As we always say, Muay Thai is one of the most AWESOME, POWERFUL, and downright DEVASTATING martial arts on the planet.
That means that anyone and everyone who has even a slight passing interest in learning how to protect themselves, get in kick-butt knock-out shape, or even becoming a competitive fighter - needs to sit up and take notice right now.
It really doesn't matter if you are interested in self-defense, or you just want to get into some sort of MMA, kickboxing, or Muay Thai competition. You have someone, an ATTACKER, in all of these situations. And we're here to tell you that right now this is the PERFECT CHANCE for you to learn PROVEN and TIME-TESTED ways for dealing with that attacker.
The Complete Muay Thai Home Study Course is the creation of Kru Scott "Bam Bam" Sullivan, former heavyweight kickboxing and shootboxing champion, and owner and chief instructor at Bam Bam Martial Arts Mixed Martial Arts Center in Houston, TX.
The original Complete Muay Thai Home Study Course is a VERY POPULAR PROGRAM that is SELLING AN INCREDIBLE amount of copies to martial arts enthusiasts all over the world.
Students in the United States, Japan, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Ireland, Italy, France, Australia, Canada, and a host of other countries have already reaped its benefits and have attested to their great satisfaction with this course.
In every series of the Complete Muay Thai Home Study Course, we try to give you the best training information we can to help you improve your skills and grow in the art of Muay Thai, all while having the great convenience of being able to train in your own home!
This is the 4th addition now to The Complete Muay Thai Home Study Course and, as always, it contains A TON of new training information.
We like to do something different in every set we make. In this "Special Topics" series, we cover the art of COUNTERATTACKING:
You cannot score a blow on an opponent UNLESS YOU HAVE AN OPENING. No opening means no landing a blow for you. Period. When you initiate an attack, your opponent has his best chance of defending against your attack, because he is "ready" and not doing anything else. His focus is totally on you!
With counterattacking it's different. When you wait for an opponent to attack or do something, then he OPENS HIMSELF UP TO BE COUNTERED and HIS MIND IS FOCUSED ON OTHER THINGS. With counterattacking, you can hit him when he is in this "multi-tasking" mode, increasing your chance of success.
Also important in counterattacking is HOW TO DEAL WITH DIFFERENT FIGHTING STYLES. Some guys prefer to kick, other guys prefer to clinch, still other guys like to box. It all depends! And all of these preferences have the advantages, but, THEY ALSO HAVE THEIR DISADVANTAGES. Knowing how to fight different styles of fighter and deal with their particular strategies is really important for your success.
Having good boxing skills can be an awesome asset for fighting.In fact, a recent study showed that most MMA fights are won by punching.Make no mistake about it, if you want to maximize your fighting skills, you need to maximize your hand skills! The problem is that unless you train properly, it can be very difficult to apply your punching skills in a Thai boxing/kickboxing/MMA context.
The reason is RANGE. Muay Thai, Kickboxing, MMA and streetfighting all allow weapons and ranges that are illegal in standard boxing. The weapons used at kicking and clinching range (kicks, knees and elbows) can totally nullify your punching attacks.
Be forewarned - unless you know how to deal with this problem, your ability to use your punches in these contexts will be greatly comprimised.
These videos will give you drills and techniques you need to SMASH AND DESTROY your opponent's kicking and clinching counters and maximize your punching skills.
Sometimes its just not a good idea to "trade punches" with a guy unless you really know what you are doing.
Never box with someone who is a better boxer than you. The smart fighter knows better than that.
What you need in these situations are time-tested moves specifically designed for stopping the boxing/punching style fighter.
That's what these two DVD's are all about; how to counter and stop the "boxer" style attack.
Your'e in a fight, you establish clinch and now are elated! Now it's time to let loose a barrage of knees - right? Not so fast! If you clinch up with someone who knows what they are doing, you are going to have a difficult time landing a blow past their defenses.
Sometimes, an opponent knows a few simple moves and that's all it takes to make it hard for you to use your clinch effectively.
In such situations its important to know how to counter these "clinch stoppers".
By mastering the techniques presented here you will greatly increase the effectiveness of your clinching attacks.
People in Thailand know that the region of Isan Thailand is the place that produces a large number of Muay Thai fighters. One very well known gym in the area is the Sor Katika Gym.
One thing about Sor. Katika Gym is that it is not advertised at all. Period. They are strictly word of mouth and very serious. If a boxer gets out of line during training for example being rude or drinking (because they mostly sleep and live there) they will be kicked out. Everyone around the area and in Chaingmai knows about this camp.
This gym is not at all about training foreigners.They don't make their money training foreigners - they train fighters and they are very well known. The main owner, Ajarn Vinit Tanjud is totally famous for his experience teaching/training young Thais around the country in Muay Thai as well as other sports. The other trainers at this gym are Kru Phanupong Tanjud and his brother Kru Bunyeim Doungrat.
This gym is SERIOUS about it's training. The boxers who train here have built names for themselves. Most have had success on the provincial level up to the national level, as well as having competed in the Youth Games, Sea Games and World Championships.
It was actually quite difficult for our crew to get the trainers to allow us to film their training and they were hesitant to give their secrets away. But finally they agreed and our crew had the unique opportunity to go to this facility and film two days of training.
Unfortunately, the videographer had an accident with the camera and the tape was damaged! Knowing that we would not have the chance to film again, we worked on the tape and recovered part of the damaged footage. The original audio was lost, as well as part of the video (real bummer) but the recovered footage is still enjoyable and informative. In fact, this footage is so rich in content and culture we decided to release it as a free bonus with this video collection.
Chakrit Muay Thai gym is located in Bangkok. Last spring our crew went there asked the trainer, Kru Samart Phetin, to teach us some of his favorite moves and training methods. The result is a very interesting set of footage that spans 2 DVDs.
Although this DVD is not in English, (it's actually in Thai), still it is quite easy to learn from what he has to show you, and thetechniques here will be intriguing even for those who have some Muay Thai experience.
Watch and learn from Kru Samart as he shows you: kicking exercises, Thai Pad drills, wall pad training, heavy bag work, some great kicking strategy and technique, countering the long range knee, sparring, elbow techniques, knee techniques and clinching, countering kicks, and more!
Located in Bangkok, Fighting Spirit Gym is run by Kru Dan Lyons and his assitant Kam. Some of the trainers at this gym are very seasoned, one having over 400 fights!
Motivational and inspiring. It's always a good thing to be open minded and watch how things are done at different gyms.
You can learn a lot from doing this!Watch how these guys train low kicks, elbows, punching, clinching, do pad work, train the "hangman" and more!
That's totally false! Yet, this sort of "old-fashioned" thinking is suprisingly still around today. Don't you believe it! You can learn important stuff from just an article or a book, but a video is even better than these.
It is true that video is not as good as "training in person" (nobody with any sense would ever claim that it was). What you miss with video is the interaction between instuctor and student, and that's what makes training in person the best option for learning.
But that doesn't mean you still can't learn - and learn a lot - from video! What you need to do is substitute instructor correction with personal correction. You have to be dilligent about making your technique look like the instructor's on the video.
Once you do that - Bam! Rest assured that you can indeed make great progress and learn an absolute TON from watching video, even if its not 100% as good working in person with a trainer.
Actually training with video has several important benefits, some of which you can't even get from live training:
WITH VIDEO, YOU SEE EXACTLY WHAT YOU WOULD SEE IF YOU WERE REALLY THERE. You miss absolutely none of that - and that goes a loooooong way to improving your skill and its been shown time and time again (for example, people are winning tournaments and fights every week from watching grappling videos!).
WITH VIDEO, YOU CAN WATCH THE INSTRUCTION TIME AND TIME AGAIN. You can't rewind and re-watch real life (unless of course you make your own amateur video)
WITH VIDEO, YOU CAN LEARN ANYWHERE YOU WANT, AT ANYTIME YOU WANT. Wake up at 3am because you can't sleep? Bored at home and want something fun and interesting to do? Traveling? Learn some Muay Thai!
WITH VIDEO, YOU CAN SAVE A TON OF MONEY. Video instruction is cheaper because you don't have to pay an instructor, don't have to take out a membership to a school or gym, and you don't have to take time off from work and travel. Most good DVDs (like ours) have YEARS WORTH of INSTRUCTION PACKED IN THEM
And now there is even more good news:
Obviously putting this set together is no easy task. It also costs us a lot more to put something together will all of this information. So unfortunately we have to charge more to make up for all that. Bottom line - this series retails for $247. And that's a darn good price considering all of the huge amounts of information that you will absorb quickly and easily.
But right now, we really want to build our customer base, we are going to put it on sale:
If you want to succeed in anything, ANYTHING AT ALL, if you have any GOALS that you want to REACH, then it cannot be emphasized enough that you need to make a plan and take ACTION.
This is the plan to some AWESOME, INCREDIBLE, Muay Thai skills. Muay Thai training is a If that sounds like something you would like to have - don't be some whiny, sissy-butt, life-waster - GO FOR IT NOW!
