Muay Thai – Teep Offense and Strategy
This week in Muay Thai, we will focus on using the teep, which translates to “foot jab” in Thai. The teep is a versatile weapon that can be used for range finding, disruption, off-balance your opponent, or setting up another attack. We will look at the mechanics of this kick then explore the different uses of it, especially for distance and balance manipulation.
