    I can really relate to this! Maybe we need to start some kind of fighters anonymous therapy group , lol!

    I remember one sparing session where I returned to my old TKD club after achieving my Kenpo rank, and facing a black belt I had never seen before. After feeling each other out for a while he hit me on the chest with a sidekick that woke me up! Got serious after that :-)

    Would that therapy group be called tough love Dr. J? :) LOL!

  3. Dr. J Says:

    It was tough love for him because after that side kick I attacked with a flip kick to the abdomen (they didn’t want groin strikes in TKD), and he decided to jump six inches in the air to avoid the strike!

    !5 minutes later he got up from the floor with a new therapeutic attitude I’m sure. :-)

    Hey lots of football players (and 53 yo still missing it) know about good hits. We will trade good hits for sex at least some of the time. Yeah, it brings you alive alright. The animal emerges.

    hey Kevin!

    I use to say the same thing – I could always get a date but how often could you fight someone that deserved it? :)
