New to Muay Thai, need Rhythm Help.
My primary art has been Tae Kwon Do for about 14 years now. I trained off and on for about 10 of those years in non-TKD gyms by myself, developing my own style and sparring/fighting with others on a regular basis. With the exception of the past 3 years, which I was sick in the hospital for 1 1/2 yrs and then a lazy couch potato for the last 1 1/2 yrs. After this absence I knew I was no longer in any shape to be training by myself but I wanted something with less forms and more fighting and I found a Muay Thai school. I am badly out of shape, as my punches and kicks have even less power now than when I was in TKD. My instructor has me doing double roundhouse from a Muay Thai stance. Long story short, I suck at this unless I have a heavy bag to hit. If I have to hit a TKD focus pad with this combo then I fail miserably. My instructor says I need to work on my rhythm but I am not sure how. I know I am used to a fixed back stance and not the Muay Thai stance and this fact throws me off. Help for this out of shape newbie?
