i assume that you got hurt because you were trying do something else...
Yep! Ive been paired with a couple of guys in training where we were taking turns, throwing and blocking headkicks and the guy was blocking with his elbow 'it killed my shin' but when I realized he wasnt gonna stop doing it, I started throwing under and over his elbow to rattle him. If hes gonna be a dick F him. Those guys never last anyway. Most people that cant play nice with people always quit.

For sure...

good way to catch this kind of stuff is to go over and down - if the flexibility allows

Okay, thanks everyone. The video helped and i think ill be more careful when blocking now. I can see that as a dirty trick haha but i think i need to learn how to block correctly before i shatter my elbows. The other guy said he definatly felt that on his foot but he was much better off than I was. Thanks again everyone!
