This has really been driving me nuts and is the reason I have joined this forum. I am not really a beginner at muay Thai. I have lived in Thailand a number of years and had 1 fight a few years ago in my twenties. I do still train here everyday but most schools are quite run of the mill where you go in and do your routine and leave with little technical work on techniques. My issue is distance and putting together simple fluent combos of say jab, cross, kick for example. Jab then cross... ok but then I am to close to follow up with any kind of kick. Kicking from this position I connect the bag around the knee area. To connect at lower shin I need to move back as I am too close. Then from this position where it is comfortable to kick from I am much too far out to connect a punch. I see other people throw this combo fluently and it is a major part of muay thai. I am quite lanky at 6ft 3inch and have long legs I wonder if that is why I have this issue. Any tips or pointers on correcting this would be much appreciated. Sometimes it comes up during pads and I have tried a few times to show the trainer but he never fixes it. It's very frustrating as jab, cross kick seems such a simple combo.
