Tonight’s lesson was hour seven of my couple client’s Muay Thai course [pictures do not depict this particular couple]. Based on feedback from the previous lesson, it was decided that we go straight into full Thai rules free-sparring for 7 x 3 minute rounds before looking at learning points.
We looked at counters to spinning techniques and I encouraged more angled and circular footwork. Guard retention was important too as was looking out for opportunities when an opponent’s guard was down. Clinching is improving on the whole with both my clients doing well to unbalance their opponents, timing strikes and sweeps.
