How To Catch and Counter The Teep

3 Counters To The Muay Thai Teep

The Muay Thai teep is one of the most crucial weapons in the arsenal of any fighter. Besides the fact that it is used to gauge distance, set up combos and drive back your opponent, it can also be used to cause some serious damage to both the body and face.

With that being said, it’s important to know how to counter the Muay Thai teep if you want to avoid getting kicked in the sternum repeatedly by a front kick. There’s nothing worse than trying to start a combo when you get the wind knocked out of you by a solid teep to the stomach.

Regardless of HOW you use the teep, learning the correct technique and drilling it over and over again will make you a more well-rounded (and dangerous) Nak Muay.
