There’s a fundamental problem with learning kickboxing…
On the one hand, to get good at it and know that your techniques will work under pressure you HAVE to spar.
On the other hand, it’s undeniable now that repeated shots to the head are no good at all for your brain.
Everyone has heard of punch drunk boxers and football players with CTE, and we DON’T want to do that to ourselves!!!
So how do you thread the needle and get the benefits of sparring without taking too much damage in the process?
That’s the central topic that Ritchie Yip (the brains behind The Precision Kickboxing Masterclass) and I sat down to discuss in this Q&A session
We also explore why it’s so hard to transition from from hitting pads to full on sparring, how to get over the stigma of hitting people, the importance of continual learning, how to avoid getting tired, a few conditioning questions, and the best ways to have low risk training with high benefit.
