    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!! :icon_chee

    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.

    we worked this drill yesterday, not sure how practical the combo is but it should provide some good practice:

    if you're orthodox:
    left uppercut (turn body while executing)
    right straight
    left hook
    right knee
    right leg kick
    switch left head kick

    Thats like asking how to get your blue belt in Jiu Jitsu, way to much to cover here. I'd recommend buying Rob McCullough's DVD, I have it and it really helped prepare me before I hooked up with my gym. And now you can get it for like $40 bucks.
