I like your left switch kick.
Thanks man. It's my best kick, I injured my foot which took nearly a year to heal and all I could do was left kick for that year
I like the left hook to the body.
Shin, as muay khao specialist, do you spend most of your time training in the clinch?
Thanks, its something I have been working, I have been able to pull it off in a fight, but only because I have been focusing on improving my boxing for the past few years.
I used to work the clinch a lot, but not as much anymore because I felt I was relying to heavily on my clinch. My clinch "saved" me in a lot of fights, so I needed to improve my weaker areas, which is why i have been working my boxing a lot.
Killer. Good stuff, man.
Just have to improve the balance in the kicks
Always a party pooper (not me this time).
Good demo of the strength in Muay Thai technique. Also in generating power from a high stance. Don't know why boxing technique is necessary to fix Muay Thai, but that's my ignorance of the two.
Your'e an obvious challenge in full contact.
Nice, not really what I like but if you like this stuff thats great, do some Saenchai moves or combine more angles and techniques for video audience purposes that it is.
I loves watching Saenchai because he makes it look entertaining and almost like his challenging the other guy LoL
More sound welcomed as well, i think the type of gloves and pads people use creates more thud / bang sound unsure but you hear some guys lay into the pads with hugs thud / bang sound. I love that, again for audience entertainment purposes. Boxing is probably where you get that output sound more often i think.
This isn't what I like either. The point is, and I've come back more than once to view this video, we have a strong Muay Thai player's approach to the kind of competition one is likely to experience against an experienced Muay Thai stylist.
As for the pad sound, I think you're picking at some obvious feature when it's a sign of very significant power being generated by technique. One in full contact, such as MMA, needs to learn to deal with such.
I think this is a much better lesson, and demo than I've seen on many-an MMA camps demos. Good power & good technique in a practice pad session.
As a competitor, why go off with some other big name expert when this is the kind of tough competitor you will be facing should you begin & work your way through competition? How are you gonna get past this guy? We just saw prodigy Kevin Lee flame out.
