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.
Class Format Classes are taught by female qualified instructors. Sessions 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 for ages 8-14.
