A complete fighters switch step tutorial, including technical drill breakdowns to optimise power through timing and foot placement.
Some fighters struggle to find the correct movement pattern for an effective switch step, and coaches can struggle to teach this to students that ‘don’t get it’.
This fighters switch step tutorial video looks at building the foundation switch step footwork, ready to power up both your attacking and evasive movements, and create that stuttering, tricky action to feint and follow up in broken rhythm.
Starting Drills In The Warm Up
I love to use those ‘starting drills’ as part of a Muay Thai specific warm up to prime the switch step for the rest of the session.
Give them a try, and let me know if they help!
