The Arena’s Kru Mark (Boungnaphonh Makthepharaks) teaches us long and short range power kicks, a staple in Muay Thai fighting styles and Kickboxing, in this Tip of the Week video!


Hi my name is Boungnaphonh Makthepharaks. Today we’re gonna show you the kick. The power kicks. Yeah, long range power kick and short range power kick.

Long range is just, stretch more your legs out apart. Long. See how the shin goes back that way? And the short range is more straight in. Straight in like so.

The bag should swing straight. Same way, other … Southpaw. So, same. Make sure your body stays straight upright position and also the bag should swing straight, like I said. Same thing for the southpaw.

You can swing your arm or you can just put in front, yeah? Swing in front. There you go.
