    Here's a definition from Pedro Villalobos book:Fighting Strategies of Muay Thai. It'll describe it better than I can.

    "Rather than allowing the energy to travel forward in a straight line, the fighter adds the sixth power of triangulation by pushing his fist downward upon impact. The fighter literally drives the energy into the target and down toward the ground.
    The thai fighter's fist rides this downward circle like a wave and returns like a whip to the guard position. Thus the energy is "triangulated" from the figher's feet, up through the body and shoulder, out through the arm and fist, into the opponent, and then back down to the ground under the opponent's feet, where it theoretically rebounds."

    It appears to me that is how the thai fighter is throwing punches in the video and that is how my MT instructor taught me to throw punches.

    Hmmm,

    That is not triangulation, lol. He gave 5 points it is some sort of 5 sided polygon (pentagon). A triangle has 3 sides. So, from the ground too the feet, out the fist into the opponent would be better.

    It must be ome of the "new" geometry I heard of.


    All in fun,

    great vids. There is another free series there on youtube but it's not very good.



    For example:

    I highly recommend getting the Video Downloader extension for firefox and downloading those great videos to have locally.

    question.

    from what i could decypher in the woman's narration, in the kick video, she talks about the front kick, and how the intended points of impact are the instep and the toes...

    really? couldn't that go seriously wrong, if say you hit and opponent in the chin with your toes? i mean, i'm no expert, which is why i am asking.

    surprises me, as muay thai tends to go for the "stronger" parts of the body for kick striking, as opposed to karate or TKD. where karate/TKD uses the instep for a turning kick, muay thai goes for the shin. seems surprising to me that where TKD looks to pull the toes up, to strike with the "palm" of the foot, which IMO would hurt the attacker less, and probably the opponent more, as it is more solid, muay thai turns to the instep/toes.

    and before one of you guys with something up your ass tries to ambush me and say TKD sucks, that has nothing to do with this post, as i am just establishing a comparison because i am geniunely curious.

    anyone care to shed some light on this?

    Got me, that's not a technique I've ever been taught from any of my muay thai instructors.

    on another note... why are both you and the thai dude in your sig with your guard down during that kick? :p

    looks to me as tho if your potential opponents sidestepped to your right, they could pop you in the face.
