Significant Training Techniques in Muay Thai

Muay Thai is the popular Thai kickboxing and is a mixture of several techniques employed in the rest of the forms of martial arts. Most of the times it is termed as the “science of 8 limbs” simply because almost all parts of the body are employed during the fight. The forehead, the fists, elbows, knees, and feet are often used as the weapons. It has been around for more than 2000 years and is basically regarded as the oldest variant of martial arts. Muay Thai was once called the martial art of the kings because of the fact that in 1914 the sons of the King Sen Muajng Ma fought until their death for the throne of their father.

Muay Thai fighters are expected to be strong and powerful since all the movements can really be energy-draining. Muay Thai training then enhances the fighter’s adaptability, strength, and stamina. More so, here are some very important techniques to learn.

The Thai Clinch. This Muay Thai technique is exclusively used for this martial art. The fighter holds the opponent through the head, body, or neck. He then presses his forearm on the collar bone of the opponent. The typical clinching technique applied in Muay Thai is the tapping of the head downward before releasing a throw. He can also cause the opponent to lose balance by throwing him to his left.

The Kru. This one is a tedious technique to learn that calls for hard work during the training. This Muay Thai training technique requires the tradition that the fighter needs to respect his trainer by means of the Wai Kru ritual.

Some important elements employed for the Muay Thai training techniques are running, stretching, and shadow boxing. A Muay Thai fighter must have the “never say die” attitude at all cost.

    LETS TALK MUAY THAI CLINCH ..
    I MUST ASSUME EVERY ONE CAN PUMMEL AND TAKE THE NECK AND TRANSITION THE THREE RANGES AND OPERATE WITH IN THE RANGES!!

    IF YOU DONT KNOW ALL ABOUT THE ABOVE MENTIONED AREAS ASK YOUR INSTRUCTOR TO TEACH YOU EVERY THING YOU NEED TO KNOW!
    IF YOU DONT GET SATIFACATORY EXPLANTIONS IT TIME TO MOVE ON BECAUSE HE CANT TEACH!!!

    NOW I WANT TO DELVE INTO WHAT KIND OF MOVES CAN BE DONE WITH IN THE RANGES AND STRATEGYS TO EMPLOY!

    ONCE AGAIN I SAY ASK YOUR TEACHER TO GIVE A FULL ON DISERTATION ON CLINCH RANGE TRANSITIONS AND MOVES WITH IN SUCH..
    DOES YOUR TEACHER HAVE DRILLS TO HELP DEVELOPE SKILL IN THIS FIGHTING AREA???NOT DOING NECK FIGHTING EVERY WORK OUT .. THINK AROBIC TRAINING IS MORE IMPORTANT THEN NECK WORK ,, YOU WILL NEVER LEARN THE HIGHER LEVEL SKILL OF MUAY THAI..

    I WANT TO BRING UP A TOPIC THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT ”KNEE DEFENCE ”WHILST IN THE CLINCH ANY RANGE..
    USE OF THE KNEE CAP TO INTERCEPT INCOMMING KNEE ATTACKS ..
    USE OF THE LEG SHIN AREA TO HOLD DOWN INCOMMING KNEES >>THIS IS A GRAPE VINE INSIDE OR OUTSIDE.. IN THAI LAND EVERY LITTLE BOY SEES ALL FIGHTERS DOING THIS AND ACCEPTS THIS AS THE WAY ITS DONE. OUT SIDE OF THAI LAND FIGHTERS ARE EXTRA LAZY AND WONT LEARN THE DEFENCE AND THE GRAPE VINE ..

    YOU THINK EVERY THING I IS SAID IS A LIE AND HAS NO PLACE IN MUAY THAI …
    CANT LISTEN …CANT LEARN .. YOU MAY ONE OF THE MANY UN-TRAINABLE .

    ULTIMATLY GO FIND A CHAMPION TO TEACH YOU ALL HIS WINNING MOVES.
