Beginner want to learn Muay femur Lerdsila style fighting


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Just became a patreon member because I've started to be really interested in Muay Thai. I've been doing basic techniques and exercises at my gym that has a heavy bag. My favorite fighter I've seen is Lerdsila, I really like his tricky and evasive style of fighting. So I've been trying to emulate some of his combos that consists of feints and tricky combos. I just wanted to maybe get some general information on what you think is the best way to start learning the Muay femur style of Muay Thai. Also a more specific question is I've been trying to learn the question mark kick that Lerdsila and Saenchai tend to use. With my rear leg I can manage doing the question mark kick decently, I can still use improvement. But when I try with my lead leg I seem to not have enough hip flexibility for it. What are some good hip dexterity and flexibility stretches or drills you can recommend to help my kicks.

 

This is my first post and I'm excited to be apart of this community. 

Thanks

Hi, welcome to the community! For hip flexibility I have this recommendation: 

 

However, I suspect it's less to do with flexibility in a general sense, but that your back foot isn't at the same width/position that your lead foot is when you throw the kick. When we switch our stance or do things opposite from our dominant side, we often don't position the body with symmetry. See where you put your lead foot in relation to your shoulder and hips, then see if it's the same on the other side. Likely, you're too narrow.

Learning Femeu style is 99% moving and feeling. This means lots and lots of shadowboxing and sparring. Experimenting, messing with your partners, seeing if you can trick and fool them, etc. Far more an "imitation game" of watching your favorite fighter and then impersonating them than it is a combination or set of particular "moves" to make you evasive. You can steal the techniques, but you have to just do them and do them forever until they look natural.

In the library, Namsaknoi, Karuhat, Silapathai, Attachai are all good for learning some of these techniques.

Thanks a lot for the reply, I'm already half way through the Silapathai video since I knew he is from Jocky gym where a lot of my favorite fighter are from and there is a lot of good info that I learned already. I'll keep in mind my symmetry when throwing kicks from my weaker side.

You don't. Not for now at least. 

Your best bet is to make sure in a muay thai class regularly and learning the basics, but when I say learning the basics I don't mean understanding them in principle, but I mean drilling them over and over, in the same way a Vasyl Lomachenko would. 

Lerdsila isn't actually doing anything crazy or advanced. He just has perfect fundamentals, because he's so comfortable there, that frees him up to feint more and throw his brazillian kicks with more accuracy! So don't get too worried about if you're doing what he would be doing in that situation, because you're going to have a very different upbringing in Muay Thai to him! 

Like Sylvie mentioned! There's going to be a ton of sparring and moving involved, lots of shadow boxing! But so long as you've mastered those fundamentals you'll be able to develop something similar to what he does with hard work.

I've trained with Lerdsila and he's really fun to watch.  He's also really nice.  But he is the way he is because he is so confident in what he knows.  When he's throwing kicks or goofing off, everyone stops to watch because its always so good.

That's awesome that you got to train with him. Thanks for sharing

With those Femeu fighters, of course we see their cool jedi mindtrick moves, but a lot of them also have a real solid body kick when you watch them in training. (Even a lot of their tricks & feints etc are off or involve the body kick). Like.... stunning when you watch them throw just one of those on a bag... the delivery speed is crazy, disgustingly powerful on impact, and right back to sender with re-obtained guard, and every detail of that one attack and transition to the next detail is seamless. So is a a BJJ guy throwing up an armbar from the guard - there's like 9 details and steps involved in that 1 attack, and he has to make sure all 9 are right and bleed into eachother, for the whole thing to work. But to us it just looks like 1 thing.

Drilling the strong side rear body kick on the bag over and over were the orders given to me, but it's also the running, personally. We hear this advice millions of times from good guys further down the road than us, that running is everything blah blah blah. But after a while you realise it kinda is super true, and they're right that running tonnes every day makes your body kick stronger. Dunno why, it just does.

    • Don't know if this brand offers shin guards but might as well check them out. I bought a few pairs of shorts from them a while ago and was genuinely impressed. https://siamkickfight.com/
    • Hi all, I have paid a deposit to a gym in Pai near Chiang Mai to train at in January. I am now concerned about the pollution levels at that time of year because of the burning season. Can you recommend a location that is likely to have safer air quality for training in January? I would like to avoid Bangkok and Phuket, if possible. Thank you!
    • He Returned To The Mongkol A bit of historical context, Somphong who lost vs Samarn above would return to the Muay Thai ring in 1948 to face the feared "Giant Ghost" Suk (grandfather to Sagat), a former imprisoned murderer, who attacked and knocked down Somphong so violently that his corner threw in towel, and it was reported that Suk was boo'd by the crowd for how brutal he was. Suk was a figure of terror in the Muay Thai scene in his day. Historians have pointed out that he was in direct contrast to the more gentlemanly matinee idol starts of Muay Thai and boxing of the 1930-1940s (images of masculine charm and handsomeness persisted through the Golden Age), and was in part promoted by the Fascist regime to move away from reflected composed Royalty, and Royal political power. His transgressive, violent image was a nakleng symbolic of a politics of The People ("Das Volk") as the Phibun dictatorship represented them (it had been aligned philosophically and militarily with Hitler & Japan in WW2). Somphong was nicknamed "atomic fist" (it seems), after the American power that ended the war with Japan. Suk Prasarthinpimai was about 36 years old here, said to have fought into his 40 or even 50s. from this Facebook Post here "ยักษ์ผีโขมด ดวลโหด ซ้ายปรมาณู" วันนี้เมื่อ 76ปีก่อน... วันที่ 16 พ.ค.2491(1948) ศึกชิงยอดมวยไทย ณ สนามกีฬากีฑาสถานแห่งชาติ กรุงเทพมหานคร .."ยักษ์ผีโขมด" สุข ปราสาทหินพิมาย ตำนานยอดมวยไทยผู้ยิ่งใหญ่จากโคราช โชว์โหดถล่มแหลกไล่ถลุง เอาชนะน็อคยก3 "ซ้ายปรมาณู" สมพงษ์ เวชสิทธิ์ นักชกกำปั้นหนักจากเพชรบุรี ดีกรีอดีตแชมป์มวยสากลรุ่นเวลเตอร์เวทและมิดเดิลเวทของประเทศสิงคโปร์ ผู้กลับมาสวมแองเกิลชกมวยไทยอีกครั้ง ...โดยก่อนเกมส์การชกใครๆก็มองว่าสุขจะสู้พลังกำปั้นซ้ายอันหนักหน่วงรุนแรง และความเจนจัดบนสังเวียนของ สมพงษ์ เวชสิทธิ์ ไม่ได้ แต่พอเอาเข้าจริงปรากฎว่า สุข ถล่ม สมพงษ์ อย่างเหี้ยมเกรียม เอาเป็นเอาตาย ไม่มีคำว่าปราณี จนพี่เลี้ยงของสมพงษ์ต้องโยนผ้ายอมแพ้ในยกที่3 ...สุขถึงกับโดนแฟนมวยโห่ หาว่าชกโหดร้ายทารุณเกินไป คิดฆ่าเพื่อนร่วมอาชีพ (ดราม่าเลยว่างั้น) ทำให้ไม่ค่อยมีใครอยากขึ้นชกกับสุข และสุขจึงหาคู่ชกที่เหมาะสมยากมากยิ่งขึ้น ..สุข เผยว่าที่ตนต้องชกแบบนั้นเพราะว่ากลัว ซ้ายปรมาณูของสมพงษ์เหมือนกัน จึงต้องการรีบเผด็จศึกเร็ว ไม่อยากให้ยืดเยื้อ อนึ่งการชกครั้งนี้..

Until Sompong's mentor had to throw in the towel and surrender in the third round. ...Suk even got booed by boxing fans He said that the punch was too cruel and brutal. Thinking about killing a professional colleague (Drama, that's all) causing not many people to want to fight with Suk. And Suk found it even more difficult to find a suitable fight partner. ..Suk revealed that he had to fight like that because he was afraid. Somphong's atomic left is the same. therefore wanted to quickly put an end to the war I don't want it to drag on. Incidentally, this fight..

    • Hi, this might be out of the normal topic, but I thought you all might be interested in a book-- Children of the Neon Bamboo-- that has a really cool Martial Arts instructor character who set up an early Muy Thai gym south of Miami in the 1980s. He's a really cool character who drives the plot, and there historically accurate allusions to 1980s martial arts culture. However, the main thrust is more about nostalgia and friendships.    Can we do links? Childrenoftheneonbamboo.com Children of the Neon Bamboo: B.

    • Davince Resolve is a great place to start. 
    • I see that this thread is from three years ago, and I hope your journey with Muay Thai and mental health has evolved positively during this time. It's fascinating to revisit these discussions and reflect on how our understanding of such topics can grow. The connection between training and mental health is intricate, as you've pointed out. Finding the right balance between pushing yourself and self-care is a continuous learning process. If you've been exploring various avenues for managing mood-related issues over these years, you might want to revisit the topic of mental health resources. One such resource is The UK Medical Cannabis Card, which can provide insights into alternative treatments.
