Working the Lead (diary entry)

High Kick - Kickboxing02.10.2021

Lessons six and seven of my client’s first course included training an hour senior Muay Thai and then an hour for two juniors.

The senior class mainly focused on technique placement and movement against an opponent. We spent a while just looking at the teep and then at the importance of stepping into strong positions. The lesson finished with 3 x 3 minute rounds on the focus mitts working through combinations that incorporated the kicks used earlier and each round finished with 10 seconds of intensive speed or power punches and kicks.

After the warm-up the juniors were taken individually for 2 minute rounds of working the jab, the lead teep and eventually the rear round kick and the cross. I also spent time using the guard retention drill.
