    Muay Thai – Low Kick Advanced Kick Shield Drills with Darren O’Connor

    Kick shield drills are popular to utilise within all striking sports.  They are especially useful to those training in Muay Thai who want to work their low kicks in order to develop power, speed and explosiveness.  Typically, newer athletes or less experienced coaches use them in quite a basic way.  However, they can actually be used for developing advanced skills as long as you understand the key concepts and methods which allow this to happen.
