Muay Thai Moves: Punch and Knee Kick Combination

Welcome to our MuayThaiSport’s blog! Right here you will find interesting articles that are all related to Muay Thai Boxen Hosen and other fighting sports like boxing or MMA and also Muay Thai gear like Short Muay Thai, Muay Thai Gloves. But today’s article is one of our usual, the muay thai moves article. I have read many books about Muay Thai and some of them are things that I always want to share with you like Muay Thai Boxe Boran’s techniques that you’re going to read about in this article for example. Feel free to leave us suggestion down below on what you would want to see in our blog.

The Thai name for this move is “Luang Dan Hera”. It is one of the combination moves that require you to use a punch and a kick at the same time. However, last time it was a punch and a kick combination, “Pajon Chang San”. The difference is that today’s move will use your knee as a weapon to deliver the kick instead of your leg.

Like the Pajon Chang San or the punch and kick combination, the move is used for either attack, defense or escape. It will be best used while there are a small distance between you and your opponent. You will have to throw a right swing fist to your fighter’s left jaw and at the mean time swing your left knee upward and diagonally to hit your opponent’s right ribcage. It is best used when you notice that your fighter leaves his guard down leaving himself vulnerable for the move.

To the Attack: The opponent must shield himself from the fighter’s blows by wiping away the potential punch with his left arm. And he should also move quickly, sway towards the right side while raising his elbow to guard the ribs from the knee kick.

To the Defense: Twist your body slightly to your right and put your body weight onto your right leg while using your left knee to strike the opponent’s right rib. The counter-attack is very similar to the one in Pajon Chang San or the punch and kick combination move but instead of using your shin or foot in the kick, you use your knee as the weapon.

Thanks for being with us until the end. Next month we will definitely talk about more thai boxing moves. Just a thought: what is your favorite Muay Thai move and why? See you next time!


Muay Thai Moves: The Uppercut

Welcome back! This is time to learn some new moves! How are you with the previous Muay Thai move I talked about last month? I hope you can still remember it. Today I want to talk about another ancient Thai boxing technique. But it’s not that ancient since we still use this technique in modern Muay Thai. Let’s check it out!

The action is best used when there are only a small space between you and your opponent. The punch is perfectly used in close range. And as you deliver an uppercut, don’t forget to transfer the power right from your leg because the force will be driven through the lifting of your legs through your body and then fists. Make the uppercut move from the inside because it is easy to counter attack the move if you use the outside uppercut because you will be left widely open while you’re bringing the arms down to gain the power for the punch. To do this Muay Thai move, you have to step toward your opponent to the certain range that is close enough to easily bring the punch upward to strike the opponent’s heart, chest, and abdomen or rib area.

To the Attack: Thwart the boxer’s right arm with your left arm and suddenly twist your upper body to the right to prevent the full blow to your chest or abdomen area. Don’t forget to guard the left side of your ribcage with your left elbow holding up on guard.

To the Defense: Use your left knee to hit the boxer’s ribs or midsection. If the opponent uses his left hand instead of the right to throw the uppercut, you alternate it by using your right knee to perform this counter attack to the move.

This Muay Thai Boran move is used for facing the coming attack, dealing with the defense and escape of your opponent. It is very accommodating when there is a certain good amount of distance between you and your fighter. Furthermore, this muay thai punch move targets the opponent’s neck and is so used when the neck area is left opened vulnerable. To perform this move, the boxer has to hold up his right fist in front of him. Then soon after, straighten or extend forcefully his right arm making a step forward toward the opponent with his right foot. Now it is the time to deliver the long range downward blow from your right fist onto your fighter’s neck or maybe nose.

To deal with the attack: Move very quickly to thwart the long punch away by moving your straight left arm above your head like when you’re guarding your face and immediately swing your left arm outward to brush the opponent’s right long blow away.

To handle the defense: With powerful force, throw a left swing kick aiming for the boxer’s right rib. If the ancient long punch is being thrown by the left arm (your right side), then instead, swing your right leg to deliver the powerful kick from your right hitting his left ribcage.
