Ladies Only Muay Thai

The ladies only Muay Thai sessions are varied between techniques, partner drills and pads.   The classes themselves are fun and challenging,  with a friendly group of ladies these are more than just a great way to active, challenge yourself, learn something new, have an hour off of life but also an environment where you can TRY,  the more comfortable you are at trying more confident you will develop as the weeks go on.

Most of the women started off with little to no experience,  with no real passion for exercise - now pretty much all of them are regular gym goers on top of training with Lions Watford and have changed their lifestyle so much that even their eating habits have improved.

Decent Basics

Techniques and body positioning that everything else stems from. Without these basics, then quality and effective techniques can be built on top of them. At any level, good basics are what separates the bad from the good, and the good from the great.

Footwork is the primary focus.  The aim is for neat footwork to become natural.

Hand positioning should be second nature, whether it be in throwing an attacking strike or defending an incoming attack.

Head positioning should be as safe as possible during sparring. The chin should be tucked and eyes should be looking at the target. Any turning away from punches should be eradicated before a competition is a viable option. Unnecessarily moving the head into the line of fire should be minimal against students of a similar experience.

Balance is a quality which underpins every movement the student makes. Remaining balanced during footwork, striking and clinching is the backbone of a fighter. Shadow work is the best place to train and assess unforced balance issues.

Strike recovery is often overlooked by beginners as they don’t realise the importance of being able to pull the striking limb back to where it started from quickly while remaining balanced throughout. Failure to get this right will result in the student getting countered… a lot.

Spontaneous and untaught reactions such as flinching during sparring is not acceptable at this stage and can leave the fighter extremely vulnerable. These reactions should be trained out with defence drills and different sparring drills.
