This video will demonstrate how to throw a straight Muay Thai knee strike, with emphasis on proper hip rotation technique and foot placement. We will also go over the teep (push kick) as an extension of the same movement, discussing why and how to implement each technique in a Muay Thai fight. Practitioners are encouraged to train in an open space with plenty of room to move, and may use either a partner or a mirror for feedback on technique.
Martial arts can be practiced for any reason from combat to meditation and they result in a sense of discipline, confidence and responsibility as well as a deeper understanding of human nature and the Self. Muay Thai (also called the Art of Eight Limbs or Thai boxing) is a stand-up striking art. Since the introduction of equipment and boxing rings, Muay Thai has become a competitive combat sport and is popular with MMA (mixed martial arts) fighters as a striking strategy.
