A Good Fight Stance for Kickboxing, Muay Thai and MMA

Striking Coach Vince Salvador breaks down some basic fundamentals of having a solid fight stance. These tips are applicable to Kickboxing, Muay Thai and MMA.


Coach Vince Salvador:

Hi, I’m Vince Salvador from The Arena. Today we’re going to go over a tip on kickboxing stance. What you don’t want to do is get your head over your knee at any time, either it’s in the front, on the side or in the back. Mainly because if I’m here and his head comes over his knee, it’s easier to pull him down. So this is applicable for MMA and for Muay Thai or Kickboxing. So when he has his head forward, he has no structure in his back. It makes it easier for me to throw knees, elbows, snapping down for take downs. So structure’s one of the most important things, plus the way your feet are dictate how you can move, right? That’s the tip of the day.
