Thai Kickboxing video tutorial part 2

Combination jab, cross hook uppercut. The punches can be executed with more stable stance. As you can see on the video in the uppercut the body is slightly leaning away from the direction of the punch.

This is acceptable, however it is really crucial to know what is your sport.

In boxing we look for full stability so practicing the uppercuts or hooks you need to keep your centre of gravity or centre of mass very close to the floor keeping your bum behind and using your body weight.

If we look at kickboxing, low kickboxing or Thai boxing you could have the benefit of this leaning away if you are already integrating your kick in the combination.

I always suggest to practice both ways to provide maximum flexibility to react to kicks or punches. I also demonstrate how to work with a partner, you do not necessary need to have pads to work with another person.

The second combination is jab, cross, roll, cross hook. You cannot see the footwork on this video but we will post it in the future.

Make sure you rotate your hips and that is how you set up the punch on the opposite side! You do not need to rotate too much I always suggest to make it 15 or 20 degrees away from your sagittal plane.

Combination: uppercut, hook, cross: you can practice stationary, moving back from your partner when your partner moves forward or moving forward when he or she moving backwards. When you are moving back you need to move your rear leg first, and before the impact you need to keep your ball of the foot on the floor.

If you move forward you step with your leading leg and follow with your second, same rule applies, anchor the ball of the foot to the floor,
