AdamThomas has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Yeah I can defend against them ok, I just suck at throwing them any higher than the leg, I just can't seem to get any power into higher ones, and I guess I'm probably at risk at getting them caught and being taken down. I guess it's a good idea to keep learning them but I noticed that there are a higher percentage of KOs in mma from punches than there are from kicks, knees and elbows, so not that worried about it also I'm quite a short guy so would be fighting taller people, don't think it would make sense to be trying to throw high kicks.
