Friday night’s lesson brought my client up to the 8.5 point of his course. Tonight I continued his son’s Muay Thai training. We based our training around 12 x 3 minute rounds. After yesterday’s assessment, I decided to focus more on establishing better defensive postures and movement.

We began with establishing footwork. Then I layered immediate counter-work, training to attack and defend with jabs and crosses. This moved onto hooks and uppercuts before layering in teeps and round kicks with scooping blocks and shin-checks. We looked at developing a strong shin-check stance. Later rounds became more intensive.
