Hello 

Looking for advice/videos/patreon videos on how 

control the ring, stay off the ropes, cutting off the ring and creating angles.

 

Thanks very much

These are 27 Muay Thai Library sessions filtered out with some Emphasis on Ring Control:

Ring Control: Muay Thai Library

You can see these filtered out on the Posts Page of Sylvie's Patreon, and scrolling down. You can see tags there, it looks like this:

One session that really sticks out in my memory is Kru San of Sitmonchai, you can see that session here:

#33 Kru San Sitmonchai - Control of Pace & Distance when Advancing  (56 min)

There are lots in that list though. If you really want to dive in you can watch the Intensive Series Sylvie did with Karuhat, which is over 30 hours long. It's not all ring control, but large portions of it are. Karuhat has a whole system of leading the opponent where he wants him to be, limiting options, and then striking where they are going. Intensive Series here.

His footwork is the best lol. I seriously love it so much. I dunno, I just "get it" (I think so anyways). I'm torn between his footwork and Namsaknoi's for my favorite (they are very different, but I love both). There is so much balance/power coiled up in there but at the same time it's hard to follow where he is going if you are busy watching his shoulders or head. Every thing comes from his feet off the back foot but with almost equal balance, then the hips follow almost right on top of it. It fucks everything up from a distance standpoint, nothing is consistent. He can be both closer or much further away from you than you would expect. I also really like how he turns both feet out, not many people do that. I'd be curious to know if that is based in Muay Korat style or if he calls that his own. In his movement there are full steps, half beats, feints, etc. Just the general basic movement is a lie, and it's absolutely beautiful.

99% sure it is just his own. He told us he pretty much invented his Muay Thai after success with a single kind of elbow. People started just waiting for it, because his reputation grew, so he had to invent a complete Muay Thai to make elbows possible from any position. I'm sure he would say that he just created it. Karuhat tells us the same thing about his footwork. Nobody taught him, it came from nowhere.

Hahaha that's such a Thai answer.... I should have re-worded that. I would be curious to know if there is a base to this from a documented style or if it is truly unique. Like some of Karuhat's stuff is truly "Karuhat style" (the way he folds elbows in while climbing people), but it's also based in very old technique that he may not have been consciously drawing from.

    • Hi there everyone  Planning on returning to Thailand after three years on December 2022. I' ve been looking into Nakhon Si Tammarat, knowing it to be Hippy's district and a southern hub for great Muay Thai. Research hasn't come up with many choices, and I'd like to see if anyone has any suggestions. I'm a 42 yo female (which is definitely something to take under consideration), not looking to fight at the end of this camp but pretty damn serious about my training, technical input and overall experience. Any thoughts?      
    • Now you don’t need to quarantine to enter Thailand looking to go by end of this year/ early next for 1 month. Can anyone help with gyms id like the gym to have -proper thai training with good trainers not all touristy but not super old school.  -Thai and western fighters so trainers can work with westerners but it’s not full of tourists -opportunity to fight at end of month  -accom in gym or very close  -dosnt need to be super clinch focused but good clinch as thats my weakness  -good trainers with good instruction for westerners  -preferably in Chang Mai as it’s the cheapest and on a budget -don’t need all fancy equipment and stuff  I like the look of santai Muay Thai, hongthong and boon lanna if anyone has experience with them? Thanks for anyone who can help. 
    • Question for Sylvie! When you made the transition to Southpaw….I’m assuming all of your orthodox combos and strikes had a natural flow to them because that was first for you. ..Im wondering how long it took to get a that natural flow in your Southpaw stance?  Also,  if you have any tips on the transition other constant practice in southpaw. Either way thank you for reading this. Have an amazing day!    - Mike C.

    • I can recommend you to visit Kst Muay Thai.. For the Time Being, you can learn the fundamentals of Muay Thai by yourself. That could be done though reading Blogs!! Like Muay Thai Citizen, Fight Supplies, Team Elite etc. But combat sports must be performed with another person. You can develop negative habits that are tough to break if you don't have someone to correct your form. Training with an instructor is by far the most effective way to learn.
    • Hello everybody =) I'm a muaythai researcher from Brazil. I'm looking for information about the best current muaythai trainers in Thailand, unfortunately I didn't find any consistent information.   Can someone help me?
    • I think what's more important than scent is how effective they actually are. In my experience once gloves smell bad, there's no going back. I'd love to find a solution that works.
    • Exceptional display of courage.  Stood up until the end.
    • Hey, I'm familiar with the struggles with partnering with beginners.  Once is a while is fine, but you don't get as much out of the class as you would with someone at your level.  Here are things I've done in the past: 1) ask the advanced women to come help me train (either in class of outside of class)  2) invite the women that are less advanced, but seem keen on learning, to train with me outside of class, say casually for just techniques (I specified no sparring).  Also give them opportunity to suggest what to work on during those times you train together.  The 2nd one was very hard initially for me, as it involved setting up this new group training.   Our gym had ladies' sparring before that ended in disasters, so I tried to steer us away from that.  Also talking to be ppl I don't know and managing multiple new relationships makes me very anxious and mentally exhausted. But that investment of energy pays dividends -  I started this a few years ago and I have a few women from there that developed a lot since and partners when me in class consistently.  We train together outside of class also.  We even met up in parks to train when the gym got shutdown during covid (but small groups outdoor gatherings were allowed).
