    Mid muay thai roundhouse horizontal or diagonal axis?

    when a thai pad holder holds the pad it is often inclined at an angle of 45 degrees which seems to cause the kicker to kick almost diagonally "upwards". questions is, isn't the force suppose to be more horizontal then diagonal?

    to make myself clearer take a look at the vid. In 1:35 of this vid when siamkor does his lead leg roundhouse to the mid section, the force of his kick seems to travel in horizontal plane. However in 1:40 it seem that he is kicking diagonally upwards. i believe that both of the kicks are the same kicks but why is it that the kicks looks so different? so when we are doing shadow boxing, should we kick diagonally upwards or horizontally?

    This has been discussed at length in Strikeistan, I believe. The whole crew chimed in. This EXACT topic.

    this could be the reason why...

    Sorry people havent been very imformative.

    I think that it depends on what school to train in . I have studied both Thai style and Dutch style Muay Thai. In Thai Style they seem to put more emphasis on turning the hip over and driving the force Horz , the more you turn your hip over the more power you will generate. In Dutch style they are alot more focused on combos so they do not turn their hip over as much , but they tend to focus on turning the foot over more. For reason for this is because if you do turn your hip over to much , it is not as easy to follow up the kick with punches.
