Technique of the Month Muay Thai Jab

It is with great pleasure to present you with the first technique breakdown in our “Technique of the Month” series.

I will share as much of my martial arts knowledge as I can without straying off topic, as I can go on and on for days about this subject.

This will give some insight into the technical aspect of martial arts to the uninformed, beginner or advanced martial artist.
I am sure that the advanced martial artist will appreciate the technical breakdown of the techniques.

So, let’s begin, shall we.

The first technique we will cover will be the Muay Thai Jab.

There are several types of jabs in boxing, Muay Thai and other forms of martial arts.

For example, in boxing, these can include the “basic jab”, the “step jab”, the “power jab”, the “counter jab” the “up jab” along with several others. These jabs can be used for offense and defense.

In Muay Thai, we focus on a long range jab. This is the technique we will cover today.

Now, the Muay Thai jab, in itself, is a very simple, but effective weapon. The motion itself is literally straightforward. Take a look at the video clip of me demonstrating the jab.

The fist travels in a linear fashion from my temple to a fully extended position and return It to the start position. There are some other subtleties, but that is it really.

The difference between the basic jab and the Muay Thai jab is the slight extension at the shoulder. This extension allows the jab to travel farther than the normal length of my arm.

The Muay Thai jab can be quite deceptive and I often catch people off guard in sparring and it has helped in some of my fights.

In a Pro boxing match, you will often hear the commentator mention that the boxer with the better jab will end up winning the fight. And it is usually true. But, let’s get back on topic

Another reason this jab is utilized by Muay Thai practitioners is that keeps heavy punchers at bay, so to speak.

Let’s say I am fighting a person that throws big punches in “bunches”. I can utilize one or two quick jabs to create distance or snap their head back and throw off their rhythm.

The Muay Thai jab also allows you to keep enough distance between you and your opponent to throw those heavy kicks that are so effective in Muay Thai.

In Muay Thai fights, big kicks mean big points on the scorecards. Plus, no one likes getting kicked. Lol.

That is all I have for now on the Muay Thai Jab. If you are interested in learning more about my programs, please check out my Website.

A story about Jim

dc7a9e57-a373-4675-b8a7-a62cd96fac9d1

 

 

Today, I will tell fictional story about a young man.  Let’s say his name is Jim.
Jim just came from a visit with his doctor.
Good old doc told him that if he does not make some lifestyle changes, he is in danger of some serious health issues.
So Jim decides that today’s the day. He will listen to the doctor’s advice.  He will eat healthy and go to the gym.
Jim heads to the nearest grocery store. But he has never done “healthy shopping” before.
Shopping for Jim usually consists of food be can heat up quickly in the microwave and some diet soda.
He tries looking for healthy food options, but he is perplexed.
He says to himself…”Should i eat Kale? I heard that’s healthy right? But I’m no vegetarian.” So he moves on.
Maybe an all meat diet. Yea, Atkins right?  But, wait, didn’t that guy die of have a heart? No way, that’s out.
So Jim browses the cereal aisle. But he is overwhelmed with slogans and sugary cereals.
By now Jim is fed up…and hungry. He gives up his quest for healthy eating and heads to McDonald’s for a nice easy drive-through dinner.
Does Jim’s story sound familiar? Have you ever walked into the supermarket and felt overwhelmed?
Sadly, it is the story I hear all the time from too many people.
The good news is that Life is Hard . Fighting is Easy. will be rolling out a brand new Nutrition program.
Yes, it will be a nutrition plan only.  There are  no workouts required (although it always helps to meet your goal).

This program will help you if you have no clue about nutrition like poor Jimor if you are already in an exercise program and just need some guidance.
This is not just some expensive points program that sells you on their meal plan (i.e. Weightwatchers).
The program includes a customized nutrition plan to help you meet your specific goals.
The program will be rolled out before Thanksgiving, 2016, so be on the lookout.
So, let’s not be like Jim. Together, we can work together to fight for your health goals.
