A list of advanced Muay Thai combos for training and sparring


I wrote about regular Muay Thai combos and Dutch style kickboxing combinations in the past, and now it is time to share with you a list of an Advanced Muay Thai combinations. Advanced combos works best when you take 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.

A list of an advanced muay thai combos:


OK, let's get into the business. Pick a few combinations from this list and try them on heavy bag and/or on your sparring partner [orthodox stance]:
  • [Left] hook + [right] cross + [lef] hook + [right] body kick
  • [Left] hook + [right] straight + [switch] [left] body kick x2
  • [Left] jab + [right] cross +[left] jab + [right] hook to the body
  • [Left] jab + [Right] cross + [Left] hook + [right] leg kick
  • [Left] jab + [Left] hook + [right] leg kick

And one of Buakaw's favorite combos. A truly devastating combination:
  • [Right] Cross + [left] elbow + [right] short hook + [right] elbow
When delivered right it can eliminate the opponent from the fight by TKO due to elbow cut.
And finally some effective 4-count combos:
  • [Left] Head kick + [right] cross to the body + [left] hook to the body + [right] midsection kick
  • [Left] kick to the body + [right] cross + [left] jab + [right] kick to the body
  • [Right] kick to the body + [[Left] jab + [right] cross + [right] kick to the body
  • [Left] mid kick + [right] cross + [left] hook + [right] mid kick

I hope you will find those combos useful. Take a look at a link sectin below to find some more combinations:
