I like the cage. It makes me practice harder and better. I have only practiced 2 times with wearing a cage. I made improvements both times. It has been a while and I feel like I have suffered. (Did I just say, I have suffered by not being hit. Oh no)
You know where I stand on the cage. I like it and totally think it is worth the expense. Keep the face pretty…KEY. My arms, elbows and knees may look like they fought with a cheese greater and lost but gosh darnit, my face will go unblemished…well, mostly.
