Jumping kicks. Also flying kicks. So, jumping kicks are straight up and down – used to gain height, and flying kicks, you move laterally, so you can use them to gain distance and height.
Except, I’m not really a jumpy person. I’m built to stay close to the ground. I use high heels, rather than defying the laws of speed and gravity, to gain height. Leaving the ground makes me nervous.
Also? Being hit in the face. I hate it. So sparring is kind if hard because I find it hard to keep my eyes open, if I know there’s a fist coming at my face. Instead I close them and wait for impact – which most people will tell you is not an effective block.
