Another Southpaw Question!!
I'm a former southpaw boxer looking to get into Muay Thai.
I'm having trouble get in on my opponent, While sparring I'll try either jabbing in or kicking with the back foot to move in close to my opponent (I'm always looking to get in to punching range, working to my strengths)
When I try these techniques I get soundly thigh kicked and my opponent moves.
Is it just my lack of experience ? should I try and check the thigh kick and use that to get into puching range?
My question is what would be a good entry technique for a southpaw?, should I work hard on developing a solid thigh kick off the my front foot and use that? or just look to "check" and than attack.
I do want to be a all-rounded fighter but I know it's going to take alot of training and sweat to change from a boxer to kickboxer.
Any help would be great, thanks.
