hello
« on: June 10, 2009, 03:03:16 AM »
I'm new here and just wondering what level of training & flexibility you're at after your hip surgery. I've been training in karate, kick-boxing & mma for a while and would like to continue this level of training after my surgery. right now I can only kick waist high so it's been alot of leg kicks for now...lol any input is appreciated.

Hi Techie,

I have been involved in boxing and mma for many years, I am nearly 20 weeks post op and forty three years old. I have been careful with my recovery but I have been stretching lots and I am able to axe kick to shoulder level, although I'm not a massive fan of kicking!!!. I am moving around the dojo with ease, " no jumping ", form feels good and my mechanics are better than they have been for years.
It is worth noting that recovery from surgery is something to prepare yourself for, do not rush and try to remain patient, I have enjoyed going back to basics and appreciating the thought and study required for being functional in boxing and mma.

I hope I have been some help.

Best wishes

Terry

thanks for the reply Terry. how high can you throw your round house kick? and how is your ground work when you practice mma?

Hi,

As I mention in my previous post, I am not at all sold on the the functionality of kicking above the waist...I can, but when is that needed and in what situation does it work!! I use groundwork a lot and it can be very functional when practised in a stressed enviroment.

Boxing has been a bedrock for all round fighting for me, the exploration into other areas has to come from good mechanics and boxing does give that, I can ramble on all day about this subject mate, so I'll stop before I send you to sleep.

Regards

Terry

whether there's a need to kick high or not I not that concerned about. I was just curious if you are able to effectively. I like kicking to the head once in a while...hahaha
