THE TECHNIQUES OF MUAY THAI or THAI BOXING
Muay Thai as a martial arts discipline makes use of the body parts for weapons. The parts of the body which are head, elbow, feet, fists, shin and knee compromise the Na-wa arwud. However in these days Muay Thai fights no longer permit the fighter to use the head. In attacking and defending, the fighter employs a little quantity of grappling or that which is known as the clinch.
The Techniques of Muay Thai are divided into two categories the Luk Mai or that which is known as the minor techniques and the Mae Mai or the major techniques. The very reason why Muay Thai is held to be distinct from the other variants of Martial Arts is because it utilizes the whole body movement while the hip can either be rotated fully or partially for every block ,kick and punch executed.
THE PUNCHING TECHNIQUES include the straight punch, hook punch, uppercut, jab and sometimes spinning back fist.. Judges add less to the scores of the Muay Thai fighters who often use the punches as they are less powerful.
THE ELBOW TECHNIQUES are the uppercut elbow, horizontal elbow, forward elbow thrust. Spinning elbow, reverse horizontal elbow, elbow chop, mid air elbow strike, and the double elbow chop.
THE KICKING TECHNIQUES are the straight kick ( Tip), roundhouse kick, diagonal kick, half knee kick, jump kick, and step up kick. The most commonly used though are the roundhouse kick and the foot jab (Tip).
THE KNEE TECHNIQUES include the straight knee strike, diagonal knee strike, horizontal knee strike, knee slap, flying knee strike, small knee strike, and the knee bomb.
MEANWHILE THE FOOT TECHNIQUES are the sideways foot thrust, straight foot thrust, reverse foot thrust, and the jumping foot thrust.
