In this short video we will see how a Muay Thai fighter trains his kicks with a palm tree. He does a quick leg swing and returns quickly to his defensive position after hitting the tree. Although the video’s title is “primitive training”, many yet doubt that this was once a possible way to properly train a fighter. Normally, fighters tend to practice and train with another person; training alone is not recommended for this martial art, there won’t be a proper defensive strategy. If what you are training are hits, then possibly, alone training might come in handy but eventually a fighter will have to practice with a real person who will block his moves or give a fast comeback. Even though this video might not show the proper “primitive training”, Muay Thai fighters, received, it still shows the strength and stamina the fighter has. Many times, martial art fighters, hit hard materials so as to make their bones harder; if you did not know, when a bone has received damage, the body repairs it, but the difference is that when it get repaired, the bone gets harder and stronger.

Muay Thai Bag workout technique

During this 3 minute video, you’ll be learning how to properly train with a long sandbag. The most important thing when practicing with a sandbag is to know exactly what distance to strike it from. There are 3 ranges, kicking range, punching range and a knee & elbow range. With that in mind, you should take the proper distance when practicing one type of hit or another. Another important thing to have in mind is not to stop the bag after a hit, you should actually be moving around the bag just like you would against an opponent. You may also block the bag from coming at you, just like you would block a real opponent, but remember to have a quick comeback, because you don’t want to give your opponent time to hit you or get a hold of you.

Try to keep in mind that training videos help a lot if you are having trouble with a certain move or hit. As it’s shown in this video, speed up your combination of hits as you get more comfortablewith the sandbag, do not try to go faster than you actually can, start slow and increase speed as you get better.
