What are the fundamental kickboxing / Muay Thai combos?

What are the fundamental kickboxing / Muay Thai combos? I don’t need boxing combos as I have a boxing background. I’m looking at the basic combos using knees, elbows, muay thai kicks and maybe front kicks.

I think these would be some:
Jab – Muay Thai kick
Jab – Right Hand - Muay Thai Kick
Jab – Right Hand – Left Hook to the Body Mauy Thai Kick
Jab – Knees – Elbow.

Agree with those above? What else would be a fundamental combo?

start with the hands, finish with the legs usually holds some merit.

I'm still a Muay Thai noob (I do have 9 years experience with Kenpo) but I will say stance switching is an important aspect in addition to your combos and can be used in conjunction with eachother. Start working on that footwork early on because it's tricky and confusing at first (at least for me)

here's an example of what I'm talking about: YouTube - The Switch Kick

jab - right hand - roundhouse (bread and butter technique practise this with double roundhouse also)
jab - left hook - right hand - roundhouse
teep (step forward as you land) - knee to body

as someone said before - start with hands finish with kicks/knees

work on distance and closing it. also what combos work best depend on your body type ie do you have long/short arms/legs etc.

theres so much variation for example the teep tends to be a defensive kick but if you teep someone against the ropes you could catch them as they rebound with a nice roundhouse/flying knee/superman punch (mmmmm pause to contemplate!!)

keep training and trust your coach!!

Add a kick from your right if you finish your punch combo with your left. It takes some time to get used to, but will be well worth it when your opponent expects a right kick from your 1-2, but you suddenly fire off from the left.

Yup!

From right-handed perspective I.e. :
Cross-hook-cross followed by low roundhouse kick.

uppercut-cross-upper cut followed by low roundhouse kick.
