Training for a Kickboxing/ Thai fight, general info.

Basic Training for Thai/ kickboxing:
  1. Fifteen minutes of rope skipping at different speeds
  2. Shadow boxing for five rounds with one-minute breaks, using all offensive techniques, including fists, knees and feet
  3. Bag practice for five rounds with one-minute breaks, using all attacks in a Thai Boxer’s repertoire
  4. Sparring with a senior fighter or trainer who wears specially designed protective pads on his or her forearms. He or she uses only defensive moves and directs the attacks of the boxer, who is to react as fast as he or she can using any technique he or she sees fit
  5. General exercise such as push-ups, sit-ups, and light weight training
  6. Roadwork: this is normally done early in the morning and consists of at least one half-hour of jogging and includes five rounds of running at increased speed for three minutes. During one-minute breaks the runner does not rest but keeps on jogging
All phases of the workouts are controlled by a stop-watch or timer. The last thirty seconds in each three-minute period are announced, and all exercises, including running, are executed at full speed and power.

Diet basics:
The fighters live on a controlled diet determined by the trainer. Its main ingredients are lean meat, fresh vegetables, and plenty of fruit, supplemented by milk and eggs.

Taking fights at last minute

I hear the younger guys taking fights at last minute, with little to NO training what so ever, an expecting to win. here is the problem with that. They hear that on TV and don't stop to think that the people who step in at last minute have usually been training for a fight or already in fight shape when they decide to take it. These young guys who come off the couch and take on fights are basically a piece of meat for the promoter to fill the card with. The guy they are fighting has been training and someone had to pull out of the fight for whatever reason and looking for a replacement, so they are at their peak and ready for war, the ones who come off the couch are well....idiots!!! With that being said, if you are one to take last minute fights, be ready and train as if you have a fight coming up, so you can at least have a good chance in getting that W.

Handling success

Success is great, but you must be humble. Arrogance and boasting about your success only leads to no one wanting to help or anyone caring. Be thankful to ALL of those who help you and push you to be better. Never challenge the ones who help you in your journey to be your best, you will only find yourself left alone without anyone to help you continue to grow. It is okay to have fun with your teammates and coaches, but also respect their roles in which they play in your quest.
