SwiftKick Celebrates Muay Thai Training

Undeniably, martial arts training offers immense health benefits. At their core, martial arts styles incorporate training to build and strengthen discipline, focus, self-respect, and perseverance. Every style of martial arts has elements of self-defense that have proven time and time again to build confidence and skills that students are able to use to protect themselves. The skills learned in martial arts translate into greater success in training and life. At SwiftKick, we want to bring the unique style of Muay Thai to our Carlsbad students!

Muay Thai is Thailand’s national sport and is considered one of the most technical martial art styles. Muay Thai trains students to use eight limbs which includes the arms, legs, knees and elbows. It is easy to appreciate this style of martial arts after learning the rules of movement and engagement and their relevance to traditional techniques. Muay Thai is a style of martial arts that can be taught to students of all ages and fitness levels.

SwiftKick’s Comprehensive Muay Thai Training

In Muay Thai training, SwiftKick's dedicated team of experienced instructors train students in many different elements unique to this style, including:

  • Stance—The stance in Muay Thai is the first thing that students must learn because the stance and stability of the stance are the building blocks for Muay Thai movements.
  • Footwork – footwork is dependent on stance and posture and will determine the power behind strikes and overall movement.
  • Punches—Muay Thai punches resemble Western boxing, and fists are considered vitally important to effective Muay Thai. Jabs, crosses, hooks, and upper punches are all part of excellent Muay Thai training.
  • Kicks—In Muay Thai, kicks are taught for defensive and offensive purposes. Basic kicks like the low kick and roundhouse kick are taught, with some advanced students learning the switch kick and head kick.
  • Teep–teep are similar to jabs in boxing and are also called push kicks. There are many different styles of push kicks, and depending on your level of Muay Thai training, various difficulty of teep types will be introduced.
  • Knees – knees are commonly used in Muay Thai competitions, and this skill was used in the popular Street Fighter video game, which makes it recognizable to many. Knee strikes offer power and effectiveness and are used frequently in ring matches.
  • Elbows – the often overlooked elbows are part of the eight limbs associated with Muay Thai training. Elbow strikes can be similar to a hook punch, including horizontal, diagonal, upward, and downward.
