Knee Shields

In Muay Thai, it is important to learn how to defend against kicks which can be powerful and cause serious injury. One of the best techniques to use is the knee shield as it can be used by experienced fighters as well as beginners. On Wednesday, students learned how to properly execute the left, cross, and right knee shield. Some tips to remember when learning this move are the following: keep the core engaged and your body weight centered, bring your knee up as high as possible without sacraficing your balance, flex your foot and point your toes, keep your arm on the same side as the raised knee extended to help protect your head and body, and practice performing this move from different angles and against different styles of kicks. With practice the knee shield can become an effective defensive move and properly executing a knee shield will keep you safe while training.
