This video will demonstrate the practice of technical sparring, which is a way to safely practice fighting. Practitioners will learn how to turn the strikes they have practiced into combinations and try them out for efficacy on a partner. If you are training at home, please always be sure to wear proper equipment: gloves, shin guards and mouth guard. 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. -NYV0077D
