What is Muay Thai?
Muay Thai is known as, “the art of eight limbs.” This refers to the eight points of contact used including the fists, elbows, knees, and shins. In Thai culture, Muay Thai is closely linked with Buddhism and the martial art itself emphasizes values such as respect, humility, self-control, and compassion.
Is it suitable for anyone?
Muay Thai is suitable for beginners to advanced, all levels are catered for.
You will learn correct technique from the beginning so no bad habits are developed here!
This class provides excellent conditioning for those wanting to “get fit” however you don’t need to “be fit” to start with! Sparring at the end of the class is optional for those who are confident, otherwise drilling one on one is offered for those still building skill.
