Don’t let an #injury slow you down! If you can’t kick, punch (as Viktor is doing here with coach Mike). Can’t punch? Do kicks and knees. If you can’t even elbow, come to the gym and practice your #staredown 😖
In all seriousness though, it has been scientifically proven that you can acquire #motorskills through observation only. It is said that master #heliogracie wasn’t allowed to practice #bjj , having been deemed too frail, and watched only until one day he was forced to substitute teach the class, which he did brilliantly. The rest is history! ***************************************************** #muaythai #muaythaitraining #muaythaifighter #thaiboxing #nakmuay #kickboxing #fighting #martialarts #mma #training #fitness #martialartslife #boxing #boxeo #artesmarciales #luta #astoria #astorialife #queens #longislandcity #nyc #woodside #sunnyside #corona

Smashing the #bananabag with #kicks is an almost daily necessity, but it doesn’t always have to be boring. Here we simply attached a shinpad to the bag in order to work on practicing the correct #footwork and #angle for the lead #lowkick agains a #southpaw #fighter *************************************************** #muaythai #muaythaitraining #muaythaifighter #thaiboxing #nakmuay #kickboxing #fighting #martialarts #mma #training #fitness #martialartslife #boxing #boxeo #artesmarciales #astoria #astoriaqueens #queens #longislandcity #nyc #woodside #sunnyside #corona

We try to switch up our #warmup focusing on different things such as #cardio #speed #coordination #strength and #explosiveness Also, good not to fall into a routine and keep it interesting. ***************************************************** #muaythai #muaythaitraining #muaythaifighter #thaiboxing #nakmuay #kickboxing #fighting #martialarts #mma #training #fitness #martialartslife #boxing #boxeo #artesmarciales #astoria #astoriaqueens #astorialife #queens #longislandcity #nyc #woodside #sunnyside #corona

A lot of #mass properly displaced towards an opponent’s head will pack devastating #kineticenergy This is aptly demonstated in #sumo where there are no #punches but only #openhand #pushes and #slaps as well as bumps with various parts of the upper body. *************************************************** #sumoknockout #strikingpower #martialarts #artesmarciales #combatsport #boxing #boxeo #mma #japan #japaneseculture #yokozuna #muaythai #muaythaigym #thaiboxing #asashoryu

Today is #mongoliannewyear eve, known as “bituun” It is a #lunarnewyear like the one celebrated in China, Tibet and elsewhere in Asia. So in its honor, coach Jamul will make #Raktan members hand-stamped #metal disk thingy for #bracelets or #pendants with “Raktan” on top and any word or number or combination thereof with maximum 8 characters, like the one shown above. Only 9 will be made, so email raktanmt@gmail.com with your request, including what you would like it to say on the bottom half. First come - first serve. Happy #yearofthedog 🙏🏼 Ummm.... shouldn’t have to say this, but of course it’s free - that’s what the definition of a gift is ***************************************************** #muaythai #muaythaigym #handcrafted #tsagaansar #RaktanMuayThai #raktanhorde #cracktan #valiant #myintent

#fighting is like being in a highly dysfunctional relationship - you take some to dish out even more, you somehow enjoy this whole process and, in the end, feel closer to the other person❤️❤️❤️😂😂😂 This week we’re focusing on hitting back under pressure, in honor of #valentinesday #lol ****************************************************** #muaythai #muaythaitraining #muaythaifighter #thaiboxing #nakmuay #kickboxing #fighting #martialarts #mma #training #fitness #martialartslife #boxing #boxeo #artesmarciales #luta #moderntraining #astoria #astoriaqueens #astorialife #queens #longislandcity #nyc #woodside #sunnyside #corona

This is a super friendly and chill event - send us your weight; years/months trained and fight record, if any (for most this will be the 1st experience); gym affiliation if any.

#headmovement excercise - whether #technicalsparring or doing #mittwork make sure that you are aiming directly at the head of your partner. Aiming over the head or purposefully missing is a disservice! You are better off slowing down but still throwing accurately so your partner practices fully knowing that they will get hit if they don’t keep their eyes open and properly execute the evasive movement with right timing. ***************************************************** #muaythai #muaythaitraining #muaythaifighter #thaiboxing #nakmuay #kickboxing #fighting #martialarts #mma #training #fitness #martialartslife #boxing #boxeo #artesmarciales #luta #moderntraining #Raktan #astoria #astoriaqueens #astorialife #queens #longislandcity #nyc #woodside #sunnyside #corona

A good way to practice #teeptotheface is on a #maizeball This technique is also called “foot touches face” in Thai (#batalooppak ) and is considered disrespectful, so we don’t allow it in sparring because of that and also because it’s quite dangerous. However, a fight between equals or #farangs is a different matter and the #kick can be very effective. It requires a high level of precision as well as balance and the drill shown develops both - try to do 20 kicks in a row while maintaining balance and hitting the small maize ball accurately and with control so it doesn’t jump all over the place. ****************************************************** #muaythai #muaythaitraining #muaythaifighter #thaiboxing #nakmuay #kickboxing #fighting #martialarts #mma #training #fitness #martialartslife #boxing #boxeo #artesmarciales #astoria #astoriaqueens #astorialife #queens #longislandcity #nyc #woodside #sunnyside #corona

#youngguns @jefry_bonilla056 and @sebastian25v.priv after doing their first #fightcamp 👍🏼 There are few things better for teenage boys than #combatsports - we know because that’s how we stayed out of trouble and learned #respect and #selfcontrol Raktan offers a special rate for #teenagers 13-17 *************************************************** #muaythai #muaythaitraining #muaythaifighter #thaiboxing #nakmuay #kickboxing #fighting #martialarts #mma #training #fitness #martialartslife #boxing #boxeo #artesmarciales #astoria #astoriaqueens #astorialife #queens #longislandcity #nyc #woodside #sunnyside #corona
