When I was in Thailand a few years ago I noticed something you don't see as much of in the US and thats repetition work with roundhouse kicks, knees, teeps and punches. Fighters spammed out hundreds of them. Since then I've watched a lot of Thai's train on YouTube and I've always been interested in that type of training but never found any English speaking people break it down and explain the reasoning behind them. I was wondering if some of you more experienced guys on here could break down in detail why fighters do it, how much they tend to do a day and all the benefits. I know it helps sharpen up the kicks but I'm sure there is a lot more benefits to them since every camp swears by it. I wonder what effect it has on balance and if that is one reason among others why Thai's have such good balance. Some examples: The second guy to come on in this clip probably has the sharpest kicks I've seen. Look how long this kid knees for. You can tell he was exhausted at the end. Buakaw kicks.
