Kickboxing – Leg Kicks
This week in KB 1, we look at attacking the legs of our opponent, using the outside low kick and the inside low kick. These two kicks are designed to attack the lead leg of our opponent and cause damage, which in turn with slow our opponent down, and opens up another level of our offense (head, body, legs). We will also look at the basic defense for low kicks, by “checking,” and how to counter and return properly.
Muay Thai – Clinch – Practical Application
This week in Muay Thai, we will work on taking what we learned last week and putting it into application! Classes this week will consist of positional and technique review followed by “live” rounds of clinch; working with various body types and partners with the goal of getting more comfortable in the clinch!

Always remember this, and remember the impact you have on others. The things you say, the things you do, and the way you talk to others all have an impact on our community. Please make sure that you are having a positive impact and going out of your way to make feel people welcome. This includes: not using foul language, not making jokes at the expense of others, and always making sure we are mindful of others’ feelings.
