Learn To Fight While Relieving Stress and Getting In INCREDIBLE Shape.
Muay Thai Kickboxing is one of the most effective martial arts for self-defence and one of the most fun ways to get in shape.
Whether you just want a fun way to get in shape, or dream of one day fighting, Muay Thai will supercharge your life!
Empowering, fun and an incredible workout, Muay Thai is “the art of 8 limbs”. Unlike traditional striking arts which mostly teach punches and kicks, Muay Thai teachers the use of elbows and knees as well, more effective in a close-quarters situation.
The power and confidence you feel stays with you when you walk down the street, in the boardroom and in your social life. The changes you see in your body give you a different kind of confidence, that also ripples out.
Taught by passionate, enthusiastic and expertly trained instructors who have actually fought (and won! ?) on the international level, you will be learning techniques and strategies that work. More than just fighters, our instructors care and want you to have fun while learning and growing stronger.
Worried that you’re not in good enough shape to start?
Or that you won’t know anyone and feel out of place?
Or that you won’t “be good” at Muay Thai?
Or, not an aggressive person and less than 100% comfortable with the idea of hitting or getting hit?
Your First Class
On your first class, you’ll be introduced to the instructor and some of the other students. Class begins with a warm-up that you moderate at your own pace until you feel ready to push hard. We want you to feel welcomed, comfortable and challenged – at whatever level you’re starting at.
We know that when we get out of the habit of working out, it can seem intimidating to get back into it (or into it for the first time), and so we do everything we can to make getting started and staying the course easy, fun and rewarding.
