Muay Thai shadow boxing training.

At the beginning of your training when they tell you to make a vacuum, you never know what to do exactly, so you start watching what others do but it’s not always the right thing to do.

This is a workout that you can do as shadow boxing Muay Thai with ideas to do a functional workout.

Work on each series for 2 minutes with a 30-second break.

There are 6 workspaces so in total it’s 15 minutes of vacuum including breaks.

Important!! , maintain a high intensity as both running speed and power.

It varies the pace of execution and does not look on the ground.

Don’t stand still!

Use the space you have and emphasize footwork!

Do not perform stationary techniques and combinations.

Important, don’t forget to properly warm up your muscles before any physical workout to avoid injury.

Do at least 3 rounds of jumping rope or very light vacuum.

You can also use the original Thai namman Muay oil to warm up your muscles well.


Single work area in Muay Thai Shadow Boxing:

Make a vacuum using the shots you know.


Combined area in Muay Thai Shadow Boxing:

1) Boxing – Elbows

2) Boxing – Kicking

3) Boxing – Knees

4) Elbows – Knees

5) Kicking – Knees

6) Kicking – Elbows


Merge the two workspaces using the shots you know.

Clinch area in Muay Thai Shadow Boxing:

  • Elbow shots from the Clinch
  • Straight skip knees
  • Curve skip knees
  • Combined skip knees (straight and curve)



  • All together,away, everything you know (Boxing, Kicking, Elbows, Knees, Clinch)



Imagine defending yourself from a low kick to your left leg. You can use the same defense but different answers (options) and make it a series of combinations:

1) Left Shield, Foot Jab

2) Left Shield, Left Kick

3) Left Shield, Right Kick

4) Left Shield, Right Knee

5) Left Shield, Left Knee

6) Left Shield, Cross

… Etc.

Ps. You can vary the shot you receive.

Given the wide use in Muay Thai I deliberately inserted the Low Kick shot.


The series you read is just one example, you can create your own and work on those, but start trying out the ones I propose.

  • Boxing evasiveness (Slip, Duck, Sway back, Bob, Bob & Weave, Shoulder Roll)
  • Upper Blocks (Side Cover, Front Cover, Cross Cover)
  • Leg Blocks (Leg Shield, Cross Shield, low line, middle line)



The void is a fundamental exercise that all the pros perform because it is beyond a physical training is a mental training and helps to internalize combinations, strategies, movements and if done well it is an exercise that tests you both physically and mentally.

Perform the vacuum wearing gloves and mouthguard to get used to the fighting condition, and if required also the helmet and the para tibia.

This does not mean that you have to do shadow boxing with all the protections every time, it also depends in this case what is the goal of this training session but when you go towards the date of the match then it is important that you feel comfortable with the equipment you will have on the ring.

It is important that during the empty sessions you stay focused and maintain a certain volume of blows or dodges, etc. because a too bland rhythm is not realistic and not very productive as training.

Follow the advice I gave you in this post as a track especially if you are not used to this type of training and write me in the comments how you found yourself following this track.

Happy shadow boxing training for Muay Thai, fight and train with your shadow!

Written by Andrea

Con una passione per la difesa personale e gli sport da combattimento, mi distinguo come praticante e fervente cultore e ricercatore sulle metodologie di allenamento e strategie di combattimento.

La mia esperienza abbraccia un vasto panorama di discipline: dal dinamismo del Boxing alla precisione del Muay Thai, dalla tecnica del Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu all'energia del Grappling, dal Combat Submission Wrestling (CSW) all'intensità del Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).

Non solo insegno, ma vivo la filosofia di queste arti, affinando costantemente metodi e programmi di allenamento che trascendono il convenzionale.

La mia essenza si riflette nell'autodifesa: Filipino Martial Arts (FMA), Dirty Boxing, Silat, l'efficacia del Jeet Kune Do & Kali, l'arte della scherma con coltelli e bastoni, e la tattica delle armi da fuoco.

Incarno la filosofia "Street Fight Mentality", un approccio senza fronzoli, diretto e strategico, unito a un "State Of Love And Trust" che bilancia l'intensità con la serenità.

Oltre al tatami, la mia curiosità e competenza si spingono verso orizzonti diversi: un blogger professionista con la penna sempre pronta, un bassista dal groove inconfondibile e un artigiano del coltello, dove ogni lama è un racconto di tradizione e innovazione. Questa sinfonia di abilità non solo definisce la mia identità professionale, ma dipinge il ritratto di un individuo che nella diversità trova la sua unica e inconfondibile voce e visione.

Street Fight Mentality & Fight Sport!
