kickboxing @ London Fight Factory

20 June 2012 1,882 views No Comment

Fantastically sweaty, moody and tuff, I came for a trial lesson this evening and I’ll be coming back (London Fight Factory). Several reasons for the swift decision a) the smell, it just smells like a proper boxing gym and I dig that (gross but true) 2) lots of kicking, boom c) numerous Israelis & Brazilians, and you’d be in the minority if you haven’t heard about my weakness for pretty Israeli & Brazilian boys, ha ha.

Most of the class was pad work with a partner, sandwiched between warm up & core work. Not a lot of cool down/ stretching but I’m happy with that, I’d rather have someone else push me and then stretch myself. We did simple combinations to start and then more advanced, mixing different strikes and kicks. It’s the first time I’ve had someone aim kicks at me (when I was holding the pads) and while there’s a lot I can do, take a guy’s round kick to the body is not one of them, it smashed me!

Back next week for more though.
