    What's everyone's favourite combination to use.

    I was just doing some heavy bag work on my own and I was just playing and I found a combo I really like the flow of.

    It goes. Right body shot, shuffle back with a jab, roundhouse body kick with your rear leg.

    It's funny because as I did I actually remember using it in a match and it worked very well but I'd total,y forgotten it until I did it just before.

    My son is working on trying to incorporate more combos.

    Here is a few of his favorite.

    (He fights as a southpaw). Been working on making sure his lead (right) foot is outside of opponents lead (left) foot.

    Slide to right....Jab or hook to head, straight left to body, pull back enough for front roundhouse kick to head.

    Slide to right....straight left to body, right hook to head....roundhouse kick to body.

    Feign side kick, back hand to head, left straight left hand to body, straight left hand to head.

    I love my hooks. I never use the open hooks that use the momentum of your arm. I only use my hips/waist so my hooks require to be close in but they hit hard and don't leave me exposed. My favourite combos are three left hooks in quick succession because no one ever expects that ****. I also like 2 left hooks followed up by a right cross or uppercut.

    Favorite combo how? Bag work, just throwing in drills, sparring, fighting, competing?

    Maybe it's the same for everyone, I don't know.

    My favorite is the combo that hits my opponent while allowing me not to be hit in return.

    If in close for a tight hook I'd rather use an elbow.

    Same (it feels more natural to me and I think it's safer) but since I haven't trained Muay Thai or anything that involves elbows, yet, I will stick to the correct technique of a hook I learnt from Boxing or I might cause myself harm.
