Ways to improve kicks? I know I could have much better power and form. Also, sometimes my balance is off. (I'm still semi-new at this and have only been training 3 times a week for about 2.5months)

Sorry for the late response. Truthfully kicking takes a lot of practice and repetition. There are a few technique videos I’d recommend that my old kru demonstrates some simple drills to do to help with your hip thrust. You can check it out here:

Other than that, I wouldn’t worry too much because you are still in the beginning stages of your training. It took me a couple years to actual feel competent with my kicks and I still feel like I have a lot to work on. Just take it day at a time and focus on technique more than power, otherwise you might be trying to hard which could make you pick up bad habits.

Hope that helps, good luck!

Shins looking a little fucked after burning it with some hot water to help with the swelling. Hoping antibiotics and rest will heal me up for the 13th! #muaythaiproblems #ihatekicking

Today I spent my time off between training sessions to check out the Soi Dog foundation in northern Phuket. Like I said before, I normally only post Muay Thai stuff but this is an exception. Check it out!
