Balance and Stability When Blocking

Muay Thai die-hards are taught to block oncoming kicks with our shin. But if you take a look at the rules from the popular governing bodies here in NJ, NY, or PA (WKA, ABC, USMTA, etc...) there is no specification for what a block against kicks should look like.

Building Stronger Muay Thai Kick Blocking

When it comes to Muay Thai, kicks must be blocked with your shin so that your opponent won't score. However, raising your knee against a kick isn't always enough if your opponent is kicking right through your shin or off balancing you. Here's how to strengthen your blocks so you don't look weak to the judges.

Ankle Openers for Muay Thai Teeps

One of the biggest problems I faced when I started Muay Thai was poor plantar flexion (pointing your foot out). I also see it in some of my newer students.

Back then, during a sparring class, I threw a teep and missed my partner. My coached yelled at me to point my foot. I fired again and missed. "He heard you yell it and stepped back," I thought to myself in frustration as the round continued.

Kettlebell Get Up Sit Up

Learning how to get up is going to be vital if you're looking for longevity in your fitness routine. Here's a quick How-To for The GetUp Sit Up, one of my favorite core/abdominal movements. This can be done with a kettlebell, dumbbell, medicine ball, a full grown dog or your baby brother.


This is the 1st and 2nd part of the Turkish Get Up (TGU) and a good regression to increase the weight you'd typically use in the TGU. 

This is a staple in our Kettlebell Strength & Conditioning Classes. Try it at home or be an action taker and join our kick starter program (http://www.acumenathletics.com/p/kettlebells-strength.html)
