10 Basic Muay Thai combinations.
Wait? Isn’t this quantity over quality? Well, that depends on how you look at it.
Quantity is an often overlooked component of training. The focus on quality is often at the forefront of everyone’s vision. It makes sense, because by attempting to spread yourself across you will be spreading yourself thin, thus proving the inferiority of quantity.
In what world, then, would it be sane to suggest that quantity rule over quality?
In one where mistakes can be made.
Training can often get stale when all you do is sharpen your own tools. When one is preparing for a fight, any mistake in training can be costly and throw off the entire training camp, the margins of error are thin. No room for no lollygagging up in this.
What about when you’re not training for a fight? That’s when the fun begins.
When you’re training for fun and to develop skills, that’s when you can throw everything at the wall and see what sticks. Finding new tunes to fit your groove.
If you want development, allow yourself to loosen up and remove yourself from the heel of perfection. Be indifferent to it. By taking stabs at the bull’s-eye that is perfection, you’ll see the forest for the trees…and nothing else. If you want to innovate, take a step back and see things anew.
Combinations are a jolly good time.
A simple addition of a strike can completely change it’s dynamic. Add in a body shot to a basic 1-2-3 and you’ll find new opportunities open up for you.
However, if you want to create a mother load of unpredictability…broken rhythm is your man.
Combination finishes are the ways to go.
A beautiful setup tends to breed a beautiful finish. And, oh, what beauty one may find within a forest of flurries. The opponent will find his chin at the end of your fist, and you may just find yourself standing upon the turnbuckle screaming your lungs out in victory.
A joyful sight that is, and a beautiful combination finish this is…from Lawrence Kenshin Striking Breakdowns:
