Saenchai Style Stutter Kick Technique Tutorial | How to Close Distance
Saenchai is known for his trickery against bigger, stronger, and taller opponents. As a shorter fighter it may be difficult to get in close or to make a sizable opponent freeze in place. There is no one better at solving this issue in the game of Muay Thai then the legend Saenchai himself.
There is a specific technique that I have seen used in a variety of ways by Ognjen Topic, another agile & trick style fighter. [You can check out a number of Ognjen’s Tutorials on our channel]
Interestingly enough, I have began to use this technique as a tall fighter.

To close the distance against a smaller and possibly faster fighter who is running on the outside of my long range. . . this fake became my solution.
Tall or short, the technique that you see popularized by the legend Saenchai can become a part of your arsenal:
Drill, drill, drill, implement, then drill some more.
