Known as the “Science of Eight Limbs, ” Muay Thai utilizes 8 points of the body: the fists, legs, knees, and elbows – making it one of the most effective martial arts. This intense, whole body workout includes - strengthening the core to execute kicks and knees; toning legs and the upper body to execute punches; building power for explosive movements; and improving aerobic capacity with endurance drills. Learning an ancient art with authentic Thai style teaching, will keep you engaged and motivated while you get into the best shape of your life.
We provide one-on-one training for first-time participants focusing on the basics.
An ALL LEVELS class incorporates:
Jump rope and dynamic stretching (warm up)
Shadow boxing without a partner, using combinations (e.g. strike-block-kick) demonstrated by the instructor.
Partner drills – Each partner takes turn performing the combination while the instructor provides feedback. These drills are done in timed rounds and include the use of Thai pads, heavy bags, focus mitts, and kick pads.
Training is done without injury to participants or their partners through the use of proper equipment and protective gear.
This class is for those students who have built a strong foundation in the All Levels Classes and are ready to hone their Muay Thai/Boxing skills (about six months of consistent training). It is also geared toward people who already have experience under their belts. Endurance and strength-training are at a challenging level. Controlled sparring is covered so students must bring their own mouthpieces, 16 oz. gloves, and shin pads.
