In this video, Coach Lonnie Beck demonstrates and explains the jab. The jab is the first of the basic punches required for Muay Thai Kickboxing.
Muay Thai Kickboxing Includes:
Footwork- This is the most basic and important part of Kickboxing. Learning how to properly move, close distance and 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- High kicks, low kicks and teeps(push kicks) are an effective way to create distance from an attacker and to easily dismantle them 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 it too close to kick or punch is when we use the world famous "Thai Clinch". Pulling in your opponent and controlling their head, neck and shoulders allows you to, in turn, control their whole body.
There are many more aspects of Thai Boxing that students will experience that cannot be expressed in words. 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 the also discover themselves at the same time.
