Topic:Beyond The Muay Thai Stance On The London Tube

This morning I’m braving the London’s weekday rush-hour heading to Covent Garden for my daughter’s Royal Ballet Workshop. Riding on the Underground Tube car presented an unexpected opportunity to train a bit of stance and balance.

I managed to score a seat for my daughter, but I was left standing as the tube car began to accelerate out of the station. Boom, I instinctively adopted an athletic stance, flexing at my knees and hips while actively feeling for the floor with my feet. I handled the shifting floor without the need to grab desperately at a handle or rail – I can’t say the same for others around me.

Observing the balancing strategies of the other Tube commuters, most didn’t have a cue how to stay on their feet in the absence of something to grab hold of. So here’s today’s inspiration – a few thoughts you may not have considered on how to remain balanced in your Muay Thai stance.
