Muay Thai, also known as Thai Boxing, is the “art of eight limbs” and is one of the most effective striking systems in the world. Learn to throw strikes utilizing not only your fists, but kicking, kneeing, and elbowing. Our Muay Thai class is a great way to teach yourself effective skills while burning calories.
We offer instruction for all levels. Our goal is to help you to excel at your personal best on the mats as well as in life. Check out our YouTube videos below.
If you read our What BJJ Can Do For You, you’ll see that this is a repeated reason and rightfully so! We love to teach what will work in real-life situations. Again, we are not stating that you should be able to scrap in any street fight (please avoid them at all cost), but consistently taking classes in striking will help you to be more confident. Students will learn to effectively and correctly throw strikes as well as learn the techniques and terminology in basic striking.
It might look easy when you’re watching a boxing or MMA match, but trust us when we say that you’ll get a great workout in. Not only is there the physical aspect, but you’ll have the mental workout such as learning names of strikes and executing them quickly. You’ll love this unique workout that also allows you to break a sweat while learning new things. We also think you’ll grow an appreciation for any stand-up professional fighters.
Nailing down the techniques to perfection will take time, but overall, getting started and learning is quite easy. Muay Thai is often introduced to children (especially in Thailand). When you come to class, we teach you the best way to execute your punches and kicks. No matter your age or fitness level, it’s easy to dive right in.
At heart, Muay Thai is a lethal sport and it was born out of war. This martial art was tested in combat and is true in teaching self-defense to those that are dedicated to the sport. This is not a quick cardio kickboxing class where we’re looking to exhaust students. We teach valuable techniques that can be applied in live situations. Most one-time self-defense classes fail to teach people what it’s actually like when someone throws a strike. In our class, we occasionally do light sparring which will toughen you physically and mentally. Students learn how to react and think strategically on their feet.
If you have a medical condition, please consult your doctor before beginning any type of physical training.
