One of the most difficult skills to master in all of Muay Thai is counterattacking. It involves anticipation, timing and an immense amount of technique. However, once mastered, counterattacking can be one of the best tactics one could ever add to their arsenal.
In this video, multiple-time Muay Thai World Champion Orono Wor Petchpun demonstrates 5 Ways To Counterattack An Aggressive Fighter. As you can see, as soon as Orono blocks the attacks from his opponent, he immediately goes for the counterattack, using 5 different combinations.
Remember, to ensure that an aggressive fighter doesn’t land any punches, be prepared to defend and attack at all times. Effective defense and offense always come hand in hand, especially when it comes to Muay Thai.
Before you use these counterattacks in sparring, make sure you drill them with a partner first. This will help you work on your reaction time and develop your mindset of counterattacking.
