Kickboxing – Angles of Attack
The goal of combat sports is to hit and not get hit! This week, we will focus on different ways of “stepping off the line” to avoid getting hit after we hit our opponents. A good rule of thumb is to step to the side you finish on. So, if you finish with your lead hand, step to your lead side. If you finish with your rear hand, exit to your rear side. This week, we drill the pivot step to the lead side and the slide step to our rear side. Get off the tracks!
Muay Thai – Boxing Offense
This week in Muay Thai, we will focus on the sweet science! Although most people associate Muay Thai with heavy kicks, elbows, and knees, boxing plays an important role in the sport. We will look at the differences and similarities between Muay Thai and western boxing, and then work on our offense this week.
