A list of advanced Muay Thai combos for training and sparring
I have written about basic Muay Thai combos and Dutch style combinations in the past (links at the bottom of this page), so now I will share with you a list of an advanced Muay Thai combinations.
Advanced combos work best when you take a control the fight and are able to impose your pace and your own style of fighting on your opponent.
An introduction to advanced Muay Thai combos:
Many times the difference between an advanced Muay Thai combo and a simple combination is not a number of "counts" but a level of fitness you need to achieve to be able to deliver it successfully to your opponent. Let's take a look at this kick combo [both orthodox stance]:
[Left] inside leg kick [to you opponent's lead leg] then step back + [right] outside leg kick [to your opponents lead leg] - [right] kick to the body
Doesn't look like much but you have to be quick and accurate - if you miss the second kick you will not be able to follow up with the third - and the third kick must be delivered right after the second one. It may feel more natural to make a switch and kick with your left leg at the end of the combo. It all depends on the situation - you have to avoid a risk of a leg catch.
