Muay Thai, also known as “the art of eight limbs”, is a martial art that utilizes a combination of fists, elbows, knees, and shins for both offense and defense. Although considered to be one of the most vicious and brutal combat sports around, it is also a martial art that showcases beautiful techniques and an intelligent approach to fighting.
This is represented perfectly by the always seamless and deadly combinations of four-time Lumpinee Muay Thai World Champion Sagetdao Petpayathai. In this video, Sagetdao showcases the fluid use of all the eight limbs of Muay Thai in 10 deadly combinations from the southpaw stance.
As it is with all martial arts, the key to perfecting these Muay Thai combinations is constant practice. These combinations will require you to be smart, fast and technically competent in order to land, so be sure to focus on perfecting the different techniques first before adding speed and power.
Finally, practice the combinations lightly during sparring to make sure they come naturally to you when the opportunity to use them presents itself.
