Pushing to High Kick.

Here's a gif of LamSongKram off balancing his opponent, then high kicking him out of the ring. 

The video footage and GIF is grainy but this is why pushing is beneficial. 

  • Creates space.
  • An off balance opponent has limited ring awareness.
  • While your opponent is off balance, your attack can knock them down (or out of the ring in this case).

The Reality of "Living the Dream." Effortless.

Ike's Boxing Gym in Paterson NJ was filled with alot of young talent. Some of the kids would talk about their goals and I felt like they were a little delusional, but I would never shoot down anyone's dream. No matter how quacked out they sounded.

Ball kicks & Teeps. An Underutilized Tool.

In MMA, teeps and front kicks are completely underestimated. Are there any benefits to foot jabbing and can you really cause damage by teeping in an MMA fight? Also, which targets to aim for that'll cause maximum damage.

Positioning of a Brawl. Sangmanee vs Tanonchai

Why is there no use of angles in Muay Thai or Kickboxing? 
Those are some of the most common questions I see on the sub forums in popular MMA message boards. The casual fan might think Muay Thai fighting or kickboxing are like a dick measuring contest, where fighters stand in place and trade shot for shot to see who will go down first. Muay thai isn't all about walking forward to your opponent and swinging for the fences.Well it sort of is but it's a little more complex than that sounds.

VIDEO: 1 Minute Motivation. Fight or Flight.

I was watching a bunch of fight videos on Youtube the other night. I came across Thepnimit's recent Raja fight from last month (April 9 2014). I saw it in person and man was it nuts! By far the best display of heart and power I've ever seen live. I decided to make a short motivational video out of it and if I get a good response from people, I will make it into a series.
