Our classes start with a group warm up, varying between jump rope, foot work drills, and shadow boxing. We then move forward with instructed partner drills on pads, or with gloves and shin guards. If you do not have gloves to start, we have some you can borrow while trying out class! The class ends with the option to continue to sharpen your technique, with bag work, and sparring, if you choose.
Our goal for our students is to over time produce conscious knowledge of good form and striking techniques. We aim to build a strong foundation in all of our students. We focus on the importance of good footwork, skill retention, partner pad holding skills, and aiming to master a variety of striking techniques.
Muay Thai, which originates from Thailand, is also referred to as kickboxing. In our Muay Thai program, you will learn the basic techniques of how to throw proper punches, kicks, knees, and elbows. Our focus for our students is practicing the learned technique with proper form to ensure safety, while at the same time, getting in a good workout and having fun!
