I trained for 3 1/2 years in Peterborough UK. Got to 1st kup. Learnt all patterns, kicks to best of my ability. Some guys at work were messing around the other day. I kicked one and he grabbed my leg, I ended up on my rear!! Total ambarrasment!! Same scenario again today. Another swept my leg, and I was gone!!! Now, I was taught nothing really about self defense other than one step and three step, nothing about how to get out of a leg grab etc. Just patterns, and kicks. Now, for £59.00 a month, one would assume, that someone one level away from blackbelt would be able to breeze these attacks off, even if it is just messing about. Its bloody embarrasing, especially as they know I trained!! What if that was a real fight!!! I'd be screwed (( Any thoughts?
