Muay Thai is a combat sport that originated in Thailand and is the national sport of Thailand. Muay Thai is also known as the “art of 8 limbs” as you use your fists, shins, knees and elbows for striking, along with clinching techniques, making it one of the most effective and respected martial arts in the world.
Classes start with an intense cardio conditioning warm up. This is then followed by technique drills, pad work, sparring and further conditioning exercises.
Classes are mixed abilities, ranging from beginner to advanced. No experience is necessary to join. Most students who train at 313 started with no (or very little) experience so you’ll fit right in if you’ve never trained before.
For your first few classes all you need are appropriate workout clothes (Shorts, leggings and T-shirt). Gloves and equipment are provided. Once you’ve attended a few classes, we recommend you bring your own gloves and hand wraps. Alternatively, you can purchase these from our 313 stock.
Quick Tip – When buying gloves, we recommend 14oz gloves. NO MMA GLOVES
As you get more advanced you will need your own, hand wraps, gum shield, boxing gloves, head protector, shin/instep protectors and groin protector. Just speak with our instructor when you come down and they will advise you on what to buy and when.
It is important to stay hydrated. We advise you to bring a bottle of water alternatively you can purchase water 313 for 50p.
You can also purchase protein shakes and supplements to complement your training at the 313-fuel bar. Just place your order before the session, so your fuel is ready for when you finish.
