Muay Thai Sparring Analysis
There is no faster way to learn than through breaking down your own technique.
Your opponents will be using your fight footage to break you down so they can mess you up. Why not fix your weaknesses and amplify your strengths to leave them with nothing but air? Analyzing yourself is no different from analyzing any fight. You begin with the hard shots that landed and retrace how they landed in the first place.
What mistakes did you make?
What mistakes did your opponent make?
How did your opponent create openings?
Did your opponent force openings or did you simply make a careless mistake?
“Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From quiet reflection will come even more effective action.” Sparring is your action. Breaking down your sparring is the quiet reflection. From this quiet reflection, you will spot your strengths and your weaknesses. You will find ways to further capitalize on your strengths and ways to hide your weaknesses.
Still don’t know where to start? Then let’s learn from the experts.
In this video, Sean Fagan is sparring with his longtime training partner and Glory fighter Chris Mauceri.
When you’re sparring with someone who you’ve sparred with for years, many of your weaknesses can be further revealed and many of your strengths can be nullified.

Won’t this mean you have years of getting around the methods that your opponents will use to get around your strength?
