Marching Knee Switch-Hitting (diary entry)

Monday night brought my clients up the sixth hour of their 10 hour course on switch-hitting my Muay Thai. Tonight we looked at using marching knees to set up a mirror-side attack. After a warm-up of specific callisthenics, mobility and dynamic stretching exercises, we moved onto switch-hitting drills using shuffles and direction changing. I then taught two set-ups using marching knees. Both used a rear leg teep stepping into a mirror-side stance (typically southpaw), followed by two marching knees . The first combination finished with a spear or diagonal knee. The second put a lead slap down parry/horizontal or slashing elbow strike on the end. We then sparred for intensive 6 x 30 seconds on and off bouts.
