Safe Muay Thai Sparring for Day 1 of Training w/ Emil Fitoussey

In this episode, Emil continues to explain how he does the constraints-led approach to Muay Thai. Other ways to control for intensity/going too hard How to introduce leg kicks and leg kick defense through sparring games What are the fundamentals of Muay Thai as a sport? How can we understand it at a dynamic and foundational level? How constraints can lead to adaptive or maladaptive fighting strategies How Emil conceptualizes the use of thai pads and heavy bags now Of particular note, Emil unpacks how he teaches his learners to coach each other and communicate for each other's safety and learning benefit. This is an amazing dynamic, and something I want to hear ecological coaches talking about more and doing more. --- If you're new to the show, please sign up to the Combat Learning Newsletter at combatlearning.com/newsletter.

Combat Learning: Science for Better Martial Arts Training
Combat Learning is about radically improving you as a teacher and learner of martial arts using the ecological dynamics and constraints-led approach to training. We explore the little-known frontiers of skill adaptation, perceptual-motor learning, and performance science for combat sports such as jiu jitsu, kickboxing, taekwondo, karate, muay thai, and more.
