Muay High: Class 1 – Common Mistakes


Welcome to the first class of ‘Muay High!’ – Common Mistakes. MTBUK will be sharing a hand picked, 10 part series from videos made and created by the WARRIOR COLLECTIVE.  From some of the best Muay Thai fighters and head instructors in the country at their respective gyms. Theres tons more content on the Warrior Collective You Tube channel and we would strongly recommend you subscribe on YouTube and follow them on social media for some awesome tutorials and plenty more interesting stuff. We, of course, will be focussing on the Muay Thai, SO LETS GET TO IT!!

Common Mistakes

What better place to start than with Common Mistakes by the super talented Paul Karpowicz, who as it happens, is my head instructor at 2 Technical in Greater Manchester. Paul is great to watch both in the ring and in the gym, so if you are in the Greater Manchester area and want to learn from the man they call ‘The Magician’ then head on down.

A brief overview of what is covered in this video is:

  1. Common mistakes with the jab and how to counter it
  2. Common mistakes with the left hook and how to counter it
  3. Common mistakes when telegraphing your attacks and how to counter it

We all have all been there, some of us still are! But its not where you are, its where you are going and if you have the will, then you will achieve the skill – whether a novice or at a higher level this short video will show you what not to do, what to look out for to ensure you counter your opponent clinically and effectively. It is important to recognise bad habits early, because it will be much harder further down the line to correct as opposed to nipping it in the bud early. You can start as you mean to go on, so can we with this 10 part series!

Keep an eye out for part 2 over the coming days, in the meantime, head over to our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep up to date with all things Muay Thai and MTBUK related! We hope you enjoy watching this tutorial!

  1. Paul’s tip about keeping your guard hand slightly further forward when throwing a hook is a genius piece of advice.
