Put martial art moves together in order to create a deadly combo. Learn how to perform some stationary wrist roll combos from our Muay Thai expert in this free video clip.
Now what I want to do is I really want to emphasize with you guys that this is a combination. When you throw it in competition it's going to be thrown a little differently than you would somewhere else. If you're doing this for a regular show, it's going to have a lot more flare, it's going to have a lot more movement because you're on a big stage, you want everyone to see that. But when you're doing this in a small competition ring, you want to make as much big movement as you can without as much body movement. You want the bo to speak for itself. So when you do this combination we start up here, the whole combination combined. We start up in front, our horizontal behind the back wrist roll, back behind, neck roll. Okay? There you have a lot of options to keep in mind for competition. I'm here again, like I said before, you can do baseball swings out, you can go into shoulder combinations, you can reset and go into another strike. But you want to keep in mind that this has to be done intensely. I know it sounds weird to say you have to keep things relaxed and still be intense, but that's the secret behind being able to do things in competition. You need to look like you're about to kill somebody but have your muscles relaxed enough so that you can do things fluidly and for a long period of time. So you start here, around, wrist roll, behind the back, up, neck roll. Notice my upper body barely moves. I have a little torque when I go behind the back but I stay as square as I possibly can. When I do this in a form, I may do this in a forward stance, maybe to the 45, or a side stance trying to face forward, but the same rules still apply. You hit your stance and it's locked. You may do some leans for dramatic effect, but you want to keep things as strong and posted as you can, like you're hitting this horse stance and your legs are rocks. You want to give those illusions. So that combination again -we start here, we come up around, wrist roll, around back, neck roll. Okay? And remember your options here. That's why it's good to train things on other side and things like that because now you have a whole bunch of options from this side. You want to make sure when you're doing this for competition, you drill these things so you can do them comfortably, really comfortably because doing things in front of some people and doing things at a tournament are very, very different. At tournament all your training goes out the window, it's what your body remembers. You can't force something out. You want to make sure that when you're doing it, you can do it without thinking about it.
