Kickboxing – Push Kicks (Teep)

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 – Elbows (Sok) and Short-Range Weapons

This week in Muay Thai, we will focus on on Zone 1 weapons: elbows and knees. We will look at how to transition from Zone 2 into Zone 1 safely with strikes, and how to combine elbows and knees on the inside. We will also continue to study the Thai Long Guard and how we can use it to get into Zone 1 while defending against punches.

Kids – The Three T’s – Tell

This week we’re talking about how to stop a bully with the three Ts. Our first T was Talk, working things out with the bully verbally. When that doesn’t work, it’s time to Tell. Tell a teacher or parent or another responsible adult what is going on, and ask for their help.

Thoughts – Positive Self-Talk

“Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are probably right.” Our self-image, and how we appear to others, is largely predicated on how we speak and think about ourselves. If all we do is talk about how we “can’t do things” or how we “aren’t good at things,” then we will never be able to do things, or do them well because of our own self-imposed limitations. When you impose limitations on yourself, and you identify with failure, then you will welcome failure. Conversely, if you identify with power and success, you will welcome success. Basically, how we speak of ourselves and the language we use, becomes our self-fulfilling prophecy.
