    Taller opponent

    I'm not gonna be hitting my Muay Thai school for about a month so I'm just gonna be sparring with a buddy whos quite taller. I'm used to sparring with opponents my height and I'm great when I get them in a clinch.. but my buddy is I believe more than a foot taller so I need some tips on strike battles against a taller opponent. I imagine one's game has to change against a taller opponent.

    Overhand. Overhand. Overhand. And try to avoid the clinch with taller people in Muay Thai.

    Bob and weave, keep your head moving and get inside, slip his punches, go for the body then the head.
