How to Properly Execute Sets of Thai Style Speed and Repeat Kicks
We once again turn to effective drills, technical instruction and focus. I really appreciate those who reached out and asked questions after viewing the past tutorials. In a number of the drills I have displayed in the past, I include the double kick, and even if I don’t. . . I probably should.
You often see the Thais doing repeat kicks at the beginning and end of each round, it is a complete drill to say the least.
Purpose: If your initial kick is thrown with proper technique and center of balance, the ability to throw the second kick (or 10 more) will be smooth and rather effortless.
Throwing repeat kicks is not only one of the best ways to increase kicking endurance, but it also serves as a supervisory check of balance and technique. In this video, we go over the common mistakes made and a number of cues that will help you keep a steady rhythm & balance:
Drill, drill, drill, implement, then drill some more.
Add purposeful drills to your routine. Advance all 8 weapons. Create stronger fundamentals. Gain power, control, and endurance in the clinch. Progress in your offense and defense simultaneously. Create a relationship with the heavy bag as your fully functional, responsive training partner to replace the limiting excuse of not having another body to work with.

The way we pattern our brain and body to work in training is the way that it will respond in sparring and in the fight. I personally use a set number of these drills as a warm up with a partner or on the pads backstage before walking out to perform my favorite form of savagery.
It gets my body and mind in-sync, with the right engagement and balance everything flows. With good defense, the offense just automatically flows out of my body and all becomes seamless. Expect for it to do the same for you, it’s time to get to work.
