You can't 'see' it coming, douche. If you're practicing patterns and you think he's going low and throws high, there's nothing do you can do. It's the exact same movement until the last moment. If you could lift your leg to kick, you would know this. His fault, either way. Props to OP though for taking a Muay Thai class, stuff is good to know. I wouldn't want to take a knee from you.

"Dance partner"? It's not salsa dancing, it's a martial art. I agree that OP could/should have seen it coming, since it's a completely different move. You should be able to receive them as well as deal them yourself. And yes, sometimes it means getting hit. It sucks, but you deal with it and move on.

# 50 are you fucking kidding me. i know plenty of people who could see that coming in tae kwon do and karate, the lowest being a green belt in tae kwon do which specializes in kicks and he can already dodge 2/3 of the grand masters kicks at half speed, or 50 kmh. muay thai doesnt use kicks as much but it is far stricter so she should be able to see it

Not at all. WIthout the last sentence, we could think the kicker was a little boy, or all sorts of things. The fact OP is a young girl and the kicker is a grown man makes a huge difference in the levels of pain of the kick. If you'd done martial arts, you'd know. I've been on the receiving end of people missing the protective gear, and it makes a really big difference who accidentally hit you.

It sounded like they were doing combination pad work so she is right to be aggrieved at her partner's lack of control. I had a lesson monday where the junior belt kept rushing a technique he was practicing, doing it wrong and putting me at serious risk of a broken arm. I'm a 215lb guy, love fighting, been doing it for 20 years, but I still don't want to get an injury inflicted through stupidity. Also, interestingly, the pain would not be similar. Despite the old chestnut about putting up with the pain of childbirth, the average woman has a lower tolerance for pain than the average man (http://www.bath.ac.uk/news/articles/archive/paingender040705.html) This has implications for areas such as anesthesiology

jesus christ darkhumor, do you feel special? would you like a medal? nobody cares if you think you're tough. she never said she was dainty, and getting out of the way would be difficult as A. she was wearing pads and B. her partner was supposed to do a body kick. sometimes you let your guard down when people have instructions and don't follow them.

Jimboom wasn't saying that the OP was a guy. He was saying she deserves to give the guy a gut shot or a nut shot without reprisal. So really your the dumbass.

In response to playing dead: you can get your enemies, friends, and potential rape victims closer to your proximity and they (or it) will be none the wiser. (smoke puff starts to rise towards the Stratosphere) If only they were in a balloon for the whole world to see and panic over...
