Naked Muay Thai 11: Clinch Engagement and Movement!

Full-Video: https://vimeo.com/177675879/
Teacher: Cat Noble
Student: Gigi Jimiiji
(Level: Beginner)
This video will demonstrate a very unique aspect of Muay Thai, how to fight in the clinch. Many people consider Muay Thai a form of kickboxing, but the clinch, which involves grappling to control the opponent’s head and scoring points with knees, elbows and sweeps, is not part of the majority of kickboxing competitions. To prepare for our clinch work, we warm up with knees and arm movements. And then move on to proper technique for controlling the head and review the two different types of knees practitioners may use to score points in the clinch. For these drills, it is very helpful to have a training partner and proper equipment is recommended at all times.
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. -NYV0082C

Once practitioners are comfortable with the basic techniques of Muay Thai, we delve more into the mental aspect and learn how the fight becomes an intelligent strategy game. We introduce three different drills that build upon each other to condition the opponent’s mind not to expect a leg kick. For these drills, it is very helpful to have a training partner and proper equipment (gloves and shin guards) is recommended at all times.

Naked Yoga for Standing Workers!

Teacher: Cat Noble
Student: Collibrina
(Level: Beginner-Intermediate)
The human body takes a lot of strain from standing jobs such as retail, food service and preparation, and health care. The hard surfaces upon which we stand and walk certainly don’t help the situation. This video will demonstrate a sequence of yoga poses to loosen a tight lower back and hamstrings, bring mobility and strength to the ankles and feet, as well as build strength in the legs to prevent damage to the lower joints. It is recommended to practice this sequence every day in the morning upon waking and at night before sleeping. If this is not possible, then at least three times per week, once a day. Practitioners should always listen to the “yes” and “no” signals of their own bodies, focusing on the internal feeling of where the pose is working, not the external shape of how it looks.
