  1. One of the simplest ways to increase the pace of your kicks is to use ankle weights. They also increase the potency of your kicks. The benefits of using ankle weights during Muay Thai training are minimal. You just do any kicking drill you choose while wearing the weights around your legs. Your kicking strength and quickness can be increased even by shadowboxing with ankle weights. Your legs get heavier as a result of the ankle weight, so you must use more force to move at your usual speed. When you remove the ankle weights after being accustomed to throwing kicks while carrying that extra weight, your kicks will go much more quickly.
  2. Muay Khao fighters depend on their knees to do most of the damage. While not all Muay Khao fighters have full control over their middles or elbows, all are knee specialists. A good Muay Khao fighter uses his knees not only to attack but to counter as well. Yodwicha is a perfect example of a high-level Muay Khao fighter who was good at grinding his rivals with his knees. Some of the most entertaining fights happen when Muay Khao fighters are faced by Muay Mat. This is because punchers love to catch knee fighters with their hands down.
  3. The tactics used in Dutch kickboxing are heavily influenced by Japanese kickboxing, which is in turn influenced by Muay Thai. The variety of weapons used in the two striking techniques is the most noticeable distinction.
  4. I'm at the same point!! i was recently reading a blog, and that was very helpful about the sparring. Francis Ngannou's viral video appeared in that blog and I noticed how beautifully Francis picked every move of his opponent, I think you should watch that video also, you can learn many things about your topic!!
  5. There are many Gyms I can recommend you right now, recently i was reading a blog and got to see the best gyms in Thailand, Here's the list of Muay Thai Gyms!!
  6. When I compare the difficulty of different combat sports, I usually do so from the standpoint of competition. Beginners, on the other hand, may have a very different experience. Cardio kickboxing classes, for example, differ significantly from traditional kickboxing sessions in that they combine a fast-paced cardio workout with kickboxing techniques. Their mission is to assist people lose weight or be in better condition by engaging them in activities that are more enjoyable than a typical fitness facility routine. Full contact sparring is not used, and the emphasis is on endurance rather than technique. In traditional kickboxing classes, technique accounts for 70-80% of the training (drills; sparring) and 20-30% of the conditioning (rope jumping, push-ups; running, etc). Because conditioning is the main focus of the workouts in cardio-kickboxing courses, that ratio is roughly 50/50 or even 60 percent conditioning. So, in terms of endurance, cardio, and other factors, cardio kickboxing workouts can be more difficult when you are just getting started. However, traditional kickboxing programs demand a lot of skill, which can be difficult to acquire, especially if you don't have any experience with other striking martial arts. Your fists will feel strange, your kicks will feel weak and slow, and you won't be able to throw high kicks at first, and even when you kick, your shins will hurt. That is, however, entirely typical. Before you can start punching and kicking correctly, you'll need hours of shadowboxing and heavy bag work. Sparring is another difficult component of your kickboxing workout.
  7. That's one of the best gym!!
  8. First focus on mental Drill. Mental practice is the mental stimulation of a movement without the occurrence of the physical ability. To put it another way, it's the mental rehearsal of a skill or a group of techniques. Most BJJers have had BJJ daydreams or may even conduct mental drilling while sleeping. "According to neuromuscular theory, visualization activates the same motor pathways as if the skill were physically done, albeit at a lower level." Use the best gi's like venum, Fuji, Elite for your inner satisfaction. This activation, which is equivalent to actual movement but at a lesser level, has been demonstrated in studies utilizing EMG equipment." Mental drilling has one advantage that I like: it can be done almost anywhere and at any time. You are not bound by space or geographical place. You also don't have to worry about injuries or weariness with mental drills. This is especially useful if you're recovering from an injury and can't physically train. It's just you and your thoughts with mental drilling!
  9. Mouthguards and groin protection are worn by Lethwei practitioners. During competition, however, they merely use tape and gauze to cover their hands instead of gloves. Athletes can win a bout by using Styles like headbutts, punches, elbows, knees, kicks, clinching, sweeps, and throws across three to five rounds.
  10. beathleticfitness gym would a good fit for your website!!
  11. For The sake of Your Life!! you can do some punches practice at that time, when you're being attacked and see your strength, If you feel that you're not of his strength then just keep blocking!!
  12. I'm at the same Opinion!! For six months, wearing minimalist footwear will boost foot strength by 60% and make you more stable on your feet. The outcomes of a recent study done by the University of Liverpool were as follows. The researchers wanted to see how wearing minimalist shoes for regular activities affected foot strength. They used 46 healthy people to perform a foot strength test, which measured toe-flexion strength. Half of the group was then required to wear these types of shoes. Stealth II minimalist footwear for at least 70% of the time while shod, for at least six days each week. The other half were told to adhere to the same basic criteria by wearing their most often used regular footwear.
  13. Shadowboxing forces you to focus on your own body movements and proprioception (awareness of your body in relation to its environment) without looking for the satisfying feel or sound of striking. This is a good thing because people often stray into bad technique in order to hit harder or hear what they think sounds impressive. This absence allows you to focus solely on your own proper striking technique, which is rarely the case during bag work, mitt/pad work or sparring. There is no rebound energy, which forces you to strike and return with all of your own energy. This allows you to throw faster combinations (albeit a little off if you're not great at visualizing- solution is to pick a striking point in the distance). It also requires, in my estimation, nearly double the energy. To my last example, while I can generally breeze through an intense 40 minute heavy bag session, even 15 minutes of shadowboxing at similarly intense pace (3 Thai rounds or 5 western boxing rounds) would absolutely exhaust me.
  14. Never had a chance to visit any Atlanta are gyms. But most times I've heard the big problem is Traffic.
  15. I Think this forum is the best informational source for all of us... Every little thing is discussed here.!!
  16. I know we're all guilty of it, but all good things take time. Whatever you're working on, you'll need a strategy, a timeline, and objectives. The same is true when it comes to studying Muay Thai! So, here are our top ten ideas to help you develop your Muay Thai abilities more quickly. Look for a reputable gym and a trained instructor This is another no-brainer. Before committing to a gym, go to a few different ones and test out a few different trainers. Talk to others about where they train, the benefits and drawbacks, and so on. When you're ready to make a decision, choose one gym and a trainer you enjoy working with. Then make a time sheet and keep track of when you started. Review your progress and opinions with your trainer on a frequent basis, and give it your all. Recommit or reassess everything after the first year or so. However, don't chop and change at every chance or when things don't seem to be going as planned. First, put it out there, then reconsider. Third, speak with your coach. If at all possible, keep a winning horse! Gym hoppers are the one thing that trainers and clubs despise. Don't be a gym hopper; it won't help you. Don't become a gym hopper, I repeat! Unless you have a compelling cause to do so. However, you have already committed a mistake in point 1 while making your decision. For example, there is a separate blog here that can help you choose the correct gym, or Muay Thai Advisor can help you find various Muay Thai clubs. Keep your expectations in check! This should go without saying. Set reasonable and attainable training goals that you can revisit on a regular basis. Don't be too humble, but don't be too honest. Setting lofty goals is the only way to attain success. It is not a real objective to just become another world champion (there are many of them, and it says nothing about you as a boxer). For example, a goal may be that you are pleased with yourself and your performance. It's like a brawl. You can only win a fight if you are happy with your performance. So, if you're not completely happy with your performance, focus on the weaknesses and make improvements. The objective is to be able to fight as smoothly as possible and to be able to compete against any opponent in your weight class. It is the greatest aim, but you will see it for yourself in the following years as you pursue your dream of being a Muay Thai fighter. Another achievable aim may be to travel to Thailand to learn and train Muay Thai one day. The surest and quickest method to become infected with Muay Thai is to go on a training vacation to the sport's birthplace. This would also help you develop your unique Muay Thai Style. The entire trip gets more fascinating and maybe life changing once you have trained in Thailand and experienced this lifestyle and martial art there. This is also one of the greatest, most enjoyable, and quickest methods to enhance your abilities!
