Muay Thai Street Fight With Brutal Leg Kicks

Muay Thai Street Fight With Brutal Leg Kicks

I love watching kick boxing movies such as Blood Sport (1988), Kickboxer (1989) and pretty much anything with Jean-Claude Van Damme in it. The training to become a Muay Thai fighter is extremely rigorous, but definitely worth while.

This national sport of Thailand is one of my all time favorites to watch on cable. I’ve learned some great techniques from the world of Thai boxing. The Muay Thai training will help you develop incredible stamina, which can help you possibly take on more than one attacker. This art focuses on developing a fighting spirit, that never gives in. The mindset of, no retreat, no surrender!

If you want to see some devastating head butts, that can knock a person out, then you need to check out Thai boxing. I’ve seen the Thai boxing methods applied in mixed martial arts fights on TV effectively. I’m talking about deadly Thai kicks and monstrous elbow strikes.

I have to say one my favorite moves is using the knees, which you can use to weaken and wear down your opponent. If you’ve got your opponent up against a wall or cage and you start kneeing your opponent to the ribs, it will make him vulnerable. Another dirty trick that I see used in mixed martial arts fights is, when the fighter has got his opponent bent over, he will need him to the face.

Another favorite move that can literally knock out a fighter is, a flying knee attack to the head. Just recently, I was watching UFC and I watched as one fighter perfectly timed a flying knee to his opponents face and knocked him out as cold as a cucumber. Now that’s what I call strategy my martial arts friends!

I think this martial art should be added to your street fighting arsenal of dirty tricks, because I just love using my elbows and my knees. Both applications are very effective in close quarter fighting, which is vital for any street fighter. For example, if you are attacked in an elevator, the knees and elbows are ready for action. Elevator attacks are some of the worst, because you have a limited amount of space to move your body around in. This is where using your elbows and your knees repetitively on an attacker is perfect.

If you get a chance check out the Muay Thai videos over on YouTube. There are some excellent training videos of Muay Thai online. When you watch a Thai boxer, you will see just how powerful the knees strikes are. You will notice a quick combination of the knees strikes and then the elbow strikes over and over again, this type of attacking will knock your opponent senseless and leave him confused.
