    Two more I want to add as well:

    1. (Which I stole from Quinton Jackson over Kevin Randleman) Get them in the clinch, make sure you have control of their head, throw a few knees and then when they start resisting to posture up and stand up straight, release them and go for the straight cross as soon as they are in the right spot.

    ^^ It seems to work often enough. I think people feel they weathered the storm after the knees and take a moment (that they apparently won't have) to breathe.


    2. A simple combination, but effective. throw a 1-3 (jab, hook), followed by a body kick or preferably a leg kick, followed by a side kick or push kick (rear leg for both)*

    *Note, faking a cross when going for the hook helps because it gives you extra power of course. Additionally, make sure you step out a good portion on the first kick. This way, you've created a nice angle for the push kick or side kick. In otherwords, move forward, move forward.. step out and kick, go into fighting stance and throw the final kick.

    A nice elbow combination for Muay Thai. Might be hard to write out, but here goes.

    While pummeling or in close distance:


    Throw a lead cross elbow.

    Then with the arm you elbow'd with, make some room for you to throw a downward elbow.

    Make sure you swim your elbow back down and your hand up, grab the back of the neck (thumb down) and scoop the head towards your other arm throwing one more elbow that crosses your body to his head.

    You actually leave your hands in a perfect spot for a clinch if you didn't level him with the elbows already.

    Note, you could also scoop his head in the other direction and throw an upward elbow across the body right under his chin.

    Nice little 3 elbow combo that we were working on in class a few weeks ago that I have been able to use while clinch and elbow sparring. If you are fast, it works well.

    This or jab, cross to the body and left hook to the head.

    With kicks I like the jab-cross-front leg kick to the inner thigh (of the opponents front leg) and then kinda jump quickly to a low kick to the frontleg with my right leg while it's still coming back down to the ground after the first kicks impact. (sorry, english isn't my native tongue, so these terms aren't that familiar in english... hehe).

    one that seems to often work for me in sparring is the left inside leg kick, overhand right, and left hook. usually the overhand right catches on the jaw or the temple and messes them up for the hook to finish it off.
    2-1 sig bets.

    my favourite combo (as a southpaw) is straight left, right hook to the temple, followed by a strong left hook to the liver. The last hook can generate a lot of power and does good damage

    mcdev, i like your combo too. The left inside kick followed by an overhand right is so natural too. Randy pulled it off quite well against Tim.
