SPECIAL TECHNIQUES OF MUAY THAI

by Serge TREFEU

 

 

Among the combat sports, Muay Thai is really the most complete with also the MMA which also has a wide array of technique. Muay Thai is well the " boxing in eight weapons " because the fighter can use his two fists, the two elbows, the two knees and his two feet!

Furthermore, in Muay Thai, the boxer can grab the leg of his opponent (Tchap Kha), grab his opponent in the nape of the neck and practise a fight to clinch (Pam), throw his opponent to bring him to the ground (Mouun) and even bring down the leg of his opponent to break down him!

The blockings on attack of legs (Yok Kha Bang), of fists (Yok Meu Bang) and of elbows (Yok Sok Bang) also have an important part in the all of the technical movements of Muay Thai!

To control all the techniques of this ancestral sport asks takes time. Many people today practise Muay Thai and train regularly to acquire the various techniques of this very hard sport. After a few years of practice, in the gym, a novice manages to control basic techniques with no problem at all. He can even try more complicated techniques by making sparrings with his companions of club. In the gym, it's rather easy to apply combination of blows and techniques of Muay Thai.
