muay thai in redondo beach
The past few classes we been working the spinning back elbow, fist and kick. All of these tools are great especially within the muay thai realm. The great thing about these strikes is that they all transition and complement one another. Set ups, distance and angles will always dictate which technique you will be able to execute while sparring or moving around in a drill. If you end up right on top of your opponent the spinning back elbow might be the best way to go. If your opponent is at a medium striking range, a powerful spinning back fist wouldn’t be a bad idea. And if you’re a kickboxer who likes the outside long range try to set up that spinning back kick. As cool and effective as these techniques are, remember that basics are best! When you utilize basic footwork and combinations to set up these techniques, you will find much more success in actually landing these hits. If you want a chance to train one of these, tomorrow in the 9am advanced muay thai in redondo beach we will be covering the spinning back kick. See you then!
