A martial art form that originated from Thailand, also known as the “Art of Eight Limbs,” Muay Thai teaches striking using eight points of contact: feet, knees, elbows, and fists. Muay Thai focuses on body conditioning such as training with Muay Thai pads, focus mitts, heavy bags, and boxing/kickboxing combination drills that use almost every muscle in your body.
Muay Thai strengthens your legs and core, increases flexibility, improves weight-loss, and relieves stress. Whether you want to compete in the sport and get ready for ring competition, or simply learn the art to stay healthy and get stronger, Muay Thai workouts will help you be at your best level of fitness. It’s important to be in on a regular basis in order for martial arts lessons to be effective for learning self-defense.
