Though strange to Western ears, the Thai language is not as difficult as you may think. Learning a few basic words will make your stay in Thailand more rewarding. Comprising 44 consonants and 32 vowels and diphthongs, Thai, or Pasa Thai, is the national language of Thailand. Dialects vary in the north, northeast, and south. Based on contemporary Mon and Khmer, the script in Thailand was developed around eight centuries ago. The language in Thailand has five tones: mid, low, falling, rising, and high. This often intimidates foreigners, but with the practice basic words and phrases are relatively easy to master. Learning some Thai can enhance your stay in Thailand, and even if your first attempts evoke a few giggles, most people will appreciate your effort. Transliterations from Thai script to roman are sometimes confusing. With no clear rules, one Thai word may have several roman spellings. For example, if you want to take a pleasant stroll in Bangkok, Thailand you can go to Lumphini Park. However, signs along the way might also point to Lumpini or Lumpeenee Park, yet they are one and the same. Harder still, ph is pronounced as p; not f, and th read as t. Also, some letters change their sound according to their position: the Thai character Lor Ling corresponds to l if placed at the beginning of a word, and n if it comes at the end. For this reason, many Thailand language guides give different transliterations.

You will also train on the different Krav Maga weapon attack defenses and disarms, and on how you will defend yourself from baseball stick club attacks, self-defense for knife hold ups, and knife threats.
The course also includes Krav Maga gun disarms technique for disarming and removing weapons from a pistol and long gun threats. Krav Maga ground fighting survival and how to defend yourself when on the ground and get back to standing position are also added to the course curriculum.
Kombat Group Thailand's Krav Maga course also deals with the modern defensive tactics from Krav Maga and other premier self-defense methods; how to deal with pre-fight situations, how to avoid and escape street attacks, and how to talk an attacker out of attacking.
Krav Maga Thailand also incorporates tactics and technique from other world class self-defense systems, hand to hand combat, and military combative modern. It is combative as inspired by the original WWII Combative of W.E. Fairbairn. Lastly, Kombat Group Thailand also has Krav Maga fight training sparring sessions incorporating kickboxing sparring and training.
Krav Maga is an easy to learn self-defense technique. It is one of the world's modern self-defense systems which allow ordinary everyday people to learn simple easy to learn, easy to use self-defense techniques, which are extremely effective in neutralizing street attackers. You will learn world class modern defensive tactics where you will with minimal training be fully equipped to deal with both unarmed and armed attackers.
Krav Maga was originally developed as a military combative hand to hand combat system for the Israeli Defense Force I.D.F. who needed a fast to learn, simple, and effective fighting system for I.D.F. Special Force Commando Units. Today, the I.D.F. trains his troops in Krav Maga which had been battle tested to the max.
In recent years, due to the effectiveness of Krav Maga as a front line fighting system many of the world's leading militaries, police, and L.E.O. S.W.A.T. teams such as the F.B.I., U.S. Army, L.A.P.D., and a host of European nations' militaries and police forces have added Krav Maga into the training programs for their personnel mainly due to the short time it takes to learn Krav Maga self-defense basics and the lethal nature of Krav Maga techniques. %Thousands and thousands of ordinary people all over the world have taken up Krav Maga to give them proven self-defense and defense tactics skills safe in the knowledge that they can protect themselves and their loved ones from violent street attacks, robbers, muggers, and fight off assaults from violent thugs.
Krav Maga also is an excellent martial art for recreation. Krav Maga is fun to learn as it is informal without dojo rituals, and Krav Maga also helps keep you in shape and get fit. Krav Maga is for everyone regardless of your experience or skill level. -MMA fighter training and seminars with the best instructors %Kombat Group Thailand, therefore, provides the MMA fighter a unique opportunity to train in all the areas of his sport, by the best instructors in each particular area; either Muay Thai striking techniques from Thai champions or wrestling techniques from an instructor with over 20 years' experience. Nowhere else is this training offered under one roof or with the flexibility adapting the training to an individual's needs.
In collaboration with the West Coast Jujitsu, Kombat Group Thailand periodically organizes and promotes seminars with Brian Espinoza, leader of the WCJ, and a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Learn MMA submission holds, guard position, mount position, locks, sweeps, takedowns, throws, escapes, and reverses that are the staple of good Jiu-Jitsu in this MMA training program.
In Muay Thai, when you strike with the elbow, you ideally want to hit with the sharp pointy bone. If you were to hold your arm in front of you as if you were throwing a hook punch, the part of the elbow that you want to strike with is the sharp pointy bone on the bottom. Make sure in Muay Thai that you are striking with this part of the elbow rather than flush or with the top part of the bone; you should hold your open palm towards the target.
In Thai Boxing, it is very important that you keep your guard high and tight when executing elbows. If you throw an elbow, rest assured in Muay Thai you will be given one in turn. Keep your Muay Thai guard high so that your wrists are at eyebrow level. In Thai boxing, do not reach for the elbow strike. With very few exceptions, the elbows should be thrown at clinching range. -Thai boxing pads techniques
Grasp the Muay Thai pads so that your palm is towards your opponent, not towards your face. When you are the Muay Thai pad holder, stand in your normal stance, facing your opponent. The Thai boxing pads are designed so that the Muay Thai boxer can train realistically against a human opponent. -Muay Thai kicking drills
For one, you can have the Muay Thai kicker alternate kicks for an entire round. Left-right-left-right. The Muay Thai kicker needs to keep up a good solid pace. Do not rest in between unless necessary! Don't be lazy! Most of the time, when holding the pads for Muay Thai roundhouse kicks, you hold them at mid body level. Even if you use Thai boxing style kicks mainly to attack the legs, you will benefit from practicing them higher, as it requires you to work harder. -Muay Thai knee drills
Have the Muay Thai boxer practice free standing straight knees, or clinch knees. A student doing Thai boxing should do a skipping footwork to alternate knees. For instance, if I just knee with my right, as my right foot drops to the floor, the left skips backward to load up the left knee. Again, you can also drill multiple knees on the same side. Instead of dropping the knee to the front, bring it all the way back, continually loading for the next knee. -Thai boxing push kicking drills
Muay Thai pads are not conducive to push kicking drills. Either allow the Thai boxing student to push kick you or invest in a belly protector. If you invest in a belly protector, stick to the above brands and try to find Velcro straps. The Muay Thai pad holder has a great deal of responsibility to the Thai boxing student, as the Muay Thai pad holder dictates the pace of the workout. You should push the Muay Thai student. -Thai boxing combination drills
Keeping in mind all of the above advice for the Muay Thai pad holder. Let's move on to combination drills. When directing Thai boxing combination drills, the Muay Thai pad holder should vary between having the attacker execute the techniques or combos for power, or for speed. Do not change in the middle of the round. -The low roundhouse kick of Muay Thai kick
Muay Thai camps will go into variations after basic have been established. Remember, with the low roundhouse kick of Muay Thai, the target area ranges from a Thai boxer's ankle up to his upper thigh. You will try to break this up into a few steps, but remember, when this Muay Thai kick is actually executed, all the steps flow together into one motion. -Step and lean kick
Step sideways at a 45-degree angle to the intended Muay Thai opponent. As you step, your stepping foot should start to rotate. As you step, you should lean your body in the direction that you step. This helps get your body momentum going, which is a key ingredient to this Muay Thai kick. -Rotate and lean kick
Your entire body most rotates on the ball of your foot. Your leg should be straight (or very close to straight) during the entire Muay Thai kick. As you rotate and kick, as in all Muay Thai, your body should stay leaned away from the kicking leg. This acts as a counterbalance of sorts and gets the weight of your upper body behind this strong and powerful Muay Thai kick.
When the leg strikes your intended Muay Thai target, it should strike with the lower portion of the shinbone and/or the very upper part of the instep. The momentum of this Muay Thai kick should follow through the target. This Muay Thai kick does not stop at impact!
Following through on this kick and all Muay Thai is probably the most important facet of Muay Thai. Think of your leg as a baseball bat, swing it all the way through you opposing Muay Thai opponent, attempting to break through everything in your path.
Do not attempt any Muay Thai kick if you are standing too far away from your Thai boxing opponent. This forces you to step into your opposing Muay Thai athlete when covering the distance, and gets your body's momentum traveling in the wrong direction.
When you lean away and perform this Muay Thai kick, lean far enough away so that your head is out of reach of your Muay Thai opponents punches. Especially during all Muay Thai low kicks, as you have to stand closer to your opponent while executing them.
Swing your leg in a "dead legged" style using your hip, very similar to kicking a soccer ball or football. In Muay Thai, you should never snap your leg, like in karate. Follow all the way through your intended Muay Thai target. If you were to miss, the kick would literally spin you around! When this Muay Thai kick impacts with your Muay Thai target, the heel of your support foot should be pointing at your target.
Remember, for those who have studied kicking styles other Muay Thai, the impact area is now the lower shinbone. That means you have to adjust your kicking range to reflect the Muay Thai style. This a small but a very important adjustment. In Muay Thai, the support leg bends when kicking low, the lower your kick, the lower you bend your support leg. -Muay Thai, dropping lead hand when kicking
Muay Thai boxers do typically drop one of their hands when executing a Muay Thai roundhouse kick. The reason, as you may have guessed, is for both leverage and added power. Though you were referring only to the lead side Muay Thai roundhouse kick, and the dropping of the lead hand, the same is true for the rear legged Muay Thai roundhouse kick.
For one, Muay Thai roundhouse kicks from the lead leg are naturally weaker because they do not benefit anywhere near as much from the body's powerful rotation during the Muay Thai kick. -Muay Thai clinch fighting in combat sports
Clinch fighting is the primary focus of many combat sports such as Muay Thai and it is also a fundamental part of mixed martial arts. The nature of the clinch fighting in each sport depends on the rules involved.
Muay Thai puts much emphasis on strikes from the clinch while avoiding takedowns. Similarly, to all is that they allow the grappling necessary to form a clinch. Others combat sports like western boxing or kickboxing only allow clinching for a short time or do not allow it at all. -Conditioning the shins for Muay Thai
When doing Muay Thai kicking, the heavy bag and Thai pads will begin the preparation, you should kick over 100 times each or around that figure. Before your Muay Thai training every so often and massage the shins or while in Thailand seek out the popular Thai Massage, the vigorous massaging will keep the blood flowing into them. This promotes faster healing of the bruised flesh and any damage to the bone suffered during this Muay Thai training.
