Today, I was at my Muay Thai class. We were doing a combination which consisted of a low kick, body kick and head kick. My partner had already done the low kick so I held the pads for the body kick. He kicked me straight in the jaw. I'm a teenage girl and he's a fully grown man. FML

  • At least the jaw kick just made him look like a jerk to the rest of the class.

  • It's not uncommon to get kicked/hit/kneed/elbowed in a Muay Thai class. I've been taking Muay Thai for several years and it happens. It sounds like the OP was paired with someone who doesn't take their partner into consideration. Pad rounds are shouldn't end in such an injury. On the other hand, it sounds like the OP wasn't paying attention, otherwise she could have done something to prevent being kicked in the jaw. Especially since the partner threw a head kick instead of a body kick. The height difference isn't that much with thai pads. Either way, it always sucks to get kicked in the jaw
