Kickboxing – Teeps and Push Kicks
This week in kickboxing, 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 the teep!
Muay Thai – Orthodox Vs Southpaw (Open Stance Fighting)
One of the most classic match ups in combat sports: orthodox vs southpaw. The majority of fighters prefer the orthodox stance, so it’s important to know how to face an opposite-stance fighter. Many tactics that normally work against an orthodox fighter will not work against a lefty! We will look at basic offensive strategies, basic defense, and countering the lefty attacks.

Thoughts – Our Community and Supporting Each Other
One thing we are very proud of at Easton is the supportive community that all of you have helped to create. Being surrounded by people with similar interests and goals often fosters a community that helps its members to push each other to be at their very best. If you ever feel like you are struggling for one reason or another, or feel your motivation waning, find someone here to talk to about it. Whether it’s an instructor, or another member, open up, and find an ear to talk to. Conversely, please always try to be there for others when you see them struggling, or you if you notice their consistency drop off. Even though all of you are probably very busy, and every day is jam-packed with things to do, when you come to train, try to immerse yourself in the community even a little bit. Surrounding yourself with people yearning for self-improvement can never be an unhealthy thing to do.
