The back of my legs? No, never.

I use to get hit a lot on the back and the back of the legs especially when going for any move that involved a cross over but these days I don't get it that much. I used to get very frustrated with it but if you keep at it, you get better and it starts to happen less and less.

Yeah, it's real fun explaining those marks to my wife -- I have a weighted jumprope (weights are in the handles but the rope itself is fairly stout) and it whips the hell out of me if I screw up. Throw in scratches from velcro on a sparring partner's gloves, and sweat, and a few bruises. . . .

:ugh: "No, really, honey. I've been boxing."
