Muay Thai Boxing
“Muay Thai” translates to “the art of the eight limbs”. It is a practical and exciting martial art filled with punches, kicks, knees and elbows. It also has an element of clinch fighting which makes it highly applicable in real life self-defence. As the name suggests, it is the cultural martial art of Thailand and dates back several hundred years, developed as a form of close-combat by tribes. It is still one of the most popular and growing martial arts of today for many reasons such as:
- The great self-defence It provides
- The success it has had in fighting competitions, such as the UFC
- It is a fantastic way to keep fit
- High-energy training techniques making for a fun, rewarding and stress-busting workout!
Our classes blend fitness and technique to suit all abilities and we encourage people of any level of fitness to get involved. This makes it the perfect workout for complete beginners and seasoned fighters alike.
