Muay Thai Boxing

Thai Kickboxing is an ancient art form which utilizes all of the body’s natural weapons to create a devastating fighting style. It is equally competitive in the ring as it is effective for self-defense. This art differs from Karate and Kung Fu in several respects. In Muay Thai, “conventional forms” do not exist, nor does the practice of “pulling your techniques” before they make impact. Using specially designed pads and no-nonsense training methods, kicks, punches, knees and elbows are practiced full force without holding back. Muay Thai’s no-nonsense approach to training makes the techniques easy to learn and extremely effective for self-defense, regardless of athletic ability. Muay Thai is simple, and stresses conditioning, power and self-defense.
