Cheers everyone for the advice, it痴 good to hear different opinions and see which ideas keep coming back. I will be working on all my techniques as much as possible so will be checking kicks when I can but being offensive every time my opponent attacks is definitely going to be my plan. If I put too much energy into defending I値l just get beaten and do nothing, I want the guy to be afraid of attacking cos of what he値l get in return, I知 tall so that痴 a huge advantage with this as well. Bluffing is something I知 working on as I知 probably going to give away my attacks too much so need to trick my opponent, I知 going to exploit the fact that I知 a beginner and use it to my advantage.
To make it clear, I do have a trainer that I can spar with but sometimes we値l go a full week without training, he痴 doing it for free cos he loves Muay Thai but he has a family/job etc. I知 in a town called Phetchaburi which is min. 1 hr from a good gym, I can go there Saturdays but not during the week and I知 looking for things to help me get better with limited resources. I know it痴 going to be a bit messy but I知 in a position now where I can train and make the most of the situation, even if it痴 not all the time or part of a team. I値l not have a chance like this for a long time cos I知 constantly travelling and have just settled to teach for a year but will be moving again after the school year.
It痴 an opportunity I want to make the most of and if I知 stupid for doing it, well, a few kicks to the head won稚 make much difference. I accept losing as a huge possibility but am going into it with conviction and the will to destroy my opponent in blue (underdog) shorts.
Thanks again for all the comments and to Will for the videos; I致e been practicing some of your techniques.
