Today’s Muay Thai lesson, we were mainly practicing the fake push up leading to a push kick. It may seem simple but a lot people were doing wrongly and coach Pal shouted at us. Instead of lifting their knees forward to do the fake, many were lifting the knee from the side like a shin block.

Anyways, I wasn’t holding the pad firm enough. When my partner kneed the pad, it went up and hit my jaw. Now it is very painful for me to chew stuff. I was afraid that my jaw was dislocated. Thankfully, I can still move it. I guess it’s fine then.
