exactly my point, at my school i'm one of the top fighters now due to my friends teaching of some muay thai techniques and some groundfighting, before every class we work some combos with knees elbows and then we wrestle around, then when class starts its mostly kungfu but it's all good
and thanks to my friend opening my mind i've been on this amazing forum finding new techniques, as a kung fu fighter i'm pretty good with my knees :P
