Karuhat — Muay Thai: Reading, Timing, Double Weight, etc.

Postby marvin8 on Wed Apr 04, 2018 9:32 am

In these private lessons, Karuhat trains Sylvie not only techniques but how and when to use them. Regardless of MA style, Karhut directly/indirectly teaches important concepts including knowing the opponent, reading, timing, rhythm, feints, relaxation, double weight, hiding intent, weight shifting, substantial, insubstantial, etc.

Karuhat trains Sylvie how to read moments he/the opponent is double weighted, when to attack, how to hide her intentions, etc., in real time with light sparring.

My first day of a 3 day prep experiment with Karuhat.

We came to Bangkok a month early for 3 days to run an experiment to see if 2 privates a day and training at the very rigorous Dejrat Gym in the evenings, added to watching, recording and uploading video commentary was even feasible. It was going to be both psychologically and physically draining, and it turned out that I could handle it. This was the first Karuhat session of the 1st of those three days. If you are new to my work with Karuhat you can find multiple full sessions with commentary already in the Patreon Muay Thai Library project:

This was my 2nd day of our 3 day experiment - still struggling a little but starting to feel it.

The first two days of our 3 day experiment were pretty much a grind, a combination of pushing through the incredible pleasure of having the opportunity to work back-to-back on the same themes of development, but also feeling frustrated that I could not yet feel or see the hidden rhythms he’s pushing me toward:

Today things really started to click. I was saying in the pocket, and discovering rhythm.

This was my first good day. I’m not quite sure what happened, but this session really made me optimistic about what could be possible in April. There was just a powerful shift where not only did my attitude towards learning improve, also my aptitude did as well. I was staying in and not falling out, and I had picked up the rhythm that Karuhat was inviting me to feel:

Some really nice stuff in that last video about pivoting off the attack, using stutter step and reacting to the opponent`s rhythm, thanks for posting!

Sylvie's point was not to stutter step but, to shift one's weight smoothly. Shifting one's weight from leg to leg without stopping while timing the opponent's rhythm. This allows seamless transition between loading/unloading the hip to defend, attack or feint.

@ 2:06 of the previous video:
Sylvie wrote:"I am doing this stutter step thing again. I’m jerking my way forward, instead of floating my way forward. Look at how he does it. Look at his space. He does do like these little jerks. But, it’s his weight moving. It's not stopping. I’m basically like a pogo stick. And, he is like slicing through things."
