Muay Thai or Thai Boxing as it is also known, is a fighting style which originated in Thailand (formally Siam) many centuries ago, it is also known as the science of the eight limbs - consisting of the 2 fists, 2 elbows, 2 knees, and 2 shins, this enables Muay Thai to string together unique combinations consisting of punches, kicks, knees and elbows to form an efficient and effective fighting system that is now practiced all over the world. Muay Thai is primarily a standing sport where both fighters are facing each other and trying to deliver a variety of kicks, punches, elbows, and knees in order to score points or knock their opponent out.

The focus of Muay Thai is to be as efficient as possible with accurate kicks and punches to specific areas that will render the fighter unable to provide defense. The emphasis of our Muay Thai classes is to get the student in shape and raise the level of endurance with proven body movement techniques.

The classes also help the student learn valuable self-defense techniques that can be used in the event of a confrontation. Each classes last for 1 to 2 hours. The lesson begins with a 15-20 minute warm-up which incorporates running, punching, kicking, and stretching. The remaining 40 - 80 minutes involves the use of focus mitts and hand held kick shields with conditioning exercises such as sit-ups and push-ups mixed in. Air kicking and punching (drill work) also takes place throughout the class as well as partner work. Protective equipment, such as hand and feet wraps, is worn during training. Sparring (semi-contact fighting) is available at certain times for those who are interested.
