The way I trained it.
More specifically, the footwork. I have, for the most part, given up on pads except as a nice little aerobic work out to try and keep the waistline in. The only places you are likely to see anything different is in the 3 kicks I actually land. All the kicks are basically the same but I applied used a different part of the "step" on those 3. (technically, 2 kicks and one knee.)
Check the thread:
And rather than wading through the thread for the link that comes later of my actual kick, here it is:
The reason those 3 "kicks" landed is directly related to the "unorthodox" training method. The other thread got a bit obscure so I started this one which should be less CMA-specific. I also am kind of avoiding the other one untill I hopefully can make a decent sparring clip to give a feel for how I actually do walk around in that context.
I've seen enough "How do Muay Thai roundhouse kick" threads to make me sick. All that text and no clips. I also think my couple of threads should highlight part of why "...uh...that's not "kung fu" that's just kickboxing...." happens. This is almost pure CMA here I'm sharing. I train that kick mostly by just working the footwork shown at the beggining of the other thread. That's about it. Then if I need to throw some high rounds I improvise. The high kick counter at the beggining of the second clip on this thread was something I picked up in my Hung Gar days. Pretty typical for my using Hung Gar sparring anyone who likes to kick a lot. The basic structure of the drill though, I must admit, is something I learned in a Muay Thai gym.
