Saturday morning saw a continuation of the course I covered on Thursday with the same client. This is his penultimate lesson in a 10 hour course of seven lessons, bringing us up to the nine hour point. This particular course is focused entirely on stand-up sparring with a strong bias towards Muay Thai.
After a warm-up of callisthenics and footwork on the agility ladders, we got straight into the following sparring drills:
One for one sparring
Light kick sparring (no shin pads)
Kick return sparring (shin pads)
Clinch (curve knee strike/turn counter knee strike)
One, one-two, one-two-three combination sparring
Teep/jab versus everything sparring
Round-kick/hook versus everything sparring
Combination vs combination sparring
The lesson was finished with PNF stretching.
