    Admittedly the guy could have held the pads differently. Still this was the first technique of a pad-work session and I managed to hit him right on the sweet spot!



    The side kick is my favourite kick. What's yours?

    Looks painful. Short of holding it in front of his nose, there may not be a worse way of holding a pad for side kick. Lesson learnt the hard way!

    In my opinion.... wrong pads for working that technique. I would think the bigger pads work better for kicks... especially side kicks since they pack a lot of power! Ouch. Interestingly enough, we just got done working side kicks in different variations with pads tonight... the long pads that you stand with your body behind. I vote side kick as being my long time favorite kick... however, I do really like the spinning hook kick as well... probably just as much. Too bad I could only vote for one.

    I agree. Wrong pad and certainly the wrong position to hold the one used. I, unfortunately, didn't have much choice in the matter.
