Sukreeep Thon Ton Rang is the technique that to protect from kick attack, in the same time respond by lift up the attacker’s leg to response in order to make the attacker loose the balance so the defensive have an opportunity to attack by other Mauy Thai techniques. The picture illustrates when the attacker kick to the body and the defensive use the left arm to block and in the same time grab the attacker’s leg up high in order to make attacker lose balance. Today this technique has been used in professional Muay Thai but not exactly the same with this illustration. The technique normally called “Tai Na” (ไถนา) which the defensive boxer grab and carry the attacker’s leg push the attacker forward.
