Muay Thai Drill - Leg Check to 4 Strike Combo

You'd be surprised to see how many people have a hard time flowing in and out of techniques outside of a simple jab/cross/hook, and even more surprised to see how many people have an even harder time incorporating blocks and kicks into the normal flow of fighting.

Not the best video in the world, but this is actually a great combination to warm up with-

Low kick check
Step back into ground to bounce back into a thai roundhouse kick
Drop into inside of striking zone
Cross/Jab/Pick Kick to leg

People who understand the sweet science (boxing) should also understand the importance of being able to load up on shot after shot without getting off balance, and it's high time that more and more 'make-shift' muay thai folk start understanding it as well. Just because you can throw a decent power roundhouse doesn't suddenly make you a MT expert. There is definitely technique and balance of movement involved, and it pisses me off to see so many people ignoring that fact.

As I always say: keep practicing.
