Progress with Sticks & Kicks! (diary entry)

muay thai small28.04.21

Wednesday night saw significant improvement with my stick-fighting client and my kickboxing client. In the former’s lesson we blended in diagonal strikes to the legs in addition to the two high angled strikes. These were done with fluid posture transitioning, on the move and from different stances. They were first taught with single stick from each hand then as double sticks. Next I introduced a double-hand grip and put them together for a sequence of 10 techniques.

Kickboxing moved onto combinations seven and eight. These two offer two different tactics. The first is a tight formation of head to body and body to head hand combinations to set up for a long knee and the second is more of a long range combination using three kicks and some drawing footwork at the end.
