All right, guys. Now we’re doing kick boxing partner pad training. So first we’re going to start off obviously we need a pair of pads, muay Thai pads, they’re a little longer than regular boxing pads. It’s going to be very helpful for the kicks, okay? Face me, but first we’re going to start out with our punches, okay? Nice and easy, hands up. Usually when doing pads you want to make sure that the person you’re training with is punching across. So one across your face, not towards, one. You don’t want this just in case they turn into your face. So nice and easy, one-two, across. One-two, good, and one-two. One-two, one-two, and one-two, one-two.

This is a good time to work on your defense, making sure you’re staying relaxed, having punches come to your face and not freaking out, one-two, one-two. So I’m staying in the strong stance. I’m staying there, one-two, one-two. And one more time one-two, one-two. Good, staying nice and calm. Now we’re going to go with a hook, nice and easy, one-two, and I’m going to turn my pad. So now she can hook nice and easy, okay? One-two, hook, go. One-two, hook. And again, go one-two hook. And one more one-two, hook. Notice I’m still turning my body almost as if I’m doing a one-two hook myself, just not extending my arms any more.

All right, nice and easy, we’re going to do uppercuts. Obviously, if she’s going to do an uppercut, my pad needs to be pointing down. So let me get a one-two uppercut, uppercut. Go one-two, uppercut, uppercut. Good, nice and tall, go. And one-two, uppercut, uppercut. And one more time, go. One-two uppercut, uppercut. Eventually now you start playing with these combos, right? Double jab, double jab two, one-two, hook two, one-two up-up hook. Okay, and that’s with the punches. Now we’ll just move on towards our elbows. Nice and easy, let me get a right elbow, good. Now with the elbow guys it’s very important that you definitely keep your face away, because you can get away with one or two punches by mistake, not elbows, okay?

So now we’re going to combine the elbows with the punches, double jab, right elbow. Go, jab-jab, good. And again, jab-jab, good. And one more jab-jab, good. Now double jab, right elbow, left elbow. Go jab-jab, elbow, elbow, good. And again jab-jab, elbow, elbow. And again, jab-jab, elbow, elbow, good. Let’s give Melissa a little breather all right? Now we’re going to move on to the front kick. Okay, so with the front kick we’re going to take this pad, you’re going to flip your hand over real quick and just put this pad right in your belly and put this pad right in front. So nice and easy, hands up. It’s going to look like this. Stand in a strong stance and left front kick. Good, and again, left front. Good, and left front.
