Ive been training MT for a long time now and ive never been able to that sit down on but , legs stretched apart and touch the mat with my elbows, so instead I grab the ropes in the ring and gently pull myself forward ffrom that same position, never been super flexible but can still throw a real hard high roundhouse kick with either leg, the kind that turns heads in the gym, i guess in MT you dont have to be super flexible and do all that Van Dam crap
