DAY 341: Muay Thai- side kick, hook kick?!

Hook kick is one of the rarer kicks thrown in Muay Thai. I used to be skeptical of this kick as it doesn’t look devastating and I felt it would at most give the opponent a slap. I was wrong. In muay thai, the striking area is the back of the heel. Due to the small area, the force is magnified! I could feel my partner’s heel eating into my forearms when he misses the thai pad. It could be devastating if it hits the nose or any other sensitive areas in the face!

Was really exhausted after the session due to the high number of kicks and the take downs. Great class though!
