I have always loved the ability to kick. I’m not quite sure why, but it’s something that I’ve always enjoyed. I’ve always loved the feeling of being in a place where I can kick and get my ass kicked.
In a recent interview with the guys at the Kickboxing Channel, it was revealed that the kickboxing world owes a lot to female kickboxers. In fact, many of the biggest names in the sport are female fighters, including our very own Chris and his sister, Maria. Chris, Maria, and others have been taking on MMA and kickboxing fights since the mid-90s, and they’ve put the world’s best fighters at their disposal.
While both MMA and kickboxing tend to be more physically intense than boxing, the kickboxing world is a little more progressive. Whereas there are plenty of “no rules” MMA fights, kickboxing fights tend to have rules that are more aggressive, such as a “choke” choke.
Our kickboxer fight against the legendary Chuck Liddell from the legendary New York-based kickboxing organization, Pride Fighting Championship, was a fight that was much more aggressive than I had anticipated. After Chris and Maria stepped in to take Liddell down, Chris put his shoulder to Maria’s forehead and it turned into a full on head-butt.
After watching the fight, I was amazed at how Chris was able to kick Liddell in the head while he was laying on the ground, which was a huge part of the fight. I am also surprised at how well Liddell kept his balance. I have never seen a fighter do something so well as Chris.
I am surprised at how well Chris used his body to control the fight. He was able to use his powerful legs to get under Marias chin and then slam his head into Marias face. It’s easy to tell Chris was using his body to control the situation. His body is one of his strengths, because it allows him to easily move around and not feel like he’s stuck in one place, like a fighter does when he’s using a weapon.
Chris seems to have managed to use his body for both the fight and the kickboxing. For a fighter, that is a huge accomplishment. For a kickboxer, it would seem like an even bigger accomplishment. Like a fighter, the kickboxing is something Chris seems to have been born to do. The ability to control your body to do things you can’t do with your hands, is one of the things that makes Chris special.
In the trailer we see Chris doing a few moves that I find are extremely difficult to accomplish with your hands, but Chris does them with his body. I think this is great for a kickboxer because you are able to do a lot with just your legs. That is a huge advantage since you are able to use your legs to do all sorts of things you can’t do with your hands.
The only problem about this is that it’s a little weird. I don’t like that your legs are used to do something you can’t do with your hands, but the legs aren’t really involved with the moves. I was going to say that I think this makes it harder to control your weight, but that doesn’t really matter because you can do so many moves with your legs that your body can’t move itself.
I know that I am just a little biased about this, but I really like that you can move your legs to kick. In fact, its so freakin cool that I am going to go ahead and give this to my girl.
