I have a bad feeling about this....

Does anybody here have any experience in amateur or professional fights? Boxing, Muay Thai, MMA, or Ju Jitsu? I'm currently training hard for my third amateur Muay Thai fight this December and I have a few questions and concerns that I hope some of you can answer.

I'd say it's really important to know your matchups. You're not going to be able to handle the unfavorable ones if you don't know all the subtle ways your special moves can counter theirs. Also keep in mind that the input lag is going to be far less in person than what you're used to training at home, so that may throw off your combo and reversal timing.

Have to have a cool nickname too.

For you I recommend 'The Spider'.

That's probably the most important advice that could ever be given. icon_lol

don't overdo (or underdo) your training Kato, I know someone who tends to always overdo it a bit (and he looks just like you!)

Lol thanks Pug, I'll keep that in mind. Hopefully my next opponent will not give me a combo breaker.

Ah yes, I am truly guilty of over training, especially as I get older I feel that I don't have enough time so I end up destroying my own body. 

My first two fights were not very challenging due to the fact that it was my opponents' first amateur fight as well.  Ironically enough, I am pretty big for my weight class (low body fat, high muscle density)

My next opponent is supposedly a lot taller, has more fights, and is 12 years my junior.  I'm worried about him because every time I have fought I get extreme tunnel vision. I can't hear my corner, even if they are yelling.  Also in the first round I have an adrenaline dump in the first 30 seconds so after that I am winded and tired for the remaining round. Second and third rounds I actually get stronger and faster it's just that crappy first round I need to fix.

I'm sure it will sound silly, but remembering to breathe properly will help you in that first round.  Should help with both the burst and the extreme focus.  I wouldn't worry about him being younger, nothing you can do about that.  Taller though you can deal with.  Nothing I can help with that you don't already know though, but I'm sure you can talk to a coach at your gym about minimizing reach advantages.

edit: and don't forget to make a video of it. Tongue  where are your first two videos?  ninja

No, no experience. I would suggest you avoid lying on the ground and getting punched in the face repeatedly. That always looks painful.

First two were in Fresno California during the Amateur smokers which have almost 40 fights going on.  It was just me and my coach was in my corner so no video. My next one is on December 28 and unfortunately my whole family will be there win or lose, so I'm pretty sure a video recording will happen.

Make sure you can do this before getting in the ring...



Otherwise, you are guaranteed to lose.

On that note, it'll also help if you can get someone to drop coconuts on your stomach.

Just remember to put more effort into the training than the montage.  Even the slickest montage won't get you the win, no matter how nicely your edits are made and how well you utilize the accompanying music.

I could help you choose a song.
