Training

I was training with a partner, I was holding the tai pads and he was suppose to kick them. I can't even remember what happened but the next thing I knew I was on the ground and people were trying to sit me up lol. They said he kicked me in the jaw and I got knocked out..I believe it since my jaw hurts lol...Just a funny story I thought I would share...

Make sure your head is turned to the side facing your partner and pads are not directly in front of you. Oh tell your buddy to work on his aim...

It always makes me a little nervous being the pad holder. I had a small shiner a couple of weeks ago due to the kicking pad flying up and hitting me in the face, because I made the mistake of underestimating my partner's power.

And yeah, your buddy should be a little more careful LOL.

When you hold pads (thai pads, focus mitts, etc), it is not just held as a static target. It is best to "pat" into the oncoming blow with little resistance. This will do 2 things for you:

1) You offer live and solid resistance to your training partner hitting the pads. When you are training with the focus mitts at a fast pace, it will look like you and your partners are playing a game of "patty cake." This offers a lot more resistance and feedback for your partner. They will be able to tell if they are hitting correctly.

2) It keeps you from punching yourself in the head with your own hands. We saw this when Rachel Lae held the pads for Frank Mir. I've done it myself when I wasn't paying attention. I've also seen many black eyes caused by someone's legs rocketing a holding arm into someone's head.

So remember to push or pat into the shot as it comes in.
