  1. Hi SunAndSteel, How is it in Sitsongpeenong? I'm in Lausanne. I train near the m1 stop Vigie.
  2. Hello everyone, I finally decided to come train in thailand this summer (august). Southpaw I'm an european advanced beginner / intermediate and I want to practice my technique and sparring as a southpaw. One thing that's annoying in my current gym (in switzerland) is that the instructor always makes exercises for regular stances (and even ask me to switch mine to perform the exercise). For I figured I'd learn faster (and more sparring tricks) with a southpaw instructor. Maybe? How to Also, any step by step advice to choose a camp and handle the logistic (like hosting, etc.) would be much appreciated because I'm not used to travel and I feel a bit lost. I think it would be good to train with thais (because that's why I come!) but I'm looking for comfortable enough hosting (single quiet room, A/C, wifi, private bathroom) so that I can really focus on the training without having to handle living conditions too different than what I'm used to. I've read good review on french websites about SitSongpeenong which seems rather easy to setup because that have hosting and everything (http://sitsongpeenong.com/muay-thai/) but it is really expensive. Best, Julien
  3. Hello all, I'm not very active on the forum (never really was, btw) and not as much into muay thai as I used to be, but I still read the website sometimes. It's a great work. So I just wanted to tell Sylvie to keep going because she's doing an amazing job both writing and training. :smile:
  4. Got it ! Thank you :) Happy new year :sorcerer: (I'm two days early)
  5. Quote : "Hey, I love that you posted these - it's a cool idea to have a community "workshop" on technique, to borrow a word from writers." Thanks, I wasn't sure the forum was a good place for such a personal question :sweat: I'll keep an eye on your advice, thank you very much ! :smile: :thanks: What do you mean by : " the tighter you keep that arm " ? Should it be closer to my face ? Thanks ! :thanks:
  6. I think that it's an equilibrium between "power" and "control". If you spin then it's likely that you have more power (momentum) in the kick (because you can't stop the movement) while if you don't spin and stop the kick in the middle, then I guess you didn't put so much power into the kick and the momentum is low enough that you can stop your movement... No ?
  7. Hello ! I discovered 8limbs.us quite recently and I find it amazing ! Thanks for all the good videos ! After watching the floating block, I decided to try it myself in order to improve my (still imperfect) kicks. So here is my question : after training, I recorded two very short videos at home and since I don't see what's still wrong with my kicks, but I know they are not perfect yet, I though I could ask here :sweat: I'm interested in every details : arms position, legs position, hips rotation, etc. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDJGbSZi9bk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R52m7cZ8IJY I know the quality of the vid isn't perfect, but I didn't dare to record at the gym... Thanks ! :thanks:
