Internal Muay Thai Training

 

 

 

Our Internal Muay Thai training is the synchronization of our Muay Thai Body Mechanics (Mae Mai) with the breath (pranayama) under a state of concentration (samathi) as the result of our meditation practice. Our Internal Muay Thai Training will help us to understand better how to use force and how to deal with pressure in a completely different level. This kind of training is almost lost within the fighting arts and we consider that is extremely important if we want to develop fighting further. 

 

MAE MAI BIOMECHANICS

The effective movements of Mae Mai are based on the fighting arts curriculum. The training emphasizes sweeps, locks and throws which are all related to disrupting the opponents balance. 

The Mae Mai training maintains a foundation of defensive open-handed movements and footwork patterns to absorb or deflect the opponent's force allowing us to understand better different ways to deal with force. 

Within the Mae Mai Biomechanics as well we have included certain warrior yoga postures (asanas) based on the fighting principles to develop a better gravity and balance. All the Asanas have their origin in Vedic martial arts and the routines can be practiced for both self-defense or for self-healing purposes.

 

PRANAYAMA BREATHING

Pranayama is a yogic discipline with origins from ancient India. "Prana" is the vital energy in the body which is responsible for our life force, and "ayama" means control. So Pranayama is "Control of the Breath"

Our training uses different pranayama exercises by extending or drawing out the breath as a main aspect of our practices.

If we want to reach a higher peak of performance we must understand correctly these breathing patterns. 

Pranayama breathing exercises are the second main aspect in our Internal Muay Thai Training.

 

SAMATHI MEDITATION

The term meditation refers to a form of practice where an individual trains the mind to observe what is in the present moment. 

A broad variety of sitting and moving meditation techniques are used to develop concentration and coordination. These practices as well can help us with many anxiety and tension problems.

Ultimately meditation will induce us into an state of higher conexion (satthi) between our movements, our breath and our mind.

The union of these three principles will create an efficient way of training creating more awareness and clarity in our daily practices.
