Boxing Sparring Drill For Inside Fighting
We all know how important it is as a Muay Thai fighter to have a strong outside game with long range kicks, teeps and knees…
…but what about fighting, or more specifically, boxing on the inside?
In Muay Thai there are a variety of different ranges you’ll find yourself in when face to face with your opponent. One of the most uncomfortable range (for some) is on the inside where you’re outside of clinching range, but close enough to utilize strong boxing combos.
And I don’t know about you, but I LOVE throwing hard hands in the pocket and exchanging with my opponents (or at least when I get the better end of it).
One of my favorite boxing drills to do to improve my inside fight game one the you might see circling around on social media with fighters standing with one foot in a tire and then bangin’ it out until the end of the round… and that’s exactly what I’m about to show you.
Inside Boxing Drill for Muay Thai
I’m a HUGE believer in having a strong boxing foundation as a Muay Thai fighter. With my initial start being in a boxing gym, I was able to utilize my fast, heavy hands in order to finish a number of my opponents with devastating boxing combos.
That being said, in order to land my hands, I needed to set them up with my other 6 limbs (kicks, knees and elbows) which I have been getting better at throughout my career.
On the other side of the coin, my friend and training partner Paul “The Reaper” Banasiak from Muay Thai Athlete (and Golden Gloves finalist) uses his hand combinations to set up his powerful knees to the body or kicks to the head.
Regardless of how you use your hands, it’s important to know how to use them specifically for boxing…
… and that’s why Paul and I have created a comprehensive course on this aspect of the fight game called:
