Started Muay Thai today. Wow! I didn't realize how out of shape I really was.
It all came back quickly. I haven't lost as much technique as I thought I would have. I have some flexibility issues, but that will be taken care of before long. The boxing technique was second nature as I boxed for a while, so we moved into Muay Thai pretty quick. The foot work is a lot more different than I figured it would be as compared to boxing. A lot more square than the bladed boxing stance. So that will take the most getting used to for me. We didn't get to elbows. We mainly did punching combos and then added kicks into the combos and lastly knees were thrown into the combo. VERY good stuff. I will work on this at home now since I have all of the gear. I want to progress as quickly as possible.
