Wednesday night saw the nephew and uncle team continue their exploration of Muay Thai with Western Boxing integration. As with the previous lesson, training was divided up into three minute rounds. However, the senior lesson had a period of specific advanced combination and technique analysis.

Senior Lesson Plan
We began with a look at several advanced Muay Thai combinations. These included setups for the cobra punch, the spinning heel kick, the jumping round kick, the knee bomb, climbing smash-down elbow and climbing elbow slash.

Looking forward we are planning to alternate the senior lessons between more technique-based training and more sparring/conditioning-based training.
