some padwork at PTT

I'm now nearly three full weeks of doing nothing but training (other than a brief getaway for New Year's) here in Phuket. Last Friday I took a private class with one of the Muay Thai instructors. It was a very technical, low-intensity 60 minutes of padwork. Which is perfect because I wasn't feeling well that morning and as it turns out would end up being sick (stomach flu) the rest of the weekend. Nevertheless I think I was able to focus enough on technique for the class. I made the following video to give a glimpse of what this lesson was like:

I've got one more week to go. I think I've learned a lot here and definitely improved my conditioning! If only I could keep myself healthy in Thailand. Oh well, at least I didn't get dengue fever, like I did last time I was here.
