If anyone has heard, the finest Light heavyweight from Pride and the UFC are having a fight. Chuck Liddell versus Wanderlei Silva is going to be an immense match. Predictions on the winner?
Bascially, at trianing last Monday a girl really really injured my hand. I was holding a kick pad out and she missed, kicked my hand full pelt with trainers on. I thought I'd broken it. Afterwards, it went blue and started shaking. I have now been given the all clear. But the problem is that I am really worried about this happening again because it was so reckless, it was as good as deliberate. She also ripped the other girls skin on her hand and bruised it. She is really silly and I don't want to go to trianing now because I have paid for a ice hockey camp and if she does this again I won't be fit to go. I am not a wimp and I am prepared for injuries but this was really uneccessary and silly. Anyone can cause a lot of harm to a delicate part of the body by kicking without TKD trianing, nevermind with it. Accidents happen but you should respect the person helping you trian-fights are different
Also in free sparring she started to kick a kid half her size full contact. She is spoilin the sessions
I agree with redluc. Theres no room for carelessness in MA as far as I'm concerned.
I agree, best just to mention it
Its been raised with her numberous times, and she was told off by the instructor last week. She is younger than us anyway, still in early teen at Senior school.
She sounds fairly new to the whole exercise...
Perhaps take her aside and explain how important it is to be compassionate with your training partners - yes, we need to use force when sparring - but the aim should never be to harm your partner. One of the joys about martial arts for me is being aggressive with friends in a safe environment and we definitely hurt each other sometimes - but mostly accidentally. At the end of the day it's important to be able to go out once you leave the dojo and have a drink or a laugh with your partners. If the animosity is carried outside due to recklessness, you are losing out on a whole side of martial arts - mental conditioning.
Perhaps you could take her under your wing and teach her a few things maybe?
Just try and guide her towards acceptable levels of force..
Thanks for your advice, it was not as bad tonight
