Catch and Turn


In today’s Muay Thai Minute, Coach Damon takes us through a muay thai technique for catching a kicks.  This technique is a classic Muay Boran technique that can be adapted to the ring.  This works well for an opponent who is looking to “Crack your shell”  and is aiming specifically to kick your arms.

When your doing this techniques, clearly it’s important to keep your guard up…  with your opposite hand you need to reach over and hold their foot/shin on your arm.  Once you have their leg/ankle, pull it against your arm and turn into it.  Your partner will really feel quite a lot of pressure on his or her ankle.  Don’t crank too hard…

Happy drilling.

I started My Muay Thai back in 2006... I was tired of reading about MMA, and wanted somewhere I could watch real muay thai fights, be inspired and connect with others who love muay thai as much as I do... I currently live in London... when I'm not geeking out over muay thai you can find me bombing around London on my scrambler, ferreting out the latest street food gems.
