pad Combinations

TBA Techniques



Listed below are a few of Ajarn Chai's Thai pad combinations. Ajarn Chai has some combinations, such as the 4 count series, that are basic building blocks for other combinations. This seems to be unusual among Thai trainers, most of whom have few if any basic building block-type combinations. Many Thai pad combinations can be quite short, while others can get pretty involved. Remember that form, speed & power are much more important than the length of the combination.

In the future we will be adding sections for the combinations of different Thai trainers. This will help you see how different trainers approach combination and pad training.
