So, what changes?
We use the mechanics of this drill to zero in on each of the above then begin to implement it during technical Muay Thai sparring!
What Muay Thai Kickboxing Teaches You:
- Footwork. This is the most basic and important part of kickboxing. Learning how to move properly, to close distance, and to create distance is the essence of all martial arts.
- Punches. Whether it is a jab, cross, hook, or uppercut, you will learn the proper way to throw effective hand strikes with pinpoint accuracy.
- Kicks. This is the reason for the name “kickboxing.” High kicks, low kicks, and teeps (push kicks) are effective ways to create distance from an attacker and to easily neutralize the threat at the same time.
- Knees and elbows. This is what separates Muay Thai from everything else. No other martial art uses knees and elbows as effectively as Thai boxing.
- Clinch. When your opponent is too close to kick or punch, that’s when we use the world-famous “Thai clinch.” Pulling in your opponent and controlling his head, neck, and shoulders allows you to, in turn, control his whole body.
Muay Thai Kickboxing is more than kicks and punches
There are many more aspects of Thai boxing that students will experience that cannot be expressed in this brief space.
You will learn more about yourself than you ever knew possible. Build friendships and experience true teamwork.
It is often said that when a student discovers Muay Thai, he also discovers himself at the same time.
