Loving Muay Thai
Hi, there! I have just started taking MT classes and I got hooked on the first class. :thumb02: I had four classes already and I have learned doing the jab, 1-2 punches, hooks, knees, blocks and recently the uppercut. I just have to say that its so much fun! Every time I go into the stance I get pumped up and I feel like throwing punches until I tire out. :)

I'm doing research now on how to better my form and get the most out of my torque and I review everything I learned in class at home.

Although I am confused on whats the real MT stance. :confused02:

Our instructor told us to always be on tip-toe and have our arms tight on our body, hide our chin and hold out our forehead, but I'm seeing MT stances that are contrary to what I've been taught. :confused02:

Left foot forward and pointing forward, right leg back angled to the right and on the tip (whatever is compfy and let's you pivot smoothly, not flat footed) this will let you pivot your hips and that helps you hit harder and gives you a bit more reach. Elbows in to protect your ribs, how much higher are your ears than your hands (think thumbs) when youre in stance? Shouldn't be much, and keep your chin down and protected by your shoulders. This is in my opinion the best stance, I've seen the high stance with flat back foot (that guy from that van dam movie) and weight on back foot and front foot on the tip (shogun when he fought machida). I don't like either but hey I'm just a random jackass on the internet, play around, ask around see what feels comfortable and works for you.

A lot of times a person says X is the best technique w.e, they're aren't always right, including me, so keep an open mind and punch something :)
