Muay Thai Basics (diary entry)

kick to pads13.09.21

My second lesson of the evening was my new client’s second hour of his first Muay Thai course. He has requested more mobility and flexibility training on top of my individual technique development. After a warm-up of mobility and dynamic stretching exercises, we focused on using a four angle directional drill to develop better technique delivery on the move. We began with the jab, angling off and then punching. This was followed by the teep where we took some time to focus more on better posture, balance and execution of this kick before using the previous footwork drill. We then completed 4 x 2 minute rounds of basic combination work on the Thai focus mitts where I also introduced the shin-check. The lesson finished with some static stretching including PNF stretches.
