Should I Stay Stationary or Move When Hitting Pads?
When it comes to your Muay Thai training, one of the most effective (and most fun) ways to train is by blasting the thai pads with punches, kicks, knees and elbows. There are a number of things to consider when holding/hitting Thai pads that are often overlooked, such as footwork and movement.
In this Muay Thai Monday Q&A, fans Bodey and Abi ask about whether they should stay stationary or move forward while throwing certain techniques and combos on the pads. I answer it with help from my beautiful girlfriend Liz 🙂
If you want more tips and techniques for holding Thai pads, make sure to watch this tutorial on some of the basics from coach Chris Clodfelter of Eight Points Muay Thai:
