Muay Thai boxing is the combat sport of Thailand, also known as ‘The science of 8 limbs’ as it uses stand up striking techniques including punches, elbows, knees and kicks alongside various clinching (grappling) techniques.
This martial art is not only a combat sport, but is great for learning self-defense skills, building confidence and increasing stamina and fitness.
In the Fundamentals class, the main emphasis is working on basic techniques and combinations, predominately on pads and bags and is suitable for beginner levels.
The Mixed Ability class introduces more advanced combinations and techniques on pads, bags and dutch style drills (working with partner), whilst also introducing more footwork, clinch and range techniques. This class is aimed at all levels, but more suited to those with a little experience.
Sparring is an opportunity to apply the techniques learnt in class in a controlled manner.
Some equipment is required in order to train, we do hold a very small amount of spare for those wanting to try sessions before committing to buying their own. Please contact us or speak to one of the coaches if you would like advise on where to buy these.
