5 Advanced Muay Thai Combos To Try In Sparring
Variety is the spice of life.
It’s time to put on your big boy pants, because we’re getting advanced. Basic strikes can come together by building upon each other and creating combos difficult to evade or otherwise defend. However, basics can get stale, and sometimes we need a little more.
Basics aren’t getting the job done? Then let’s kick this into high gear and start slinging leather. Let’s get advanced.
Advanced combos, like all combos and strikes, are supposed to catch the opponent off guard. What you present to the opponent will be the information he has to read, if you’ve yet to throw out any evidence of a high kick or a superhuman punch, then this may be your break…ing of his face. The aim is unpredictability, and what better way to be unpredictable than a little chaos?

However, we’re kicking this into a higher gear. More than simplicity, we need trickery.
