Video: How to Do a Muay Thai Roundhouse Kick
The muay Thai roundhouse kick is one of the most powerful strikes a person can deliver. Unlike many snapping kicks from other arts that rely on the quadriceps to produce power, the muay Thai kick utilizes the entire body in the movement. The kick derives its power from the rotational movement of the body, mainly the hips and trunk muscles.
The roundhouse is a versatile strike that can be thrown to numerous targets, including the leg (both inner and outer thigh), the body, the neck, and the head. If you are trying to develop your kick you have to make sure to train it on all the various modalities available at your gym.
