Muay Thai or Thai Boxing is a combat sport from Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. It’s sometimes referred to as the ‘art of eight limbs’ as you use your fists, elbows, knees and shins to form one of the most effective and powerful martial arts in the world.
Students can take part in either our Basics, Mixed or Advanced/Sparring Muay Thai classes.
All start with an intense conditioning workout and then move on to technique drills, pad work, sparring (on Tuesdays and Thursdays), and further conditioning exercises.
If you’ve never trained before then we’d encourage you to come along to the gym and watch what the sessions involve or take part in a Basics class. Most students who train here started with no (or very little) experience so you’ll fit right in.
For your first few classes all you’ll need are shorts and a t-shirt (as you’re welcome to borrow our boxing gloves) although if you have your own wraps, gloves etc. please bring them along too.
As you get more experienced you will need hand wraps, a gum shield, boxing gloves, a head protector, shin/instep protectors and either a groin or chest protector. Just speak with our instructor when you come down though and they’ll advise you on what to buy and when.
Potential students are welcome to try out one of our classes for free. Just click on the ‘Free First Class’ button and let us know when you’d like to come down. Please note though that we do ask for at least 2 days notice.
