Traditional Muay Thai

Learning Muay Thai is said to preach the art of manliness, but a large number of aspirers get confused between the traditional one and the new Dutch style. Here is the difference that you must know if you have made your mind to move to any training camp of Thailand.
Traditional Muay Thai:
In traditional Muay Thai, there present is a bouncing rhythm as well as marching rhythm in which feet moves in resonance with the hands. It may also require putting the weight on the rear foot, tapping of front foot, etc. Also, the distance between the stances is pretty narrow, and one can lift the knees for blocking or kicking purpose.
The centre of focus is on following elements;
-Clinch fighting
Attritional style of fighting is more common to stand in front of each other and to attack. If any fighter will take a step back or will slow down, he will lose the battle.
Dutch Style fighting:
Now when it comes to a Dutch style, the natural pose gets a little alternation. For instance, unlike traditional style, the stance here is a little wider, hips are going to experience slighter movement, and more focus will be on punches rather than kicks. This standard methodology can be seen in any training camp.
Like traditional fighters, Dutch Muay fighters also do the finishing with high lower kicks, but throw-in more punches to the opponent. However, the training is very hardcore to build a stronger health profile as it is needed in traditional Muay Thai. To look into the difference with more clarity, it wise to compare the playing style of some regular players with that of Dutch Muay players.
Names like “Buakaw”, “Pakorn”, “Senchai”,”Samart”,”Somrak” are associated with traditional Muay Thai champions.
