Simple question - what does ‘ feeder’ mean when practicing combinations

Recommended Posts

( new to Muay Thai)

in practice we were doing various combinations  where for example  person A throws a cross then person B parried that cross and throws a cross in return. ( and back and forth with that sort of thing)

 

In that example which person is the feeder? Since both people are throwing strikes I’m not sure. Thx

I think you are both technically "the feeder" (it alternates). Person A "feeds" Person B the cross so that it can be parried, then Person B is counter-striking using their cross but also "feeding" Person A so that Person A can parry. Its just a term for drilling I believe. 

Another example would be Person A "feeding" a teep to Person B so that Person B can parry the teep and then throw a cross. Then you both reset and do this 10 times before switching.

Hahaha I hope that's not too confusing... I think I confused myself a bit just writing it. So much Person A and Person B! 🤣

Let's make it easier and use names instead:
So Nick throws a cross and Mick parries.....

... Where does Trainer Dick step in to correct the two?

 

 

I kid you not, I once wrote a physics test where the professor had put in a part about lightspeed and time dilation and he had ACTUALLY called the 3 persons in his question "Mick", "Nick" and "Dick"... It put a whole highway-system of knots in my brain even though I was able to figure it out. The most difficult part was keeping track of who was who the whole time...
