Theres a lot of lads who will go to a few classes and then decide they're a 'thai boxer' when in reality they go slug a pad twice a week and would get put on their arse by anyone with even a little bit of technique.
Anyone can twat a pad as hard as they can, not much good when the guy you're stood against blocks it and then hits you back twice as hard though.
One of the things I have learnt about Thai boxing very early on is that there is so much technique involved it's unreal, and if there isn't, you're training in the wrong place.
As my instructor always tells me, technique first, power will come
