So quick back story. I've been training for 8 months now and I don't typically spar a lot. And when I do, we have shin pads on and we are not going full bore. So I've always been curious about how it feels to kick someone on the thigh as hard as I kick the Thai pads. So on Friday night, after a few beers, I was talking to this guy outside the bar. He was saying how he was a karate guy and has trained blah, blah, blah... You know the type of guy I'm talking about... Well he was going on about how he's a tough guy.. So I asked him, "Hey man, if I paid you $10 to let me kick your leg would you let me?" With him being rather sloshed, he actually agreed. My girlfriend told him he was an idiot. The guy was wearing jeans and I kicked him dead in the thigh. Well the kick hurt pretty good and my shin is still sore but really no bruising but there was one little mark on my shin.... THE HEMMING ON THE SIDE OF HIS PANTS LMAO!
The guy was hobbling the rest of the night and I can only imagine how his leg felt the next day. My leg had some nice swelling but overall I could still walk and function. It was very tender but it's getting better. But at least now I know what it will feel like.
