward i knew he was not a kicker as was plainly obvious in the video lol . thank you very much for your support
