I mix my female students in my Muay Thai class in with the guys when we spar. I dont go easy on them technically, you have to respect them enough to make it a tough match, but Im not hitting them even close to how hard I could. I just wouldnt feel right. I have a feeling at Chute Boxe they dont care much about that. lol..Thats probably why she is such a beast.

precisely; if u pair the women up with guys who have good control enough to make it a tough match, the womens' technical skill will increase and then their strength over time. lol what feels to me like a gonzaga head kick is prolly holding back for the guys at my school but it does help me improve over time.

lol. Its funny you say that. I actually kicked one of my guys in the head the other day about 50% and almost KO'd him. He wobbled a little bit, and I just kind of helped him to the ground to sit for a sec. The head kicks are hard to guage.

I clinch alot with my girls, I really try to work their clinch escapes with them alot, so it kind of helps in a self defense situation too,

that would be very valuable self-defense training. at my testing session yesterday in self-defense sparring absolutely everyone (men & women) got owned by my teacher, why? b/c we don't do enough practice w/the clinch, not being a MT school, but i feel it's crucial so I bring it up here and there in class.

Go on youtube and find some clinch escapes. And maybe bring in class that you want to do some neck wrestling. That was how I got my clinch game good. Im like 170 lbs, and I man handle big wrestlers in the clinch. Its not about strength, its all technique. Im going to start adding a video/blog to my myspace every month about the techniques Im teaching. Mainly for people in my students who miss a class. But it may be useful for someone like you too that has an interest in techniques you arent learning.

You know what, not to snow in any replies here but........

The cyborg video was cool. And if those were her highlights, her best strikes and knockouts than Gina is capable of combat in an extreme measure in reguards to Cyborg.

On any one of her fights she has strikes and take downs which rival any of those on the clip shown.

I can't contest the skills of Chute Box fighters, but I think Gina will hold her own.

Cyborg's fights are all very short, except for the one against Porto.

Watching the highlight is like seeing the whole fight.
