Kickboxing – Round Kicks
The round kick is the most important strike to learn in kickboxing and Muay Thai. The motion of the round kick is the same motion as swinging a baseball bat, except our shin is the bat! You must use your whole body to generate power in the round kick, the only relaxed part of the body is the kicking leg! Get your shins ready for a lot of kicks this week!

Muay Thai – Teep Kick
The push kicks and teeps are long range weapons designed to maintain distance or off-balance your opponent.
