Mixed Martial Arts & Muay Thai Kickboxing : Thai Kickboxing Movement Drills


Hi I’m Andrew Bridden here on behalf of expertvillage.com
talking about Muay Thai kick boxing. This is a drill we use for movement basically this
drill teaches use how to use the ring, move around the ring and use it to our advantage.
It also teaches us proper spacing in our feet. So I’m just going to move towards a reference
point in the center of the ring. In this case the bag and as I move I’m keeping my feet
equally spaced and I’m on the balls of my feet. We would go all the way around the ring
like this advancing the throw, punches as we come in, movement, moving laterally forward.
Just all kinds of different drills to improve my foot work. We could also make a little
more difficult and improve our shoulder conditioning and our endurance have weights in our hands.
So you do this for a while and eventually your shoulders would start to burn, your legs
would start to burn. Then when you take the weights off you will feel right there. Like
that and you just get use to really moving around utilizing the whole ring to your advantage.
Cause what you don’t want to do in Muay Thai is stay stationary and just sit here and try
to slug it out on someone. You would get knock out that way so moving is crucial. That is
just one of the drills that we do to improve our mobility in the ring.

  1. my buddys own the "StandAlone" in the add in the top right of the page. 😀
    (dont get disscounts tho.. =/

    but yeah agreed that weight thing looks hella helpful. 🙂

  2. @ ianput. if you want to start mma the best thing you can work on right now is your cardio. If you were just trying to get big and strong you'd have the wrong approach to applying techniques. Good cardio will let you last through sessions and will allow you to train hard consistently.

    as for cardio, try the HIIT approach. Sprint for 10 seconds, rest for 30, repeat. That's one cycle. Try to keep doing these for 5 minutes, then 10 minutes, and so on.

    it's hell. but man are you an engine after
