Old School Kickboxing Fun
Several months ago I put a post of me competing in a kickboxing team completion of USA Vs. South Africa. It was a modified version of American Kickboxing (above the waist kicks). We through hard contact to the body and pull the punches to the head. The cameraman for the event recently uploaded our bouts and I wanted to share a better quality video. Recently my teammates, AJ Weathersby and Kelly Leo's bouts were posted, so I am now sharing mine. I had fun throwing punches and kicks in a competitive format. Even though I stay active at age 50 by competing in Judo, it has been 12 years since I punched and kicked at an opponent (fortunately I stay in shape by working out with a talented team of students who fight in Karate, Kickboxing, MMA, etc.). So, I still feel young. In this clip, I am moving around with a youngster in his 20s. Because I've had the privilege of being able to compete in a variety of combat sports, in this match I'm able to utilize my boxing and taekwondo back ground in a fun way.
