Dean stressed the importance of respect with traditional Thai hand salutation.

Economical punching warm-up. One partner has a left bag glove and a right focus mitt and the other is vice versa (i.e. right bag glove and left focus mitt). Each partner does one strike for an entire interval and then they switch for a new round.
  • One side jabs, one side crosses
  • One side lead hooks, one side rear hooks (twist the rear knee to point towards the lead knee, turn the hand over "check the time")
  • One side lead uppercut, one side rear upper cut
Knee entries
  1. Scoop parry the jab (catch and then flick the punch laterally) followed by the rear knee
  2. Double or cross parry the cross (pull the punch laterally and inferiorly) followed by the rear knee
  3. Cover the hook, the lead hand grabs the neck on the same side (smothering the punch) followed by the curve knee
