The images in the first series below demonstrate an effective combination from Thai boxing. Gray shirt throws a high right cross, and when blue shirt covers high, gray shirt continues with a low Thai kick to the thigh, a high left horizontal elbow, and a left rising knee to the solar plexus.
In the following series, a simple defense against the low Thai kick is shown. Notice that although the Thai kick is thrown and blocked low, gray shirt's arm is also covering high in case the kick would have been thrown higher.
