How Elite Muay Thai Fighters Use the Teep to the Leg to Kill an Opponents Balance & Attacks
The Teep (or front kick as it is sometimes known) is a technique synonymous with the art of Muay Thai. The straight leg kicking attack is favoured heavily by Muay Thai fighters all across the world. For good reason too. It is a highly effective tool and can be utilised effectively in a whole manner of different ways. Use's can include pushing opponents away to create distance, stabbing the solar plexus to knock the wind out of an attacking fighter and maintaining range (similar to how boxers use the jab).
The leg is often only targeted regularly with the teep by experienced fighters, as it takes practise and understanding as to how best to make it work consistently at the highest level of Muay Thai competition.
