Muay Thai Roundhouse/Oblique Kick
In this video, Kru Phon and Dejsoria are going to show you how to do a muay thai roundhouse kick. A lot of people call this kick roundhouse kick or diagonal kick, but the exact translation is oblique kick. In Thai, this kick is called Te Chiang (เตะเฉียง). "Te" is the Kick and "Chiang" means Oblique. Obviously, this kick is called oblique kick, because you are kicking to the obliques. There are other circular kicks in muay thai, such as the cut kick, the thigh kick and the down-roundhouse kick. Westerners call all of them roundhouse kicks, but as I said, the Thai name will give you a better understanding. For more muay thai videos, click here.
