Hello. I am trying to incorporate Muay thai rhythm into my movements while training on the heavy bag. I listen to the traditional music and try to move properly. Is there any training video footage of this kind of study ?        Thank you.

Like most things, it's imitative until it's natural. Maybe mimic someone you like for a bit until something clicks, but then just find your beat and go with it. It's like dancing. You can steal choreography for a while, but then you have to actually hit the beats and feel the music for yourself.

I find tire bouncing and shadow most helpful for this, personally.

When youre standing stationary, sway your hips forward and back, shifting your weight from the front to back foot as you do. Never actually stand stationary. Also, use the bag as a dance partner. Use an outstretched arm to maintain the same distance from the bag so that you have to move with it to keep that distance. Dont worry about power on the bag, think more of timing - connecting with the bag as it sways into your strikes. You want to feel every strike sink in and feel good, like a puzzle piece snapping into place. I think when you find that feeling, you will feel the rhythm come. Keep swaying the hips and drawing all your power from the hips.
