Significant Training Techniques in Muay Thai

Posted in Learn muay Thai boxing on November 15th, 2008

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.
